The GMT-Master fake watch is one of the brand’s most iconic watches as a part of the Rolex catalog for two decades. Apart from its instantly recognizable appearance, the GMT-Master seems so special for its real-world practicality for travelers. Let’s take a look at the following details.
In an age of smart mobile-phones, laptops, and tablets, maybe you don’t see the need for a vintage GMT-Master replica watch to keep track the time while jetting across the skies, but I beg to differ. With some turns of the winding crown and a couple clicks of the bezel, this is one stylish companion you want onboard.
Rolex modified the GMT-Master watch a lot during its production run since it was made from 1959 until 1980. This unique example of the GMT-Master 1675 is an early model as illustrated by its pointed crown guards, small triangle on the tip of the GMT-hand, and glossy gilt dial.
Before heading to the airport, I grab my trusty GMT-Master watch from my watch box, wind it up a bit to get it going, and get ready to set my current local time and date. Since this is a GMT-Master and not a GMT-Master II, the extra 24-hour hand turns along with the main hour hand. Besides, the GMT-Master 1675 has a non-quickset movement, so the date needs to be adjusted by turning the hands.
First of all, I ensure that the inverted triangle on the bezel is positioned at the top of the watch. It’s currently 10 am here in LA, so after I get the accurate date in the window by turning the hands accordingly, I set my center hands to show 10 o’clock, also ensuring that the GMT-hand is pointing to “10” on the red portion of the bezel.
Now, I turn the bezel so that the GMT-hand points to just after “23” on the bezel and just like that I can see that local time is 7:30 am and my home time is 11:30 pm. Therefore, I move my center hands forward to display 7:30 am and the GMT-hand is now pointing to just after “7” on the bezel. Not bad for a watch made over five decades ago!
Please do remember when you travel to a different country, consider wearing Rolex GMT-Master cheap replica watches and keep in mind how well this vintage beauty performs in today’s high-tech world.
