The Rolex GMT-Master 1675 was in production from 1959 until 1980 and during its long manufacturing run it saw many improvements and enhancements. When it was first launched, it was the first GMT-Master to sport the crown guards, which were pointed at the time – sometimes referred to as "El Cornino" – and eventually replaced by the rounder, more ergonomic crown guards. It was also the first to bear the “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” label on its dial and the first to be offered on both the Rolex Oyster and Jubilee bracelets. Early versions of the 1675 were powered by the Caliber 1565, and then the Caliber 1575. The extra-hour hand was made with a smaller triangle tip up until the late 1960s followed by a larger triangle tip in future models. Further modifications included the shift from a gloss dial to a matt dial with white printing, the hacking feature introduced in 1971, and an all black version was unveiled in the 1970s alongside the "Pepsi" two-toned bezels.

The two toned steel and yellow gold GMT-Master II 116713 was released in 2006 and it is part of the current collection of the Rolex GMT-Master II. The new features to the watch included the black “Cerachrom” bezel made from fade and scratch proof ceramic with gold engraved numerals and graduations, the Triplock screw-down crown rather than the Twinlock system, a new Oyster bracelet with polished center links and a new movement, the Caliber 3185. On its black dial there are also larger lume plots for greater visibility, as well as a green 24-hour hand, and the Oyster case has been redesigned for a larger fit. The GMT-Master II 116713 also has the 'ROLEX' engraving around the inner bezel, a.k.a. the rehaut, as an anti-counterfeit measure and the Easylink mechanism on the bracelet to allow for an extension of up to 5mm.
The Rolex GMT-Master II 116718 was the first version of the completely redesigned GMT-Master II line launched in 2005 on the occasion of the collection’s 50th anniversary. Because it was an anniversary edition, it includes the signature green dial within its 18k yellow gold Oyster case. The new GMT-Master 116718 boasts many brand new features including a Cerachrom ceramic bezel that is highly resistant to scratching and fading, a “maxi” dial with larger lume plots for better legibility, a Triplock screw-down crown instead of the previous Twinlock mechanism, and the new Caliber 3185 movement. Two major enhancements to the design of the ref. 116718 were done to the case and bracelet. Although the Oyster case maintains its 40mm size, it is now squarer and bulkier than before, and therefore it wears larger than its predecessors. The improved Oyster bracelet has polished center links in addition to the Easylink extension system that allows wearers to increase the length to up to 5mm for optimal comfort. The GMT-Master II 116718 is also available with a black dial.
