  1. Small clarification: The Rolex GMT Master is nicknamed “Pepsi” because of the colour scheme, however, it was developed in conjunction with Pan-Am Airlines, not Pepsi.

    The watch was developed for Pilots/Flight Crew. It has an extra hour hand that corresponds to the hours marked on the bezel to show the time on one time zone, while the hour hand on the watches face shows another.

    Blue and red were chosen to visually represent night and day in a clear way in the low-light environment of the cockpit.

    The red half of the bezel represents daylight hours while the blue represents the night.

  2. Rolex has released a new version of the GMT Master. It features their new scratch resistant cerachrome bezel. The new ceramic bezel is extremely resistant to scratches and does not change colour over time. Red ceramic is a world first, unique to Rolex. Dual colour ceramic is also very rare so Rolex has released the watch in White Gold as opposed to Stainless Steel. The new GMT Master will retail at $41,000/=
