FS: Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680 Complete Set

Finding a 1680 in a strictly original state is a challenge, and if, in addition, it comes in full set, it is a miracle.

Here is a 1680 from 1978, watch is in exceptional condition with ALL its original features: very thick case, beautiful dial Mark 2 and needles with eggshell patina, metal date brushed with open 6 and 9, fat insert font, tritium ball, 93150 armored bracelet, even the triple lock of the crown is the original one: type 1 (without the seal on the tube, type 2, which will appear on the Sub from 1979). Most of the 1680s no longer have their original triple lock, because it seems that these were replaced systematically by type 2 by Rolex during revisions.

In addition, it comes with its Rolex stamped certificate, its original box, anchor 200m and the calendar for the year of its sale: 1978.

Its price is $9,000 Payment only in cash, bank transfer.

I have plenty of refs if required by the buyer, and I hope the buyer has too before asking.

A 5 days return policy stated.

Thanks to everyone on the forum especially the MODs.
