ROLEX GMT MASTER 1675 MK 5 MAXI
It’s been a while, but we’ve located another gorgeous GMT-Master, this time it’s a 1675 with a stunning MK 5 Maxi dial. The matte black dial is actualy more matte grey and features beautiful eggshell patinated Tritium, which matches perfectly with the hands. The case is in a very nice condition with fat lugs, strong crownguards and a sharp stainless steel bezel. The watch is still fitted to the original 78360 Oyster bracelet with 580 endlinks and is from the same year as the rest of the watch – 1978. There is some stretch to the bracelet but nothing too shocking, this bracelet will last for another 40 years.
The inlay on our GMT is still the original, a redback fat font inlay, which has nicely faded to a beautiful light blue and pinkish red – the blue especially is very attractive once on the wrist (also matches perfect with some of our blue straps). The silver date-wheel is also the original and features the desirable open six and nine numerals. Fun fact; We suspect that the small part of grey-ish fading on the bezel around the three o’clock position (between the 4 and 6 on the Pespi inlay) is due to the former owners thumb, when winding the crown or setting the hands, the thumb touches/rubs this part of the inlay exactly.
The entire watch was fully serviced according to the Rolex specs and will be sold with a twelve month warranty.
