    Hodinkee even spotlighted the Timex Q quartz GMT people went crazy for last year.
    That modern Rolex GMT Master 2 looks blue and red raspberry. Especially the red.
    I always liked the Rolex Submariner, but the Rolex GMT is more interactive and more colorful.

    This is where it all starts. The reference 6542 is the first GMT-Master ever made, a tool watch to aid in the work of commercial pilots. More than 60 years later, its design is strikingly similar to that of the modern Pepsi-bezeled GMT-Master II. As with so much that Rolex has done, one can see how the GMT-Master's design, with its clever bisection of the day into daytime and nighttime and its 24-hour hand, has influenced watchmakers through the years and helped to create a category unto itself. Many will recall that this watch was famously worn by Honor Blackman when she portrayed Pussy Galore in the James Bond film Goldfinger.
    WHO-T---F--- was looking at her watch???
