1978 Rolex Submariner MK1 Dial Ref. 1680 (with Service Paper from Rolliworks from 2019)
Ivory Patina - this very crisp and mint example of a Rolex Submariner 1680 has it in it. The condition of this watch deserves a "wow" in every aspect.The case is fat and sharp with well defined and beautifully beveled lugs. The area between the lugs is unmolested and bears fully intact numbers. The almost flawless MK1 dial is retained very well. The Tritium has consistently aged to a Ivory color and is matching with the hands. The original and matching Oyster bracelet is in equally mint condition and only shows very little wear from age. Last but not least the bezel holds a Super Fat Font insert which complements the aesthetics of the dial. This 1680 will make you hold your breath, its one of the nicest we had.
|Case||Excellent case that has been lightly polished. The lugs remain straight and with sharp and prominent bevels. The numbers between the lugs are crisp and fully intact. The correct black super fat font bezel insert is in excellent condition and only shows minimal wear from age.|

Released in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair, the Submariner was the first watch to be water-resistant to 100m. The most recognizable watch in the Rolex line-up. The Submariner is characterized by its iconic black dial and diving bezel. A tool watch with a strong Rolex DNA, the Submariner is not only the most iconic Rolex, but probably the most iconic watch of all time.
