The Pilot's Watch
The Rolex GMT Master was developed in collaboration with Pan American Airways, as in the 1940s and 50s, the flight distances were getting bigger and the pilots had to travel through multiple time zones. Pilots used the extra pointer to display the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) on the Lynette, which led to the name Rolex GMT Master. Although Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) was replaced by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in the aviation industry in 1972, the term GMT is still known and used in the name of the GMT Master.
The Oyster case is a milestone in the history of watchmaking. Invented by Rolex in 1926, it was the world's first waterproof watch case. Bezel, caseback and winding crown are screwed watertight to the middle section. Form and function are perfectly matched - typically Rolex.
The robust legend
Introduced at the end of the 1930s, the metal bracelet is particularly robust and still the most popular bracelet from Rolex. It belongs to the standard equipment of all professional (sport) models, but is also used in some classic models.
