Notes

Supplied new to the retailer Nerfertiti in Cairo, this 1680 has been unworn. Still with its original punched warranty, the case shows no polish, the bracelet still as tight as the day it was supplied and the dial as well as the luminous pearl have all aged do a wonderful patina. An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a Submariner sold over 40 years ago in new condition with only the caseback sticker having aged with time.
