  • Description
This is why we love vintage... This solid 18K Yellow Gold Rolex Submariner Date Ref. #1680/8 with Tropical Dial circa 1977 is guarenteed to make a lasting impression! In the vintage Rolex world, the term "Tropical" points out that the dial has discolored due to chemical reactions caused by external factors such as sunlight. This is a very desirable, therefore, highly collectible and precious feature. This stunning timepiece has aged incredibly, with the original blue soleil dial turning a rich purple with a gold center sunburst over the years. Sealing the deal as a strong investment is the fact that the rugged 18K Yellow Gold Oyster case has been well cared for over the years, retaining its imposing dimensions and original 93150 bracelet.
First introduced in 1969, the yellow gold divers' watch ref. # 1680/8. 1680 is the reference for the first Submariner Date and the "/8" at the end of a reference indicates that the watch is made in 18k Yellow Gold. This reference came with either a black bezel and dial or a blue bezel and dial. Many of the dials, however, show strong patina, which is referred to as "tropical". In this case, the dial was once blue and has taken on a caramel-brown color, which just matches perfectly with the gilt writing.
This watch offered dates back to 1977, runs on the caliber 1575, and is in absolute pristine condition, and has been excellently preserved in its box throughout all this time! It has a beautiful ‘Nipple Dial’, which are the round, applied hour markers made from 18k Yellow Gold and with a protruding shape. Hence, the nickname. The watch comes on its original 18k Yellow Gold Oyster bracelet, which is a very rare one as it even has an 18k Yellow Gold divers extension. The watch is completely original and can’t be missed in a vintage Rolex collection!
