Rolex GMT Master - Four references 1675 and two 16750 will be auctioned at "Watches of Knightsbridge" September the 12th

31 August 2015 | ROLEX , Auctions ,

After a brief period of silence, we are presenting you with a new post about an upcoming auction that is to be held at Watches of Knightsbridge Auctioneers in mid September. This auction, laconically called “Modern and Vintage timepieces”, will take place on 12th September 2015 and will showcase an incredible lot of 465 pieces, whose estimated value ranges from a few hundred pounds to a maximum of 80,000GBP. This is the perfect occasion for collectors of vintage pieces and for those addicted to modern watches to acquire new items at an affordable price (keep an eye open for the TAG Heuer Autavia). If you are looking for the perfect opportunity to strike a bargain and add one or more than one interesting wristwatch to your personal collection, this is your very chance to do so. I will definitely place a bit for an Alfred Dunhill with Jaeger-LeCoultre movement, a timepiece that I would like to own and pair with a City Fighter (whose hands on review is on this magazine), but keep in mind that, among all the wonderful timepieces on offer, there is also an amazing and rare series of four Rolex 1675 and two Rolex 16750 watches that will attract quite a lot of attention. Since the end of the 50s the 1675 reference has been produced in different versions for more than 20 years now and although none of the six watches that will go under the hammer in September is one of the very first Rolex 1675s ever released by the manufacturer (like the RolexCornino” for instance) they were produced between 1965 and 1988 and they feature interesting variations of dials and bezels, they are in excellent conditions and they have never been serviced before. Take a look at the paragraphs below, where you will find the original pictures (owned by Watches of Knightsbridge Auctioneers) and descriptions of these items as outlined in the official catalogue.
