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.
Robust & sought after
For a Rolex to retain its beauty and functionality in extreme conditions, Rolex uses its own stainless steel alloy - Oystersteel. It is particularly resistant to corrosion and distinguished by its special shine. Oystersteel belongs to the steel grade "Stainless Steel 904L" which is normally used in extreme areas such as the aerospace and chemical industries.
Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex is now the world's best-selling watch manufacturer. At a time when wristwatches were only worn by women as jewellery, Rolex established the history of the men's wristwatch by succeeding in building a wristwatch robust enough for everyday use. Today, Rolex is still the industry leader in the field of durable everyday watches and founded the concept of the Toolwatch. From the depths of the oceans to the heights of aviation, Rolex's professional models are valued by professionals and today enjoy exceptionally high collector's values.
