1984 Rolex GMT Master Matte Ref. 16750 (Full Set)
Superb example of the transitional Rolex GMT Master 16750 from the mid 80s. This watch is so good. . The case is fat and crisp with nicely bevelled lugs. Reference and serial numbers are clean and fully intact, The matte dial is in excellent condition retaining the tritium on dial and hands, no tarnishing or crumbling. The original Tritium on dial and hands has aged to a yellowish hue. The correct blue back Pepsi bezel insert has aged nicely. The 16750 is gaining more and more popularity given its quick set date movement short production run. The matte dial version was only produced for around 4-5 years and looks almost identical to a 1675.

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.
