Rolex Submariner 1680 Red MKI Dial from 1969
The Rolex Submariner with red lettering is becoming increasingly difficult to come by. Two details contribute to its current status as an "it" watch, those are its aesthetic beauty and rarity. The 1680 Submariner here belongs to the highly elusive MKI series of production. To put the watch in perspective - Rolex only produced the MKI 1680 Red for a period of 1 year from 1969 to 1970 or serials 2.0 to 2.2 million. Within the world of the 1680 "Red" this beauty here is the undisputed king.
