The present reference 1675 is a highly rare and attractive example of the legendary model, distinguished by its excellent overall condition and the retailer's signature Tiffany & Co. printed in gold just above the GMT-Master designation.
The original dial impresses by its special applied luminous dot, baton and dagger numerals with stylish raised gold surround. This particular type of dial, regardless of its colour, is nicknamed "bicchierini" by Italian watch collectors, which translates as "small glasses". Over time, the luminous material of the hour markers has taken an attractive cream-coloured patina, beautifully harmonizing with the gilt printing of the signatures.
The cooperation between Tiffany & Co. and Rolex is longstanding, but extremely scarce. Examples signed by Tiffany, such as the present lot, are exceedingly rare, especially in this superb condition. Just a handful of GMT-Masters, all references, all materials but particularly in gold, retailed by Tiffany have appeared on the market over the past decade.
