The vintage Rolex watch collections are lovely to look at and ideal to wear. With a production period that goes back to the early 1900s, you better believe there are plenty of vintage Rolex watches to collect. From classic timepieces with subtle features to conversation pieces that stand out, you can choose from a wide array of vintage Rolex styles. One vintage Rolex watch that sees an adoring fan base is the vintage Rolex Submariner.
The brand began production on this model back in 1953 and continues to be made to this day. Throughout the decades of production, this watch model has gone through many changes including its aesthetics and technical aspects. If you want to collect a vintage Rolex Submariner, one reference to consider collecting is the vintage Rolex Red Submariner reference 1680.
The reference 1680 was first introduced in 1967 and produced until approximately 1975. This reference was the first vintage Rolex Submariner to have a date window. Prior to that time, a date window wasn’t included as the brand advertised this watch as a dive watch and didn’t think a date window would be necessary for divers. But, in 1967 this sentiment changed, and a date window was added.
The vintage Rolex Red Submariner reference 1680 features a 40mm stainless steel case, black dial with luminous hour markers, and the word “Submariner” noted in red letters. There are button and baton indices on the watch which also has a sturdy and lovely stainless steel Oyster bracelet. The date window lets the wearer know exactly what day of the month it is. As for technical components, the reference 1680 has a manufacturer Caliber 1575 movement and water resistance level of 200m.
This vintage Rolex reference 1680 appears to be in excellent condition. The stainless steel bracelet and case look to be in good condition. The only visible blemishes appear to be some slight scratches on the crystal. Overall, a beautiful vintage Rolex timepiece!
