Note:

another example of a Rolex watch with an inexplicable peculiarity. As already

seen in other models such as the Submariner ref. 5512, Date Just 1601/8 and

Daytona ref. 6239 The mystery of the inverted freshmen recurs even in this

GMT.I found very few models of Rolex Up Side Down, produced from 1962 

to 1969.

Note:

un altro esempio di orologio Rolex con un'inspiegabile particolarità. 

Come già visto in altri modelli quali Submariner ref. 5512 , Date Just 1601/8 e 

Daytona ref. 6239 il mistero delle matricole invertite si ripresenta anche in questo 

GMT. L'arco temporale degli Up Side Down è stato da me riscontrato solo su 

pochissimi esemplari prodotti dal 1962 al 1969.

THE GMT-MASTER 1955

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.

THE FIRST TRANSCONTINENTAL FLIGHTS

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.
