Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680 18k Gold

By Paul Altieri

In 1966, manufacturing officially began on the reference 1680 model Submariner. The first Submariner to have a calendar function, the 1680 was also the first Submariner to be manufactured with a solid 18k gold case and bracelet. The gold stunning yellow gold gives its owner a nice weight on their wrist associated with durability and longevity. The crown on the 18k bracelet has been heavily polished and the bracelet shows some stretch. The beautiful, crisp, blue dial has the raised, round and rectangular-shaped hour markers commonly referred to as the “nipple dial”. The hour markers have aged evenly while the hands have a slight unevenness to them giving them some unique personality. Manufactured in 1972, this timepiece houses the sturdy 1575 movement, was just overhauled and is timing well. The recently polished case is in excellent shape and the bezel insert, though previously replaced, shows minor signs of age.

Good Every Day Watch

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.
