By Paul Altieri,
The Rolex GMT Master’s captivating history began with Pan American Airways collaborating with Rolex to produce a watch that would allow their pilots to simultaneously keep track of time in two time zones. The reference 1675 introduced crown guards and a bezel with a metallic insert.
This 1675 example from 1978 stands out with its stunning and original black MK2 dial with creamy patina. The tritium hour markers have aged to an appealing shade of beige, almost resembling a light coffee color, and perfectly match the original luminous hands. The bezel has aged gracefully, having uniformly faded to a light red and blue.
The present lot comes complete with its original box, booklets with Rolex guarantee, making this especially appealing to vintage Rolex enthusiasts. Combining great daily wearability and rarity, this superb example offers tremendous value for collectors.

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!!
