First launched in 1955 and originally designed for professional use by airline pilots, the GMT-Master became a huge hit with travellers. Showing two time zones simultaneously was of great benefit to those travelling across continents and time zones. GMT, of course, stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which marks solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. The presented model has been discontinued and is a highly collectible model.
