Pre-Owned Watch Condition Examination:

This GMT is in overall great, attractive condition. The case is in good condition with some wear and scratches. The bezel is in great condition with some wear and scratches; the colors have remained vibrant. The bezel insert is a later, service replacement. The dial is in great condition with some light wear and patina. The hour markers and hands have developed patina. The lume on the dial has aged to an attractive creamy color and some plots have developed small areas of darker patina. The lume in the hands have also aged to a creamy color, matching the dial lume nicely. The lume in the GMT hand shows some wear. The folded Oyster bracelet is in great condition with some wear and a bit of stretch between the links which isn't uncommon for this style bracelet. The crystal has some light wear. 

Description: Rolex GMT-Master 1675

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. It pairs the two-tone finish with a beautiful brown dial with brown and gold bezel. However, what really sets this watch apart from other vintage Rolexes on the market are the charming yellow gold nipple hour markers and overall “Root Beer” motif.

This example is coming directly from the original owner who got it back in 1974 in Hong Kong at Artland Watch Company. We are very thankful he had the foresight to keep the box, punched papers, and even the hangtag with the serial number on it. The papers even have the little "1675" caseback sticker stuck to it, something we have seen before. This watch comes on an Oyster bracelet which we see less than the jubilee which was more common; its amazing how this style bracelet really changes the look and feel of the watch. If you are in the market for "Root beer GMT" on Oyster bracelet, this is worth considering.

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.

perfect condition!

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!!
