#TBT THE ROLEX RED SUBMARINER – THE FIRST SUB WITH A DATE
Damn you Rolex. Ok, more specifically, damn you “vintage” Rolex. I don’t want to like you, I really don’t, because somany others are in love with you and have made you dangerous to buy and a prohibitively expensive process along the way. Plus, you go and change one silly detail here or there like a font – often likely without a ton of consideration on how the market will react (in this case “would have reacted) – and people go nuts. I mean seriously nuts. Today’s #TBT looks at a watch with a small little detail that collectors love and it’s a watch that I kind of accidentally backed into about five years ago. Let’s talk about the well-known ref.1680 Rolex Red Submariner. Actually, and I’ll not repeat it, but just because I’m a pain, this is actually a Submariner Date. ?
