Matthew's Note

This is a beautiful Rolex GMT reference 1675 from the early 1960s with a beautiful chocolate color dial and faded bezel insert. The case has the pointy crown guards which are highly collectible. Comes with the timing certificate.

The GMT-Master was developed to meet the specific needs of airline pilots. It became the official watch of several airlines, among them the famous Pan American World Airways, better known as Pan Am. Its most distinguishing visual feature was the two-tone bezel which marked daytime from nighttime hours.


As intercontinental travel developed in the 1950s, airliners began to fly swiftly across several successive time zones. For the first time it became important to know the time in various places in the world, simultaneously. It was the dawn of the jet age, and Rolex responded with a watch to match the spirit of the times.
