Rolex GMT-Master 16718

Another insane Rolex GMT-Master carrying reference 16718. This time for those who want to show off but don’t have the balls to rock the ‘Serti Dial’.

This piece dates back to the year 1990, runs on caliber 3185 and is, as you can see, made out of 18k yellow gold. This GMT comes with one of our favourite bracelets; the 18k yellow gold ‘Super Jubilee Bracelet’ always accompanied by the very elegant ‘concealed’ clasp as we see on the ‘President Bracelets’.

The watch is carried out with a Sapphire crystal under which we’ll find the ‘Copper’ tritium dial that matches perfectly with its brownish bezel insert. The watch is in overall good condition and only has some minor stretch on the bracelet. And you know what they say: ‘Once you go brown, you’ll never be let down’.

Rolex GMT-Master 1675 ‘MKII Pepsi’

This Rolex GMT-Master 1675 definitely is one of the most beautifully aged pieces we’ve ever had in store.

The watch dates back to 1977, is made out of stainless steel and runs on caliber 1570. We really like the fact that the ‘Pepsi’ insert has discoloured and faded beautifully on the outer side of the bezel. This gives the watch an amazing look in combination with the yellow-coloured tritium plots. Geeks will notice that the watch doesn’t have the ‘Radial MKIII Dial’ and that 1977 with a 5-million serial is pretty late for an ‘MKII Dial’. But this watch is 100% correct as it happened quite often that Rolex used earlier left-over dials to assemble their watches. There are just a few examples of this watch – the dial in combination with the case from 1977 – that we know of so it’s pretty rare. Last but not least, the watch is in great condition and it comes with its original ‘78360’ Oyster bracelet and 580-stamped endlinks.

Rolex GMT-Master II 16710 ‘Pepsi’

The GMT-Master is a classic and beloved among many!

In 1989, Rolex introduced the successor of the reference 16760. Namely, the GMT-Master II under reference 16710. This stainless steel sports watch had a slimmer design than its predecessor. The example that Amsterdam Vintage Watches has for offer today, dates back to 1999. One thing that should be mentioned is this piece’s pristine condition. The case and bezel have razor sharp edges and barely have any scratches. The matching, stainless steel solid Oyster bracelet is in great condition too. If you’re looking for a classic Rolex in mint condition for a fair price, this is the one you should go for!

Rolex GMT-Master 1675 “Long E/ MK1”

We are thrilled to offer you a special Rolex GMT-Master!

This lovely piece, with reference 1675, dates back to ’67 and looks so stunning! The watch has the standard case size of 40mm and is made out of stainless steel. It runs on a caliber 1570 and has a period-correct, matching riveted Oyster bracelet. The watch has an MK1 dial, also called ‘Long E’; the distinctive feature of this dial is that the word Rolex seems to be printed like R O LE X. The case has some scratches, here and there, but is in perfect condition. Moreover, this piece has a beautifully aged copper-coloured, fat font bezel. The matte black dial has creamy, egg-shell colored tritium plots and matching hands with a small GMT arrow. The matte black dial in combination with the small arrow is a “transitional” configuration and produced in a very small quantity, early in 1967.

 

Rolex GMT-Master 1675/3 “Nipple dial”

We, at Amsterdam Vintage Watches, love a “Pepsi” GMT, but what about a bicolor GMT with a black bezel?

This stunning 1675/3 dates back to 1978 and houses the caliber 1570. This reference, the first bicolor GMT, was introduced in the ’70s. Instead of a two-tone (blue/red) bezel this GMT has an 18k yellow-gold bezel with a single-coloured black aluminium inlay. The bezel matches perfectly with the black dial. Moreover, the dial features some distinguishable aspects, like the glossy, gilt face, the 18k yellow-gold nipple index and applied Rolex logo. What we love about this piece, is that it is in immaculate condition as the case and bracelet are razor sharp.

A fancy sports watch in excellent condition.

Rolex GMT-Master 16753 “Root Beer”

Root beer: A sweet, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, soda of which the primary flavour is obtained from the sassafras tree.

However, in terms of watch aficionados, rootbeer is the nickname of the Rolex GMT-Master 16753. Let’s start with the 1675, which is the Rolex GMT-Master nicknamed “Pepsi” because of the blue/red-coloured bezel. This is one of Rolex’s most popular vintage watches nowadays. The GMT-Master was only available in stainless steel or yellow gold and came in different bezel and dial variations. Nevertheless, it was not available yet in the stainless steel and yellow gold combination. This all changed thanks to the 16753 a.k.a. “Root beer”, which was the first bicolor Rolex sportswatch.

This example dates back to 1979 and has a beautifully faded “Root beer” bezel. People often mistakenly call a GMT-Master with a brown bezel a “Root beer” while only the models with a brown/cream-coloured bezel are true “Root beers”. The 18k yellow-gold and stainless steel Jubilee bracelet is in great condition and barely has any stretch, which is quite rare for a nearly thirty-year old bicolor bracelet. The stainless steel case, measuring 40mm in diameter, houses the caliber 3075. So, it has the quickset-date function. The dial was available in black or brown and this one has a brown dial with 18k yellow-gold applied indices. Thanks to its index, the dial is better known as the nipple dial, because… Well, just have a look at the picture and you will get the point. What we, at Amsterdam Vintage Watches, really love about this specimen, is the discolouration of the indices, which is especially visible at the 12-hour position. This has probably to do with the use of a certain type of (bad) lacquer by Rolex.

It’s also nicknamed “The Clint Eastwoord” because he loved and wore this watch too. Getting this piece will instantly make you a badass and give you the right to call anybody ‘a punk’, punk!

Rolex GMT-Master 1675 “Gilt Underline PCG”

The GMT-Master 1675 is a classic and beloved among many!

This Rolex GMT-Master 1675 dates back to 1962 and is a very special specimen. This stainless steel sports watch aged magnificently and features many desirable features. Lets start with the mirror gloss gilt dial that Rolex produced in the early 60s. Most notable is the “underline”, positioned underneath the SCOC, that was made to distinguish a certain batch of dials in this year that carried less radioactivity. The surface of the dial is lively and the vintage feel is enhanced by the tritium zinc sulfide plots with amazing patina. Coming with the original handset with small GMT-hand, aged slightly darker.

The 40mm measuring case is equipped with “Eagle-beak crown-guards” referred to as PCG or by Italians collectors: “Cornino”. Not unpolished but the condition is strong and the lugs are thick. Last but not least we have to give the bracelet some extra attention. We rarely come across these expandable “Oyster Stretch” bracelets (stamped 6636) with 20mm ends. (stamped 80)

Rolex GMT-Master 16750 “Spider dial”

‘It looks cracked. Is it broken?’ Wearing this watch on the wrist, you can not wish for a better compliment than this. You’re right, we’re talking about the spider dial. This GMT-Master, with reference 16750, has beautiful burst in its dial. The reason behind this desired imperfection is that the lacquer on the dial had not been perfectly finished by Rolex as the brand went through an experimental period during the 80s.
