When it comes to vintage Rolex GMT-Master watches, bezel color is everything. For some, the vibrant hues of the fuchsia bezel defect are too much. For others, it is perfection. This is a prime example of a fuchsia bezel that has been aged to perfection.
The dial on this watch a beautiful matte black finish, and the hands have aged a lovely cream color. Altogether, this watch is in amazing condition given its age. If you are into funky vintage watches with a ton of character, don't sleep on this watch.
*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!!
