  • AVAILABLE TODAY ! BLUE DIAL, white gold “PEPSI” GMT-Master ! Magnificent 18ct white gold Rolex GMT-Master II model 116719 BLRO (an acronym for BLeu / ROuge, the French for Blue / Red). Comes on Oysterlock 78209 bracelet with the desirable DARK BLUE dial * and red / blue “Pepsi” ceramic bezel insert. In beautiful condition, having spent much of its life in our pawnbroking safes. Has Rolex boxes, GMT-Master II booklet and green swing-tag. The watch also came with what appears to be a warranty card from Sao Paulo dated January 2020, but some unusual features make us doubt the card’s authenticity and it is included with the sale only on that compromised basis. We do include with the watch a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. A NEW equivalent is now £35,600 — but often very hard to obtain !

    * Earlier examples of this model came with a black dial, but when a stainless steel “Pepsi” was released it looked too similar. For those in the know, the blue dial (introduced around 2018) ensures your white gold GMT won’t be mistaken as a “mere” stainless steel model !

    We cannot accept cash for items of such high value. Please ask for one of our watch specialists if you would like to view the watch in our private / secure sales facility or to enquire about acceptable payment methods. 606073-716273

  • Vintage Rolex GMT-Master with original Mark 5B dial *, so-called PEPSI bezel and in outstanding condition, still in Rolex UK service stickers! Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master model 1675 from around 1978 with 557xxxx case number. It was most recently serviced by Rolex UK in February 2017 and was then bought by S.S.Milton Ltd in Chester later that year. Still in its striped service stickers, it has lived thereafter unworn in our safes. Extensive service history may be viewed in our photo-essay (see link below). The Oyster 78360 bracelet with 580 end-links has an “O1” clasp code, suggesting that is an early 1990 replacement part. It has a Rolex 1575 calibre movement, the bridge marked 1570 as normal, its unique movement number D724674 shown in the photo-essay linked below. The movement is running well, testing close to spot on for time-keeping in July 2023, although this will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its case, crown and glass are in excellent condition, the case numbering is crisp and clear, the bezel insert is excellent and the bezel rim is very good, if evenly worn. The bracelet shows some signs of age and wear, but this generation of Oysters was substantial and it has many years of reasonable wear left. The watch appears to have had little wear following the 2017 service by Rolex UK and since we bought it in September 2017 has simply sat in one of the Miltons’ safes! Comes with its original “sea-horse” Rolex box set (ref 10 001) with “50 YEARS OF THE ROLEX OYSTER” plaque, GMT-Master “clouds” booklet (itself rare and worth hundreds of pounds!), Rolex service slips from 2009 and 2017, further service paperwork from the Rolex main agent, Goldsmiths and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here.  Look at that beautiful, original dial with matching hands! Many more macro images may be viewed by clicking that link. Please note that while we have successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, we would advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered. Many collectors of such vintage Rolex where the dial is a key part of the value wisely choose NOT to swim in them, as a simple mistake in securing the crown or any subsequent and unrecognised deterioration in sealing could see water enter the case, damage the dial and destroy significant value. If you want to fly your ‘plane in it of course, go right ahead !

    * We write more about the classification of Rolex 1675 dials and provide a link to a superb website on the subject in the separate photo-essay which is available by clicking on the gold text above.

    We cannot accept cash for items of such high value. Please ask for one of our watch specialists if you would like to view the watch in our private / secure sales facility or to enquire about acceptable payment methods.

  • Expected in Chester early May : Extraordinary opportunity to buy an UNWORN example of this discontinued model from 2008, still in delivery stickers!

  • GENUINE ROLEX service / storage / travel pouch with folding press-stud flap and simple green watch-holder insert. Each is approx 12cm x 6.5cm when closed and is suitable for holding a single example of most models in the Rolex range. For a number of years these green pouches were provided by the service division of Rolex UK when they returned a watch to its owner. Many owners now use them as smart travel or storage pouches. They are pre-owned, but many have simply been in our stores since they came with a watch from Rolex. The price quoted is for a single pouch and we anticipate having a small number available from which clients may choose. A couple of additional, illustrative images are provided if you click through the main picture. Available from Miltons in Chester and Liverpool (St. John’s).

  • Bicolour Rolex GMT-Master II model 16713 “RootBeer” with bronze-colour dial on Oysterlock 78793A bracelet. Manufactured around 2002, it is one of the last “pierced lug” models — but which correctly bears the upgraded, solid end-link bracelet. A genuine “new old stock” bezel insert originally supplied by Rolex UK has been fitted. The watch is in very pleasing condition but with some wear to the bracelet and crown. Comes with Rolex boxes, GMT-Master booklet, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. The nearest NEW equivalent is now £14,300 but in recent years the earlier “Root-beer” has had a market of its own.
