Since we can't get enough of the 'Root Beers', we present you another one. This time, however, with a 'Nipple Dial'. Why is it called like this? Because... Well, just have a look at the picture and you will get the point. This example dates back to 1986 and has a beautifully faded 'Root Beer Bezel'. People often mistakenly call a GMT-Master with a brown bezel a 'Root Beer' while only the models with a brown- and cream-coloured bezel are true 'Root Beers'. The stainless steel case, measuring 40 mm in diameter, and 18k yellow-gold bezel are in very good condition. The lugs are thick and the bevelled edges are sharp. The 18k yellow-gold and stainless steel Oyster bracelet is in fine condition. The watch is powered by the caliber 3075. So, it has the quickset-date function. The dial was available in black or brown and this one has a brown dial with 18k yellow-gold applied indices.It's also nicknamed 'The Clint Eastwood' because he loves and wears this watch too. Getting this piece will instantly make you a badass and give you the right to call anybody 'a punk', punk!
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.
