VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex GMT ref 16750 Transitional Model Matte Dial circa 1982

SOLD

An exceptionally beautiful condition example vintage transitional model Rolex GMT ref 16750, case serial# 7.3 million circa 1982 with beautiful  original matte black dial with rich patina’d “squash” 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 heavy Oyster 78360 bracelet with #580 end pieces and deployment clasp and letter G date code for 1982.

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.

Brand

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.
