For decades, the Submariner featured a time-only dial. The watch was developed as a professional tool watch for diving, after all. So, it seems only reasonable that Rolex would omit the date mechanism. However, as popularity for the Submariner grew among collectors of all lifestyles - not just divers - so did the need for a jump date. Ref. 1680 made Submariner history when it hit the market in the late 1960s as the first reference within the collection to feature a date mechanism on the dial. Multiple editions were released in the 10+ years that the Submariner 1680 was in production, making it one of the most intriguing vintage Rolex watches to hunt for on the secondary market. Today, we have a handsome example for sale featuring a feet-first dial, Tritium lume, and a stunning bezel.
