Up for grabs is an exceptional example of a Rolex GMT-Master with a glossy gilt dial, circa 1964 (1.1m serial), one of the finest we have ever offered for sale, and true collector’s grade. This example is the last gilt dial Rolex produced before transitioning to the matte dial in/around 1967.
The present Rolex GMT-Master is in amazing condition. The case is unpolished, with original factory bevels visible and prevalent. The dial is incredible – super glossy, with a mirror like finish, and virtually no wear. The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a golden yellow color. The original and period-correct “Pepsi” bezel insert is in fantastic condition, and has no wear (according to the original owner’s daughter, her father changed the bezel to an all-black bezel shortly after purchasing the watch, as his wife did not like the red/blue colors, and it was never used on the watch). Further, the watch comes equipped on a Rolex-USA jubilee bracelet with light stretch.
This is an incredible collector and connoisseur’s watch, and you will be hard pressed to find one in better condition for sale!
