Our opinion: A beautiful example of the vintage red Submariner date reference 1680. A must have of any Rolex collection, model produced until 1975, this watch is part of the mark V feet first open 6s series, serial number 302XXXX, last series of feet first. The watch is in good condition, its original mk5 dial has a superb vanilla patina with the red clearly visible. The hands are matching and the pearl more recent and not original! Rare watch in this condition because almost all of them were worn out at that time. A very nice collector's copy and in very good condition with its later added oyster bracelet but more comfortable to wear.
