Excellent Red Sub post

I read this earlier this month on another forum. It is 1 of the best posts on the Red Submariner I have read so far. Thanks to Mark the OP who put this together and sharing the knowledge.

Agreed regarding Mark Lerman. Coincidentally, I bought a red 1680 from him.

I enjoy these post the best. They help when digging through watch parts, or hunting for goodies at a watch show.

There is a big learning curve for the new enthusiast, and read these information packed links as if they were my homework.

He was nice to take his time, and share his knowlege!

Great read!

Great info and fairly comprehensive. Would have been nice if he added the dial makers and bezel font "fatness" vs. years of manufacture though...
