The Rolex 16750 GMT Master came to market in 1981 and continued production until the late 1980s when it was replaced by the very last reference in the original GMT Master line, ref. 16700. There are two variations of the ref. 16750 available on the secondary market, the slightly rarer matte dial topped with painted luminous hour markers that you see here today and the glossy dial variation with white gold hour markers filled with lume. The matte dial ref. 16750 offers a more desirable vintage aesthetic and is widely sought-after by preowned Rolex collectors in-the-know. The example that you see here today features a nicely aged dial and bezel and is powered by a calibre 3075 Perpetual movement.

This was my first time working with Bob's and the process could not have been better from my perspective. The watch was a gift for my son who enjoys watches...this will be his 6th Rolex. I didn't participate in the conversations but he had several several questions which the staff fully answered. I entered when it was time to settle up. The customer service was great and the watch arrived very quickly. I'm not the the watch enthusiast in the family, but I see no reason why we wouldn't be looking for # 7 with Bob's as well.
