Rolex GMT
One of Rolex's first major clients was undoubtedly Pan American World Airways, one of the largest airlines founded in 1926. It is in 1954, probably at the request of "PAN AM", that Rolex designed the GMT. It is a pilot's wristwatch which, thanks to an additional hand and a blue and red bi-directional bezel, allows an instant reading of a second time zone. A watchmaking complication essential to the advent of long-haul flights, and therefore an essential tool for travelers. Its most iconic version is undoubtedly the reference 1675, created in 1960 and produced for 31 years!
