Dive deep into the essence of luxury, precision, and storied history with the Rolex GMT-Master 1675, affectionately known as the “Pepsi” for its iconic blue and red bezel. This exquisite timepiece is a testament to Rolex’s pioneering spirit in watchmaking and its historic collaboration with Pan-Am Airlines, marking a revolution in the world of aviation and international travel.

Key Features:

Iconic Bi-Color Bezel: The red-back “Pepsi” bezel, with its vivid blue and red aluminum insert, is not just visually striking but also serves a practical purpose. It allows for the tracking of two time zones, a feature developed in collaboration with Pan-Am for its pilots navigating through multiple time zones.

Movement and Precision: Powered by Rolex’s Caliber 1575, a self-winding mechanical movement renowned for its reliability and precision. This caliber features a date function and a GMT complication, enabling the wearer to set a second time zone with the additional 24-hour hand.

Construction and Durability: The case measures 40mm in diameter, crafted from high-quality stainless steel, ensuring robustness and resistance to the elements. The watch is fitted with an acrylic crystal, offering durability and a vintage appeal. The serial and reference number are very clear between the lugs.

Dial Details: The MK2 dial features a charming patina with aged lumed indices. The GMT hand, with its distinctive arrow tip, is designed for easy reading of the second time zone on the 24-hour graduated bezel.

Bracelet: Comes equipped with a Rolex US riveted bracelet stamped 1-73.

Vintage Charm & Pan-Am Legacy: This model dates back to the era of the 1950s and 60s, a period when Rolex and Pan-Am Airlines collaborated to design a timepiece that met the needs of international pilots, making it an integral part of aviation history.

History & Pan-Am Connection: Originally introduced in 1954, the GMT-Master was created for Pan-Am’s crew, symbolizing a new era in commercial aviation. This collaboration highlighted the growing need for a watch that could track multiple time zones, essential for pilots and international travelers alike.

This Rolex GMT-Master 1675 “Pepsi” is not just a timepiece; it’s a piece of horological and aviation history. Its technical prowess, coupled with its storied past, makes it a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts seeking to own a symbol of pioneering exploration and timeless elegance.
