Here we have an extremely nice Rolex Red Sub from the 4th quarter of 1972.
A really beautiful piece with excellent case in very clean condition and free from all corrosion.
The lugs are really full and thick retaining the Rolex bevel edges.
The beautiful red writing dial has open 6’s and super clear print with dial plots and matching hands that are a gorgeous deep creamy tone. The bezel is in great condition rotating smoothly and the insert is free from scratches and has a matching creamy tritium pearl.
A 3.2m serial dates the watch to 1972 and the caseback is stamped iv 72 confirming a 1972 build date.
The watch has no original paperwork but has service marks inside the case showing services in 1992 and 2006 and keeps great time.
Red subs seem to be flavour of the month once more but finding really nice ones keeps getting harder and harder.
If you are 40 this year this would be a pretty special watch to celebrate with also!
