There's just something about the combination of yellow gold and an orange, brownish hue, or better known as: 'Rootbeer'.
Precious metal toolwatches are an oxymoron, save for one exception: the pilot’s watch.
And sure, not every pilot’s watch is suited for the full gold treatment. But let’s imagine you’re a person of some means who has decided to take on flying as a hobby and you’re looking for the perfect sporty yet precious wrist companion. Well, there really is just one choice: the desirable GMT-Master. Take this wonderful reference 16758 GMT-Master from 1982: it’s undoubtedly a sports watch but much sleeker and thinner than its contemporary brethren.
More importantly, the reference 16758 trades in the no-nonsense 40 mm stainless steel Oyster case for a luxurious 18k yellow gold one, here with a matching 18k yellow gold Jubilee bracelet. The 18k yellow gold rotating bezel features a warm brown anodized aluminium inlay that matches perfectly with the toffee color nipple dial with gilt accents.
This 16758 is powered by the upgraded caliber 3075 automatic movement, which introduced the quickset date function to the GMT line. A breathtaking tool watch that has that extra bit of spice added to it, namely gold.
