The Rolex GMT: A Love Story



Fratello found a great story on GMTs throughout history. Nice read.

The 6542 “Pussy Galore!” I didn’t know that it was called that then. Heck, I hadn’t even become a regular on any forums yet and didn’t really know much about no crown guards models or gilt vs. matte dials. But I did know that I really liked the look of the watch with that mini GMT hand and beautiful glossy “chocolate” dial. And that plastic bezel insert–Humina-humina…

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. it is awesome when someone goes out of their way to educate a general audience on a topic like watch lore.

    I am really interested in gaining an understanding of all the shades of pro/con for terms like ‘automatic’; ‘mechanical’; ‘self-winding’; ‘co-axial’; ‘ETA’; ‘swiss movement’ and other watch-vocab terms that directly relate to the fundamental anatomy of the watch.

    When I see a watch in a street vendor’s stall I want to know how to size it up and determine its quality.

    It’s odd but I have not yet caught any Rolex fever yet. They put me off.
