Up for grabs is a lovely example of a Rolex GMT-Master with a glossy gilt dial, circa 1965 (1.3m serial). This example is the last gilt dial Rolex produced before transitioning to the matte dial in/around 1967. In addition, this watch comes complete with its original Rolex box, “punched” Warranty Certificate, and Rolex GMT-Master card.
This Rolex GMT-Master is in very nice vintage condition. The case has been polished in the past, but shows thick and even lugs, with some original definition left in the bevels of the lugs. The dial is beautiful – still glossy, with minimal wear visible under a loupe. The original tritium lume is present on the dial, aged to a golden yellow color; the hands have been professionally color-matched to the dial. The original and period-correct “Pepsi” bezel insert is in nice condition, with a very attractive and even fade. Further, the watch comes equipped on a Rolex Swiss Jubilee 6251H bracelet, with light stretch, and will fit an approximate 7-7.25″ wrist.
