Rolex model 1680 made history as the first Submariner released with a date wheel. The 1570 COSC certified movement found in the Submariner ref. 5512 was altered slightly for use in the 1680. This was necessary in order to operate the new date function. Hence the 1575 movement was born. When thinking about ref. 1680, the "Red Submariner" is often first thought of due to it high collectors value, but the white dial should not be overlooked. This stunning stunning "feet before meters" example features beautiful creamy hour markers. 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 5.4 million serial number which places it near the final year the model was produced.
