The 1680 made its debut in 1966 and enjoyed a production run until 1979. It was the first Submariner reference to include a date function and it was topped off with an acrylic crystal equipped with the now iconic Rolex Cyclops lens for date window magnification. The writing on the dial of the Submariner 1680 underwent a few modifications during its rolex replica lifetime, including changing the original red color of the "Submariner" label to white, font revisions and reversing the placements of the feet vs. meter waterproofness depth gauge. This specific Submariner 1680 features all-white writing with the 660ft placed swiss replica watches before the 200m, and of course the Tiffany & Co. logo. Driving the Submariner 1680 was the Caliber 1575, first introduced in 1965, which, as the markings on the dial can tell you, was a C.O.S.C certified "Superlative Chronometer Official Certified". And this being a diving watch, Rolex took special care in ensuring its waterproofness. The early generations of the 1680 were outfitted with the cartier replica watches Rolex Twinlock winding crowns, eventually progressing to the Triplock ones in the later models, as is the case with this 1680 model. Rolex's 1680 also signaled a transition for the Submariner family from a replica rolex predominately utilitarian "tool watch" to a more luxury sports watch marketed towards the general public with some models being offered in gold and a mix of gold and stainless steel.

Chests

 

We have one of the largest collections of antique chests in the Arabian Gulf. The chests originate from the Middle East, India and East Africa and would have originally been used as sea chests, pearl chests or for storing personal valuables & belongings. The chests come in a variety of woods and designs. The woods used are predominantly Teak and Rosewood. The designs vary greatly from plain and simple to highly ornate brass & copper decoration. Several chests date back to the mid 18th century. A few stunning examples are shown below. Please click on the thumbnail for a larger view.
