Catalogue Note

This 1675 was the first bi-metallic GMT Master to be produced, all previous executions available only in steel. Due to its copper and gold 24-hour bezel insert, GMT models with this colour configuration have been nicknamed 'root beer' by collectors. This particular version of the root beer has also been dubbed 'The Clint Eastwood' due to its appearance on the wrist of the actor in several films and press shots.  Manufactured circa 1970 this watch belongs to the early production of the root beer models.
