Introducing the Rolex GMT Master model 1675 with the signature Blue & Red Bezel, fondly known as the "Pepsi" MK1, and featuring the Long E dial. This gem has garnered a reputation as one of the most desirable models in the watch world.

In 1955, Rolex unveiled their GMT watch, in an intriguing confluence with the year of my birth. It was designated as reference 6542, which signifies the first GMT-Master ever crafted and produced by the brand.

Over six decades have since passed, and interestingly, the original design bears a striking resemblance to the contemporary GMT-Master II. This speaks to the timeless elegance and enduring appeal of the GMT-Master's design, a testament to Rolex's consistency and commitment to excellence.

Among the myriad of Rolex references, the reference 1675 holds a unique place. It reigned in production from 1959 until 1980, a span that testifies to its popularity and long-standing appeal. This period makes it one of the longest-running Rolex references in existence, a noteworthy achievement in the world of luxury watches.

Throughout its production period, Rolex implemented several changes to the GMT-Master 1675. The most significant alteration, which also bears special mention, pertained to the dial of the timepiece. Earlier versions featured gilt dials while later models switched to matte dials.

The gilt dial models graced the wrists of watch enthusiasts from its inception in 1959 to around 1966-67. After this period, the matte dial variation took over, offering a new visual experience while retaining the masterful craftsmanship and superior functionality of the GMT-Master 1675.

In conclusion, the Rolex GMT Master model 1675 with its striking "Pepsi" MK1 bezel and Long E dial remains a standout piece in Rolex's illustrious history. With its beautiful evolution from gilt to matte dials during a production run spanning two decades, it undoubtedly establishes itself as a timepiece of significant desirability.
