The rose gold GMT-Master was first introduced in the mid-1950s as reference 6542 and then at the end of the ’50s as reference 1675/8. In 1979 the GMT-Master entered its transitional phase with reference 16758 in rose gold. Still a plastic glass but with a quick-set date. Then in the mid-1980s they took reference 16758 and gave it the makeover of a lifetime and called it the SARU. And it wasn’t just a tokenistic gem-set bezel, Rolex took the look all the way with a fully paved dial, with blue sapphire hour markers. The finishing touch was a yellow gold President bracelet with 12 brilliant cut diamonds mounted in the centre links. The overall effect was stunning and was truly the first time that Rolex had played with such a masterpiece jewelry and sports watch crossover.
