Our opinion: The GMT has become more legendary than the Submariner recently with a very long wait for the return of the Pepsi bezel. When it was released, it created a huge speculation effect on all GMTs and collectors appreciated them even more than in the past. This is rare in its reference 1675 MK1 long E zinc sulphite version with its PEPSI bezel and its jubilee steel bracelet. Model reissued by Rolex and which launched the new speculation of the GMT master PEPSI. Matt dial with a slight patina and an insert that matches these vintages so well. Such a beautiful collector's watch with so much character. The watch is unpolished, still thick, an extremely rare model in this configuration. The true investment value of Rolex. In addition, new ones are sold even more expensive than these rare and limited production models. So hurry before they explode in price! This one is in super super full set with a special double numbered caseback like all special editions from Rolex.
