  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.

The Rolex "Pepsi" GMT is something of a mythical reference constantly surrounded by intrigue... Will it be discontinued? Did you know that the bezel is completely red under UV light? Oyster or Jubilee? Whatever the discussion, the fact remains that the modern interpretation of the “Pepsi” GMT remains one of the standout highlights of the Rolex catalogue for its everyday usability and pop of colour. Since the concept was launched in 1955, it could be argued no brand has delivered such a versatile multi time zone sports watch. The present example, found in practically unworn condition, is complete with full accessories and an eye-catching provenance.
