The GMT Master was launched in 1954 as the reference 6542 featuring the Bakelite bezel. The following models had the reference 1675 in a gilt and matte version until 1978, most of these featured the Pepsi bezel. The present example is a stunning GMT with a originally black bezel insert and gives the watch a completely different look. Black inserts on GMTs are becoming more and more popular and coveted by collectors.
|Case||Excellent and thick case with very little wear for its age. The lugs remain crisp and are still showing the bevels|
|Bracelet / Strap||Excellent Jubilee bracelet with very little stretch for its age|
|Dial||Excellent matte dial with matching hands|
The GMT Master was launched in 1954 and designed in collaboration with Pan American Airways, with an extra 24h hour hand and bi-color bezel that allowed pilots to track two time zones across day and night. The GMT Master is characterised by an automatic movement and the iconic dual-colour bezel that represents each of the 24 hours in a day.
