Rolex Vintage GMT-Master 1675 – “Root Beer”
The GMT Master was originally designed in collaboration with PanAm Airlines. Constructed with pilots in mind, the GMT allows one to quickly tell two different time zones simultaneously. This watch, with its brown and gold color scheme, is nicknamed the “Root Beer” or sometimes “Eye of the Tiger” based on its resemblance to the stone Tiger’s Eye. Its gorgeous coloring has caused this watch has become quite the collector’s piece. The model 1675 comes in stainless steel and yellow gold. This watch’s brown dial has raised gold “nipple” hour markers. The hour markers and hands have a stunningly uniform creamy patina. Clint Eastwood is well known to have worn a “Root Beer” GMT Master.
