Rolex GMT Master Pepsi Bezel Insert, Circa: 1997, Reference: 16700, Just back from Service by Rolex Service Centre Melbourne

*final purchase in AUD($)

In 1988 Rolex unveiled a new version of the GMT-Master with the ref. 16700 just one year prior to their new GMT Master II ref. 16710. This was the last version of the GMT Master model also offer the quick set date not seen on the GMT Master II.

The main difference between the GMT-Master and the GMT-Master II was the automatic mechanical movement within. Powering the GMT Master ref. 16700 was the Caliber 3175 where the two hour hands were not independent. Since the center hour hand and the 24-hand were linked, this meant that the GMT-Master could only indicate two time zones rather than the three time zones the GMT-Master II could display.
