Rolex Red Submariner "Box and Papers"

REF. 1680

A great complete example of Red Submariner! Rolex's first Submariner with a date, the 1680 was produced for a long time, and with many different dial variations. This particular one was produced circa 1970, and is in excellent condition. Comes with inner and outer box, booklets, casebook sticker, punched guarantee paper, etc. (Unfortunately the serial number is obscured on the green hang tag.) Even the original price tag is affixed to the outer box!

Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542 "Ultra Tropical Dial"

REF. 6542

Wow. This is a watch that needs to be seen to be believed. There are no superlatives in the English language that can effectively describe the beauty of this piece. Featuring a ultra brown caramel tone dial and original bakelite bezel insert, this is truly a stunner. This is the ultimate GMT, and would bee the centerpiece of any advanced collection. We have yet to see another so beautiful, and not sure when we'll see another like it.

The Horological Minute
feat. Eric Wind
Today we sit down and chat with Eric Wind, one of the contributors for our favorite watch related website, Hodinkee. In addition to his weekly "What's Selling Where" column, Eric is a horological historian of sorts- he has written some great articles about historical pieces, including the Eisenhower Datejust. He also recently assisted us at 10 Past Ten in researching a very special presentation Datejust. Outside of watches, Eric is a director at a biofuel company, and recently finished his MBA at the University of Oxford. A true enthusiast of vintage watches and especially historical ones, Eric is this week's Horological Minute.
