    Accompanied by Rolex green leather-covered presentation box.

    The present example of reference 1675 is characterized by its attractive "radial" dial, also known as "Asia" dial. These dials stand out by slightly longer minute markings and luminous dots nearer to the centre. It appears that reference 1675 was only fitted with such dials during a short period in the 1970s.
