"This Rolex GMT Master reference 1675 from 1963 represents some of the last in the series of the reference with a movement calibre 1560. This calibre was discontinued in these models to make way for the new calibre 1575 in 1964.
The calibre 1560 was a certified chronometer movement and the 1675 was the first GMT Master to imprint the words on the dial to signify this – Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. This movement is not in perfect aesthetic condition due to some humidity damage in the past, but runs perfectly. The caseback reads the appropriate age markings VI 63.
The black bezel variety was one of three options available at retail at the time. There was a choice of either this all black bezel version, red and blue (“Pepsi”) or black and red (“Coke”). It’s said that the black bezel was among the least popular due to its overall similarity to the Submariner and it’s simplicity in comparison to the other more colourful statements. A distinctive feature of this black bezel version is the larger bezel numerals which sport attractive serifs on many of the numbers.
The gilt gloss dial on this piece is in admirable condition, showing much of the original Tritium which lost its ability to glow some years ago – Tritium loses it’s glow after 12.3 years. This particular dial can be identified as a Type 2 Chapter Ring dial with its combination of even spacing of the underline between the SCOC writing and the hour marker, and the Swiss Only chapter ring design. Another distinguishing factor of all Chapter Ring dials is the hyphen between the “Oyster” and “Perpetual” in the upper writing.
The crown and case back show some wear marks but the case is in overall good condition. The watch comes on a brown leather strap and Rolex pin buckle."
