#DoubleSigned : The present Reference 6542 is an absolutely breathtaking and exceptional Rolex GMT-Master. Most impressively, it is the only known and correct reference 6542 cased in yellow gold and retailed by Serpico y Laino to have ever appeared at auction. All details and components are as they should be, rendering it one of the most important reference 6542s to ever appear on the market. Having first surfaced at public auction seven years ago, the watch has remained unaltered and in private hands ever since. The honey-coloured dial is spectacular and most notably displays the signature of Serpico y Laino above the GMT-Master text. Through time, it has faded slightly, giving it an incredibly charismatic appearance. All luminous material has aged consistently and now display warm patina. The original Bakelite bezel remains intact and is preserved in exceptional condition. It does not show any signs of cracking - an incredible feat, considering that bakelite is incredibly fragile and brittle. The case is preserved in beautiful and excellent condition, with crisp bevels that are still visible. Most importantly, the outside case back is stamped with gold marks - a common feature among South American imported timepieces. The timepiece even retains its original Jubilee "Big Logo" bracelet stamped for the fourth quarter of 1958. It will be offered on Nov 9 during our Double Signed thematic sale.
