The Submariner stands as one of the most iconic, if not the most iconic, timepieces ever produced by Rolex, cementing its status as one of the most coveted models in the history of horology. Its inaugural production began in 1953, and the model was officially launched at the Basel World Fair in 1954, marked by references 6204 or 6205. Subsequent years witnessed the introduction of other noteworthy models such as the 6538 Big Crown or Coroncione, along with the 5513 and 5512. In a pivotal move, Rolex ceased the use of gilt/silver-gilt dials on Submariner watches in 1965–1966, transitioning to white printing. However, a more significant shift occurred in the late 1960s with the introduction of the 1680 model, marking a momentous milestone in the Submariner’s evolution. The 1680 was the first Submariner to feature a date function, symbolizing the transformation from a specialized tool watch to a mass-market fashion accessory. This particular lot represents a distinguished member of the reference 1680 series with all-white writing on the dial. The black matte dial showcases a closed six on the depth rating and a precisely centered “L’ in the name ROLEX in relation to the base of the crown symbol. The watch exudes elegance with its well-preserved Oyster bracelet, sharp edges, and an untouched graduated bezel. A true beauty, this 1680 model encapsulates the Submariner’s timeless appeal for collectors and enthusiasts.
