ROLEX GMT MASTER 1675: Our 5 Minute Review | Swiss Watch Trader

OUR 5 MINUTE REVIEW OF THE ROLEX GMT MASTER1675

Sit back and read our 5 minute review of the Rolex GMT Master 1675. The Rolex GMT Master 1675 was in production from 1959 until 1980 and was initially only available with the iconic red/blue Pepsi bezel insert. It wasn’t until the early 1970’s that an all black bezel was made available. Prior to 1965 the GMT Master was powered by the Rolex calibre 1565 automatic movement - from 1965 the calibre 1575 was used. Early examples of the 1675 can be found with small GMT hands and gilt glossy dials. From around 1966 matte dials were fitted. Rare and collectable versions of the Rolex GMT Master 1675 include the Pointed Crown Guard and MK1 Long E.

During its production run, the Rolex GMT Master 1675 was powered by two different automatic mechanical movements.

Rolex GMT Master 1675 watches produced from 1959 until 1964 are powered by the Rolex caliber 1565. This movement has a power reserve of 44 hours and has a frequency of 18,000 beats per hour. 

Rolex GMT Master 1675 watches produced after 1964 received the Rolex caliber 1575 movement which featured a slight hight beat rate of 19,800 beats per hour and benefits from an increased power reserve of 48 hours.

In 1971 Rolex updated the caliber 1575 movement with the “hacking” function. This meant that the wearer could complete stop the watch whilst setting the time and date.
