Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126711

$19,195

Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm GMT-Master II, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 126711

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.

This GMT-Master II 126711 features a 40mm stainless steel Oyster case, known for its robustness and water resistance, paired with an 18k rose gold bi-directional rotating bezel with a 24-hour black and brown ‘Rootbeer’ Cerachrom insert, combining durability with a distinctive aesthetic. The black dial is complemented by luminescent hands and hour markers for excellent visibility in low-light conditions. It also includes a dedicated GMT hand and a date reference for added functionality. Powering this timepiece is Rolex’s in-house, self-winding 3285 caliber movement, known for its precision and reliability, and certified by COSC for its accuracy. The watch is presented on a stainless steel and 18k rose gold Oyster bracelet, offering a secure and comfortable fit. Included with the watch is the original box and papers dated 2020, enhancing its authenticity and value as a collectible piece.

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.
