Bought in March 2017 from a small town high street jeweller in UK. Decided I wanted the 16700 over the 16710 as it has quick set date. Only went to look as was top money (prices were rising fast), but when on my wrist this 29 year old watch felt brand new! This was due to a recent RSC service including bracelet overhaul. I had looked at a faded bezel pepsi as these look great in photos. However, when on the wrist I realised I prefer the deep colours of a new bezel.

It is one of the first made. A 1988 R serial. Has the 93150/501B diver bracelet (see post 1) and ‘open 6s’ date wheel, which I love.

My favourite watch:
lovely watch, mine is one of the later ones, my daughter's datejust has the open 6, looks great
16713 GMT Master II Bi-metal
79280P Tudor Prince Chrono Blue face
116520 Daytona White face
16700 GMT Master Pepsi Bezel

My 16700 Swiss only luminova dial with jubilee and 16710 Pepsi with oyster bracelet. Both are keeper in my opinion.
