Description

1970 Rolex Red Submariner (Ref. 1680) "Mk. IV Dial" With Box and Papers

The Rolex Submariner Ref. 1680 is a stunning classic. First introduced in 1969, the Ref. 1680 includes the date, unlike previous Submariners (ie. Ref. 5512 and 5513). The Infamous Red Submariner is also a Ref. 1680 which had the word "Submariner" in red lettering which was produced by Rolex from 1969-1975.

The Mark IV dial differentiates itself with the following which can be seen in the text located above the 6 o'clock – starting with a serial number that falls in the correct range for this type of dial. The red lettering on white and distinctive open “6” are the notable characteristics of the Mk. IV Dial. The Mk. IV was the earliest "feet first" red submariner.

This 1970 Red Submariner is in stunning overall condition and is a full set including its original box, punched papers, booklets, and pamphlets. This specific example would make an excellent and versatile daily driver while maintaining a highly collectible value due to the fact it has retained all of its accessories.

CASE & BRACELET

The strong case is believed to remain unpolished showing honest wear and factory chamfer still intact. The "fat-font" bezel insert has faded to a beautiful grey/blue coloration and remains in excellent condition, retaining its original tritium pearl at the 12 o'clock position which matches the dial nicely. The Rolex 9315 folded-link Oyster bracelet with 380 end pieces remains in excellent condition and shows some stretch from use which is common for bracelets from this era.

DIAL & HANDS

The matte black Mk. IV Red Submariner dial is in remarkable condition. The lume has taken on an excellent creamy yellow patina and shows no lume degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no lume degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The silver date wheel is era correct with open 6's and 9's.

ACCESSORIES

This 1970 Red Submariner comes complete with it's original inner and outer boxes, punched warranty papers, instruction booklets and pamphlets, anchor, and caseback sticker. The watch is running at spec but extended service history is unknown.
