Sorry, I still call bullshit on this one....

While the letter you show may be real, the dial surely is not.

Its one of the many bastard children of the "Rinaldi Factory" of dials..... In fact, this is the same example as shown several years ago in the threadhttp://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?p=637967 (You can see the discoloration on the blue of the bezel matches identically at the 3 oclock.)

While I have changed my personal opinion that these white GMTs DO exist, this is not a real example. The ones I believe to be correct are like the ones posted by Stefano on his blog-

Noticed the pronounced serif above the letter "L".

At any rate, where exactly is this PAN-AM museum?? When can we make a class visit there?

I have a feeling.....

We were about to see that one in an auction somewhere or perhaps on another forum. What do the Pan American games and Pan Am airlines have to do with each other in this "museum"? I'll buy the first 15 rounds of beers for anyone willing to meet me there. I have free flight vouchers for Pan Am & Value Jet. Care to join me? Sheesh.........

Detail information

April 13 2011, 5:11 PM 

I certainly Stefano's 6542 white dial is not true. When you saw this watch and related documents, I found that Pan Am's 6542 similar to the Japanese
Certificate. It is the name and address of the owner of the watch.

Most worthy of discussion is on its dial, year of production. According to my observations, white dial printing is very different than black dial. For example, white dial of Oyster Perpetual writing is not have "-". And also this magazine indicated that how many pieces to the winners, about more than 100. Year of production for the 1958-59.

On the other hand, I asked the source of the watch museum staff. He only said that donation from the volunteer. Later, I asked if he could shoot a series for its close-up. He also said not to bother it, because it is the pride of Americans.

P.S Tips: Pan AM Museum shows on the magazine, please don't ask me.
Thanks! VRF

Wait a minute, you're confusing your lies here Codly. Your story is breaking down:

"On the other hand, I asked the source of the watch museum staff. He only said that donation from the volunteer. Later, I asked if he could shoot a series for its close-up. He also said not to bother it, because it is the pride of Americans.

P.S Tips: Pan AM Museum shows on the magazine, please don't ask me."

You said originally this was in a Pan Am Museum, now its a watch museum?

You not only had pictures of you or someone else holding the watch, but were able to provide a closeup shot of the watch upon request by another forum member.

YET NOW, you say you couldn't bother the watch because its the pride of Americans? Haha sure, a watch that no one has seen before is our pride. Whatever you "say."

The more you ramble on the more your story falls apart. Although, this has gota be a joke right!? I'm sure I'm just playing along and making it more fun of a joke for you...

If you just...

April 13 2011, 7:59 PM 

...read the [viewable] text of the purported letter, it's obviously not written by a native English speaker, which makes crab cakes of the whole shebang.
Oh bother. --Pooh

I totally agree - A very poor attempt at a fake doc.

please explain detail your reason

April 13 2011, 10:39 PM 

I can disclose this watch source and history.
And also show the document, magazine and who sign the letter.
I don't care you check it or not because I know that false document is a serious offense.
If you can explain all information, or you have this watch. Please show for our.
I believe that you have not strong reasons to explain.

Regards,
Codly

Let me explain.

April 14 2011, 3:49 AM 

A magazine next to a watch does not authenticate the watch.
If the GM of Pan Am wrote that letter then he was decidedly under the weather at the time.

You explain it very bad, this book not only lists the Pan American and other companies, but also to the winners list of Rolex.
