By Paul Altieri,
The model 1680 was first released to the market in the late 1960's. It made history as the first Submariner manufactured with a date wheel. The COSC certified 1570 movement found in the Submariner 5512 was modified slightly for use in the 1680 in order to maneuver the date function, introducing the 1575 movement. . While the highly collectible "Red Submariner" is often the first to come to mind when the 1680 is mentioned, the white dial's beauty is not to be overlooked. The stunning "feet before meters" dial features beautiful creamy hour markers and hands which match. The silver date-wheel features open 6's and 9's. The 1680 has a depth rating of 660ft or 200m, which is consistent with the other Submariners of that time. This watch has a 5.2 million serial number which places it near the final years the model was produced. This is a fantastic opportunity to show off your personality while still enjoying the quality of a Rolex timepiece.

outstanding example of Red Submariner. Exactly what I have been looking for.
Item delivered promptly and as described.
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.
