And though Rolex has set out revamped GMTs three out of the earlier 5 yrs, this is not just any GMT—it’s established up with a scarce configuration. If you seem meticulously, you’ll see that the two the date window and the crown (the knob jutting out from the scenario) are situated on the still left-hand facet of the watch.

By natural means, this is a best view for Westbrook, who is a little something of a handedness oddball.
