Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680

By Paul Altieri, 

The Rolex Submariner reference 1680 was the first submariner to feature a date wheel and cyclopes crystal and the first to be released in all gold. It was made approximatly between 1966 and 1979 and is known as an excellent collector's watch. The all gold model is especially collectable as there were significantly fewer manufactured compared to their steel counterparts. Initially, the watch dial featured the metric system with meters first (200m=660ft), however around the early 1970's, Rolex changed the dial to read feet first (660ft=200m) in order to accommodate the United States, which was becoming the manufacturer's largest market for the brand.

This particular watch, manufactured in 1970, is 18k gold and features a mint matte black dial with gold "nipple" hour markers. The tritium hour markers have a gorgeous patina. This 1680 features a sweeping second hand, date window, feet first dial, signed case, dial and movement, and comes with a "patent pending" oyster bracelet.
