1978 model Rolex Submariner Date Ref: 1680.
I just the bought the watch about six months ago and it originally came from Craft & Tailored.

I have decided to move on so am putting it up for sale.

This is an amazing example of REF: 1680 with amazing Patina.

Price: $8650 + Shipping and PayPal, etc.

REFERENCES: I have done about a 10 to 12 transaction here on WUS - buying and selling.

The lightly polished case of this 1978 Ref. 1680 is in excellent condition with light wear from use. The bezel is in very good condition and retains a luminova pearl at the 12 o'clock position. Watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap. There is NO bracelet.
Please note I also replaced the strap and will include the one is the first picture as well.

The matte dial is in pristine and original condition. The lume has achieved a desirable yellow/peach patina, showing no lume degradation when inspected under UV. The hands have aged slightly lighter than the dial and show no lume degradation under UV. The silver date wheel has the era correct open 6's and 9's.

The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC spec.
