Catalogue Note

This 1675 was the first bi-metallic GMT Master to be produced, all previous executions were only available in steel. The GMT model with this colour configuration has been nicknamed 'root beer' by collectors, a reference to its copper and gold 24-hour bezel insert. 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 movies and press shots. Manufactured circa 1970 the present watch is an early example of the model.
