The Rolex Submariner is arguably one of the most sought after and collectable Rolex models in the world today, and here is a fantastic vintage Rolex Submariner 1680 dating from 1978 that has the right look and feel to it, that looks even more amazing on the wrist. The prices of vintage Rolex watches of the same model vary so much due to one major aspect - the dial. Whereas the coveted red Submariner will have the same 1680 designation, the price for a genuine "red sub" will be considerably more due to this one feature alone. Up until 1976 the word "Submariner" was in red and then changed to being white. The dial has started to achieve a lovely soft patina on the index markers which will just get better with age and is waht gives these classic vintage Rolex watches their distinct look and character. Fitted in the iconic 40mm watch case that has not changed for decades, the case back is also the original with the 1680 stamping as sometimes these were changed by Rolex for whatever reason and can often be found with different numbers on the case back. With the original Rolex Oyster band with the numbering 93150 and 580 end links all in great condition, inside is the beautiful 26 jewelled Rolex calibre 1570 that runs perfect and comes with our twelve month warranty. This is a spectacular example of a highly sought after Rolex and one that when on the wrist will always get the attention that it rightly deserves.

The Rolex Submariner is such an iconic model by Rolex, and here we have a great transitional 18ct gold and steel Rolex Submariner reference 16803. Referred to as a â€śtransitionalâ€ť model, this is due that the fact that the previous model, the Rolex 1680 was fitted with an acrylic crystal and rated to a depth of 200m. Then Rolex produced this Rolex Submariner 16803 which was fitted with the sapphire crystal which also allowed its depth rating to be increased to 300m. This was also the first model made in 18ct gold and stainless steel. This model was only produced for 4 years until Rolex introduced the Rolex Submariner 16613 making this quite a rare model to find. Still made in the iconic 40mm case plus the Rolex screw down crown, it is fitted on the Rolex Oyster band which is in great condition. Inside there is the 27 jewelled automatic Rolex calibre 3035 that has just come back from a full service and comes with our twelve month warranty.
