Produced around 1969, reference 1680 was the first Submariner model to be made with a date function. The model was normally cased in stainless steel however, an 18k gold version is available. Early examples displayed a ‘meters first’ depth rating, with the ‘Submariner’ script printed in red, hence the name "Red Submariner".
The present example features a Mark 4 dial, displaying ‘feet first' as opposed to ‘meters first'. The 6 is 'open', and the depth rating is very thin. All these hallmarks are correct for the serial number. The tritium has aged to a beautiful creamy ivory color. The case has been well preserved and remains in excellent condition giving the watch a very appealing look.
