This time I am sharing an antique gold watch of the Submariner type. Its model is 1680/8. The production period was between 1969 and 1979. It is the first gold watch of the Submariner type. The all-gold model of this four-digit model is prevalent now, and because Ref.1680/8 was very expensive at the time, its circulation was minimal, and it is also the model that many watch friends are looking for now. One, so its market is also slowly rising.
The date of the watch and whether it has a strap make a big difference in the market price so that you can choose a look with a suitable product according to your budget. The 1973 Ref.1680/8 in the picture is matched with a Mark V bezel and belt, which makes its price more affordable. If you look closely at the dial, it is a Mt. Fuji black dial with a good atmosphere. Although some subtle grains are viewed with a magnifying glass, they can be ignored entirely when viewed with the naked eye, and there is no peeling off the edge of the dial that is often seen in this era. The all-gold watch has many dial versions, and the one in the picture is a good watch that matches the year. Let me briefly explain the Mt. Fuji noodles, also called barnacle noodles. They existed in the Greenwich-type series and Submariner models produced from the 1960s to the 1980s, like barnacles perched on coastal rocks. Fake Rolex for sale.
It was mentioned before that the bezel is a Mark Ⅴ. Usually, it is matched with a Mark Ⅲ bezel in this era. However, many bezels of the all-gold model have been replaced for some reason. That is to say, the evaluation after changing to a Service bezel will be significantly reduced. However, although the bezel of this watch is a Service bezel, it is also precious because it was exchanged in the 1980s (that is, the all-gold Mark V bezel). Swiss models replica watches.
Although the case has some traces of polishing, the shape is still very full, and the lug holes on the side are not deformed. Of course, due to the problem of gold texture, there are inevitably some tiny scratches and bump marks, but because it is a scarce all-gold watch, it is better to keep the status quo as much as possible without polishing.
