ROLEX GMT MASTER 16750 - PEPSI/BLACK BEZEL

Rolex GMT Master 16750

The Rolex GMT Master 16750 was released by Rolex in 1981 and originally featured a 40mm stainless steel case, bi-directional bezel with blue/red "Pepsi" or all black insert, matte black dial with printed indices and powered by the Rolex calibre 3075 automatic movement with date and GMT functions. The Rolex calibre 3075 introduced the quickset feature to the GMT. Early Rolex GMT Master 16750 watches were fitted with matte dials and are considered highly collectable, later dials had applied hour markers with white gold surrounds. The Rolex GMT Master 1675 was available on either oyster or jubilee bracelets. The 16750 was that last GMT to feature a plexiglas crystal. The Rolex GMT Master 16750 was replaced with the Rolex GMT Master 16700 in 1988.
