1970 Rolex „Red“ Submariner Ref 1680

It’s all about that little red line on this Rolex Submariner 1680.

The 1680 introduced the date complication to the range of the Submariner (it was previously a distinctive feature of the GMT-Master or the Datejust, among others). This reference was produced for a decade until 1979, when a sapphire crystal replaced the good old plexi. The red Submariner line was around for only the first half of the production, with this example qualifying as a MK4 dial, characterized by the feet first depth rating, and the open “6” numerals. The single red line is a very coveted feature of the 1680, as it brings a dash of dynamism to the otherwise serious black dials characteristic of the Sub.
