About This Watch

Let's turn back the clock, figuratively speaking of course, or maybe not, so without further confusion, we will take a brief look at the history and origin of arguably one of the most famous watches available today, or not so available. Rolex's GMT Master 2, now I'm a firm believer that the best inventions or solutions are created because of the problems they fixed, and just like that, airline pilots were able to keep track of time as they flew over different time zones by using this unique tool on their wrist. So as decades passed since the 50's when Rolex first released this model, there have been obvious changes and upgrades referring to case size, bezel material, the movement and bracelet construction, but when it comes to nicknames for watches, no other watch in history can compete with the GMT Master. From Pussy Galore to The Fat Lady which turned into Coke, soon followed Pepsi and Root Beer aka Dirty Harry, which we have featured here, even Gotham's Batman makes an appearance, the thing is, nicknames matter, mention anyone of these names in the watch community, and there will be an instant affiliation. This specific 40mm, Root Beer model is crafted from Rolex Oyster Steel and Everose Gold, with 100m water resistance, COSC Certified Rolex Calibre 3285 is accurate to plus/minus 2 seconds a day and has 70 hour power reserve. GMT time zone function of course for its initial creation.
