HI all,

I have seen some pictures posted of red subs/1680 with a tropic without a date cyclops. Appears domed. Looks fantastic and adds a new dimension for the red sub IMHO.

Could anyone let me know which tropic would this be?

Thanks to all who respond.

Would love to see some pictures...

I think..... that a tropic 19 will fit a 1680.

Tropic 19 is the tropic crystal for a 5513. They come in domed and "regular".
I think they fit the date sub. Never tried it but pretty sure I have read
that.

Need a watchmaker or someone with experience to confirm.

If no one confirms yes or no, you could buy a cheap crystal reproduction
on ebay and see if it fits before trying to source an original.

Beautiful.


Which tropic would that be? Anything I should take note of to go that way?

Thanks for your advice.
