A very attractive example of the Rolex GMT Master Ref.1675 retained in excellent overall condition. What makes this watch very appealing is the excellent and flawless MK4 dial with original Tritium lume which has aged to a spectacular orange/pumpkin patina. The period-correct red-back “Pepsi” insert is very attractive, with a nice “faded” blue jeans appearance.The Jubilee bracelet completes the look and makes this a very sexy GMT to wear.

The GMT Master was launched in 1954 and designed in collaboration with Pan American Airways, with an extra 24h hour hand and bi-color bezel that allowed pilots to track two time zones across day and night. The GMT Master is characterised by an automatic movement and the iconic dual-colour bezel that represents each of the 24 hours in a day.
