Catalogue Note

The present watch is a reference 1675 that features a gilt dial with a small GMT hand and a chapter ring on a thin case with eagle beak crown guards. This reference was introduced in 1959 after replacing the original reference 6542 and has been in Rolex’s production until 1980. Although the reference 1675 had a very long run, there were many changes and variations made for this reference by Rolex. For instance, the present watch is very rare as its configuration of having a chapter ring, exclamation mark, gilt dial and Eagle Beak crown guards was only in production for approximately 4 years, from 1959 to 1963. The tiny variations of these vintage Rolex are details which stimulate a collector's interest and the present lot is a very appealing example.
