$45,495

Pre-Owned (Unworn) Rolex 40mm 18K Gold GMT-Master II, Black Dial, Jubilee Bracelet, Ref. 126718

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.

A premium timepiece for those who appreciate luxury and precision. It features a 40mm 18k yellow gold case and a bi-directional rotating bezel with a black Cerachrom insert, designed for tracking a second time zone. The black dial is adorned with luminescent hands and hour markers, ensuring excellent legibility in various conditions. The watch also includes a date reference and a dedicated GMT hand for quick time zone adjustments. Powering this timepiece is the self-winding 3285 caliber movement, renowned for its accuracy and reliability. The watch is complemented by an 18k yellow gold Jubilee bracelet that adds to its opulent aesthetic. This Rolex GMT-Master II 126718 is in unworn, new condition and comes with its original box and papers, dated 2023. It’s a statement of sophistication and precision, making it a timeless addition to any watch collection.

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.
