Catalogue Note

Available in the market from 1989 to 1999, the reference 16700 was accessible at the same time as reference 16710. However, the main differences between the two references are that the reference 16700 bears the caliber 3175, which doesn't allow you to adjust the GMT-hand independently whereas reference 16710 does. As the manufacturing year of the present watch is during 1997, the present watch still applies the use of tritium as its luminous material while Rolex uses luminova for all of 16700 made after 1998. Being a recent transitional model, the present watch is in great condition and hence is an amazing choice for anyone initiating their interest in vintage watches.
