Baselworld 2018, Rolex fans around the world were finally rewarded with a new steel Pepsi GMTGMT A GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) complication is a feature found in some watches that allows the wearer to track two time zones simultaneously. It typically includes a 24-hour hand and a bezel or a second hour hand that can be adjusted independently of the main hour hand to track the time in a different time zone. [Learn More]. What’s more, it came on a revolutionary jubilé bracelet. As for most modern Rolex steel sports watches, it came with the non-voluntary subscription to the infamous ‘waiting list’ from Rolex.
However, just going back a few decades in time, you’ll find that this release is not so much revolutionary but rather evolutionary, in good old Rolex tradition. The Pepsi Rolex GMT Master has been around for quite some time. And in this video we go hands-on with the Reference 1675. A lot of variations of this reference are in existence, should you be on the lookout for one, the key lesson here is to do your homework. Various dial variations were introduced, hands slightly tweaked, crownCrown The knob on the outside of the watch that you typically use to either wind the mainspring or set the time [Learn More] guards slightly evolved, all within the same reference 1675. So buyer beware. In this video we go hands-on with one such variation.
Sincere thanks to @Riva_Aquarama for loaning this vintage gem!
