Description
This gold Rolex GMT Master 16758 dates from 1981 and has a very charming and super attractive look.

The history of the Rolex GMT Master began in 1959/60 when traveling across continents became possible for the first time. Rolex presented the reference 1675, that was able to display two different time zones at the same time. Rolex equipped the GMT-Master model with an additional 24-hour hand. The second time zone can be set using the rotating bezel with a 24-hour scale, so that two time zones can be read simultaneously. Until 1975 Rolex produced only stainless steel versions and from around 1975 the GMT Master was also made in 18 carat gold. In the 1980s, the five-digit transitional reference was introduced. With this step, the GMT Master was equipped with the helpful quickset date mechanism for the first time. It's a pretty rare reference as its production stopped in the late 80's.

This particular watch scores with its attractive and warm appearance. The combination of gold case and black bezel is rich in contrast. The black dial features gold-bordered hour markers filled with luminous material called Luminova. However, the dial is signed Swiss T<25. In 1997, Rolex switched from Tritium to Luminova. For watches that were brought in for service after 1997, Rolex used the old "Swiss-T<25" dials and filled them with Luminova. Also this watch features such a dial, which was probably replaced during a service after 1997.
