Since we have a FEW GMT fans here

I had to share this, as I think this is just super awesome wicked cool.... A 1950's Rolex 6542 "Albino" GMT with Bakelite bezel. These are a rare as hens teeth. Article here, had to share, and enjoy the day people!

Isn't this the Pan AM model?

Love my Squale homage..

It would hold that the Albino model was made for executives of the airline Pan-Am who were cranky the Pilots were getting the cool GMT we all know, and they weren't. To quiet them down, Rolex cooked up this baby and let it loose. That's how the story goes anyway....
Check this out!
