The Improvements of the Fake GMT-Master ref. 1675

The new GMT-Master reference brought along with it some modifications over the previous GMT-Master ref. 6542, in addition to undergoing several improvements over its 21-year production period. There are several variations of the GMT-Master. The first and most obvious change to the GMT-Master ref. 1675 is the inclusion of crown guards. The first generation of crown guards were pointy in shape, almost resembling little horns, hence its nickname, “El Cornino”. These pointed crown guards (PCG) were eventually replaced with square shaped ones around 1964 followed by rounder ones later on. Naturally, because the pointed crown guards were only manufactured for a few years, they are highly coveted by vintage Rolex collectors and typically command a premium over other types of crown guards.

The Rolex GMT-Master ref. 1675 keeps a balance of style and function.

Aside from the crown guards, the GMT-Master ref. 1675 also included a new label on the dial-Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. Powering the ref. 1675 were two different automatic movements. First it was the Rolex Caliber 1565 until 1964 and then the Rolex Caliber 1575 for the remainder of the model’s production period. In 1971, Rolex introduced the hacking feature to the ref. 1675. Hacking means that the seconds hands stops when the user pulls out the winding crown permitting more precise time setting.

The GMT-Master ref. 1675 models with the Caliber 1565 featured a black gloss dial with a smaller triangle-tipped GMT-hand, while the later versions with the Caliber 1575 had black matte dials and a larger triangle-tipped 24-hour hand.

Different Versions of the GMT-Master ref. 1675

When it first made its debut, the GMT-Master ref. 1675 sported the iconic steel body and red and blue “Pepsi” bezel look. However, different versions of the ref. 1675 were also offered. In the early 1970s, an all black version of the GMT-Master ref. 1675 was presented. So rather than the bi-color bezel where the red signified daylight hours and blue indicated nighttime hours, the bezel was in solid black.

Also new to the GMT-Master collection were more luxurious versions in yellow gold and Rolesor yellow gold and steel. The ref. 1675/8 is the full yellow gold version of the vintage GMT-Master while the ref. 1675/3 is the two-tone version. Both the ref. 1675/8 and the ref. 1675/3 are available with either a black dial and black bezel configuration or a brown dial and brown and beige bezel combo. The brown and gold GMT-Masters are often referred to as “Root Beer” due to the similarity in colors to the popular soda. The gold and two-tone versions of the GMT-Master ref. 1675 also had “nipple dials” characterized by distinct gold hour markers. Furthermore, both versions also included Oyster and Jubilee bracelet options.

Vintage Counterfeit Rolex Gmt Master Bakelite Ref. 6542

When it comes to GMT Master’s none are as desirable as the ref. 6542, the very first cheap replica rolex ever issued of this model. Designed to be the watch of choice for Pan-Am pilots, the GMT Master became the benchmark when it comes to two-timezone watches. A title that it still as true today as it was when the watch was launched in 1954. Despite being the first, what mainly sets it apart from later versions of this model is the bakelite bezel. The numerals inside the bezel are actually filled in with Radium. The thought behind it is that even in low-light conditions you could easily check the time in both time-zones. While this must have looked amazing when these watches were first issued, it was also a cause for trouble. Bakelite is by itself already quite brittle, and combined with the radioactivity of the Radium made it that Rolex discontinued this bezel quite quickly.

Especially after more than 60 years, Counterfeit GMT Masters Ref. 6542 that still have the original bakelite bezel are very rare. What makes them even rarer is when the bezel is still in great shape and shows a very attractive discoloration like this GMT Master does. This is an unusual occurrence that watch collectors refer to as “tropical”.

Now there are tropical watches and Tropical watches. The one on this GMT-Master is clearly of the latter category, showing a beautiful, even discoloration of both the dial and the bezel in a deep terracotta hue. It goes into the direction of the Root Beer GMT Master; only this watch has more of a red tone in the dial. Unique is also that the half of the bezel that was originally red turned to the same color as the originally black dial! Discoloration like this is very rare, and although this reference by itself is already quite a challenge to find in such a remarkable good condition, the dial and bezel on this particular replica rolex gmt master make it a unique piece.

This is also exactly the reason why Rolex with tropical dials commands such premiums over the same model with a regular dial. They are rare, unique, and add an extra layer of character to an already charismatic watch.

Made entirely in Switzerland from the finest materials – and this takes us back to one of our previous article’s on What to look for in a luxury watch, with provenance at the top of the list – Rolex is a powerhouse of technological innovation and absolutely manic about precision. Every single watch that leaves Rolex’s impressive manufacture in Bienne is tested to standards that would make the movements of many mechanical watches go weak at the knees.

Rolex watches are not just certified as chronometers by the independent Swiss chronometer testing institute COSC, they are tested a second time by Rolex to earn the title of Superlative Chronometer. Every mechanical watch that leaves Rolex’s state-of-the-art manufacture is accurate to -2/+2 seconds a day, a tolerance rate that surpasses the already stringent standards of the independent COSC tests of -4/+6 seconds per day.

Beyond the impressive technological kudos of the brand, there is also the intangible, but very real, value of legacy. Rolex has infused such a strong identity into its watch designs that many of the foundation stones upon which this empire was built are still being manufactured today.

No story about Rolex watches can start without referring to the parent of just about every model, the iconic Oyster Perpetual watch. Popular with both sexes, this watch is the quintessential heart and soul of Rolex, and is a direct descendant of the 1926 Oyster, the world’s first waterproof watch, and Rolex’ Perpetual automatic or self-winding movement, developed in 1931.

The classic Oyster case, with its hermetically screwed-down caseback, offering water-resistance to 100 metres, is crafted from a solid block of 904L steel, a superior quality, high-performance stainless steel that is corrosion-resistant and less reactive than standard steel used in watchmaking.  Robust, sporty and a reliable companion for everyday life, there are now five different sizes – from 39mm all the way down to 26mm – with updated dials featuring various colours. Prices for the small 26mm model start at £325, while the largest watch in this family at 39mm costs £375.

The launch of the Replica Rolex Submariner in 1953, a professional dive watch capable of fathoming depths of 100 metres, opened the hatch on a new underwater world and became a vital part of the James Bond persona.

The great news for fans of this watch is that there is now a 40mm version in steel for £825.  For serious collectors or investors who are looking for an auction performer in the future, the £543 Daytona in platinum is the way to go.

The classic Rolex candidate for women is the Lady-Datejust. Measuring a feminine 26 or 28mm, the magnifying lens on the date window, as well as its robust Oyster case, which is water-resistant to 100 metres, are the salient traits of this family, and is presented in a great variety of models to suit all tastes. A steel 26mm Lady-Datejust model retails for £410, while a sparkling 28mm in Everose gold, with diamonds on the indices and bezel, will cost about ten times the price of the steel model.

In 1955, Rolex developed one of the brand’s most sought-after watches: the GMT-Master watch. Also known as the Pepsi watch because of its rotating blue and red bezel, the GMT-Master was specifically designed for Pan Am pilots, and allowed them to be able to consult the time, and day and night functions, in different places of the world at a glance. Re-edited in stainless steel, this 40mm model with a black dial retails for £560, although purists will be seduced by the white gold re-edition of the Pepsi rolex ladies watches replica, with a red and blue Cerachrom bezel, and a price tag of £256.
