Rolex designed the GMT Master in the 1950s after Pan Am airlines asked them to design a watch for their pilots that could tell the time in multiple time zones. This cleverly designed watch features two-hour hands, one for the local time and one for the reference time. The reference time is read off the 24-hour bezel, which the wearer can rotate to set the second time zone. Following the success of the GMT Master Rolex introduced the GMT-Master II in the ’80s. The GMT-Master II allows the owner to set the 24-hour hand independently from the 12-hour hand. Due to its larger and heavier frame than the GMT Master, it was given the nickname 'The Fat Lady'.
