    The present watch is a fine example of an early GMT Master ref. 1675, featuring an appealing black lacquered dial and the pointed crown guards. Subsequently produced ref. 1675 models are fitted with the matte dial and show the rounded shoulders. For this reason, the present model is also known as the "Cornino" or "small horn" GMT Master.
