Vintage Watch Condition Examination

This Rolex watch is in good, honest vintage condition. The case has scratches and wear, it appears to have been polished. The bezel insert is a later service replacement. The colors are still vibrant and it is in overall great condition with some light wear and scratches. The dial is in overall good condition with patina and some wear. The dial has tiny specks of wear that when looking closely have a reddish hue. The edge of the dial around 5 o'clock shows some wear and also appears to be a reddish color. The dial also has some wear around the edge of the date window. It is not uncommon for this style of dial to wear and appear reddish in areas, we have seen this before. Some collectors call it a "lava" patina. The lume on the dial has developed patina and the hour markers have developed patina. The bracelet is in good condition with wear and stretch between the links which is pretty common for these older Jubilee style bracelets. 

Rolex GMT-Master 1675 Root Beer

By Paul Altieri 

The reference 1675 is the second iteration of the original GMT Master and was offered in many variations. A handful of metal options were produced under ref. 1675, including the steel and gold like the example we have here. Rolex offered these with either a black dial and matching bezel or like this example with a brown dial and matching bezel. These brown dial versions have earned the nickname "Root Beer" because of the colors. 

This circa 1979 example has a great overall vintage look with its nicely aged brown "nipple" dial. The dial has aged in an interesting way where it looks like some red is peeking through in certain spots adding to the charm. The combination of the brown dial with the bi-colored brown and yellow bezel adds to the overall striking appearance of this GMT.

Second purchase from Bobs

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.

Vintage 1971 Rolex GMT-Master 1675 'Pepsi' Insert

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 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!!
