Pan Am didn’t know what they started

In all, there have been 7 variants of the GMT Master, and it all started with the 6542 (made famous by Pussy Galore in my favourite of the “old” bond movies) which was developed for Pan Am as a true aviator watch. I think I’ve had four different models so far, but this has to be the best of them; all the vintage loveliness of the much-vaunted 1675 but with a higher beat movement and quick-set date.

The 16750 was produced from 1981-1988, but only the earlier models had a matt dial. The gloss dial with white gold indices is still a lovely watch… just not quite as lovely.
