A 'Pepsi' on its best. A stainless steel case, Oyster bracelet and a razor sharp red and blue bezel insert. This is exactly how we like to see it.This watch is provided with a 'Swiss only' dial which were only produced in 1999 when Rolex switched from tritium to Luminova. The dial looks spot on and matches the '99 'A-serial'. The watch measures a case size of 40 millimeter and houses the quick-set caliber 3175.The watch's case is in sharp condition and the bracelet (with some minor stretch) is stamped 1999. To make it even better, this piece comes as a Full Set, so including the inner box, outer box, booklets, papers and service papers. 

Introduction

Rolex GMT-MasterFasten your seatbelts for the story of the Rolex GMT-Master. Aviation company Pan-Am requested Rolex to create a wristwatch that would display multiple time-zones simultaneously, as their flights got longer; crossing multiple time-zones. Rolex came up with the GMT-Master (‘GMT’ stands for ‘Greenwich Mean Time’) in 1954. The watch features a date-function and an extra hour hand (with triangle) that points out the second time zone on the bi-directional turning, 24hour bezel.Still linked to aviation and although meant for professional use, it enjoys a much wider fan base ever since it first saw light. Over the years it underwent some changes and there are so many wonderful variations of this all-time Rolex classic. Some GMT’s are great as a single purchase, others are a wonderful addition to any collection and some of them can be considered as the crowning glory.
