The 16750 is what Rolex collectors know today as a transition model. The early versions had a matte dial, like Reference 1675. However, after a few years, Rolex transitioned to a glossy dial with white gold frames on the hour markers. This was the same type of dial that was transferred to later references of the GMT-Master II.

Smart collectors were drawn to Reference 16750 because it was practically identical to the classic 1675 on the outside, but featured a more modern and improved movement inside. In an effort to keep up with the competition, Rolex introduced new movements in the 1970s with higher beat frequencies and quick change dates. With the updated Caliber 3075 movement, the 16750 had a higher beat frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (now the modern standard), and the quick set date was a welcome convenience as it provides practicality to the watch.

With a short production run (only eight years) and its own cult following, Reference 16750 deserves to be considered a classic in its own right, and not just as a more affordable alternative to the 1675.

This watch has an unbeatable aesthetic thanks to the service performed by Rolex in 2018. Its beautiful lacquered dial carries its own personality in all the thin cracks that form a pleasant and interesting pattern, a condition better known as Spider Dial that is only appreciable under certain angles and lighting.
