Rolex GMT ref 16750 Transitional Model Matte Dial circa 1981


A fine condition example vintage transitional model Rolex GMT ref 16750 circa 1981 with beautiful original matte black dial with white tritium indexes and matching hands, acrylic crystal, and bright red and blue “Pepsi” bezel. With sharp condition case that appears to have never been polished. The 16750 model features a 3075 caliber quick set date movement instead of the earlier non quick set date 1500 series movement but predates the introduction of the sapphire crystal so called “GMT 1” model. With minty condition slightly younger J date code heavy Oyster ref# 78360 bracelet with #580 end pieces and deployment clasp.

The earliest of these “transitional” models continued the use of the vintage style matte black dial, while later models were fitted with the more modern gloss dial with metal luminous surrounds. The current example is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition and has just been fully serviced. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Your purchase includes our signature fine glazed Italian leather watch pouch, great for travel and storage. A $55 value.
