The first Rolex 6542 GMT-Master was introduced in 1954 to fulfill Pan-Am Airlines’ request of a watch that could simultaneously display two time zones at once. A 24-hour hand and a rotating bezel were included in the original model. The GMT-Master was named after the Greenwich Mean Time, which could display multiple time zones at once. Gallery 63 presents an 18-karat gold Rolex 6542 GMT wristwatch with a soldered oyster band in the upcoming Spring Estates & Modern Art Auction. The sale also offers other timepieces by Rolex, including the Daytona 16520 with Patrizzi subdials and the Sea Dweller Deepsea Cameron.
A collection of jewelry, ranging from diamond and platinum rings, earrings, and necklaces, is also showcased. Highlighted is a diamond Alhambra necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels. The four-leaf Alhambra collection was introduced in 1968 and symbolized luck. Persian rugs from Ghome Qume and Tabriz, a selection of Hermès scarves, and several Louis Vuitton handbags are also featured.
