GMT for Pilots
A key feature of the Rolex GMT-Master II Rootbeer is the two-tone bezel, and in particular, it has been distinguished by the Rolex Pepsi that is available in blue and red. The same feature can be found in the Rolex Submariner. The original GMT Master, which had the reference number 6542, was released in 1952 and was specifically meant to be used by professional pilots. It featured the two-tone bezel, which made it easy for pilots to distinguish between night and day with a quick glance.
Rolex Rootbeer in English, Tiger's Eye in German
In the 1960s, the Rootbeer GMT was released to the market. It was given the name 'root beer' because of its use in the USA and Canadian markets. The watch had the same brown bezel colour as root beer. The case and strap material are either bi-colour or solid gold. In Germany, the Rolex GMT Rootbeer is commonly referred to as the Tiger's Eye.
At the moment, you can get the original model of the Rolex Rootbeer GMT Master with both four- and five-digit references. You can also get the new edition of the Rolex Rootbeer GMT. This device was presented at Baselworld 2018 and featured a six-digit reference.
