16710 Pepsi GMT B&P
We’re happy to offer you guys another excellent, sapphire GMT. The last one we sold was over five months ago, another indication that these GMT’s are getting harder and harder to come by. This 16710 Pepsi GMT remains in a beautiful condition with a strong case, sharp stainless steel rotatable bezel, stunning faded Pepsi insert and a 78790A Oyster bracelet with Flip-Lock folding clasp and Solid End Links bracelet, that shows hardly any stretch.This GMT really is a joy to wear, it’s such a solid and well crafted watch, a watch where it’s clear to see that the R&D departments at Rolex really had nothing more to add at that point in time, to this perfect Rolex Sports watch.
This 2002 Y-serial GMT-Master II has the, by vintage watchnerd standards, somewhat cooler pinhole case, but is also fitted to the 78790A Oyster bracelet with Solid End Links (SEL). The combination of a pinhole case and SEL bracelet is only found on A, P, K and Y serial Rolex sports watches and was discontinued during the production of the Y serial. This is a great combination if you’d like to enjoy a more ‘vintage’ style case, but want modern techniques and higher water resistance for everyday reliability. A cool little extra is that these 16710’s with pinhole case and SEL bracelet were only produced for roughly 3-4 years, only adding to the (future) collectibility of these specific GMT watches. This Rolex GMT Master remains in a beautiful condition with a spotless dial and original Fat Font, Serif Pepsi insert which has faded to a wonderfully and amazing pink color. The overall condition of the watch truly is excellent.
The watch is accompanied by its original inner and outer boxes, punched papers, hangtags and booklet. This 16710 Pepsi GMT B&P was fully serviced and the movement is running according the Swiss COSC specs, she will be sold with a 24 month warranty.
