The photos we present you today are taken by Duncan and show his vintage Replica Rolex Watches GMT-Master 1675 from 1966. Let’s go over the changes that the ref. 1675 experienced over time. The photos however will only show Duncan’s 1966 GMT-Master.

The 1959 GMT-Master ref. 1675 had a predecessor, which also featured a red GMT hand and the same name. When the ref. 1675 was released in 1959 it had many similar visual characteristics, however the ref. 1675 was equipped with the new caliber 1565 that beats at 18,000 vph.

Around 1964/1965 the GMT-Master was outfitted with crown guards. Something that the previous GMT-Master, the ref. 6452, didn’t have.Replica Rolex GMT-Masters For Sale without crown guards are incredibly sought-after and prices are much higher than of later models with the crown guards. At first the crown guards were so-called pointy crown guards, which later changed to the rounder crown guards. The pointy crown guards also fetch higher prices as models with rounded, less pointy, crown guards.

Another, for collectors, very significant difference between the GMT-Master from before 1964/1965 and after, is the thinner case and the glossy dial of the models before 64/65. The model showed in the photos, originating from 1966, features the rounder crown guards, thicker case, newer movement and matte dial with white printed chapter ring and text.

The hour markers are in tritium and age over time, which causes the color to change from white to beige or sometimes even brownish. Collectors appreciate it when the hours markers are nice and equally discolored to beige tones, and prices rise accordingly.
