Rolex Red Submariner "Tropical" Box and Papers

Ref. 1680: Wow! What a watch. This is a gorgeous example of a tropical red sub that happens to come with its original double punched papers. The dial has faded to an even and rich chocolate brown color that is strikingly beautiful. A real exceptional example, this would be the perfect watch for any serious sub collector, or any tropical dial aficionado.


Case has lugs that are thick with a soft beveled edge still visible. Minimal wear between lugs. Numbers are clean and visible. The bezel has a pearl that is slightly broken but still present.


Gorgeous tropical dial in excellent shape. The dial exhibits great charisma and is simply stunning. No surface marks visible, tritium is a very light cream color with matching hands.


Comes on a 7836 folded bracelet with a standard oyster clasp. It has 280 ends and 12 links. There is minimal stretch. *While Subs typically come on flip lock bands, the original owner has stated that this is the band he got when purchased. The bracelet clasp has been replaced at some point with a later style but un-dated one.
