GMT Serif Bezel Inserts

Postby springer » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:59 am

I was recently contacted regarding a request for my opinion concerning the bezel inserts for the GMT sapphire models which contain serifs on the numerals. These seriff inserts can be found on the mid-1990s GMT II 16710s from the mid to late 1990s.

In my opinion, for an insert to be considered a serif bezel insert, the serifs need to be significant in size and found on most of the numerals within the insert. Serifs are most commonly visible and found on the 1s, 2s and 4s as evidenced in the photos below.
