This is a vintage 1979 stainless steel and 18K yellow gold Rolex GMT Master "Root Beer," reference 1675/3. It has a stainless steel and 18k yellow gold Jubilee bracelet with a foldover deployant clasp, and an acrylic crystal with a Cyclops magnification bubble over the date aperture window at 3 o'clock. It has an 18K yellow gold bi-directional rotating 24-hour GMT bezel with a gold and brown "Root Beer" insert, a solid screw-down case back, and a protected gold winding crown. The 40mm diameter solid three-body case, integral lugs, knurled bezel rim, and bracelet are polished/brushed. It has a brown dial with luminous "nipple" dot, baton, and triangular hour markers, luminous skeleton Mercedes hands, all with aged Tritium lume. There is a central hand with a luminous arrow tip for the second time zone, a center sweep seconds hand, and an outer minute/second division track. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters/330 feet and the 12mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

The mechanical automatic self-winding Rolex caliber 1570 movement is rhodium-plated, with a shock absorber mechanism. It's constructed with 26 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, and a self-compensating free-sprung Breguet balance spring. It includes a monometallic balance that's adjusted for temperature and 5 positions, and Microstella regulating screws.

This Rolex 1675/3 GMT Master "Root Beer," reference 1675/3, receives its nickname because the bezel is reminiscent of the A&W Root Beer chain colors.
