1978 Rolex Submariner Date (1680)

Vintage & Pre-Owned Watches
Style No: 450220

A vintage Rolex Submariner is something every watch aficionado should own. With its iconic design, rugged good looks and just the right amount of patina, it is basically the ideal collectible timepiece!

Dating to 1978, this vintage Submariner was just fully serviced and includes its original folded-link Oyster bracelet. The case has been previously refinished but is in excellent condition, and the original bezel has faded to a slightly purplish-grey, and the dial has a pale vanilla patina. The hour and minute hands are later service replacements but the seconds hand is original. All in, a handsome and reliable companion that’s ready for another 40+ years of enjoyment! Sorry, no boxes or papers with this one.
