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-MasterFasten your seatbelts for the story of the Rolex GMT-Master. Aviation company Pan-Am requested Rolex to create a wristwatch that would display multiple time-zones simultaneously, as their flights got longer; crossing multiple time-zones. Rolex came up with the GMT-Master (‘GMT’ stands for ‘Greenwich Mean Time’) in 1954. The watch features a date-function and an extra hour hand (with triangle) that points out the second time zone on the bi-directional turning, 24hour bezel.Still linked to aviation and although meant for professional use, it enjoys a much wider fan base ever since it first saw light. Over the years it underwent some changes and there are so many wonderful variations of this all-time Rolex classic. Some GMT’s are great as a single purchase, others are a wonderful addition to any collection and some of them can be considered as the crowning glory.REF. 1675Introduced in 1959 and with a very long production run of little over 20 years: the 1675! On this model they added the ‘pointed crown guards’ (1675 with PCG AKA ‘Cornino)’ that got replaced by regular rounded crown guards in 64/65. The dial also underwent some changes from glossy gilt chapterring to a matte radial dial in the end. (with a lot of variations in between, like the rare ‘exclamation mark’, ‘underline’ and ‘Double-swiss’ dials). There was a change in the red GMT hand as well as the small arrow was replaced by a bigger one.The 1675 was mainly produced in steel, but was also available in 18k yellow gold or a combination of both materials. In the early 70s it became the first Rolex Professional watch with – optional – factory fitted jubilee bracelet.
