Coming soon we have a beautiful one family owned collector set vintage 1978 Rolex 1680 Submariner Date watch. It comes with extensive Rolex service history and has been serviced by Rolex UK in the last 12 months so has the remaining balance of the 2 year Rolex International Warranty.
A 5.3m serial watch first sold in the UK in 1978, it is in superb overall condition and with that lovely vintage patina you simply don’t get on a ‘new’ watch.
The case is super fat and completely mark free with those amazing bevels that only Rolex UK seem to be able to do correctly.
The dial and hands are mint with the matte dial now a beautiful deep grey tone that is complimented by the creamy hour plots and matching hands.
The set includes the original box, original issued guarantee paper showing the punched serial number and additional Rolex Guarantee Papers from 2004, 2011 and 2015.
A great collector set that should continue to rise in value in the long term as these become rarer and still harder to find (it’s pretty hard to find them now!!)
