This honest and authentic Rolex Submariner 1680 dates from 1978.

With the introduction of the reference 1680 in the late 60s, for the first time the Submariner was fitted with a Cyclops date. Here you can see the all-white printed dial, which was produced for a short period of time between approx. 1976 and 1979.

The Rolex Submariner is a legendary diver's watch and this example is not only a rare vintage find, but also a wristwatch suitable for everyday use thanks to its reliable movement.
