The Rolex 1680 history dates back to the late 1960s. At the time of its release, the iconic vintage Rolex was the first Submariner to include a date mechanism on the dial. This feature would go on to become a fixture of the Submariner collection. Reference 1680 is a cult favorite among collectors in the know and an excellent gateway into vintage Rolex collecting. Simply put, if you're in the market for the best investment while shopping for a Rolex with provenance, iconic style, and value, this is the watch to buy. The example you see here includes a matte black dial decorated with Tritium hour markers and Mercedes hands, a black service bezel, and a 3-link Oyster bracelet.
