Rolex GMT Master 1675 Gilt

perfect gilt glossy dial - original faded bezel

In the 1950s, Rolex introduced the very first GMT Master. The pilots of the intercontinental flights loved the new wristwatch, which made it possible to read two time zones simultaneously. To this day, the GMT Master has remained the most legendary travel watch and is extremely popular not only among pilots.

Here you see an early reference 1675 with a glossy gilt dial. This vintage watch dates from 1966 and is preserved in great condition despite its old age. The glossy dials always had gilt lettering, hence the nickname "gilt dial" or "gilt GMT". The later versions of reference 1675 had matte dials with white lettering. The gilt dial with its creamy tritium lume in the markers and hands creates a very warm look for this GMT Master. The black glossy surface of the dial is preserved with no spots or cracks with this particular vintage GMT.

The stainless steel case has an honest condition with natural signs of wear and is free of fat scratches. The rotatable pepsi bezel is original from 1966 and has beautiful faded colors, giving the watch a very harmonious look. At 4 o'clock the bezel has some scratches that are just visible if you look closely at this spot. This GMT Master is accompanied by a Jubilee bracelet with the reference number 62523H and end links 55. Similar to the watch, the bracelet is greatly preserved and shows only a few natural signs of wear. The fine Jubilee bracelet sits very comfortably on the wrist and is comfortable to wear.

The heart of this Rolex GMT Master is the automatic caliber 1575 with a GMT module, also known as 1575 GMT. Rolex often marked the movement bridges with the base caliber 1570, as with this GMT. This is not uncommon, because 1570 and 1575 are identical except for a few details. Due to its reliability and robustness, the caliber 1570/1575 belongs to the crème de la crème of automatic movements.

This Rolex GMT Master 1675 is a rare cult watch with a breathtaking patina and a beautiful vintage look. Thanks to its reliability, the GMT Master is perfect for everyday wear. But above all, it is a valuable vintage watch that shouldn't be missing in any Rolex collection.
