The Rolex Submariner 1680, introduced in the late 1960s, stands as a quintessential example of Rolex's dedication to combining robust functionality with timeless design. This model, designed primarily for divers, features a waterproof stainless steel case that is hermetically sealed to ensure a depth resistance of up to 200 meters (660 feet). The 1680 model is especially notable for introducing the date function to the Submariner line, displayed through a distinctive cyclops lens on the crystal, enhancing the legibility of the date. The watch measures 40mm in diameter, a size that balances presence on the wrist with comfort. The movement inside the Submariner 1680 is the Rolex Caliber 1575, an automatic mechanical movement renowned for its reliability and precision. This movement not only provides the usual hour, minute, and seconds functions but also adds a quick-set date feature, a significant advancement at the time of its release. The watch's dial is typically black, which contrasts beautifully with the luminescent hour markers and hands, providing excellent readability under low-light conditions—essential for divers. The unidirectional rotating bezel, marked to 60 minutes, allows divers to accurately monitor diving time and decompression stops. Externally, the Submariner 1680 is fitted with a durable, corrosion-resistant Oyster bracelet, equipped with a secure clasp and a diver’s extension to fit over a wetsuit. The aesthetic of the watch is completed with a polished and brushed finish that not only enhances its visual appeal but also stands up well to the wear and tear typical of both underwater and everyday environments. This model's enduring design and mechanical integrity make it a revered piece in the watch-collecting world, symbolizing both innovation and tradition in Rolex's storied history.
