Hi there,

Appreciate anyone could provide some guidance on how to get a good RED?

Question:

- if the dial look too new to be old, how do i know if it is original?
- some hour marker are creamy while some is white, should i always look for yellow creamy marker?
- since movement, bracelet, bezel, crown and crystal are replaceable over time should i look for those worn out and look old to be valued high?
- what is the different in value between with and without paper?
- how can we tell if a dial is Redone?
- is the dial look vintage and dirty command more value than those look mint?
- any informations is much appreciated.

Thanks for sharing, God Bless !

You will need to post the watch with a dial close up...and papers..That is the only way I can tell you if it is correct or not..

Thanks Arthur, but generally what are the things we should look for?
How a vintage 1680 RED is valued? what are the criteria?
Appreciate if you can provide some general guides, thanks.

Wow.. Nice.... Sweet...
I suppose it is the dial that command the value most, how about the movement, case, and bracelet?n
Hoe can we know if a dial is relume or redone? Also, is the markwr yellowish command higher value?


has pricing between $7,000-10,000..depending on box and papers. Also the depth rating 200/660 or 660/200 is crucial as well on value. Stay away from chipped or relumed dials..

Some of the ones I own below..

It is all about condition..

and you need to compare any red 1680 Sub to a correct one before a purchase one..same goes for the caliber, case and case back. Some homework is required, but with the web you can narrow it down.

That is why I always ask a member to post a picture before I respond.
Yellowish or white markers, are fine as long as the lum is original. Redone markers and hands reduce the value as any redone lum job does on any vintage watch.
