Breathtaking example of steel Rolex GMT ref. 6542, manufactured in 1960.
The present watch is preserved in extraordinary original condition. Amazing black lacquer dial featuring gilt printing. The lumes have aged in a warm ivory tone. The Bakelite bezel remains in superb condition.
Launched in 1955, reference 6542 represents the very first GMT-Master: it was featuring no crown guards, a Bakelite bezel insert and a fourth hand, which allowed pilots to calculate a second time-zone.
