Rolex GMT Master ‘Pepsi’ Ref. 1675 ‘Mk II' Dial 1972

Regular price
Unit price


The Rolex GMT-Master needs no introduction. It is perhaps the most iconic travel watch, allowing its wearer to easily distinguish and track two time zones. Developed originally in the 1950's for PanAm pilots, this must needed tool watch was critical to track home and local time. The 1675 is arguably the most iconic GMT reference with a production run of just over 30 years, there are a ton of variations which is why you'll often come across GMT only collectors.

This specific GMT Master is completely all original coming from its one and only owner. It features a MkII matte dial with luminous markers. This watch comes with a beautiful red back Pepsi insert that has aged fantastically along with a saturated service bezel. The stainless steel case has seen wear but is extremely well preserved with little polishing. It can be worn on its original steel Oyster 7836 bracelet with folding oyster clasp. This watch is in full working order with the GMT function working.

Personal Comments: 
Travelling with a GMT-Master Ref. 1675 on the wrist is a dream. It is a watch that combines practicality and style. With mid-century design influence within the watch you sometimes don't need to be the loudest in the airport lounge or hotel bar. To be able to track your home time easily it makes using your iPhone a waste of time.
