The Rolex GMT Master "Pepsi Bezel" 16750 was produced from 1979 to 1988. One of the most distinctive sport watches in the world, the Rolex GMT Master has a red and blue bezel, which is often affectionately referred to as the “Pepsi bezel” in reference to the soft drink producer’s traditional color theme. In the mid 1950s, when Rolex first released the original GMT-Master - their first aviation watch - the blue color is actually attributed to Pan American Airlines who Rolex consulted with during the development of their two-time zone GMT sport watch.
