Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm GMT-Master II, Green Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 116718

The Rolex GMT-Master was initially developed in 1954 in collaboration with Pan American Airways, with the aim of providing pilots with a watch that could display multiple time zones simultaneously. The original model featured a 24-hour bezel and a fourth hand that could be set to a second time zone. Over the years, the GMT-Master underwent various design changes and upgrades, including the addition of the iconic red and blue “Pepsi” bezel in 1959. In 1982, the GMT-Master II was introduced, which allowed for the independent adjustment of the hour hand, making it easier to track multiple time zones. Today, the Rolex GMT-Master II remains one of the most popular and sought-after luxury watches in the world.

The luxurious Rolex GMT-Master II 116718, the perfect blend of style and sophistication. This first-year production reference boasts a stunning 40mm 18k yellow gold case and bi-directional rotating bezel with a black 24-hour Cerachrom insert. The green dial is adorned with luminous hands and hour markers, a dedicated GMT hand, and a date reference, all powered by the reliable 3186 automatic movement. The 18k yellow gold Oyster bracelet with folding Oysterlock clasp and Easylink extension ensures a comfortable and secure fit. Whether you’re jet setting around the world or simply looking for a timeless addition to your collection, the Rolex GMT-Master II 116718 is the perfect choice.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
