About this watch

I am often caught saying this watch looks so much better in the flesh and although I think these pictures are great this really is a watch that is amazing in the flesh and has great wrist presence.

The nick name for this colour combination came from the American soda using the same colours as the bezel on this version of the GMT whereas the dial become known as the nipple dial due to the solid gold hour markers which are very distinctive and give the watch an almost dress watch style

The serial number dates to 1979 so it could make an ideal 40th birthday gift for a loved one or a special treat for yourself.

The GMT Rolex has been seen on the wrist of many famous celebrities through the years and in films it has been seen in James Bond film worn by pussy galore in the 1960’s and perhaps more famously by Marlon Brando in Apocalypse now, and that very watch is due to be auctioned later this year.

This piece is by far the nicest I have seen for a long time, the case is crisp and has very clear engravings between the lugs and the dial in my opinion is the best available today. The watch is fitted on a simple calf skin strap which works very well.

To sum up a great watch to wear for any occasion and in my opinion a terrific investment.
