Rolex "Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master officially certified Chronometer"

, Movement No. N729553, Case No. 482549, Ref. 6542, Cal. 1066, 38 mm, circa 1959

An impressive, perfectly preserved and extremely rare vintage automatic wristwatch with "Pepsi" Bakelite bezel, 24h indicator, alternating date disc and Swiss only Gilt Dial in its original condition - without crown guard, so called "Pussy Galore"

Case: steel, screw back ref. 6542 III/59, bidirectional rotating two-coloured original "Pepsi" Bakelite bezel with radial Arabic 24 hours, screwed "Twinlock" winding crown, riveted flexible steel "Oyster" bracelet with endlinks stamped 65, clasp dated 4/57, bracelet length 150 mm, total length 190 mm. Dial: black, "gilt dial", gloss finish, warm luminous indexes, long and slim red 24-hour hand, luminous Mercedes hands (re-lumed, slightly oxidized). The sample with the Geiger counter showed the correct values for this dial corresponding to its age.

This reference 6542 is one of the last examples of this model and the best-preserved watch of its kind available on the market right now. The case is almost immaculate and has a marvelously polished and brushed surface with strong beveled lugs. The unusual, two-coloured Bakelite bezel is equally pristine and creates a perfect, incredibly beautiful frame for the black, glossy dial with gilt printing. Numerals and hands are charmingly aged and wow the onlooker with a gentle and warm creamy hue repeated in the numerals of the 24 h scale on the bezel. The original "Oyster-flex" bracelet shows hardly any signs of wear.
The watch takes its name from "Bond girl" Honor Blackman in the 1964 film "Goldfinger". Honor Blackman plays the role of Goldfinger’s pilot Pussy Galore and wears a Rolex GMT Master reference 6542.

All things considered, this charismatic timepiece is truly a fantastic opportunity for any discerning collector of rare vintage Rolex sports watches to acquire a true icon – moreover, one that has survived the years in such excellent condition!
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running
