Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master 1675

Born out of a working partnership between Rolex and Pan American Airlines, The GMT-Master made its debut in 1954. In 1953 the company asked Rolex to develop a watch to display the time in two different time zones, the result was the GMT-Master, with its distinctive, triangle tipped, GMT hand.

The recently launched 6204 Submariner model was used as the basis for the new model. Featuring a black dial and cyclops date, a red extra hour hand which tracked the additional time zone was added to complete the face of the watch.

The look was made all the more iconic with the bezel option. The standard black steel bezel from the submariner was replaced with a transparent-acrylic-coated bezel which had twenty-four-hour markings printed on its underside. The choice of material was a practical choice, with the acrylic option being chosen as it was less prone to glare. The choice of colour for the bezel, however, was a purely stylistic decision.

The blue and red acrylic bezel represented the colours of Pan Am airlines and gave the GMT-Master a stunningly original look, and marked it out as a watch for the ages. This 1968 example shows a unique patina on the bezel, marking it out as one for the GMT enthusiast.
