WHY THIS WATCH

A very controversial reference, the Rolex Submariner reference 1680 was the first submariner to feature a date function. The 1680 was introduced in the late 60's and effectively split the submariner line in half, giving us both the date and no-date submariners. While many collectors scorned the addition of a date function/cyclops, after all these years past, it seems people have embraced the move. The 1680 had a long-ish 13+ year run, from 1967-1980 (approximately), with a ton of dial and bezel variations. This particular reference 1680 was produced on the last few years of the 1680's run. 

 

On the wrist, this watch straddles the line between vintage and modern almost perfectly. The lume points are the perfect shade of creme, and I love the font on the date wheel. I sometimes wear this watch on a leather strap, and it looks absolutely stunning on a dark grey goat skin strap, or a whiskey brown dog ears calfskin. This is a fantastic submariner for someone who wants to get their feet wet with a vintage piece. 

 

THE LITTLE DETAILS

Watch is 6.1m serial number, making it a 1979 watch. Case is in overall excellent condition, and has received only a very light polish in the past. The dial and handset are showing gorgeous light creamy lume points. The factory black bezel displays very minor wear for a watch this age. Movement is running strong with no issues. The watch has enough links for a 7.0 inch wrist. Additional links available upon request. Comes with box only, no papers.
