An essential guide to collect and invest in Rolex GMT-Master
The GMT-Master, which was created to meet the needs of Pan American Airways to supply its pilots with a wristwatch able to indicate the time back home and the time in their arrival destination simultaneously, is one of the most widespread and sought after Rolex models throughout the world; this book wants to honour the passion and international interest in this watch.
After the great success of the first edition “Collecting Rolex GMT-MASTER wristwatches”, a second version published which also presents the models produced in recent years, in order to give the information which has become essential today for buying and selling GMT-Master watches and to improve the contents of the preceding edition.
Some of the questions a collector asks himself nowadays are:
– are the aluminium bezel inserts of the ref. 6542 coeval?
– Is there a way to know if the bezel has been replaced?
– the ref. 1675 in stainless steel has been created with the possibility to fit two bezels: red/blue and black?
Thanks to the in depth study, this edition helps to dispel these doubts.
Only in this book will it be possible to find the first models of the 50’s down to the most recent watches.
Special attention has been paid to the variations of the bezels, dials and cases – factors which today help determine the value of the watch.
“Collecting Rolex GMT-MASTER” is a specific volume about Rolex GMT – MASTER which includes timepieces from the first models of the 1950’s to the ones of the last period, including prototypes, military models, bracelets and all case and dial variants.

For each reference, a detailed sheet is reported, indicating the years of beginning and end of production, the calibre and all the characteristics of the watch (crystal, bezel, bracelet, case back, winding crown, case number with production year, dial, movement, …).
