Find a better one – we dare you…

The Red Sub has always been an important piece for vintage Rolex sports watch collectors and we believe that this is maybe the best we’ve ever had !

The dial is a rare meters-first example that has turned a wonderful shade of brown whilst remaining in mint condition. The hours and hands are a rich vanilla hue, adding mega cool vintage vibes to this watch. The fat font bezel insert has faded to a blue/grey shade. The case is also in great shape. Could it get any better?

This rare and beautiful watch comes with its original inner box, punched papers, translation papers and wallet. The folded link Oyster bracelet, ref 9315, is in great condition and has reference 280 endlinks. The clasp is a rare and desirable error printed “PATETED”, where patented has been mis-spelt and is stamped ‘4 70’. The watch has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.
