How the Rolex GMT-Master got the Nickname Pepsi

In the early 1950s, Rolex teamed up with Pan American Airlines to design a watch for their team of pilots. This led to the design of the Rolex GMT-Master with a red and blue bezel that matched the airline’s color scheme. Not only did this watch display a second-time zone, its unique, dual-colored bezel also allowed Pan Am’s pilots to quickly differentiate between daytime and nighttime hours. Nowadays, you’ll hear this watch model referred to as the “Pepsi” because of its resemblance to the soda brand’s classic red, white, and blue logo.

US Coins hosted my son's BSA Scout Troop to help them work towards earning their Coin Collecting merit badge. They were very helpful and willing to answer all of the questions that they had. My son wanted to get as much written down on his worksheet as possible before leaving, and Ms. Johns was kind enough to sit down with him and go through the remaining requirements that did not involve actually building a collection. A lot of us parents looked at buying US Mint Proof Sets for our Scouts, and their prices were very good. Thank you to US Coins for being great community members!
