Our opinion: A sublime example of the vintage Submariner date reference 1680, The Rolex Submariner with date and red writing. A must-have in a Rolex collection, produced until 1975, this watch is part of the first mark IV series of feet first, serial number 265XXXX just after the meter first. The watch is in perfect condition, its original mk4 dial has a superb vanilla-yellow patina with the red clearly visible on white, which is thicker to the eye. The hands are a little lighter than the indexes! A rare watch in this condition, as they were almost all diving watches at the time. A beautiful collector's item in near-new condition, with its original folded oyster bracelet and genuine period full set with double-punched papers, box on box, revisions, sticker, manual, booklet and revision by the same owner in Australia, a museum piece with its complete accessories. A must-have for any fine collection, as so few full sets have survived to the present day.
