Rolex GMT-Master 1675 "Pepsi" MK2.5 "Lemrich" Dial (1973)
Pre-owned Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675, with a 40mm stainless steel case, original steel bidirectional rotatable 24-hour graduated bezel with blue and red ("Pepsi") aluminum lunette, black matte MK2.5 Tritium "SWISS - T<25" dial with creamy indices, hour, minutes and seconds hands, red GMT hour hand with creamy arrowhead, date indicator at 3 o’clock with "Cyclops" magnifier. Plexiglass crystal. Automatic movement calibre 1570. Oystersteel bracelet with Oysterlock safety deployant clasp.
We offer you a watch with an MK2.5 dial: compared to the coronet of the MK2, this crown is splayed and is not elongated like the MK3; the "ROLEX" text is full of exaggerated serifs, especially in the letters "R", "L" and "E"; the remainder of the dial fonts are closer to that of the MK0 than the previous MKs, also without serifs and with longer middle "E" bars; the "S" in "SUPERLATIVE" and "O" of "OFFICIALLY" are slightly taller than the rest of the characters in each line.
The dial makers were various, and the dial stamp seen on the back of this one is "Lemrich".
The standard Pan Am or "Pepsi" bezel inserts 1675 have only 2 attributes that are mandatory - a red back and "oval 8s" (the top half of the number 8 is oval).
In good state of conservation, with all original parts. With original box (without papers).
Read more about this watch...
As the world became a global territory for industrialization, a growing population in the need to travel between countries boosted civil aviation. In 1953, Rolex was entrusted to design a technical wristwatch specially for Pan Am’s crew. The result of this important task was the GMT-Master: able to read the time in 2 different time zones simultaneously. Rolex furnished the GMT-Master with a pair of center hour and minute hands to indicate the local time along with an extra 24-hour hand to display a second time zone by pointing to the 24-hour-marked rotating bezel.
From 1959 to 1980, the Rolex GMT-Master 1675 was the only GMT model produced by Rolex. It became immensely popular and, as is Rolex’s style, was incrementally improved throughout those 21 years. In 1965, Rolex rolled out the 1575 movement, which beat at faster 19.800 VPH and was engraved  for its base calibre. The 1575 movement was later upgraded with a hacking function around 1971; this version of the 1575 remained the same throughout the rest of the 1675 production run. The calibre 1570 is a certified chronometer (COSC) movement. It is an automatic self-winding calibre with 26 jewels with a power reserve of 48 hours.
The GMT-Master series 1,8...-2,9... have a "Standard case", which is 13,0mm thick.
