The Rolex GMT is a legend of the aviation age. Rolex first introduced the GMT Master Reference 1675 in 1959. While not the first GMT Master, this vintage timepiece is one of the most popular versions because it greatly resembles the more modern variations. This particular model is considered one of the most striking Rolex watches thanks in large part to its easily recognizable blue and red bezel. This bezel has been fondly nicknamed the “Pepsi” bezel.
The watch’s larger case measures 40mm in diameter and, for the first time on a GMT Master, features crown-guards.
Between 1959 and 1964, this model utilized the caliber 1565. However, later models through 1980 featured caliber 1575. Do not let the relatively thin case fool you. Though smaller, it keeps the delicate movement safe from water up to 50m or 165ft.
Its long production run, from 1959 to 1980, makes this particular reference one of the easier vintage watches to find and add to your collection. Not only is it easier to get your hands on, but it is well worth the investment thanks to its striking look and durability.
*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!!
