I'm sure that many of you who know me know that as of late I've been dipping my toe in the vintage Rolex pool and having a little fun with it. Well, the 1680 Red Sub has always been a grail of sorts for me, and thanks to the advice from a good friend, I finally took the plunge and made it happen.

Here she is:







This one has been a long time coming (been wanting one of these for a couple years now), and once I decided to finally go after one (thanks Jose!!!) I knew it had to be a special one. So, as you can see, the one that I found fit the bill (I think). Nice patina, great beveled lugs, perfectly faded insert...I LOVE this thing!

It's rare that you build a watch up in your mind, and when it finally arrives it actually EXCEEDS your expectations. But this one has done exactly that!

Enjoy the pics!

-Taylor

I started out collecting vintage Rolex mostly pre 50's before I get into Panerai. Never have interest on model vintage except Submariner. This RED is very beautiful.

I recently also bought a 16660 and should arrive tomorrow.
