Pan Am Vanilla Coke GMT-Master from Stafano Mazzariol


Pan Am
1958 Vanilla Coke GMT-Master
from
Stafano Mazzariol

Stefano Mazzariol is one of my favorite vintage Rolex collectors. He lives in Italia and his passion for vintage Rolex is intoxicating. He took these STUNNING photo of his STUNNINGLY rare and magnificent 1958 [Reference: 6542] Albino Pan Am Vanilla Coke GMT-Master.

Rolex originally designed the GMT Master for Pan American World Airways (Pan AM) and as the folklore goes, they made the white dialed versions for Pan Am executives, whereas the standard black dialed versions were for Pan Am Pilots. This watch also has a bunch of other really cool features like the Coke (Red & Black) Bakelite Bezel Insert, as well as the red date and no crown guards. What a crazy, magnificent treat!!! Thanks for sharing Stefano!!!! You are the best!!!!

Wow, what an extraordinary piece! Such interesting history! And in such great condition!

Do you happen to know if it is inscribed with the Pan-Am logo on the caseback? Did all the white dial ones come with a red-and-black bezel?
