The production of the 1680 Submariner Red began in 1969, 16 years after the launch of the first submariner, reference 6204. The 1680 was the first Submariner to have the date on the dial with a magnifying glass on the plexi glass. The caliber 1570 got replaced by the caliber 1575. It was only after 1973 that the red writing is suppressed and got replaced by a white writing similar to the other lines. Therefore the 1680 Submariner Red model is highly sought-after.
