One of the most striking of the Rolex GMT-Master watches was the 1675, produced between 1959 and 1980. Not only did this watch enjoy one of the longest production runs in Rolex history; it also is one of the most easily-recognized because of its beautiful blue and red bezel.
Because the Rolex GMT Master 1675 was produced for such a long time, it is one of the easier vintage Rolex watches to find. However, many collectors prefer an earlier and more worn version than one of the newer models.
For the first ten years of production the Rolex GMT Master 1675 featured a small triangle on the extra hour hand. This was succeeded by a red hand with a larger triangle in the 1970s and is one of the easiest identifying points in helping to date this watch. Earlier models also featured pointed crown guards as well as a chapter ring. The very earliest Rolex GMT Masters were produced with a Bakelite bezel, but the Ref. 1675 has always had a metal bezel for sturdiness and stability.
Another big tell that distinguishes it from other modern Rolex GMT watches is its Jubilee bracelet, which consists of five links, today, most Rolex GMT-Master watches are equipped with new Oyster bracelet, the Jubilee bracelet could only be used on their Datejust or Day Date series. Now this 1675 GMT replica with Jubilee bracelet makes you fully enjoy the vintage charm of Rolex. Various retro elements on the watch make it stand out and becomes the first choice among so many vintage watches.
