Notes

 While the GMT-reference 1675 enjoyed a long production spam (from about 1959 until 1980), it is as usually the case on Rolex Sports models that the early versions are the most coveted and least produced. This example ticks all the boxes as shown by its pointy crown guards, a nicely kept case showing thick lugs with a Portuguese import stamp on the lugs, a beautiful original gilt chapter ring dial that is turning to a deep brown color, and the small arrow GMT-hand, making all these factors among the most collectible 1675’s to be produced.
