Conceived at the behest of the Airline Pan-Am, the GMT master and its successor the GMT II captured the attention of collectors and watch enthusiasts the world over, from its inception. Designed with a dual time zone feature, a pilot is able to read the correct time in two different time-zones without having to change or manipulate anything on the watch, thus keeping both of his hands available to fly the plane safely.
This “upscale” version is available in an 18k solid gold case and 18k gold jubilee bracelet. This is the only professional series watch Rolex has ever offered on it jubilee bracelet. This newer bracelet does exhibit minor stretching, but what a fantastic way to have a unique looking watch!
The exquisite dial is far from hum-drum also, sporting a luscious, clean, brown (commonly referred to as the “root beer”) dial, its hour markers have the distinctive nipple shape with the center set luminous material. The dial and handset match beautifully with a light patina, though the GMT hand luminous material does have a slight crack. Another rare distinction is the genuine all-brown bezel insert, the root beer dials are usually shipped from the factory with the distinctive bi-color yellow and brown version. Showing slight signs of fading, this bezel truly sets this timepiece off as a gorgeous vintage timepiece.
The case has been polished recently and is in beautiful condition. The 1575 movement has recently been overhauled and is timing very well.
