1967 Rolex GMT Master Gilt Dial Ref. 1675 (Full Set)

$43,500 USD


What we have here is a absolute pristine example of a 1675 GMT Master with Gilt dial. The serial ranges into early 1967 making this one of the last gilt 1675s produced before transitioning to the matte dial in the same year. The overall condition of this watch is exceptional with a very strong case and matching well preserved original bracelet. The period bezel insert has faded strongly from its original colors and shows some wear from age. The highlight of this watch is the ultra mirror glossy dial. The surface is unblemished and does not show any tool marks, crazing, drag marks or matte areas, a quality you rarely see. Last not least this watch comes with the original set of papers including the punched COSC as well as the punched, stamped and dated warranty booklet and a later box. A stunning  Gilt GMT in a very attractive set.
