Rolex Submariner 1680 MK1 Maxi Dial Ghost Bezel


For us it takes a lot to beat a vintage Submariner with a Mk1 maxi dial and some cool patina on the amazing oversized hour markers.

When this look is combined with a ghost bezel insert, its not only maxi dial, but maxi sexiness on the wrist!

This 1680 is a truly great example with a nice case with good lugs and crown guards.
The Mk1 matte dial is outstanding with a yellow patina on the hour plots and hands, which are a good match.
The inlay has naturally faded to a ghost hue, which is one of our Bulang signatures…we can’t say enough how cool these look on a vintage Sub !
The inlay has a later luminova pearl fitted. The solid link Oyster bracelet, reference 93150, is in very good condition with 580 endlinks and clasp stamped ‘AB 2’. The movement has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.

There is a whole lotta love for vintage Subs at Bulang and Sons. Please get in touch so as we can hook you up with your dream watch.

Our Service

Each vintage timepiece is individually selected and carefully inspected by our team of experts. After we buy a watch it is mechanically inspected and fully checked by our watchmaker. If necessary, the movement will be fully serviced and tested to ensure it is running to our exacting standards.

We will always describe the watch as fully as we can in our sales texts. Our zoomable images are of the highest possible quality and form an important part of each watch’s description. We will never hide or cover up any element of any watch we sell.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.

Our Warranty

We offer a one-year warranty on the mechanical function of the watch, starting from the day of purchase. We do not guarantee the waterproof nature of any (vintage) watch, unless expressly made in writing. Therefore, our warranty will not cover any damage done to the case and/or movement by water or moisture entering the watch. Our warranty does not apply to accidental damage or mishandling of your watch and does not extend to the bracelet, case parts (including pushers, winding stem, crown and bezel), watch glass, dial and hands.
