Icon7 Very cool

Any chance you can post scan of the 1655 'as illustrated'?

Curious what version (dial, hands, etc) is shown in '75

This is great.....
It's interesting to see in terms of British pounds most models have doubled in price roughly every 7.5 to 8 yrs.

Equally is the price similarity of models like Sub date, Sd and Daytona compared to todays disparity between the Daytona and the others..

$394.83 for a SS Submariner.

Here's $400 and keep the change.....based off the average for the year of 2.5834, if I am not mistaken.

Not bad considering my 1st Rolex was a brand-new SS-Sub 1680 in July/78 at $600.+tax, from a USA-AD.

Imagine an AD display case.

I'll take the 1019, 1655, 6263, 6265 and the red 1680 and double red 1665.

1090 less my 15% discount for these slow sellers - 927.

Better idea .... off to USA to be the tea boy at Bill Gates new small Company.

Wow, the gap must have really started closing fast in the 70s. My recollection is the rate was about 4 SFR to 1 USD in the late 60s. More recently it was about 1 to 1.

Possibly it was a mistake.

I believe they were in production from 1959 through 1978,
