    Vintage submariner price check?

    Can a guru give me a rough guide price on this one, it's a 1977 1680 sub, all original, no box or papers, missing it's trit pip, and by the looks of it has open six date wheel, it is from a trusted source.

    Was watching an auction for one on eBay the other week, that went for £10,400! This one looks less together though but Iíd imagine itís got to be around £9k?

    1680

    As inferred by others, probably about the £8.5/9k in a private sale.

    Sold my own 1680 last year with box and service history, went private after having offers of £5k from WF and Watch club. Certainly private sale is the way to go.

    I didnít realise these were available at this kind of price - why would you grovel your way onto an AD waiting list for a modern version when you could have one of these instead?! GLWTS

    Vintage submariner price check?

    A lovely one was listed on this forum a few weeks ago at £9800 and that sold pretty sharpish.

    That had service papers and the original purchase receipt (but no original papers) so worth a bit of a premium on no box and papers.

    Somewhere between £8000 and £9000 sounds about right depending on the rest of the watch.

    Dial looks lovely but hard to tell much else based on the picture posted. If the case is good and it has the correct bracelet, end links, Crystal etc then should be towards the top estimate.

    Am I the only one who thinks the date wheel has come from a comedy watch, what other surprises does it hold.

    I'd say yes, you are probably the only one.

    I'd say it is just a photo that does the watch absolutely zero favours.

    Could it possibly be an aftermarket crystal Bob making the 6 look wonky.
    Did the white 1680's have Top Hat crystals?
    I'll stick with that lovely red 1680 I got from you though.

    Just looks all wrong even with a bit of crystal defraction, as far as I am aware it should be a top hat but never bothered with a white so cant be certain. Yep that red is a beauty, keep wearing it in good health Jim.

    It should be a top hat. Its possible that it IS a top hat that has seen a lot of scars and polywatch which has distorted the date, BUT, without clearer photos its hard to say, the angle is dreadful.
    The dial and hands look good and the case looks meaty.
    Its definitely a project and id factor that in to costings, id agree 8-9k depending on what closer inspection throws up.
    Im tight AF so id go in at low to mid 8's and grudgingly work upwards.

    Not sure about the bracelet either. Those two spare links don't look right and as commented there appears to be no end links at all. I suspect that's just a generic bracelet, in which case worthless and it would cost the best part of a grand for a correct replacement from Rolex.
