Watch details

Noted for its pointy crown guard case, mint gilt track ring dial and mini 24-hour hand, this GMT is accompanied by Rolex service papers, offering an unquestionable guarantee of authenticity. The insert and Oyster bracelet (#78360) are later and not original to the watch, however the more substantial modern bracelet lends itself well to daily wear. 40mm We are not selling this watch as unpolished and it is not accompanied by any accessories.

THE GMT-MASTERĀ 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.
