Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16710

$13,795

Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm GMT-Master II, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref 16710

The Rolex GMT-Master II shares the roots of its earlier namesake but in a larger case with larger dial markers. This GMT-Master II uses the solid caliber 3185 with COSC certification and a hacking, quickset 24-hour hand. This is an improvement over the first GMT-Masters as the conventional hour can jump in one hour increments to adjust to the new local time. The anodized ‘Pepsi’ aluminum insert bezel rotates with 120 clicks and the dial is covered with a sapphire crystal.  This watch attached to the famous stainless steel Oyster bracelet with folding clasp. The GMT-Master was designed to meet the expanding era of commercial flight whereby pilots and travelers alike found themselves in different time zones in a single day. By adding a fourth hand to the dial and a 24-hour scale on a rotating bezel, pilots could easily track time in multiple time zones.  Whether a pilot or passenger, the GMT-Master II is still a useful companion wherever your travels take you.

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.
