Up for grabs is an exceptional example of a Rolex GMT-Master with a glossy gilt dial, circa 1964 (1.4m serial), one of the nicest we have sold in recent memory. This example is the last gilt dial Rolex produced before transitioning to the matte dial in/around 1967. The gilt dials are adorned for their gold inlay, and glossy/mirror-like lacquer finish.
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 true factory mirror-like finish, and no wear. The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a golden yellow color, with only minor loss in the hour hand and in the 5 o’clock plot. The original and period-correct “Pepsi” bezel insert is in fantastic condition, and has minimal wear, aged to a light faded blue and orange color.
The watch comes equipped on a Rolex folded-link 7846/380 bracelet, with 12 full links, and light stretch, dated to 1970.
