    An incredible and rare “Ghost” 1680 red submariner

    Arisen from the depths of my watch bin, an incredible and rare ghost 1680 red dial submariner - catch a glimpse before it vanishes.

    No papers, no history, nothing - provenience unknown. Much like the name, it’s like a apparition appearing out of nowhere. But the work was real:

    - Fully reshaped case including lugs, chamfers, spring bar holes, and CG’s

    - Case repolished and rebrushed

    - Aged and repolished bezel

    - Ghosted Insert, backside maintained as black

    - Relumed Dial and hand set to match with thin, lightly pillowed lume plots

    - Hands aged in an organic blend of apple cider vinegar and fresh pacific seawater

    - Reassembled with freshly lubed gaskets, all parts compression fitted

          Not many out there - thus it's "incredible and rare"
