Ref: ROLEX 1675 MK5 A 'MAXI DIAL' RED BACK BEZEL + 78360 OYSTER STRAP
In the early 1950’s, Pan American World Airways had a growing cache of pilots traveling ever more distantly and frequently. As their time abroad grew, Pan-Am realized that supplying their pilots with a watch that tracked both local and home time could help reduce scheduling error, improve jet lag, and even help morale. They approached Mr. Rene-Paul Jeanneret, the public relations manager of Montres Rolex SA, and requested that they develop a dual time-zone watch for their fleet. Credit gmtmaster1675
