One of my favorite Rolex watches is the GMT-Master. With the introduction of the 116710LN and 116713LN models, I feel that the classic GMT-Master has been replica cartier Santos watches phased out by Rolex.
The new updated model with its bulky lugs and ceramic bezel surely is a nice timepiece and probably suits all modern requirements, but it cleary stands further away from the original 1954 model than its more recent predecessors (i.e. 16710, 16760, 16700).The first GMT-Master (ref.6542) was introduced in 1954, in the same year as Pan Am took the Boeing 707 in operation. Since the Boeing 707 was demanding the highest of Pan replica cartier Santos watches Ams pilots in terms of psychological well being. Pan Am thought that at least a time piece that could show them home time and the time at their arrival destination at the same time would be of great help to the pilots.The Rolex GMT-Master as the story goes was therefore invented by Pan Ams request in the early 1950s. This first model, without crown-guards, 38mm and with caliber 1065 is very rare these days. If you can find one, in original condition with the replica cartier Santos watches bakelite bezel, prepare to pay 20.000 Euro or more, depending on condition and whether it is complete with box and s or not.
