1966 Rolex GMT Master With Gilt Dial


This Rolex GMT Master gilt dial was owned previously by a crop-duster pilot. He purchased this watch new in 1966. The gentleman who sold it to me received the watch upon the pilot’s death. This watch and original owner both survived a plane crash. The pilot carried on with life wearing this GMT (daily) lovingly through multiple decades. The gilt dial is mesmerizing to gaze upon – stardust droplets juxtaposed to the midnight deep black. The original lume is deep-vanilla and all matching. The 24-hour hand was replaced at some time, as it is not the small version – still perfectly matching. The case shows history, as this watch was worn daily for over 50 years. The fuscia and original blue bezel is beautiful and valuable. The automatic Rolex movement sparkles and is accurate. What else can I say? The pictures speak volumes.
