Reference 1680 was produced from 1969 to 1980. When this watch was made the examples with 660ft/200m on the dial targeted mainly the U.K. and North American markets, whereas examples with 200m/660ft were aimed at the rest of the world.
The watch has undergone a service at Rolex, during which the bezel and the bracelet were replaced. It may not be considered an investment asset anymore, but it is nevertheless certainly an extremely attractive timepiece that is ideal for regular wear.
