I have an excellent 16753, 2-tone gmt with black nipple dial. The dial is "glossy gone matte" and looks nice... But the matte black (or brown) on the 1675/3 looks way better.
I didn't think there were any matte dials for the 16753, but came across this article today. The watch is a 16753, but with a beautiful chocolate brown nipple dial. The dial is definitely for the 16753 as it doesn't have the solid gold coronet that the 1675/3 has.

I've been googling all morning but can't find any more 16753's with a matte dial.

So... Do the matte dials, black or brown, really exist for the 16753? Looks like they do, but are they super rare and impossible to find?
