This genuine vintage Rolex GMT 1675 complete tritium handset has the rarely seen 1960's gilt era flat hour hand. The patina on the seconds and minute hands match beautifully and have aged to a lovely golden butterscotch hue while the GMT hand has aged gracefully to warm buttermilk shade.The patina on the gilt era 1960's flat hour hand has darkened with age. There are no visible signs of missing or cracked lume and the hands emit a short-lived glow after being exposed to bright light. Having not been the original owner of these hands for the past 40 plus years I cannot say definitively whether or not they have been relumed at some point. But, looking closely at the texture of the lume, it's my humble opinion that these hands haven't been relumed.
Clearly they weren't born together on the same watch. For the non-purists, skilled watchmakers such as ABC Watchwerks, LA WatchWorks and Watchmakers International can expertly color match these hands to the patina of your dial. All pictures were taken in natural light and from various angles, so please study the 12 high magnification pictures carefully as they are part of the description and serve as an accurate representation of the condition of these hands.
