1960 Rolex Gilt Chapter-Ring 1675 Pepsi Pre-Tropical GMT
Description: Perhaps our favorite dial variant of the 1675 is the Gilt glossy dial with the encircled Chapter-Ring variant. These dials only appear correctly on the early 60’s GMT’s. We could stop there and we think we would have your attention, but wait there’s more. The gloss dial is free from any major detracting blemishes. These gilt gloss dials are plagued usually from tool marks or mishandling over the years and are less tolerant to shaky, uncareful hands. But wait there’s more, this dial in particular appears to be turningtropical. What this means is that these dials have aged to a brownish hue. This is mostly seen in watches that have lived near hot environments or near the equator, those with “tropical” climates as it seems. The case appears unpolished and retains the original bevels as well. We could say more, but it would do no justice to this watch.
