Production officially began in 1966 on the reference 1680 and was the first of the Rolex Submariner line to have a day-of-the-month calendar function. The 1680 was also Rolex's first Submariner to be manufactured in solid 18k gold. Usually seen in steel version, the 1680 housed in a solid yellow gold case gives its give the owner a satisfying weight on their wrist associated with stability and durability. The beautifully clean dial is accented with raised, round and rectangular-shaped yellow gold applied luminous hour markers and a beautiful creamy patina to both the dial and hands. Made in 1978, this timepiece houses the sturdy 1575 movement, just overhauled and timing well. The recently polished case is in excellent shape with crisp bevels to the case lugs completes the vintage look to a stunning timepiece.
