Catalogue Note

The Rolex GMT 1675 is probably one of the most celebrated models. Yet, it is also equally difficult to find an example that has survived in original and attractive condition. 
One can only be charmed by the character of the present piece. Its correct Mk 2 matte dial has developed a warm mustard patina. It is attractively complemented by the naturally faded bezel with serif and fat font graduation. The case has still nice proportions and is fitted with the 7836 bracelet stamped for 1972. Part of a private European collection for many years, this watch is a particularly attractive example of an early 1970's Rolex 1675.
