Keeping with the trend of soda nicknames for Rolex’s multi-time zone pilots’ watches, GMT-Master and GMT-Master II watches fitted with brown dials and brown and gold bezel inserts have earned the nickname "Root Beer GMTs" by many members of the Rolex collecting community. These watches are made from solid 18-karat gold, or a combination of both stainless steel and gold, and are fitted with bezel inserts that are half gold and half brown, or all brown with gold-colored text on them. The "Root Beer" nickname has its origins in the watch’s resemblance to a frothy glass of root beer; however much like the "Coke" nickname, it primarily arose as a response to the pre-existing "Pepsi" nickname that collectors were already using to describe the red and blue version of Rolex’s multi-time zone pilots’ watch.
