A classic... I still have a soft spot for this watch.

I picked this up from the post office on my way to work this morning. Oh, Rolex is such a slippery slope

Right, this time am I guessing right by saying 1680?

Certainly! 3.3 mil serial, so approx 1971-72.

Beautiful watch, that is on my list of things to get. I want to get one from 72 if possible, since that was my birth year. Not easy to find ones that look that nice.

ET - If you love it, get it. It looks great on your wrist and I am sure its singing that sweet tune to your ears.

Who says I'm not wearing a depth gauge and compass too? Yeah, surely it's a bit retro-romantic, but let's start with this; And let's be honest - the Submariner doesn't see any real action (it's mostly for places where the wettest thing around is a dry Martini? as the ad in my study says....), and the Spirotechnique depth gauge is just sitting around my desk, reminding me that there are more raptures waiting... /M
