Being the predecessor of the infamous GMT-Master Ref. 1675, this example offered here is the very first version of the transitional reference 16750. This reference has rapidly turned into a sough-after for collectors, and there’s no wonder why; aesthetically the same as the 1675, this 16750 MK1 (from 1979-80) features a black matte dial with ‘Maxi’ creamy patina lume plots and matching hands. It also preserves the plexi of his elder version.

 

The distinctive ‘Pepsi’ bezel is in extraordinary good condition with fat font numerals and matching patina pearl. The 40mm stainless steel case is in good condition with some signs of polishing.

 

The watch is running good and keeping time. It comes suited with a vintage Rolex 78360 bracelet with 580 endlinks.
