Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542 "Original Bakelite"

REF. 6542

Here we have a beautiful example of a 6542 acquired from the original owner. Having lived a charmed life for almost 60 years, this watch retains all its original attributes, including an uncracked bakelite bezel insert. The original gilt dial is showing some age, but has incredible strong and rich gold colored printing. With similar bezels alone bringing close to $30k, this is a great watch to have!

Rolex GMT- Master "Nipple Dial" in 18k

REF. 16758

The best of both worlds! With a vintage looking nipple dial but a more contemporary sapphire crystal, the 16758 is a great watch that bridges the divide between vintage and modern. Accompanied by its original oyster rivet band in 18k gold, this is a truly wonderful piece. The watch has recently been overhauled, and is keeping time.
