Rolex RED LETTER Submariner Design 1680.

The RED LETTER Submariner is an item that most collectors of Rolex watches have an intense desire to own.  Most of the time when you find just the dial only listed for sale, they usually go for around $3000.00 to $4000.00 based on condition.

This one came into our shop for service only.  The customer wanted the crystal left original and only polished.  Beyond that we serviced the movement and replaced the gaskets.

The movement was in very good condition.  The owner had not worn the watch in over 20 years.  Due to this the movement was in very good condition and showed no signs of wear.

The movement is a 1570.

Movement serial number 46784

The original bezel insert is missing the small pearl marker at the 12 position.

The crystal was lightly polished to remove scratches.  Note some of the chips around the edge of the crystal.  We also installed a new aftermarket band.
