The reference 1675 is truly an iconic timepiece; it was a best-seller for Rolex for more than 20 consecutive years and continues to be today with its updated descendants. The GMT-Master is much more than just a convenient tool to track time zones – it also looks killer on the wrist, with its distinctive “root beer” brown bezel insert that sets it apart from its stainless steel cousin.
On this specific watch, the recently polished case is nice and strong, and the original thick lugs have not been deformed by excessive polishing. The matte brown dial and Nipple markers are in beautiful shape and give this timepiece a striking appearance. The root beer bezel insert has slightly faded giving it a spectacular appearance while the newer, 78363, steel and gold Oyster bracelet is in impeccable shape and has no stretch to it. Overall, this is a lovely 1675 that has aged gracefully If you have any questions please contact Larry at [email protected]

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!!
