Well I'm SICK... I owned a 1675 for 25 years and had to sell it Christmas a year ago.

Why because I bought it when I learned to fly. No longer flying, but I still want a Pepsi!

Here's my circa '84 16750.
Had this one a long time.....

Always loved the Pepsi. Sets it apart from all the other sports watches in the Rolex line up.

1985 16750 transitional

I brought this GMT off Andrew Shear back in 2007 and wore it almost daily for the first few years but sorry to say I have gone off her lately so she rarely gets a look in these days, afraid the sub and the transitional speedie get all my attention at the moment

I got mine a few moths ago and it's seen ZERO wrist time. I have a "gala" event next month in NYC and I'll wear it there.

Some beauties here, thanks for sharing!

I am starting to seriously appreciate Pepsi GMTs, preferring vintage though. Initially I found them too colourful if you like but I might be wrong there.

Has anybody here ever regretted buying one?

I've owned my 1675 since 2009. I wear it a week or so out of the month. To me the Pepsi is the iconic Rolex.

-How long have you owned it...?

LESS THAN 48 HOURS! LOL

-How much time does it get in your rotation...?

It just slept with me last night.

-Why you own a Pepsi, not a coke or black bezel insert...?

Because it's a more interesting colour. All other rolexes have black on it's bezels. Blue and red is a non-existant colour in any other models.

Here is my 16710. It is a P serial that I have owned for 6+ years. I have all three inserts as well. Additional (crappy) pic of the same watch shown with a coke bezel & super jubilee.

The classic GMT Master is just a great watch for sure

Those are great! Our neighbor, a watch collector, came over to our Memorial Day BBQ today sporting a 1970s Pepsi dial that he recently purchased. It has the "open" six on the date wheel. It is a great looking watch.

Hi. Im new with the pepsi.

Just got a Z series model which was told a 2007 model. Still need guidance on the whole pepsi.
Bought it second with minor scratches that really show on the bracelet. Any idea on my next steps? Besides of course enjoying this watch.

Should I be bringing this to an AD? But the watch boutique told me not to get it serviced and Im not sure why. Thanks! Mine came without the box but with a certificate.

A 1969 build. Had mine since 1972. Its a classic Tiffany. It had a great reputation for reliability and as best mechanical watch in country. Got it to reward myself after my service in Vietnam. I wear it every day.

Here's another pic of mine on a new strap - 'Jürgens' handmade in Germany from German WWII grey leather flying jackets. Leather NATOs. I got two, so one for the 1680 RED SUB, too. I'm not usually too keen on leather straps for sports Rolex, but I love these straps - vintage leather, with some significant history/lineage, and the solid brushed ss hardware is superb, I think.
