Vintage Rolex GMT Master

The GMT Master was originally introduced by Rolex in the 1950's with model number 6542, this early model had no protective crown guards and bakelite bezel and has now become highly sought after by collectors

Rolex wristwatches are very popular pieces of jewellery, not only because of their classic good looks and reliable time keeping, but because Rolex manufactures different models for different types of people, including the GMT, which was specifically manufactured for wear by pilots and other aviating enthusiasts.  Rolex also produces watches designed to be worn for a variety of casual and/or formal occasions.  

The Rolex GMT displays the time of day in two different time zones so that aviators can determine the time in not only the place from which their flight originated, but also the destination to which they are going.  The Rolex GMT has an additional hour hand and rotating bezel on the face to enable this feature. 

Rather than introducing new models of watches, Rolex simply upgrades its current models, which quickly makes the older ones “vintage” and very valuable.  The GMT fits into this category since it is no longer being produced and was replaced with the GMT Master, which also includes the popular aviator features. 

The newer GMT Master watch has a larger case and winding crown and is easily distinguished from the GMT by its bracelet and larger markers, as well as the bright green 24-hour pointer. 

If you are a pilot or interested in aviation, you will surely enjoy owning a vintage Rolex GMT watch.  These very popular timepieces are often offered for resale and are a great choice for yourself or the aviator in your life.  The newer GMT Master is also very popular and will, undoubtedly, eventually become another vintage Rolex watch.
