Description
The first owners of a Rolex GMT Master were the pilots of the PAN-AM Airline. The long and exciting history of this legendary wristwatch inspires the watch lovers around the globe. The second time zone display on the distinctive Pepsi bezel has become absolutely cult. The Rolex GMT Master is more popular than ever.

And here we offer you a Rolex GMT Master 16700 from 1997, which replaced the reference 16750 in 1988 and was manufactured until 1999. It was the first GMT with a sapphire crystal. The reference 16700 was only available in a stainless steel case.

The black dial has hour markers with white gold borders and a beautiful tritium lume. The dial is absolutely mint. The rotating Pepsi bezel has rich colors and is perfectly preserved. The stainless steel case seems to be unpolished. All lugs and edges are very sharp. At the heart of this watch is the Rolex Caliber 3175 perpetual movement, which runs perfectly and has a quickset for the date display.

The full set increases the collector's value of that watch even more. The original chronometer certificate from the year of manufacture is punched with the serial number and the country code 100 (German concessionaire). The first seller of this watch was the goldsmith Jaufmann from Augsburg, Germany, whose stamp and signature can be seen on the certificate. The original Rolex presentation box with the serial number 680055 and a Rolex hangtag accompany the watch. The original Oyster bracelet has the reference 78790 and the end links 501B. The code in the clasp is Z9.

If you are looking for a perfectly preserved Rolex GMT Master with a high collector's value, this watch is just right for you.
