Rolex Submariner Ref. 1680 Unpolished

Sale price$15,450.00 USD

Straight Facts

The Rolex submariner has to be the most iconic watch ever produced. Its influence spans from its role in the first film production of James Bond (starring Sean Connery with his “Big Crown” Submariner) to its input on practically every dive watch produced since its inception. The Ref. 1680 is special however - it is the first Submariner to ever feature a date complication and recently its popularity has skyrocketed amongst serious collectors. Not only is the reference 1680 a landmark reference in the illustrious history of the brand, it also happens to be one of their most accurate, boasting an impressive superlative chronometer rating. This example is in spectacular condition. Its case is razor sharp unpolished and its dial is absolutely mint with homogenous pumpkinpatina throughout its puffy lume plots and iconic Mercedes handset. Not to mention its gorgeous original fat font mark 3 insert is in superb shape. This is a truly special piece and I coudln’t be happier to offer it in the Watch Shop!

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
