PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

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

By Paul Altieri

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.
