Rolex GMT 1675
Maunder Watch Co have for sale an incredibly rare Rolex GMT-Master II reference 1675 from 1963. We were lucky enough to purchase this remarkable example from a close friend of the original owner, he was given it by the heiress to the Tessitura Monti family.
The watch was presented to us with a letter of which the new owner will receive accompanied with the watch, this letter details the remarkable history of the original owner as his incredible past as a Spitfire pilot from one of Europe’s most elite families.
Now to talk about the watch and what a watch it is!
Dial: This example showcases an exceptionally clean and super glossy gilt ‘Type 3 SCOC’ chapter ring dial, this is also a rare variant of ‘Swiss Only’ dial with what has been nicknamed by collectors as an ‘explanation point’. This is displayed under the six o’clock hour marker at the tip of the outer minute track by a small dot of radium.
Case: Much desired for its unusual characteristics, this case displays a PCG ‘pointed crown guard’ also knows as the Cornino. The case serial is 87**** and the proportions of this case are simply wonderful. Heavy shoulders with angled facet along with the crisp, unpolished caseback present a very attractive watch.
Bracelet: remarkably crisp and tight rivet link bracelet. The end link code is 80 and the clasp year code is 63.
Bezel: This is one of the most defining features of any Rolex GMT and when this watch was initially presented to us showcases all the natural ageing we love to see. With even fading to the red created by wear and very fine naturally occurring stress which can be seen in the images. The blue is a very deep royal blue and contrasts perfectly with the pale pink.
