Matthew's Note

This is an incredible example of the Rolex GMT reference 6542 known as the Bakelite bezel from the 1960s. It was the first model GMT that was produced. This particular example is one of the best I have seen in a long time. The case, dial and bezel are minty. Typically the dials of these watches are badly aged or refinished but this example has a beautiful shinny original gilt dial. The case is very sharp with well defined lugs. Most importantly the bezel is in excellent condition which is also very difficult to find due to the fragile material of Bakelite. Typically these bezels are destroyed or replaced. If you are looking for and investment quality example of an early GMT then here it is.
