Up for grabs is a Rolex GMT-Master, Ref. 16750, circa 1985. The reference 16750 was a transitional reference for Rolex, from the 1675, which introduced their new Caliber 3075 movement, and changed the date function to a quick-set. Further, this example has an MK1 (first execution) “gloss” dial, which was Rolex’s departure from their traditional “matte” dial. On the very first gloss dials, Rolex opted to print “Oyster Perpetual” under Rolex, later changing it to “Oyster Perpetual Date”, and hence these early gloss dials are referred to as “No-Date” dials.
This Rolex GMT-Master is in excellent vintage condition. The case appears unpolished, still sharp, with original beveled edges visible. The dial is in great condition, withan even “spidering” set in across the dial, giving it a very unique look. The original tritium lume, present on both the dial and hands, aged to a pale yellow color. Finally, the watch retains its original “Pepsi” bezel insert is in good condition, with light wear.
The watch comes equipped on an original Rolex Oyster Jubilee 62510H bracelet, with 550/50 endlinks/endpieces, and has minor stretch, overall very well-preserved for a Jubilee bracelet, fitting an approximate 7″ wrist.
