By Paul Altieri,
Originally Launched into the market around 1967, The Rolex 1680 was the first Submariner model to be designed with a date function. Throughout its entire production the model was release with various dial and bezel features.
A 2.7 million serial, this 1970 Submariner is a beautiful piece. The case has the original factory bevels still clearly present – becoming increasingly harder to find! The red letter, mark IV dial is in good shape with hour markers that have aged to a nice light-yellow patina. The hands have begun to age a shade darker than the dial, which is common to see with natural aging. Long considered a work horse of the Rolex professional series, the 1680 model is as classic as it is dependable. Don’t let this one get away.

A little late on my review but I thought better late than never. I purchased this watch as an every day timepiece and couldn't be happier. I wear it everywhere and it still looks and functions great.
