His highness Sheikh Al Maktoum recognised as one of the founding fathers of the United Arab Emirates, acting as Prime Minister as of 1971 and ascending to the Ruler of Dubai after his father in 1990.
As previously discussed (see lot 208) the 1675 represents one of Rolex's longest production runs for any reference. It thus stands to reason that a vast quantity of watches carrying this reference exist, so then, to find a watch from this production that is set apart from the rest to such an extent is a very precious and coveted commodity indeed. It is known that Rolex would cater to requests for personalised pieces however it is impossible to know exactly how many pieces were commissioned by His Highness Sheikh Al-Maktoum. What is clear that they are incredibly rare and hugely desirable.
