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

In 1955, Rolex developed the very first GMT-Master in co-operation with Pan American World Airways and marketed it as the tool watch for professional pilots. The simultaneous display of two time zones was a pioneering and very helpful function, especially for intercontinental flights. In its long history, the GMT Master has undergone a series of design updates and is still in production. Today, it is not only pilots who enjoy this extraordinary wristwatch, but all travelers watch enthusiasts. The vintage versions of the legendary GMT are highly prized by collectors and are among the most popular vintage watches of all.

The first two-tone version of the GMT was the reference 1675/3 introduced in 1970. Here we offer you the successor reference 16753, which is powered by the improved caliber 3075 featuring a quickset date and hacking seconds. The Rolex GMT-Master 16753 is also known as the "Tiger Eye" because of its similarity in color to the precious stone tiger's eye.

This watch has a breathtaking look, which is created by the warm gold colors. The dial has a special flair thanks to the warm brown-gold surface, which takes on different shades depending on the viewing angle. The original tritium lume has a gold-colored patina that harmonizes perfectly with the dial. The rotating 24-hour bezel also contributes to the magnificent look of this GMT Master.

This watch is worn but unpolished: A condition favored by most vintage collectors. A sharp case with a full profile and a flawless dial make this GMT a valuable collector's watch. Thanks to the few signs of wear on the case and bracelet, there is no need to worry about wearing the watch every day. The green Rolex hologram can still be seen on the case back, which additionally speaks in favor of its rarely worn condition.
