The Pumpkin 1680 - this very strong 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 near flawless MK1 dial is in great condition with Tritium Luminuous that has consistently aged to a Pumpkin color and is matching with the hands. Last but not least the bezel holds an incredible insert with a bluish hue and complements the aesthetics of the dial. This 1680 will make you hold your breath, its so good on the wrist.

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.
