Rolex began production of the Ref. 5036 in the late 1940s as a replacement for the earlier Ref. 4767. Production
lasted for only a short period of time as it was quickly replaced by Ref. 6036, which featured an improved three-
piece case. Examples of Ref. 5036 in pink gold were produced in limited numbers.

In the 1960s the Peruvian Air Force bought watches from Rolex for use by their pilots. Almost all of the pieces that
have reappeared on the market are Daytona chronographs. Examples of GMT-Masters for the Peruvian Air Force
are rarely found.
It is interesting to note that the GMT-Master is a model designed for pilots and is therefore more appropriate for use by an air force than a chronograph.

This model, Ref. 5508, was released in 1958 and was one of the last models of the so-called ‘James Bond’
Submariners. The nickname comes from the fact that models similar to this, without crown guards, were frequently
featured in the Bond movies. Today any Submariner without crown guards is referred to as a ‘James Bond’ model.
