PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

TWEAK TO WATCH - This GMT is in overall great vintage condition consistent with age. The case has been polished and the bezel shows some wear with scratches. The dial is overall nice with some patina and spotting throughout. The hour markers and hands have developed patina. The lume in the hands and on the dial has aged to a similar color and some of the lume has aged to a greenish color. The Rolex USA bracelet is in good condition with some wear and stretch between the links which is very common for Jubilee bracelets of this age. 

Rolex GMT-Master 1675 Root Beer

By Paul Altieri 

Rolex produced the GMT Master 1675 for over two decades between 1959 and 1980. During that time, numerous editions of the beloved 4-digit Rolex pilot's watch hit the market, including the Rolex Root Beer GMT for sale here. It earns its intriguing nickname after the brown tones present on the bezel and dial, which closely resemble the popular soda. Distinguishing features include unique yellow gold nipple hour markers, a brown dial, an aluminum bezel in a matching brown hue, and a two-tone finish. This vintage Rolex also includes the brand's iconic 5-piece link Jubilee bracelet, Tritium luminescent plots, and a self-winding movement. It is the ultimate grail watch and will quickly become the envy of your circle of friends.

BF write up below 

The reference 1675 is the second iteration of the original GMT Master and was offered in many variations. A handful of metal options were produced under ref. 1675, including the steel and gold like the example we have here. It pairs the two-tone finish with a beautiful brown dial with brown and gold bezel. However, what really sets this watch apart from other vintage Rolexes on the market are the charming yellow gold nipple hour markers and overall “Root Beer” motif. Collectors have nicknamed these GMT’s with brown dials as “Root beer” GMT’s because of the color similarities. These “Root Beer” GMT’s offer that quintessential vintage vibe especially when on the jubilee bracelet.
