Rolex GMT Master 16753 Tiger Eye

Rolex sticker on the back - unpolished case - special dial colors

This Rolex GMT 16750 Tiger-Eye is an extremely attractive vintage watch from 1986 with a two-tone case made of stainless steel and yellow gold.

In 1955, Rolex, in collaboration with Pan American World Airways, developed the first GMT-Master and sold it as the tool watch for professional pilots. The simultaneous display of two time zones was a groundbreaking and very helpful function, especially on intercontinental flights. In the course of its long history, the design of the GMT Master has been constantly and minimally changed and is currently still in production. Today not only pilots, but all those who like to travel can enjoy this extraordinary wristwatch. The vintage versions of the legendary GMT are highly valued by collectors and are among the most popular vintage watches ever.

The first two-tone version of the GMT was presented in 1970 and was the reference 1675/3. Here we offer you the successor reference 16753, which was equipped with improved caliber 3075 to feature a date quickset and hacking seconds mechanism. The Rolex GMT-Master 16753 is also called the "Tiger Eye" due to the similarity in color to the Tiger Eye gemstone.

The present watch has a breathtaking look, thanks to the warm gold colors. The dial offers a special flair thanks to the warm brown-gold surface, which takes on different shades of brown depending on the incidence of light. The original tritium luminescent material has a gold-colored patina that harmonizes perfectly with the dial. The rotating 24-hour bezel also contributes to the breathtaking appearance of this GMT Master.

This watch is worn but remained unpolished: a condition favored by discerning vintage collectors. A sharp case with a full profile and a flawless dial make this GMT a valuable collector's piece. Thanks to the few signs of wear on the case and bracelet, you don't have to worry about wearing the watch every day. The green Rolex hologram can still be seen on the case back, which also stands for a great and rarely worn condition.

The watch is powered by the automatic caliber 3075 with a quick date set and a stop-second (hacking seconds) function. The movement operates reliably and precisely. The two-tone Oyster bracelet in stainless steel and yellow gold is very well preserved and has little stretch. The bracelet reference is 78363, end links 480 and the clasp code is L3. All numbers match the year of manufacture of the watch.

This Rolex GMT Master is not a usual reference 16750. Its perfectly preserved tiger's eye dial with a special flair and the unpolished case with intact Rolex sticker on the back create a rare configuration that will make the future owner proud and happy.
