Here's my battered 1675. I thought it was from 1970 from the serial number in the early 30's, but by reading that 1971-72 models seem to have serials in the high 2M, I'm not so sure. The current dial was installed as a replacement in the mid '90s, after a motorcycle accident that shattered the (plexi)glass, and made a shiny spot on the matte black background @ 10-11 o'clock. The date characters have the metal background, funky 3s and 4s, and non-closing 6s and 9s.

Any comments on the year, and if the dial is age-appropriate?

Hello.

Ressurecting this thread.

I know the OP is from eight years ago, and by now the orignal reference pictures are gone, but are they visible aywhere else?

Help me identify dial 1977 1675 & authenticity

Hi I am a newbie to the forum, which I am finding very educational.

I have the opportunity to purchase a 1675 for the first time but am not sure of the authenticity of the watch being offered.

The watch is offered as SN 5mm, 1977 and sold by a retailer in 1981.

The watch comes with box and papers.

The hour, min and sec hands were replaced in 1998 by Rolex with tritium replacements.

It looks like a Mk4 dial to me?

Also will the replacement of the hands affect the value of the watch?

Thanks in advance

As far as I know, having the hands replaced will affect it's value. Let's wait for the experts to chime in.

Here is an updated thread I did a while back. I've updated a few inconsistencies - most notably the service dials and Mark V 1675 dials.

Anyone can feed more information about the elusive MK0 Dial?
Saw one sold recently on VRF.
I have seen and owned most of the 1675 GMT variant dials including the Service Replacement Dial with "SWISS" bottom. But MK0 information is very very scarce.
Anyone can help?
