When reference 1680 was introduced into the Rolex catalog, the biggest change to the Submariner up to that point was the addition of a date function. Rolex still offers the Submariner with or without a date, and the ref. 1680 was the first available with the complication. This reference was made in the late 1970s with very little variation beyond a change in the color of the "Submariner" font on the dial. Until the serial number of 4.0 million, or around the mid-1970s, the model name was in red, and then Rolex changed the dial to completely white text, like the watch we have today.

The ref. 1680 fits almost perfectly, at least in the minds of vintage collectors, at the intersection of old-world charm and Rolex reliability. This is the truly vintage Submariner that you can wear almost every day and almost anywhere. When we find such an attractive example as this, we can't wait for it to appear on the list and on a new wrist. This is the fast ball for the Rolex Submariner, matte dial, beautiful luminous patina, and a beautiful aged bezel. It's really all you could need. This Sub has been equipped with a new TrueDome crystal that sits well and flush against the bezel insert and emits an overall vintage feel: a cherry on top for a well-patinated example like this. These non-cyclops crystals in Date Subs give them a fantastic and unexpected look.
