I recently got a 1680 Rolex Submariner that has a serial number that puts it as being produced in 1973. I have been on the lookout for this beauty for a long time. These are the reasons why I love my new Rolex Submariner.
Why I Love My 1680 Rolex Submariner
- The first model to feature the date window at the 3 o’clock position
- The new sapphire crystal, quickset date, and the screw link oyster fliplock bracelet
- The markers are often called “nipple” style
- The depth ratings were meters first on earlier dials then feet first a few years later
- Box folding links on the bracelet
