Up for grabs is a stunning example of the popular “Fat Lady” Rolex GMT-Master II, Ref. 16760, circa 1985. These watches were upgraded by Rolex from the Cal. 3035, with a new, thicker movement, the Cal. 3085, giving the case a slightly thicker profile, hence the nickname the “Fat Lady”. This reference was also the first GMT-Master II reference for Rolex, and the first GMT reference to use a sapphire crystal, and also the first GMT to allow the wearer to set the hour hand independent of the GMT hand.
This GMT-Master II is in excellent condition. The case is unpolished and sharp, with original beveled edges. The dial is flawless, with no wear, chips, scratches, etc. The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, aged to a golden yellow. The watch also has its original “coke” bezel, slightly faded in the red area.
The watch comes equipped on its original Rolex 78360 oyster bracelet, with 501B endlinks. The bracelet has 12 full links and light stretch.
