Cool, thanks for posting this, if we only had a time machine..

I'd buy the 1675 GMT-Master with gold bracelet! :)

It would have been a great investment. $100 in 1969 would be worth about $700 in today's dollars. $100 invested in the s and p 500 in 1969 would approx $8900 today.

This is fascinating! Thanks for the share.

I comment on someone's recent "Are newbies too OCD?" thread. I was basically saying how you can't compare the mentality to old school Rolex owners. Several reasons why of course, but for one thing look at the pricing!!!!

While I understand these weren't exactly "cheap" back then, the modern day pricing is way way higher, even with inflation.

The GMT was more expensive than the Daytona.

The 'good old days'. Long before Rolexes became somewhat of an anal-retentive hobby/pastime (for some).

Have heard it said that it probably is more expensive today relatively speaking!

Quite normal, the 1675 being automatic and chronometer certified...
