The reference 16750 was produced for a relatively short period. Only between 1981 and 1988. Therefore, it's a reference we don't come across that often.With the reference 16750 Rolex introduced a GMT-Master with a quickset of the date. Around 1986 the matte dial was replaced by a glossy dial with 18k white-gold hour marker surroundings on the markers. This one dates back to '84 and therefore still has a matte dial, which gives the watch a very cool vintage look. Especially the inlay of this watch looks very cool; it has bright blue and red colours. The watch comes as a full set, so with inner- and outer box, papers, tags and even Rolex service papers.

Introduction

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.
