Introducing a stunning piece of horology: the world-renowned Rolex 1680, a vintage timepiece that connoisseurs and Rolex aficionados often fondly refer to as the "Holy Grail". This particular timepiece comes in remarkable condition, remaining all original, which only adds to its allure and high cherished value amongst Rolex collectors. Its exceptional condition is truly reflective of the timeless quality the Rolex brand is synonymous with. Making it’s debut in 1953, the Rolex 1680 initially stood out for its innovative mechanical upgrade, fitted with the highly reliable and precise Caliber 1570 movement. Accurate, dependable, and robust, this movement marked a significant evolution in Rolex’s craftsmanship and innovative prowess in the world of horology, making this model a cherished piece of Rolex's history.

The watch adorns a tough and sturdy 40mm stainless steel case – a perfect size that marries both presence and prominence, without shying away from comfort. With its robust case, this timeless piece is engineered to endure not just the passages of time but also the deep ocean depths. Designed specifically with the diver in mind, this watch was engineered to function flawlessly in challenging deep-water environments. It boasts an impressive water resistance of up to 660 feet (200 meters). Its reliable water-resistant property makes it as much a professional diving instrument as it is a piece of luxury jewelry. Last but not least, the Rolex 1680 seamlessly pairs with the robust and timelessly stylish bracelet model 93150. This stainless steel bracelet adds an extra layer of durability and comfort, while its subtle sheen perfectly complements the watch's overall appearance.
