Offered for sale is a stunning and incredibly rare Rolex Ref. 1680 RED SUBMARINER FAP (Fuerza Aerea Del Peru). Specially commissioned from Rolex for military issue by the Peruvian Air Force. FAP production ran 3 years for from 1971 through 1974 with only approximately 700-800 models that were produced. This is a MK3 (Mark 3) with 3.7 million serial number denoting 1974 production. Please see all 12 photos. Due to its scarcity, this is a very unique and desirable 1680 Red Submariner model. The case and caseback are both stamped with the same serial number, it is a matching numbers watch. Upon close inspection, the inside caseback shows two service dates, one from 1982 and the other from 1992. It is featured here with a surprisingly well preserved and unpolished 40mm case with only light, age appropriate wear. It has sharp lug holes and sharp, correct beveled case edges, excellent stampings, signed and hallmarked caseback. Original Singer Tritium dial w/ beautiful cream patina and cream Mercedes hands. The Rolex Cal. 1570 movement condition is simply excellent, very clean and numbered D729139. Correct Rolex Oyster 93150 bracelet with correct Rolex 580 end links. The crystal is very clean and has been buffed a few times, there is some partial distortion over the cyclops (magnifier) portion of the lens when viewing the date but we chose not to replace it. The crystal is probably the least expensive part to replace on this watch. The Oyster bracelet is surprisingly good w/ fully adjustable folding deployant buckle and built in wetsuit/dive extender. It shows only very light stretch and is easily 7.5/10 or better. The overall condition of this watch is beautiful throughout and it is truly well preserved for a vintage watch. Overall, the dial, hands, crown, crystal, bezel insert and case metal quality are truly impressive for an unpolished watch. It has been thoroughly cleaned, professionally and correctly serviced, pressure tested & waterproofed. Timed using a Witschi timing machine and reset to factory correct specifications. This watch runs reliably and accurately.
