Description: The present GMT is a highly attractive and very rare example of a reference 1675 dating from 1960! It is distinguished by the rare and much sought after black gloss "underline dial" with gilt printing. The attentive observer will notice the small silvered line underneath the designation "Officially Certified", a feature exclusively found on some ROLEX GMT watches made in the early 1960s. Black gloss dials must be regarded as the ultimate art in dial manufacturing. The gilt writing and the minute markings are not printed on the black background but are underneath and shine through in negative relief and the silvered underline is superimposed and printed onto the black background.
