The GMT Master is a perennial favourite at Bulang and Sons and this transitional GMT Master II is probably our favourite sapphire GMT. Featuring an independently setting 24hr hand and improved movement, the 16760 picked up where the 16570 left off. This example is in very nice condition with a rare ‘non-DATE’ dial which has taken on a gentle patina wich matches the hands beautifully. The case is much larger than earlier GMTs, hence the nickname Fat Lady; this fat lady still has a very strong case. The watch has been fully serviced over by our watchmaker
THE NEW ERA
In the early 80s Rolex began introducing the next generation of sports watches. These watches features new sapphire crystals and dial with lume-filled white gold hour plots. The new feature of the GMT Master II was an independently setting 24hr hand (a quick-set feature). This was a big development in the GMT Master story.
The nickname ‘Fat Lady’ is derived from the thick case that the 16760 is housed in. Not as thick as a Tudor Big Block, it is still noticeably thicker than its predecessors. An additional note of interest for this watch is the early dial variation, where the word ‘DATE’ is omitted from the upper dial text. Small, but important details…that’s why we love vintage Rolex!
