Rolex GMT Master 16750 “Pepsi” from 1983

Up for sale is this Rolex GMT Master Pepsi 16750 with a beautiful black dial with patina on the hands and hour markers, steel case and blue/red bezel. This watch is working perfectly, recently checked by my jeweler. The movement doing the job is the Cal. 3075, which was built around the architecture of the family’s base movement, the Cal. 3035. It increased the balance speed from the 19,800bph of the Cal. 1575 and introduced the now standard high-beat 28,800bph—the eight ticks per second frequency that gives all Rolexes made since the characteristic smoothly sweeping seconds hand. Alongside the uprated speed, the 3075 also brought the Quickset date function to the GMT for the first time. The case is in excellent condition and displays some wear linked with its age. The  bezel insert is also in excellent condition with only little scratches that are barely noticeable. The dial has a beautiful patina and portrays the true beauty of a vintage Rolex. The bracelet comes with an extra link, should fit every wrist size (13 links). Historically, this blue and red bezel was developed for use by Pan-Am pilots starting in 1954 and was even issued as standard equipment. As with most of Rolex’s watches, the GMT 16750 is a truly timeless design and has a charm and sense of connection to the past earned over many years.
