By Paul Altieri,
Vintage watches are very hot right now so you can see them pretty much everywhere you look. Rarely, however, will you see a piece as good looking as this. Versatile in functionality and able to take extreme punishment, the Rolex GMT line has evolved in to one of the most sought after watches in the world.
This incredible piece was manufactured 1962 and comes with a gorgeous, black, glossy, gilt dial, with a beautiful chapter ring that is in great condition. This is the variant that collectors refer to as the exclamation point dial, since the luminous marker at the 6 o’clock position matches with the hour marker to form what appears to be a large exclamation point. This is very rare and highly collectible and that’s on top of just looking really cool. Next on the laundry list of awesome things about this watch is the GMT hand. This piece has the GMT hand that has the small arrowhead point at the end. Again, this is a highly desirable feature. Next is the bezel insert, though it is a service replacement, it has had time to fade and age to a point that it looks remarkable. Continuing on the list are the pointed crown guard that protect the crown, early models came to a point and again are a feature that collectors love. Lastly in terms of desirable features is the c&I, rivet bracelet. The vintage look of this bracelet completes this piece perfectly and makes this watch a must have. Don’t miss this watch!

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!!
