About

Vintage * *Complete with: Xupes Presentation Pouch dated 1963 *Case Size: 40mm *Strap: Brown Leather *Age: 1963 *Strap length: Adjustable up to 20cm. Please note we can order spare links and alternate length/colour straps if required. For a quote please contact us. ** Condition: The item is in good pre-owned condition and shows some general signs of wear or patina relative to its age. This Rolex GMT Master reference 1675 from 1963 represents some of the last in the series of the reference with a movement calibre 1560. This calibre was discontinued in these models to make way for the new calibre 1575 in 1964. The calibre 1560 was a certified chronometer movement and the 1675 was the first GMT Master to imprint the words on the dial to signify this – Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. This movement is not in perfect aesthetic condition due to some humidity damage in the past, but runs perfectly. The caseback reads the appropriate age markings VI 63. The black bezel variety was one of three options available at retail at the time. There was a choice of either this all black bezel version, red and blue (“Pepsi”) or black and red (“Coke”). It’s said that the black bezel was among the least popular due to its overall similarity to the Submariner and it’s simplicity in comparison to the other more colourful statements. A distinctive feature of this black bezel version is the larger bezel numerals which sport attractive serifs on many of the numbers. The gilt gloss dial on this piece is in admirable condition, showing much of the original Tritium which lost its ability to glow some years ago – Tritium loses it’s glow after 12.3 years. This particular dial can be identified as a Type 2 Chapter Ring dial with its combination of even spacing of the underline between the SCOC writing and the hour marker, and the Swiss Only chapter ring design. Another distinguishing factor of all Chapter Ring dials is the hyphen between the “Oyster” and “Perpetual” in the upper writing. The crown and case back show some wear marks but the case is in overall good condition. The watch comes on a brown leather strap and Rolex pin buckle.

About Rolex (Designer)

Ask anyone, anywhere, to name a luxury watch brand, and the answer will probably be “Rolex.” This enviable worldwide recognition can be credited in part to the genius of company founder Hans Wilsdorf. When the German-born watch dealer and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, set up their London enterprise, in 1905, they called it Wilsdorf & Davis, according to the traditional formula.


But Wilsdorf was determined to come up with another name that was short, would look good on a watch dial and was easy to say and remember in several languages. In 1908, he trademarked the name Rolex, and by 1920, he had moved the company to Geneva and redubbed it as Montres Rolex S.A.


But the main reasons for the brand’s success are its commitment to precision and unflagging pursuit of innovation. In 1926, the company introduced the aptly named Oyster model. With a screw-down crown and case back, both fitted with rubber gaskets, this was the first truly waterproof watch.


Five years later, Rolex upped the ante with the Oyster Perpetual. That model’s patented Perpetual movement contained a rotor mechanism enabling it to self-wind. In another trendsetting move, in 1945, the brand debuted the Datejust, with a date window prominently displayed on the dial.


The company’s two most iconic models are sports watches. Although the Submariner, which debuted in 1953, was developed as a dive watch, its waterproof case, solid construction and good looks made it a favorite of adventurers and urbanites alike, including James Bond, who wore it in classics like Dr. No and Goldfinger. The Daytona, the racing chronograph made famous by Paul Newman, is especially sought after by collectors. Newman’s personal Daytona, which hit the auction block in 2017, sold for $17.8 million.
