Description: When we get asked what Rolex are the best investments without having to give up an arm and a leg, we point them to neo-vintage pieces. The 16750 GMT sits on the early side of the neo-vintage scale coming shortly after the 1675 classic plexiglass variant.
This 16750 has white gold surrounds that were introduced to the 16750 gmt in this reference and with the tritium markers provide a warmth of color to the otherwise sterile mirror dial. This piece has an excellent case that has been previously lightly polished in the past. The case remains thick and even in the lugs and crown guards.
There is a bit of patina developing around the white gold surround markers which is a characteristic of dials from this era. It is otherwise unnoticeable unless you are specifically catching it in the right light. The star of the show otherwise is the deep saturated lume on the hands and dial. This is further enhanced but the monotone insert that has taken on a deep blue hue over the years of use.
We truly think this is an exceptional piece that will continue to look better over the years of use.
