Notes: This very early 18k yellow gold GMT-Master takes center stage in arguably Rolex's most Iconic advertisement campaigns of all time. Though there were many variations of the "You'd wear a Rolex" campaign, none have been more lasting or more ubiquitous than the If You Were Flying the Concorde Tomorrow, You'd Wear a Rolex. Forever entangling the 18K yellow gold 1675 with the supersonic jet age, and international travel to far away destinations.
