Rolex GMT ref 1675 18K YG circa 1978 Exquisite!


Exceptional example vintage Rolex GMT ref 1675 18K YG circa 1978 with original 18K YG hidden clasp Jubilee bracelet. Featuring a 40mm diameter case, acrylic crystal, brown hour bezel, and beautiful original mahogany brown original dial with “nipple” indexes and gilt hands. With original 18K YG hidden clasp Jubilee bracelet. Powered by caliber 1570 self winding movement with sweep seconds, date, and GMT functionality.

The dial and 24 hour insert on this fine example are quite remarkable. The dial is a rich mahogany brown color, with raised gold nipple indexes and original tritium lume with perfect condition matching tritium gold hands.The dial surface is a rich and vibrant, gloss surface, not the matte chocolate brown, nor the very shiny spin finish often seen on later models. The bezel insert is a rich brown color matching the mahogany color of the dial, and which takes on  different tones depending on the light.

The case appears to be beefy and unpolished and with original factory finish. The bracelet we would conservatively judge to be 85%.

The watch has recently been serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and is offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Your purchase includes one of our fine handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!

A truly stunning and remarkable example vintage gold GMT.
