Philadelphia, PA, United States
Rolex GMT-Master, Reference 1675, circa 1967, with first execution (MK1) "Long E" matte dial (i.e., the first iteration of the matte dial Rolex used on the GMT-Master after the earlier "gilt" dials, which were used from 1954-1966). This example also features the popular "fuchsia" bezel insert, which is believed to be a factory paint error, as the red side of the "Pepsi" bezel is fuchsia in color; these fuchsia bezels are only found on watches from 1966-1970.
This watch also comes complete with its original box and papers, and includes both sets of "punched" papers - the chronometer certificate and guarantee certificate (booklet) - which is uncommon to find nowadays, as most watch paperwork from this era was discarded over the years by prior owners.
The dial is in beautiful condition, with no visible damage, and the original tritium luminescent material has developed a nice warm, yellow patina in both the dial and matching hands. Likewise, the case has been well maintained over years, showing thick lugs, and the original beveled "chamfers" still visible.
