By Paul Altieri,
A fantastic piece of history, the Rolex GMT-Master 1675 was originally designed for the pilots of PanAm Airlines. When the 24 hour rotatable bezel and GMT hand are used together, they can be used to tell the time in two different time zones simultaneously. The 1675 was manufactured between 1959 and 1980, which makes it one of the longest production runs in Rolex history.
This incredible vintage watch features a genuine "Pepsi" bezel. The original matte black MK 1 dial has creamy hour markers and the hands match perfectly. While the case does have some minor scratches (as seen in the photographs), the beveled edges are beautiful and sharp! This watch is running to COSC standards and is guaranteed 100% genuine Rolex. The timepiece is completed with a time period correct C+I rivet bracelet. For many years, the GMT has been a must-have for any Rolex enthusiast or collector. This is a wonderful opportunity to obtain such an iconic watch at an affordable price!
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
The whole transaction process with Bob's is always top notch. The vintage watch was functioning as expected, the case is relatively strong with minimal polishing, and the dial is a beautiful service dial as expected.
I really like this beautiful 1675 with fuchsia bezel.
Quick e-mail responses, systematic
I have worn this watch everyday for 47 years, had it cleaned every 8 or so years, had the bezel replaced with the new one back in the 80s. Paid $400 in Switzerland in 1970. This is the greatest lifetime deal ever!!
