Why We Love it

Why We Love It

There are vintage Submariners, and there are vintage Submariners. This beautiful Red 1680 is very much one of the latter.

The word 'unpolished' gets thrown around a lot in this community - more often than not inappropriately. But the Submariner Date we have here is the real deal - an untouched, unpolished case that shows beautifully defined beveling and the right amount of wear to prove its age and authenticity. No spin, no hype - just a great, honest watch.

Matched up with a richly patinated dial and accompanying handset, and including its period box, 'Sub 200' information card and punched papers, this is a Red Sub worthy of the term 'Collector Grade'. 

Don't settle for a 'yes, but...' watch!

The Story

The first Rolex Submariner was launched in 1954 and has been in continuous production ever since, making it one of the longest running models of any timepiece made. Ever.

Of course, today, Rolex Submariners are significantly more… bling. With white gold surrounds and glossy black dials, the Submariner of today has become a status symbol and a piece of jewelry.

But from it’s origin, the Rolex Submariner was a stripped down tool watch, designed with one mission in mind. The clean, matte black dial and symmetrical hour plots was the hallmark of sub-aquatic, form-meets-function design. For decades, the Submariner was not a collectible Rolex; it was seen as a hardy watch chosen by those who needed something that could take a beating. And it did.
