Rolex 2 Tone GMT ref 1675 “Chocolate” circa 1979


A beautiful condition example vintage Rolex GMT ref# 1675 SS/14K YG with “rootbeer” dial circa 1979. Featuring a 39mm diameter stainless steel case with 14K YG bezel and crown, acrylic crystal  and with a pristine condition original “rootbeer” nipple dial with warmly patina’d tritium luminous indexes and matching tritium luminous hands. With a rich 2 tone bronze and gold bi-directional 24 hour bezel insert.

Powered by self winding caliber 1575 movement with sweep seconds and date and 24 hour 2nd time zone arrow tipped hand. Recently fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

A previously polished case, but with beefy lugs, clear ref and serial #s, and without corrosion.  Shown on a rich Horween cordovan strap, or your choice of sporty leather strap.

Note: there is a range of brownish tone colors and finishes that are collectively referred to as “rootbeer” The current example is a late production 1675 model, distinguished by the raised gold Rolex crown to the dial, and with a color that is more chocolate with a semi gloss finish, rather than the later “eye of the tiger,” spin finish surface. The current dial is a rich mahogany color, in superb condition and in our opinion is absolutely stunning.
