The Rolex Submariner was released by Rolex in 1954.

However it was not until 1969 that the Rolex Submariner featured a date with the release of the 1680. The Rolex Submariner 1680 was also the first Submariner to feature a magnification cyclops above the date window. The Rolex Submariner continued to evolve through the 1970's and in 1979 Rolex released the 5 digit version of the Submariner starting with the 16800. This transitional Submariner featured a number of upgrades on previous version including a sapphire crystal, the patented Trip-lock crown, a depth rating of 300m (1,000ft) and a ratcheted, unidirectional rotating bezel.
