Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 16750

$14,395

Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm GMT-Master, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 16750

When Rolex first introduced the GMT-Master reference 16750, they made the addition of a Quickset function which allows the adjustment of the date wheel with ease. This vintage reference, features a highly desired red and blue ‘Pepsi’ bezel that rotates bi-directionally. The bezel was developed by Rolex and the Pan American Company to aid professional pilots with GMT, which allows the traveler to more easily maintain a reference of time between time zones. The 40mm Oyster case in stainless steel is hermetically sealed, protecting the self winding 3075 caliber movement powering the watch, from high altitudes as well as depths of up to 100m, making this timepiece both a fantastic and sought after piece of watchmaking history, as well as an incredible tool watch for wherever your travels may take you.

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.
