That is a tough question for us GMT collectors. I would have to say a circa 1965 gilt dial GMT 1675.

I am also very found of the 16750's, the GMT 16700 and the GMT II 16760.

Ooo yes, gilt one from the 60's is a dream, a dream for me that will always be a dream!

For me, it's my Blancain Trilogy GMT. IMHO, the bezel gives is a classy and unique style that you don't see too often in GMTs from other brands and the strap is a nice calming contrast to the watch head. I've seen it before on the shiny metal bracelet and it was just too blingy for me, but on the strap I find it very well balanced.

My dad's 1675 1966-67, bought in Canada. It's been all over the globe. And now it's mine.

Gilt was a style of text colouring that Rolex used in the late 50s / early 60s.
A kind of golden text that really pops in the sunlight.

I struggle a bit to capture the gilt thing in pics of the 1675. Is a bit more obvious when it's parked next to a non-gilt 1675

Come on guys. Why are you making this so difficult? I've never wanted another watch since getting my Sub in 85. Then I recently opened a Pepsi only thread. And now this. Now, I'm starting to think about a vintage GMT. You guys are killing me.

Same here. Thought I was done with Rolex altogether, to stay with Tudor. But no!
