I'm definitely intrigued by a vintage GMT Pepsi, but this is all new to me. I'm doing a lot of research online, and I'm seeing that the only thing that's really feasible, in my price range, would be the GMT master of the late 1980s or early 1990s, the transitional model that seems to be able to be had in the $8,000 range.
My questions are about authenticity, what to look for in the vintage models in terms of original parts, replacement parts, weather box and papers are really necessary, and how to know if a watch has been significantly refinished.
I'm including some photos of one that looks like it's in gorgeous condition, but I have no idea if it's been completely refinished, has had a replacement bezel, replacement hands or dial, and I'm wondering what sucks you may have.
As far as value goes, do you feel that the current market for the GMT master of the late 1980s, the 16700, it's a good value to get into with what prices are doing on the Vintage Market?
