Super cool steel/gold GMT with a dial to die for. The case is in fine condition. Certainly already polished and worn, it still shows a great shape and spreads a lot of the vintage charm that we look for and love in these watches. Furthermore, as can be seen in the pictures, it also has a small quirk here and there, but overall the watch on the wrist is exactly as wonderful as it is currently presented. The heart of this watch is the GMT-Master Nipple dial. This is a tropical dial, or what I call LAVA dial. Originally made in matt brown, this dial had a crazy cool transformation over the decades. Due to slight color errors in production, a pattern of different shades of brown have been created, which makes this dial shine wonderfully. We made some macros especially for you so that you can immediately see the beauty of the dial. The built-in tritium hands may have been replaced once, as they are in excellent condition and a little lighter than the dial patina, but this does not bother at all. The bezel is still sharp and the inlay has, and I am particularly pleased about that, transformed an equally cool patina, so that the result is simply a top vintage look. In 2015, the watch has been tested by a Rolex concessionaire. The glas has been exchanged, the watch has been adjusted and a certificate of authenticity has been issued. Nice to have and another small bonus. This watch may have originally been delivered to the USA or South America. This tells us the alloy in 14 carat yellow gold instead of 18 carat as usual in Europe. The 62523H Jubilee bracelet (14k yellow gold) is in good condition. It shows the well-known usual stretch, but is still wonderfully wearable. This is the rare variant with the 50 mark on the bracelet, which can only be found on 20mm lugs. This tells us that it is not a modified bracelet from a Datejust, but was specially made for this watch. Oh, and with clasp code E10 for October 1980, it’s even the original bracelet to the watch.
Conclusion: You are looking for the extraordinary. You are looking for vintage charm. Then strike. Perfect for your wrist.
