Description

The history of the Rolex GMT-Master debuted with a collaboration with the now defunct Pan American Airways, the first model was released in 1954-1955 and given to the crew on the long-haul flights. The major feature was the second time zone (GMT) with dedicated hand giving time on the rotatable red & blue bezel that had a 24-hour display, hence the “Pepsi” nickname.
The model became quickly popular as a pilot’s watch and very recognisable among international world travellers.
Various upgrades and metal variations were released over the years such as bi-color, full gold but the most famous remain the steel versions nicknamed respectively; Coke due to its red/black bezel, model that is discontinued today, Pepsi for the red/blue bezel and Batman for the blue & black bezel model.

The present watch is the famous GMT Master II 116759SA in white gold with diamonds and blue sapphires, a white gold Oyster mono-block case is set with 76 brilliant-cut diamonds and the eye-catching rotating bezel set with 30 baguettes in sapphires and 29 in diamonds, set in a way that the stones are decorated to delimit the hour markers.
Black dial with the date window at 3 o’clock and indexes in gold with luminescent coating as well as the central hands of hours – minutes – seconds – GMT.
The self-winding movement has a power-reserve of 48-hours and is known to be one of the most efficient.
