WHY THIS WATCH
The Rolex 1675 was conceived when the American airline, Pan American Airlines approached Rolex and asked them to develop a watch for their pilots. This partnership led to the development of the the first GMT-Master the reference 6542. The dual time zone was a useful tool for pilots and those traveling across different timezones. The ability to track local and home time was especially useful for commercial pilots.
The 1675 is the 2nd Generation GMT replacing the reference 6542. The 1675 introduced two key changes to the GMT model. First, the fragile Bakelite Bezel of the 6542 was replaced with an Aluminum insert. Second, Crown Guards were added to the case. These 2 changes made the 1675 the first GMT that could really be worn daily.
Today's Rolex GMT-Master is one of the most popular models from the brand. With the GMT-Master II 126710BLRO on jubilee bracelet seeing a waiting list many years long, older models such as the 1675 have become very popular.
On the wrist, this watch just exudes vintage charm. The fade on the bezel, and the gorgeous creme lume points really make this watch look very special. I never get tired of staring at this watch. At 40mm this watch can be worn comfortably by almost anyone, and will slip right under the cuff. This watch has a bullet-proof build quality that doesn't make me shy wearing it every day or on long travel trips.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
Watch is 2.1m serial number, making it 1969. Case is in overall excellent condition with a lot of meat left on the lugs, see side profile pics. The matte dial and handset are showing light creamy lume points. The factory pepsi bezel displays a beautiful contrast, with fade on the blue side and less so on the red side, a testament to the different blends of paints used at the time. Rolex contracted out it's bracelet making to the USA in the sixties, so this watch comes on an Authentic Vintage Rolex U.S.A jubilee bracelet with 580 end links. Movement is running strong without issues.
