The Rolex Submariner ref. 1680, introduced in 1966, marked a significant evolution in the iconic Submariner lineage by incorporating a Cyclops date function. Initially launched in stainless steel with the coveted red “Submariner” dial, Rolex later unveiled a luxurious version in 18K yellow gold, ushering in a new era of elegance and functionality. This yellow-gold variant not only retained the professional capabilities of the Submariner but also added a touch of opulence to the esteemed diver’s timepiece. Offered with two dial options, the present example stands out with its well-preserved matte black nipple dial and matching black bezel insert, creating a timeless and sophisticated aesthetic. The overall condition of this watch is exceptional, evidenced by the presence of the original sticker on the back, a rarity that enhances its desirability among collectors. What elevates this Submariner 1680 to an even more exclusive status is the prestigious Tiffany & Co. signature on the dial, something extremely rare to find on a black dial. The collaboration between Rolex and Tiffany & Co. dates back to the 1950s, spanning about four decades. During this period, watches with the Tiffany & Co. signature became highly sought after, embodying a unique blend of craftsmanship and luxury. The inclusion of the Tiffany & Co. signature not only adds an extra layer of exclusivity but also serves as a testament to the historical significance of this timepiece. As a symbol of excellence, the Tiffany boutique has been a destination for discerning collectors seeking the finest and most attractive wristwatches. Today, this exceptional Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 with the coveted Tiffany & Co. signature awaits a fortunate connoisseur, offering a rare opportunity to enrich their collection with a true horological gem.
