The model 1675 will forever be connected to aviation thanks to its roots with the Pan-am Airlines in the late 1950’s. Designed with a dual-time zone feature to aid pilots during flight, this model has become a favorite for vintage collectors.
This specific timepiece has a newer matte black dial with tritium markers and matching hands. The dial and hands have aged together, beginning to show a slight and luscious eggshell tone. The now-famous, bi-color, red/blue (commonly referred to as the “Pepsi”) bezel insert is also newer but, again, also shows signs of age and slight fading.
The sturdy 40mm case, common to most of the watches in the Rolex Professional series, is in excellent condition with freshly re-cut bevels that are crisp and sharp. Also this watch sports pointed crown guards protecting the crown giving the case a distinctive look that is not offered on modern pieces.
The original bracelet is a beautiful 7206 rivet link, oyster bracelet in excellent shape that contributes to the fantastic, overall-vintage look of this beautiful watch. Please feel free to contact Larry with any questions you may have at [email protected]
*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!!
