Purchased in Chicago:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 16700

 

This Steel GMT Master is looking pretty good for a thirty two year old watch. Our client bought it secondhand in 2005, and while he’s enjoyed it for more than ten years, his friend told him it’s a pretty hot commodity right now. He came in saying he could use the money which is not something we often hear. He’d done his homework, but was still surprised by the ease and strength of our offer. “So if I say yes, what happens next?” “We write you a check.” “That’s easy.” Yes. That’s the point.

 
 


 

Purchased in Palm Beach:
Rolex GMT-Master Yellow Gold; 1675

 

To most, this 45 year old GMT is just a beat up has been. The crystal is scratched and the bezel shows significant wear and tear. The bracelet is badly scratched too, and while those can be polished, there is nothing that can be done to fix the dents and dings. Yet, there’s one significant saving grace; the Nipple dial. Rare enough by itself, it’s even more unusual to find an all gold model. Our client found us on the Web and came in after visiting others that claim to pay “the highest prices” or “2x more”. Those offers were pretty close, but we actually PAID nearly twice as much as the others. Knowing the subtleties and nuances in such a highly specialized market is what sets CIRCA apart. What’s on your wrist?

 
 


 

Purchased in Chicago:
Rolex GMT-Master Stainless Steel; 1675

 

“I was a first class flight attendant for PanAm from 1966 to 1979 and always admired the Rolexes our pilots would wear. I asked at corporate if there was a way I could enjoy the discounts the pilots got. While I was well paid, I wasn’t making Rolex money. Since then, My GMT had seen a lot of travel. But I put it away when I left the airline and haven’t worn it since.” Following his stint, our client spent the next 20 years as a math teacher before retiring. “I hear they’re collectible now, though mine has seen better days.” He was right about the first part, but not so much about the second. Better days for this super collectible GMT-Master lay ahead. The watch may have looked coach to him, but it was clearly first class. So was our offer, which took him by surprise. What can we say? We’re always happy when we can give an upgrade.

 
 


 

Purchased in New York:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 1675

 

This vintage reference 1675 GMT-Master is exactly what brings purpose to our everyday treasure hunt. The wear and tear are consistent with a 1963 model, but the patina on this dial makes it highly desirable for a serious collector. The blue and red bezel separating day hours from night closely resemble the colors of another popular brand, hence the pepsi bezel moniker. This watch had a lot to live. And CIRCA had a lot to give. Literally.

 
 


 

Purchased in Short Hills:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 6542

 

If you look carefully at this 6542 GMT-Master you’ll notice something missing. That’s because Rolex had introduced crown guards to later models – two pieces jutting from the case that could take the brunt of impact instead of the crown. No crown guards models are a bit rare and jarring when you’re not used to seeing them, so we got excited over this one. Unfortunately, our client had made sure to update his, with a new bezel and new insert. In other words, it was “serviced out” and the value had been greatly reduced – by Rolex! Our client had heard that his watch was a collector model, and couldn’t understand why other watch companies were offering so little, then we explained. “You’re still giving me well more than the other companies, and well more than I paid, so…”

 
 


 

Purchased in New York:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 1675

 

“I bought this about 20 years ago for one reason, I liked the red and blue bezel. But now I’m seeing articles about how the values of these things keep climbing. Sooner or later the bubbles gonna burst. I figured I’d find out what the deal is.” We can’t argue with that logic. His steel 1675 GMT-Master “Pepsi” is high on our Rolex buy list. So we made an offer that proved all those articles true, and he decided to let it go. We’ll let others write the articles, we’ll stick to writing checks.

 
 


 

Purchased in New York:
Rolex GMT-Master “Root Beer” Stainless Steel and Yellow Gold; 1675

 

While he sold us some jewelry he’d inherited a few years back, it wasn’t until coming across our Instagram page that it occurred to him we buy watches too. “I’ve literally been all over the city. Every so-called watch buyer has scoffed at it. Here, I thought the dial had character,” said our client. The steel and gold Rolex GMT-Master, 1675, was, certainly well worn, but not without character. Aside from having the rare nipple dial, it also had some rather interesting dial discoloration. We have collectors that like watches with patina and while everyone else objected to the blemishes, we are a bit flexible when pricing these rootbeer models. So we made an offer that was both tangy and syrupy. “Your offer makes the parting with it that much sweeter. Glad I had the good sense to come back.” They often do after a taste of our money.

 
 


 

Purchased in Madrid:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 16750

 

This early model 16750 Rolex Pepsi was sent in to us through our free insured mail-in program. Our Client simply filled out a form, received a shipping label and sent out the watch at no cost to him. When we received it our buyer reached out to him with an offer. “That’s a lot more than I paid for it… are you sure we’re talking about the same watch?” We laughed. “Your watch is in high demand, even in its current condition.” We can’t get enough of these stainless steel Rolex GMT’s. Our customers keep us in hot pursuit. “I guess we have a deal then.” he told us. I guess we do.

 
 


 

Purchased in New York:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 1675

 

Our client, a criminal law professor at John Jay, virtually had a curriculum when he came to visit us with this mid 60’s steel Rolex GMT-Master, ref. 1675. “I’ve shipped this to two different companies who gave grandiose statements pending a trial run. Both times, the actual verdicts were thousands less than the opening testimony.” While the Oyster bracelet had some wear, the case and dial were in great condition and the Pepsi bezel had developed a beautiful fuchsia patina. Our offer was also NOT what those other companies had suggested… it was a far better deal. The papers were drawn up, executed and a check was issued. “You were true professionals. I’ll be sure to refer friends and associates to you, I mean, why go anywhere else?” We agree. In fact, it would be a crime.

 
 


 

Purchased in Greenwich:
Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” Stainless Steel; 16750

 

Our client slid this mid 80’s reference 16750 Pepsi GMT-Master across the table. “I told my husband that I had an appointment to sell some of my jewelry, so he gave me his watch. He even told me what to expect in regard to your offer,” Never wanting to disappoint even absent clients, we put our best foot forward. We wrote down all our offers, starting with the Rolex. She looked over the offers, “But he’s getting so much more than I am.” We weren’t sure what to say at that point. “I’m just kidding, we’re splitting the money.” We hope so. This story’s going on Instagram.
