Note: An all original 1680 Submariner White Mark III. This model came with 3 different dial variations (Marks: 1, 2, 3). Mark III is by far the rarest one of the three. This watch is one of the few available Mark 3 examples in the market. It has never been polished, its natural aging beauty and Patina gives it a unique look. The dial is intact and has full creamy tritium matching hands and indexes. Bracelet (Ref. 93150) Clasp (Code: VC), and Bezel (Mark III) are all era correct and proof this is an all original submariner without service or replaced parts. In addition, this watch features the 1570 caliber which is rare as well (most 1680 came with caliber 1575). This piece is a must to any 1680 collector.
