The Rolex Submariner 1680 is an important model in the history of the Submariner line because it is the first Submariner to feature a date display and magnifying Cyclops lens. There are also rare early versions of the Rolex Submariner 1680 that display the word “Submariner” on the dial in red. Later versions display the name in white. Red writing on a Rolex Submariner 1680 makes the watch highly valued and sought after by collectors. Along with the introduction of the date window, ref 1680 utilizes a caliber 1575, 26-jewels movement. If you are a more conservative collector, the Rolex Submariner 1680 is more affordable yet still considered a prized acquisition on the collectors’ market.
