    Hi all,

    I seek to tap on your expertise on vintage rolex as i'm looking to purchase a 1680. Hope fellow members can help.

    Have managed to find out some surface info on the watch from the seller and online
    - its a mark 2 dial
    - case and bracelet serial reference state both are from around 1979
    - 580 endlink and 93150 bracelet
    - model and serial numbers are clear
    - case remains sharp
    - thin font bevel insert

    apart from the internal check, the watch seems ok. is there anything i missed ?

    Unfortunately, i'm unable to post a picture of the watch

    Good that you found something you like.
    Not too sure what you are checking for or about.

    Just note that since quite several months back, i have spotted fake ones ( 1680, 5513, 1675) floating in market
    Gen movement and even gen dial but fake cases.

    This is not to say that the watch you found is fake.

    Just trying to preserve and protect the vintage Rolex community as much as possible

    Please make sure you know your seller well enough
    And that your sellers knows vintage Rolex well enough

    Enjoy you vintage Rolex journey....
    Cheers

    thanks for your reply.

    unfortunately, i did not get the watch. i backout at the last minute after realising the case did not match the watch.

    There's so much to vintage rolex plus my previous bad experience, i gave up in finding one that fits my criteria.
