Notes

 The red Submariner was produced from 1969 until 1975 when the firm introduced the white dial version. Starting with meter firsts dial, they were quickly replaced by the feet first dials until the end of the production. This example dated 1970 shows thick lugs, great matching patina to the dial and hands as well as its original box, punched warranty, cigarette card, an extremely desirable set.
