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 1968 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 that has faded to the highly desirable light silver/blue and faded red, giving it a stunning and unique appearance. The Mk 1 matte black dial is sharp and clear with patina to the hour markers and the hands match nicely. The swiss rivet oyster bracelet is strong and is completely intact. Strong case, strong dial, beautiful bezel, what’s not to love?
*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.
Well represented watch in excellent condition. Super fast shipping. My second purchase from Bobs but not my last. Their watches seem to be in better condition than many of the others I’ve seen online.
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!!
