"The reason to take Pepsi over Coke"
In 1954, Rolex introduced a brand-new watch designed specifically for the "Jet Set"—those privileged trend-setters who frequently traveled and need the ability to tell time simultaneously in two time zones. Rolex made the chore both straightforward and fashionable by utilizing a fourth "GMT" hand that could be seen against 24-hour markers on a rotating bezel. The original GMT Master was the model No 6542 which featured a Pepsi bezel insert made from the all-new wonder material, Bakelite. Unfortunately, bakelite developed a tendency to crack and so was replaced by an aluminium bezel insert in 1956. Over the years Rolex have produced several versions of the GMT Master, the best known of which have nicknames for their bezel insert colour scheme taken from the names of fizzy drinks – ‘Pepsi’ (bright red and blue), ‘Coke’ (dark red and black) and ‘Root Beer’ (brown and gold). Other colours have also been available including black, the extremely rare navy blue military issue from the mid 1960’s and more recently the blue and black (Batman) ceramic insert. However, the classic GMT Master for most people has always been and will always be the red and blue ‘Pepsi’ insert.
Known the world over, Rolex is a benchmark for prestige and quality in watchmaking. Since its creation, the brand has placed the reliability of its products uppermost. It submits virtually its entire movement production for testing by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres to obtain COSC certification. Rolex is also renowned for its after-sales service which is performed by staff who have been specially trained, often in Rolex's own schools in countries around the globe, including the United States and Japan. Rolex was founded by Hans Wilsdorf. A Bavarian watchmaker who emigrated to Switzerland, he immediately put his natural flair for products and business acumen at the service of a brand that would soon forge an international reputation. He was succeeded in 1963 by André Heiniger, whose son Patrick took over at the helm in 1992. Bruno Meier in 2009 then Gian Riccardo Marini in 2011 were successively appointed at the head of the business, a limited company (société anonyme) that is wholly owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation. In 2014, Jean-Frédéric Dufour, previously Chief Executive of Zenith, was named as the new CEO. Such a reputation hasn't gone unnoticed among collectors, as recent auction results demonstrate. At a 2013 sale in Geneva, for example, a Daytona Chronograph in steel achieved an absolute record price of US$ 1.1 million. The brand hones its image through associations with prominent and well-respected personalities chosen from the arts and sports. Also, in 1976 Rolex launched its Awards for Enterprise which each year single out innovative projects that promote sustainable development. The Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative gives young artists a privileged opportunity to benefit from the experience of masters in their field.
