Just Because: An Eight-Year-Old Dreams Of A Rolex 'Sprite' GMT
As HODINKEE capacities as one major freely weave family (to the most amazing aspect our capacity), it’s consistently incredible to have a portion of the all-encompassing fam in the workplace – particularly when they have some good times thoughts for our architects. Enter eight-year-old Zahid Ali, who is the child of Mo Ali (our Director of Product and Strategy), however is likely better known for his affection for LEGO, Daniel Ricciardo, Kobe Bryant – and his brilliant future presumably as your chief. While visiting the workplace, Zahid saw the plan group chipping away at an upcoming restricted version and it started a thought of amazingly fresh taste. Zahid pondered, if Rolex used to make a purported “Coke” GMT-Master II, and still makes a red/blue “Pepsi” GMT, why no adoration for Sprite?
Like any great architect, Zahid sponsored up his thought with a sketch. Appeared over, the sketch overwhelmed the HODINKEE Slack. Our creators went for it and the outcome is without a doubt cool. I additionally rather love the name “Sprite” for a GMT-Master variation. Like the soft drink of its motivation, Zahid’s “Sprite” GMT is splendid, fun, and totally particular from its cola-based kin.
While we may never see a “Sprite” on Zahid’s wrist, we do cherish his vision of an existence where every single incredible pop (not you, RC Cola) get some GMT-Master representation. A enormous thanks so Zahid for the great thought and to our architect Ian for carrying it as near reality as could be expected.
