Vintage Rolex watches with glossy dials and “gilt” or gold printing from the 1950s and 1960s are highly prized by collectors. This was made in the last group of GMT-Master watches with glossy dials. The Rolex GMT-Master reference 1675 is notable for its blue and red "Pepsi" bezel and the history of the watch dating back to Pan-Am pilots who wanted to track time in two time zones.
*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.
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!!
