1965 Rolex GMT-Master

1965 Official Timepiece

of PAN AM Airways

 

The relationship between Rolex and Pam Am is well-documented. A partnership born from the need to help pilots combat jet lag. My guess is very few captains of today don Rolex GMTs in the cockpit. However I'm fairly confident the timezone tracking function is still used by many travelers (at least the watch-crazed passengers). 

 

Why it's special... Besides the double branding (which we all love right?) a Rolex aficionado will eat up the double wristing going on, so to speak. Look closely... Navigator Lorenz is wearing a reference 6542 with bakelite bezel, but the model featured is an early 1675. Pretty cool.  

 

Dimensions: 8" x 10 3/4"  (20.5cm x 27.2cm)
