ROLEX GMT MASTER REF.1675 watch. Steel case, 40mm diameter. Red and blue “pepsi” bi-directional bezel. Black “Long E” dial. Date window at 3:00.
PAN AM was the world’s first airline to order watches from Rolex to equip pilots with the ability to read a second time zone, essential for intercontinental flights.
In 1954, Rolex offers its GMT Master to its most important customer.
The watch was immediately appreciated by flight crews and the general public alike – at last, a watch for frequent travelers.
Its additional hand and 24-hour rotating bezel allow the wearer to read off a second time zone.
A long-awaited complication that Rolex has mastered with great skill and expertise.
Rolex watches are robust, legible and precise.
The most popular model on offer is the GMT Master 1675. It’s a 40mm-diameter round steel case with screw-down crown and caseback. Topped by a rare and magnificent red and blue “Pepsi” bezel with 24-hour graduation. Black dial with luminescent hour markers. Mercedes hands and central second hand. Date window at 3 o’clock. The movement is mechanical, self-winding and chronometer-certified.
A magnificent example of the brand’s commitment to aviation history.
A vintage to collect as a priority.
