Inquire

This 1979 Rolex Submariner Ref. 1680 in 18k is one of the most insane tropical dials we have ever seen. The original blue "nipple" dial has taken on one of the most stunning "tropical" effects showing blue, purple, red, gold and orange hence the reason we have dubbed this the "Hot Lava" dial. The watch is in overall stunning condition as the lugs are full and fat with all of the gold hallmarks clearly visible on the underside of the lugs. The original blue insert retains the pearl at the 12 o'clock position and the tritium filled hands show no lume loss or lume degradation. This piece is not only rare due to the fact that it is an 18K YG Ref 1680 submariner but also due to the fact that the dial has taken on such a rare and unique patina.

This is an executive and exclusive piece that is sure to turn heads and be a stand out in even the most established collection of vintage timepieces.
