Rolex GMT Master ref 16700 Pepsi Patina’d Tritium circa 1991 w/ Box

$16,500.00

A remarkable condition example of popular and now discontinued Rolex GMT Master 1 ref# 16700. Featuring a 40mm diameter stainless steel case with bi-directional 24 hour red and blue nicely faded bezel insert, sapphire crystal, and stunning glossy black original dial with richly patina’d tritium indexes and matching hands. With original Rolex stainless steel 93150 Oyster bracelet with flip lock clasp with 501B endpieces and corresponding P10 date code for 1991.

Featuring a very beefy case, appears to have had very little use, though it may have been lightly polished some time in its history. With partial original green caseback sticker. An exceptionally beautiful and well preserved example, with especially pleasing patina’d lumes. Includes original Rolex box with 16700 sticker intact. Priced not for the weak of heart, but reflecting how special we think this example is.

The 16700 is fairly small production model, first introduced in 1988, and essentially the 16750 quickset acrylic crystal model, rebadged as the 16700 with the addition of the sapphire crystal and a change from the 3075 to the 3175 movement. Though in production from 1988 until 1999, this model was less favored than the GMT Master II ref 16710 that was introduced at the same time, because of its independently set hour hand. The 16700 had a much smaller production than the 16710 and consequently is a much harder watch to find.

The watch has recently been fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Also included in your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!

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.
