Hi everyone!

Up for sale is this perfect mint+ condition 1978 model Rolex Submariner Date Ref: 1680. I just the bought the watch a month ago from the great staff at Craft & Tailored, but a good opportunity to get a red submariner came up so I'm selling this one now:

The watch still has 11 months of warranty from them and the watch comes with a unused and high quality leather band as seen in the pictures below.

The listing price was $ 8650 from the store and I'm offering it for only ** $ 7900 ** for this amazing example of a ref 1680. If you're looking for a collectors watch look no further, this is the best deal on the market for a mint condition vintage Submariner Date, in top shape mechanically and cosmetically.

Payment is welcome by PayPal and wire transfer. Upon agreement the full set will be with you in 1-2 days.

You may choose any shipment method but just to let you know I had very good experiences with DHL Express. I can document the shipment process if you'd like to do that as well.

And finally before the pictures, if you'd like to see some references, I bought and sold many watches here on WUS and got many great references, here is one of them:


The lightly polished case of this 1978 Ref. 1680 is in excellent condition. 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.


The matte dial is in pristine and original condition. The lume has achieved a desirable yellow 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 backed by a 1-year warranty of accurate timekeeping.

Thanks for looking!
