1982 Rolex GMT Master 16750 Matte Dial Pepsi $12900

Awesome 1982 Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master model number 16750 with original matte dial and faded Pepsi bezel, freshly serviced and ready to wear.  Nice gently used condition throughout with an awesome vintage look.  The practical advantage of the 16750 over the 1675 is that you basically have the same looking watch with the quick-set date feature of the calibre 3075 movement which makes it much easier to set when the time comes.   The rare matte dial is in great shape say for a bit of Tritium loss on the marker at 4:00.  When these were sent into Rolex for servicing they most often replaced the original dial with a glossy service dial making these matte dial very rare and highly sought after.  A beautiful early 80's example with a fantastic vintage look!!

Price: $12900 USD

Circa: 1982

Style: Sport

Case: Fully signed solid stainless steel case with original rotating bezel, original crown and Oyster style bracelet.  Signed between the lugs at 12:00 with the model number 16750, then at 6:00 with a serial number in the 7.1 million range dating the watch to approximately 1982.  The case measures 39mm in diameter with a nice thin profile.  The original crown is correctly signed and screws down nicely.  The case back is signed inside Montre Rolex SA, Geneva Switzerland Patented, Stainless Steel, 16750.  Overall the case has been nicely re-polished maybe once or twice in the past, but for awhile so has nice light wear throughout.  The bezel turns with nice friction.  The original 78360 bracelet with 580 endlinks in also in nicel lightly used condition with minor stretch.  The buckle is stamped with the date code N5 so is the correct model number but most likely a later replacement as this code dates it to 1989.
