Dear Friends,
I need your help regarding the following question:
Have transitional 16750 GMTs (matte dial) been equipped with a silver or a white date disc when they left the factory?
I did come across both several times and don't know what is right.
Look forward to your answers.
All the best for a fantastic year 2012!
Michael

My feeling is that all very late 70's and early 80's watches are the metallic white. JMHO
