Watch details

This model represents an important transitional example to GMT collectors, as it would have been among the last pieces of this version produced by Rolex before the GMT II became exclusively available. The ref. #16700 has a rapid set date feature, allowing the date to be adjusted without moving the 24 hour hand. Possessing a vintage aesthetic, with holes in the case and the classic metal bezel insert, yet also the robustness of a modern watch, the interest in such pieces is augmented with every amount of time passed since Rolex discontinued this handsome icon. This watch is noted for being in mint condition and boasts a handsome faded bezel. Original bracelet #78790 with #501B end pieces. 40 mm. Stock 37997
