Rolex unveiled the GMT-Master in 1954, innovating the world of aviation watches by providing pilots with a timepiece capable of displaying 24-hour time for a designated time zone. Building on the success and the pioneering spirit of this model, Rolex introduced its successor in 1959, the reference 1675. The 1675 enjoyed a remarkable production span until 1980, during which Rolex introduced numerous updates and variations to this model, encompassing changes in the dial, bezel, case, and bracelet to meet evolving aesthetics and technological advancements. The piece presented in this lot is an exquisite example of this reference, the 16 750, which stands out for its notable features and exceptional preservation. The stainless steel case of this particular model is in outstanding condition, showcasing a well-maintained bezel. The matte dial is adorned with open minutes and radiates an absolutely gorgeous yellow-ocher luminescence in the indexes and hands, aging in a way that adds an incomparable charm and character to the timepiece. This watch, lavish in its presentation and historical significance, is further enhanced by its luxurious stainless steel Oyster bracelet, providing durability and timeless style. Additionally, this lot includes an extra black bezel, offering versatility and a fresh aesthetic for the watch’s appearance. The reference 16 750, with its refined features and enduring design, represents a pivotal chapter in the evolution of Rolex’s GMT-Master series, making it a coveted piece for collectors who appreciate both the functionality designed for aviators and the elegance suited for any occasion.
