Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675

$16,895

Pre-Owned, Rolex 40mm GMT-Master, Black Dial, Jubilee Bracelet, Ref. 1675

Overall, this GMT-Master 1675 from circa 1978 is an attractive watch that appears newer than its age. The crystal showcases the beautiful original matte black dial that is free of scratches or stains. This era watch used tritium lume as indicated on the dial, and the lume appears even, intact and has lightly aged to an off white creamy patina. It glows under UV light and immediately fades, as expected for this vintage though Rolex did put on new hands during recent factory service. The silver brushed date wheel is also the correct vintage.

Powered by a self winding mechanical caliber 1575, this watch features a hacking feature. The Rolex ‘twinlock’ crown includes the Rolex coronet underlined, as expected for this vintage. The stainless steel case is in excellent condition. The bright sides are free of large nicks or scratches. The bezel has a bright, clean insert free of scratches, with edges that are sharp and clean. The caseback shows minimal wear.

Lastly, at great expense, Rolex also fitted a new Jubilee bracelet of the proper original style.   All together, the watch is quite attractive and presents in very good condition and comes complete with box and service card.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
