VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Minty Rolex GMT ref 16700 circa 1996 B & P

$12,750.00

A beautiful condition Rolex GMT Master ref. 16700 complete with box and papers. With a T serial number, this time capsule came in to the world in 1996. Over 20 years later we hold in our hands a perfect example of what would have been sitting in a Rolex window throughout the 1990’s. Complete with box, papers, booklets, and even hangtags showing the matching serial number and price of $3300.00. The collectors dream.

Featuring a 40mm diameter stainless steel case which, as stated previously is immaculate.  The 78790 Oyster bracelet shows virtually no stretch, and the famous green reference stamped caseback sticker is fully intact.

The dial is a perfect glossy black and the tritium markers and hands have the softest touch of burnt white, completely even across the entire dial. The bezel insert may be the quiet king on this GMT though, with its deep royal blue contrasting in the most perfect way with the faded peach pink of the other half.

With original Rolex crown, sapphire crystal, the first time on the so called “Pepsi”, and powered by the caliber 3175 self winding movement with sweep seconds, date, and 24 hour arrow hand.  Recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and is additionally offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

If all of that isn’t enough for you, just go ahead and stare at the photos for a minute or two, and we’ll see you soon.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
