Rolex Red Submariner "Box and Papers"

REF. 1680

A great complete example of Red Submariner! Rolex's first Submariner with a date, the 1680 was produced for a long time, and with many different dial variations. This particular one was produced circa 1970, and is in excellent condition. Comes with inner and outer box, booklets, casebook sticker, punched guarantee paper, etc. (Unfortunately the serial number is obscured on the green hang tag.) Even the original price tag is affixed to the outer box!

Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542 "Ultra Tropical Dial"

REF. 6542

Wow. This is a watch that needs to be seen to be believed. There are no superlatives in the English language that can effectively describe the beauty of this piece. Featuring a ultra brown caramel tone dial and original bakelite bezel insert, this is truly a stunner. This is the ultimate GMT, and would bee the centerpiece of any advanced collection. We have yet to see another so beautiful, and not sure when we'll see another like it.

Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675 "Box and Papers"

REF. 1675

A very clean example of the always desirable 1675 GMT-Master, this one features a very complete "set". Double punched papers, original brochure, and even the outside box sticker! The well faded bezel insert makes a great contrast with he rich black color of the MK1 "Long L" dial. A real winner.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Zenith Movement "Last Series B+P"

REF. 16520

One of the most desirable examples of a Daytona, this watch is an A9 serial, meaning that it was one of the very last ones produced. Featuring a luminova dial combined with a solid-endlink bracelet, this represents the last iteration and final configuration of the venerable Zenith Daytona. A complete set with inner and outer boxes, and guarantee papers and other epherma.
