Reference 1680 was the first Submariner to be produced in gold, for clients seeking a touch of luxury with professional capabilities. The present example is a great specimen in yellow gold, absolutely rare with its originally dial and unidirectional blue bezel for checking decompression time spans. In superb overall condition, this 1680 has a sharp-edged case with nice proportions. The dial has a subtle and intriguing purple color with nipple indexes. The present watch is among the most significant yellow-gold Submariners to have been offered at auction in the recent years.
