By Paul Altieri,
In production for over 20 years, the iconic 1675 was one of the more popular and noticeable timepieces manufactured by Rolex in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The 1675 was first introduced with a stunning, glossy, gilt dial, and was later changed to a matte dial in the late 1960s. The bezel insert shows how well engineered this watch was as a pilots companion, as tracking a second time zone became very simple with its 24 hour markings and easy-to-read GMT hand. This is a great example of a 1675 with nice patina, striking lines, stunning color, and beautiful functionality.
This 1966 example of a 1675 GMT has been recently polished and has clean lug bevels that shine well but it’s the bezel insert that takes center stage here. It is a remarkable “Pepsi,” red and blue insert. The glossy gilt black dial is sharp and clear with patina to the hour markers and the hands match nicely. The GMT hand is the small-arrow variant further adding to the timepiece’s collectibility. The C&I expansion oyster bracelet is strong and is completely intact. There are no sprung links on this bracelet! Strong case, strong dial, beautiful bezel, what’s not to love? Snatch it up! If you have any questions please contact Larry at [email protected].

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!!
