In 1954, was presented the first GMT model, Reference 6542 with its immediately recognizable Bakelite bezel insert. Only 5 years later, in the light of the success of this model, the reference 1675 was presented, which made significant and important innovations able to solve some flaws of the previous model. First of all, the Bakelite ring was replaced with a more resistant steel bezel and were added to the crown guards to protect the crown from any hits. The lot offered here is a beautiful specimen of 1675 with special features: the stainless steel case is in nice conditions with a well-preserved bezel and a super nice black gilt dial. This watch definitely lavish, together with the appealing feature just described, is also equipped with the always fascinating stainless steel oyster riveted bracelet and presents a special detail on the back. The precious designation “Fuerza Aerea del Perù” is engraved around the edge of the case back and is clearly visible. The Peruvian Air Force is thought that in the early 1960s have commissioned Rolex with the supply of watches for their officers and thus extremely rare.
