He bought the 1960 Rolex GMT in Germany when he was stationed there in the army just before he came back home. It was the first Rolex GMT master that the company ever made, and also has some pretty interesting and unique details. He also saved all of the original paperwork!
He bought the watch for just a little over $100 in 1960, watch and see how much it is worth now
We love to see stories like this. I wonder if he will sell the watch. I might have to go through all my stuff and see if I find anything I can bring to the Antiques road-show - Follow @airChino
