Rolex Submariner 1680 ‘Single Red’ Steel 1972

Rolex Submariner 1680 ‘Single Red’ – The model comes with a stainless steel case, size 40mm, black dial on a stainless steel oyster bracelet and powered by an automatic movement. This Rolex is in good condition for a vintage watch, circa 1972.

The Rolex Submariner 1680 was produced approximately during the period of 1967 to 1979 and was the model that followed the incredibly popular 5513. This watch has a Mark V Dial and is commonly known as a “Single Red” or “Red Submariner” due to the red writing on the dial and would date to before 1973 when the red writing was no longer used and Rolex reverted back to white writing on the dial. Quite a number of these Red Submariners have had their dial changed during a later Rolex Service, to a white dial of the period, making an original Red Dial Submariner rare.

The Rolex Submariner 1680 is the final Submariner with a calibre 1575 movement. It was the first submariner model to contain a date and cyclops window, magnifying the date by 2.5 times.

The watch comes on with a Rolex oyster bracelet (reference 93150) with extension links.
