Description

The watch presented here is an early model 1675/3. More commonly known as a two-tone 1675 the 3 at the end is the internal code used at Rolex to identify gold and steel watches. Produced from 1959 to 1980 it is one of their longest running product lines, and one of their most successful at that, with this particular model being from 1978.

The highlight of this piece is the nipple dial, a feature that was exclusively available on gold and two-tone models. Called so because it evokes pleasant images in the minds of men, it refers to the speciality that the lume isn't just painted straight on the dial but instead filled into golden indices which have become iconic for their sharp and exaggerated design. No longer manufactured today, the nipple dial marks an interesting stepping stone for the History of Rolex. Sacrificing visibility through the smaller effective area of the lume in exchange for some bling shows the beginning of the transition to the luxury brand that we know today.

This watch has had all service parts replaced meaning it sports a new dial, hands, and bezel insert. The two-tone Jubilee bracelet is a reference H14 which points out it was probably changed sometime in the 1980s. The result is a ready for wear package where all the restoration work has already been done. With no lume mismatches to spoil the party, this watch brings back the 70s in a way which lets you forget they have already been gone for over half a century.

To sum up, this Rolex 1675/3 offers a tasty ticket into the world of Vintage Rolex without breaking the bank. With the surge in Submariner prices and the recent explosion in value for Pepsi GMTs two-tone pieces have been relative bargains for some time now. Alongside the changes in fashion and the new trend for Gold, this has to be one of the safest vintage Rolex to buy for those looking for a stable store of value that they can wear on the wrist.
