Rolex are credited with introducing the first wristwatch which could display the time in two timezones in 1954. The Rolex GMT Master was developed following a request from Pan Am who wanted their pilots to track the time in the timezone they had left and also in their destination on a single timepiece. Although GMT watches are traditionally linked with aviation, these days they are regarded as a tool watch for anyone. the PRS-22GMTQ is fitted with the Ronda 515.24 quartz movement with independently adjustable 24 hour hand.
The PRS-22GMTQ incorporates a soft iron dial, anti-magnetic movement retaining ring and anti-magnetic movement cover giving a very high anti-magnetic rating of 20,000 A/m, a rating usually associated only with watches costing several times the price of the PRS-22GMTQ. The high legibility of the dial ensures that both timezones can be read at a glance.
The Speedbird GMTQ is guaranteed for two years and will be supplied with one single watch travel case.
