FS: 1998 GMT 16700. Complete NOS set, Fully stickered

Post by springer »

FOR SALE:

Offered for sale from my personal collection is a GMT-MASTER 16700 in NOS (new-old-stock) unworn condition from 1998 which was the last year of production for the GMT 16700.

This 1998 GMT-MASTER 16700, serial number A61XXXX, is a complete set with the original warranty paper, hang tags and booklets. The watch has never been worn and has the original case sticker and bracelet sticker still attached to the watch. The warranty paper has the original owner's name and address and was originally sold in Anaheim Hills, CA, during March 2000. The original box has a dealer tag on it with the model number and listed price of $3300. The back of the warranty paper has the Rolex USA red letter code of RRCCC which indicates the watch was shipped from Rolex USA to the dealer in California on or about Jan. 19, 1999.

The watch is coded for a black bezel insert - both on the warranty paper and green hang tag. The original bracelet is the Oyster 78790 with all the original links, 501B end links and X8 ( August 1998) clasp code.

The dial is the luminova SWISS marked dial which replaced the tritium SWISS T<25 dials during 1998 and were used for a little over a year before they were replaced by the luminova SWISS MADE dials. Some collectors find these "SWISS" dials more collectible due to them being a one year production run.

During the 1990s, when original Rolex watches were sold at the authorized dealers, they did not contain full case stickers as they do now, but instead, had a green case back sticker with the model number typed on the tag along with a clear red-stripe protective sticker over the top of this green sticker. There was also a clear sticker with a red stripe found on the bracelet clasp. This was the extent of the stickers found on watches during the 1990s. This watch being offered for sale contains both of the original case/bracelet stickers.

For this listing, the bracelet was carefully removed from the 6 o'clock side of the case to obtain a photo of the serial number. Once the serial number was photographed the lugs were appropriately taped up to protect them from being scratched and the bracelet was reattached to the watch.

This watch is being offered from my personal collection and is being sold "as is." This is a great opportunity for someone looking to purchase an outstanding example of the GMT 16700 from its last year of production and in original NOS (new old stock) condition.

PRICE:


$26,000 plus shipping and wire fee.

WARRANTY:

There is no warranty and the watch is being sold "as is."

SHIPPING/RETURNS:

For security purposes to help prevent theft or loss of the package, delivery of the watch will be by FedEx overnight delivery to a FedEx owned and operated facility. If delivery of the package to a FedEx facility is not possible, the package may be delivered to a place of employment or a single family residence except for apartments, condos or townhouses.

Full insurance for the purchase price of the watch will be with Inforsure and commence once the package is dropped-off at FedEx and end once the package is delivered. Inforsure is responsible for investigating and monetary reimbursement regarding a claim for the buyer concerning stolen, lost, improperly delivered or damage to the package contents.

Hello Springer . I´m confused about clasp date here , In sites like Oysterworld.de , Watch-collector.co.uk , and Bobswatches.com , says that the clasp code "x" belongs to 1999 year of manufacture . But in this post you say 1998 , and also that according to Rolex USA red letter code of RRCCC , the watch was shipped to dealer in january 1999 .
In your opinion what could be wrong here .
Congrats for all your beautiful GMT´s .
