In the 1950s, the Pan American company requested a dual-time Rolex watch. As the first company to offer transatlantic flights from New York to Paris, equipping their pilots with a timepiece that could read two time zones simultaneously was of the utmost importance. The result was the GMT Master, which was initially equipped with a red and blue "Pepsi" bezel in Pan Am's signature colors. The ref. 16750 offers a similar features set, boasting a similar two-tone 24-hour bezel, a brushed stainless steel finish, and a supple Jubilee bracelet. This pre-owned Rolex was also responsible for introducing the line to the Quickset function and is available in either a matte or glossy dial. As an older reference, the ref. 16750 that is for sale here today presents the time via Tritium in a warm patina.
