Rolex GMT MASTER 6542. THE census.

 By: amanico : December 23rd, 2020-00:59
The GMT MASTER 6542 is a relatively rare watch. How many were produced, it is hard to say, but if you keep in mind that, according to Rolex is a document dated from December 1959, only 605 of them were imported in the US, we can reasonably guess that for ...  

What to say?

Tremendous work and passion for the GMTM! And the icing is you have in possession one of the not many thats still around. A friend took a pix of this at Cacciari Salvati, a jeweller in Italy, 2018. ...
