1955. It was at Basel World in 1955 that the Rolex GMT Master 6542, also known as the “pussy galore”, was introduced and one of the most iconic watches in Rolex history was born. In production from 1955-1959 the GMT Master featured a modified 6202 turn-o-graph, a rotating Bakelite bezel, additional hour hand and a calendar disc. This Bakelite bezel was filled with luminous material inside the number markings on the bezel insert, theory behind the Bakelite insert was thought to have reduced the amount of reflection and thus being less of a distraction to pilots. Since the Bakelite bezel insert was prone to cracking Rolex started replacing these inserts in 1957 with a metal version. It is for this reason and the fact that many have cracked or broken over the years that has made the original insert very rare and extremely hard to find. It is not uncommon to see the insert alone selling for over $15k USD. This model is arguably the most valuable of all GMT Master Series watches, with its notorious no crown guard, gilt gloss dial and aged markers this is by far one of the most sought after models by collectors all over the world. #rolex6542 #vrf #vintagerolexforum
