Released in 1980, the Rolex GMT-Master ref. 16 750 replaced the long-lived ref. 1675. While most of its aesthetical attributes remain unchanged, there were some minor technical upgrades featured in the new transitional reference such as the new cal. 3075. The present example from circa 1981 is offered in attractive overall conditions: the stainless steel case still retains good quality proportions, the mat dial with open minutes has absolutely gorgeous yellow-ocher indexes and hands, aged in a magnificent way capable of conferring charm to the whole watch. This watch definitely lavish, together with the appealing feature just described, is also equipped with the always fascinating stainless steel Oyster bracelet and a charming bezel with vivid red color and the blue one that has faded until they reach an almost gray color. With the innovative quick-set date function and water resistance enhanced to 100 meters compared to only 50 meters previously, the 16 750 is absolutely one of the coolest vintage GMT ever produced.
