Up for sale is a vintage Rolex GMT Master reference 1675, dating from c. 1970.
For many collectors of vintage Rolex, this watch—the legendary Reference 1675—is the GMT to own. The 1675 has its own legend and mystique, being the model favored by astronauts like Jack Swigert of Apollo 13 and Edgar Mitchell of Apollo 14. In fact, it’s the latter who brought his personal 1675 to the Moon.
This particular example is clean, classic—in short, everything we’d come to expect from the reference. The matte dial has strong, even patina throughout the dial and hands, and the colors on the bezel are still crisp though they show the beginnings of a nice fade. With a sharp case (that shows signs of a masterful professional refinishing), it’s a GMT that will get you anywhere you need to be—and remind you where you’re from.
