Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680

By Paul Altieri

This is the one, my friends: the Rolex Submariner 1680. Introduced in the mid 60’s, this reference was the first Submariner to sport the iconic “cyclops” date magnifier, which along with other innovations, made the model 1680 one of the most well-known and most desired watches in the world.

The Submariner reference 1680 brought a revolution to the Submariner line, with the addition of a calendar date function underneath the cyclops magnifier. The one available for you here is from 1969. This timepiece comes with a newer matte dial that has aged beautifully. The dial is nice and clean, while the hour plots have aged to a gorgeous, creamy, tan color. The hands have aged one shade darker than the dial markers, and compliment the vintage look very nicely. The case has recently been polished and the bevels are clearly visible and are nice and sharp. The bezel insert is a newer replacement that is bright and bold and in fantastic shape. The 9315 bracelet has 12 fold over style links and is in excellent shape with only slight stretch. This is great example of an iconic watch and a great start to any fantastic Rolex collection. If you have any questions feel free to contact Larry at [email protected].
