THIS JEWELRY’S STORY
A Rolex for all Globe-Trotting Travelers
The Rolex GMT-Master was originally designed for Pan-Am and professional travel use. It's combination of differing time zone functionality and stylish beauty made this a sought after watch by a much wider traveling base. The functional ability to display different time zones and the rugged and refined appearance make the GMT-Master suitable in both travel and any occasion. In addition to conventional hour, minute and second hands, it features an arrow-tipped hand, which circles the dial once every 24 hours, as well as a bidirectional rotatable 24-hour graduated bezel. The distinctly colored 24-hour hand displays the "home" reference time in a first time zone which can be read on the graduations on the bezel. The traveller's local time is easily set by "jumping" from hour to hour. The hour hand can be adjusted forwards for backwards independently of the minute and second hands. This allows travelers to adapt to their new time zone without affecting the precision of their timekeeping.
