Rolex “Gilt” GMT-Master


SKU: 459cc34323d Categories: , , ,


Up for grabs is an exceptional example of a Rolex GMT-Master with a glossy gilt dial, circa 1964 (1.1m serial).  This example is the last gilt dial Rolex produced before transitioning to the matte dial in/around 1967.  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 beveled edges visible  The dial is beautiful – super glossy, with a mirror like finish, and minimal wear visible under a loupe.  The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a golden yellow color, with only some slight loss to the 6 o’clock marker.  The original and period-correct “Pepsi” bezel insert is in fantastic condition, with a very attractive and even fade. Further, the watch comes equipped on a Rolex rivet 7206/80 bracelet, dated to 1965, and is in excellent condition, with 12 full links and no stretch.
