GMT-Master II

Originally designed for pilots, the GMT-Master was the first dual time zone wristwatch, using its 24-hour hand and rotating bezel to show any second time zone you so desired. The modern GMT-Master II perfected the mechanism, allowing the 24-hour hand to be set independently from the 12-hour, in effect allowing three different time zones to be displayed at once.

The most famous of the various two-tone bezel variations is the ‘Pepsi Cola’, so-called for its blue / red day / night bezel. There are other versions of course – the red and black ‘Coke’, the brown and black ‘root beer’ and the blue and black ‘Batman’ are the most famous – and all modern bezels are made from incredibly hard Cerachrom inserts rather than the original’s brittle Bakelite. Finished with a Cyclops magnifier for the date, it’s the original jet-setting icon.
