This late 1969 Meters First Red Submariner is a beautiful example of the Mark II variant and in excellent overall condition - serial number is 2,216,XXX. This is one of two Red MF Subs I own and both were purchased after close examination by reputable forums members. Here are the details of this one:

Dial - Meters First Red Mark II in excellent condition with no chips, drag or tool marks. Red submariner text is beautifully sharp and consistent.

Hands and Plots – Nice cream color tritium and evenly matched.

Bezel insert – Correct and very nice fat font with very very light signs of age.

Crystal – Correct small bevel edged cyclops top hat.

Case - Excellent condition case with beautiful bevels, thick lugs and crown guards. The case was professionally restored by LAWW in August 2017 (receipt will be provided).

Caseback - Stamped 1680 and III.69

Bracelet - Correct 9315, 12 links, 280 endlinks and clasp code dated 4/71. Bracelet has "Pateted" misspelled divers extension.

Watch was fully serviced and pressure tested on August 2017. I’m very careful with my watches and would recommend avoiding contact with water with these vintage watches. This sale is for watch and bracelet only - no box, papers or accessories. These meters first Red Subs in this condition are hard to find.

Available for $27,500 including shipping CONUS. 2 day return from the date of signed receipt and only if the watch is not as described or pictured. Lots of positive references.
