Up for grabs is a lovely example of the popular “Root Beer” Rolex GMT-Master, reference 1675, in two-tone steel and yellow gold, circa 1971. This example features the so-called “nipple” dial, due to the smaller hour markers, and the earlier version with a matte brown/maroon dial (as opposed to the later sunburst dial).
The Rolex GMT-Master offered here is in great vintage condition. The case has been polished in the past, but retains thick and even lugs. The dial is gorgeous, with no chips, scratches or marks. The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a lovely pale creamy color. The watch comes fitted on a Rolex Swiss 62510H Jubilee bracelet, with 555/50 endlinks, and has light stretch. The bracelet will fit an approximate 7″ wrist.
