Rolex GMT ref 16750 Transitional Model Matte Dial circa 1981


An exceptionally beautiful condition example vintage transitional model Rolex GMT ref 16750 circa 1982 with beautiful  original matte black dial with rich patina’d cream color luminous tritium indexes and matching hands, acrylic crystal, and gently faded red and blue “Pepsi” bezel. 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 later heavy Oyster 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 with the top surface of the lugs only, lightly detailed. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.

Includes our fine glazed Italian leather watch pouch, great for travel and storage. A $45 value.
