Rolex 1680
Submariner Date
Tropical "Purple Haze"

Year 1977 Stock no. 12297


This is why we love vintage... This solid 18ct yellow gold Submariner Date from 1977 has aged incredibly, with the original blue soleil dial turning a rich purple with a gold centre sunburst over the years. Sealing the deal as a strong investment, is the fact that the rugged 18ct Oyster case has been well cared for over the years, retaining its imposing dimensions and original 93150 bracelet (with 1978 date code). Adding to the rarity and exotic provenance of this important divers watch is the 'C' symbol discreetly located on the underside of one of the lugs, informing us this beautiful rare watch was originally delivered by Rolex to Venezuela.
