The Rolex Submariner Date, reference 1680 was introduced in 1969 in both stainless steel and 18k gold cases. Initially the watch dial featured the metric system with meters first (200m=660ft), however in approximately 1971 Rolex changed the dial to read feet first (660ft=200m) in order to accommodate the United States, which was becoming the manufacturers largest market for the brand. Rolex continued using the meters first dials however mostly with the examples stainless steel. It is exceptionally rare to find an 18k gold 1680 examples with the meters first dial.
