First released in 1954, the Rolex GMT Master is without question one of Rolex’s most iconic models. It’s a study in form as well as functionality, with all of its features focused on one purpose: to make it a reliable and robust tool watch. The rotating bezel is bifurcated in red and blue (red to denote daytime hours, blue the night), and the bright red GMT hand is capped with a chunky triangular tip to allow the pilots for whom it was designed to read the time in two time zones at once.

The watch that we offer here is a Reference 1675. Launched in 1960 and produced for nearly two decades, the Reference 1675 is for many collectors what typifies a Rolex GMT. Dating from 1972, this one features a bezel that’s faded to a stunning patina.

Also of note is the dial, which also shows signs of the years that it’s seen. Housed in a 39mm stainless steel case (which has been polished sometime in the watch’s 50 years) beats the Calibre 1575, a movement known both for reliability as well as the elegance of its finishing. Tying it all together is a 20mm rivet bracelet made for Rolex by the American manufacturer C&I.
