One of the first truly legendary Rolex sports watches, the GMT-Master was first created in the early 1950s in collaboration with now-defunct airline Pan AM, to provide pilots with a watch with a second time zone. In 1983, the already iconic watch was updated and renamed the GMT-Master II. The first GMT-Master II reference was the 16760, of which this watch is a fine example. The 16760 has an extra thick case and is notable for being the first Rolex GMT to feature the “Coke” bezel in red and black (the more common version was the blue and red “Pepsi” bezel), and the first to use the 3085 movement, which made the 24-hour hand independently adjustable.
