Catalogue Note

Nicknamed the “Fat Lady” for its extra thick case that houses the caliber 3085, the present watch is a Rolex reference 16760 GMT-Master II. Debuted in 1983 and was in production till roughly 1988. The reference has a significantly sportier case as it has a thicker case, wider bezel, and larger crown guards than its predecessors.  Interestingly, it was not until recently that Rolex connoisseurs  discovered that the earlier samples of the 16760 lacked the mention of “Date” on the dial unlike later examples that read “Oyster Perpetual Date.”
