Che Guevarra Wearing His Rolex

There is some debate as to the model, some saying it was a GMT Master while others claim his Rolex was a Submariner.

According to Felix Rodriguez’s his most magnificent moment came when he lifted off in a helicopter from La Higuera, Bolivia, on October 9, 1967, with Che Guevara’s body lashed to the right skid. “On my wrist was his steel Rolex GMT Master with its red-and-blue bezel,” he recounted. “In my breast pocket, wrapped in paper from my loose-leaf notebook, was the partially smoked tobacco from his last pipe.”

Some pictures show Che wearing a GMT Master so the speculation is that he owned both.

Fidel Castro is also a Rolex fan who would wear two of them on the same wrist, a GMT Master and a Day-Date. Ostensibly to keep track of local and Kremlin time.

Of course the main feature of the GMT is to show the time in two different time zones…
