Rolex GMT For Sale
The Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II is the ideal watch for travellers crisscrossing the globe. Its bidirectional rotatable 24-hour bezel allows you to display two different time zones simultaneously.
In 2018, Rolex surprised fans with a new version of this model featuring a brown-black Cerachrom bezel. The reference 126720VTNR was also the first to be available in Everose gold, their patented rose gold alloy.
The Rolex GMT-Master II Dial
With its bidirectional rotatable bezel and 24-hour hand, the Rolex GMT-Master II is a popular choice for travellers. This model was originally designed to help pilots track multiple time zones at once, but its unmistakable aesthetics and durability have made it a favorite for travelers and watch enthusiasts alike.
The Reference 16760 is the first GMT-Master II to feature a meteorite dial, and as a result it earned the nickname “Fat Lady.” This watch features a larger case than previous models, and its red and black bezel has become iconic. Never-worn pieces of this model are currently changing hands for around 16,500 USD, and pre-owned watches cost slightly less.
For those who cannot afford a white gold and meteorite dial, Rolex also offers a technically identical model in stainless steel. The reference 126710 BLRO is available on a Jubilee or Oyster bracelet and comes with a brown ceramic bezel insert. This model has superior legibility thanks to its Chromalight display, which emits a bright glow even in complete darkness.
Bracelet of The Rolex GMT-Master II
The GMT-Master II is a travel companion, with its bi-directional rotating bezel that displays GMT time in cities all around the globe. It is a favorite among wanderlust travelers, and a must-have for anyone who regularly crosses timezones for work or play.
In 2021, Rolex introduced the reintroduced three link stainless steel Oyster bracelet on the GMT-Master II models, adding a more tool-oriented sporting flair to this already utilitarian timepiece. This option was previously only available on the Rolex Datejust series.
The new Oyster bracelet also offers an easy-to-use extension piece, which adds 5 mm to the bracelet without changing its appearance. This is very useful when the wrist expands during activities, but it can also be handy in cases where the wearer wishes to keep a shorter bracelet length. Rolex also updated the Oysterclasp folding clasp to the more practical version found on sports watches – this feature was previously only offered on the Datejust series.
