First launched in 1955 and originally designed for professional use by airline pilots, the GMT-Master became a huge hit with travellers. Showing two time zones simultaneously was of great benefit to those travelling across continents and time zones. GMT, of course, stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which marks solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London - the original meridian used for calculating longitude and determining different time zones around the world. The ceramic bezel on the GMT-Master II is quite a work of art - the two colours combination is on a single piece ceramic component, which was a world first for Rolex. And did you know it takes 40 hours to produce each two-colour Cerachrom bezel!
Geoff's comment: Rolex GMT-Master II "Pepsi", "Batman" and "Root Beer" are just impossible to get from an authorised dealer. I have been trying for years. All three watches are highly desirable, but for me, the "Root Beer" stands out from the others. The brown, black, steel and 18ct rose gold colours are simply striking. You really have to see this watch to fully appreciate its beauty. Buy a "Pepsi" and people will comment "cool, you have a Pepsi". Buy a "Root Beer" and you are more likely to hear "holy smokes, you have a Root Beer. I've never ever seen one. Let me see it close up". We have for sale a brand new, unworn Root Beer, which comes with the 5-year Rolex warranty from December 19.
