One vintage Rolex that stands out for its uniqueness is the GMT-Master Pepsi Bakelite Bezel reference 6542. The reference 6542 is the first GMT-Master to be produced. This watch was created to help commercial pilots in their profession. The vintage Rolex GMT-Master Pepsi Bakelite Bezel 6542 was produced in the mid to late 1950s. However, the reference 6542 had a short production length of just five years, from 1955-1959. The Bakelite bezel was replaced with a non-luminous metal insert during its production term due to the fact it was known to crack and have radioactive components.
This specific vintage Rolex GMT-Master Pepsi Bakelite Bezel reference 6542 offers antique qualities and original components. The red and black bezel is in adequate shape however some of the numbers show wear. The black dial features the brand symbol and phrases, “Oyster-Perpetual” and “GMT-Master Officially Certified Chronometer.” The baton and round indices have slight blemishes on them. However, the stainless steel case looks to be in a good condition overall.
