Excellent example of the transitional Rolex GMT Master 16750 from the mid 80s. The overall watch is in excellent condition, from all different aspects. The case is sharp with nice proportions and well defined lugs. The original matching solid Oyster bracelet doesn't show much wear from age and is in the same condition like the case. The glossy black dial with white gold surrounds is in excellent condition. The original Tritium on dial and hands has aged to a very warm brownish hue. The correct blue back Pepsi bezel insert has aged nicely to a baby blue and dark red. The 16750 is gaining more an more popularity given its quick set date movement and glossy dial. Looking at the production run, it was only produced for around 9 years in two dial variants. its the last plexi Pepsi in the before the Sapphire crystal models were introduced in the late 80s.

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.
