Rolex is the most well-known luxury watch brand in today's market. Rolex's reputation has been based on its exceptionally high-quality products, which has spanned over many years. Rolex watches are reliable, robust, and are a sign of genuine perfection.
Out of many Rolex watch models, the GMT Master II is one of the most popular watches.
Rolex GMT-Master II has undergone several forms, ranging from the bezel and bracelet colors to the materials used for the cases. All of these classic watches have turned into collectors' luxury timepieces and are, in most cases, worth more than the price they were bought for.
GMT Master was originally designed for professional use to help airline pilots. Featuring the ability to tell time accurately in two different zones and all the precision that the company is known for the GMT Master II has quickly become a popular luxury watch worldwide.
Rolex GMT-Master II was developed mostly for business applications. It has drawn more travelers by combining peerless features and robust looks. Today, the company sells models with a combination of steel, gold and diamonds They use sapphire crystal to protect their face, and recent versions make the bezel more scratch-resistant by means of high-tech ceramics.
GMT-Master II is fully designed and manufactured by Rolex with the caliber 3186, a self-winding mechanical movement. This is a very reliable, self-winding motion driving the fourth hand, enabling you to see the time inside your chosen time zone.
It has a 24-hour hand to show a second time zone in addition to the traditional hours, minutes, and seconds hands.
Rolex 3186 movement is a classification designated for high-precision clocks, which have undergone testing successfully at the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. 3186 has a Parachrom Bleu hairspring, which offers more shock resistance and temperature differences. Its construction makes it uniquely accurate, in common with all Oyster watch movements.
You can get this watch in many of the traditional colors, including a Rolex GMT Master II Black or a Rolex GMT Master II Gold, but this watch is also known for its GMT Master II two tone options. Two of the most popular versions include:
This Rolex watch has a ceramic bezel of blue and black.
This GMT Master II 16710 watch comes in a classic blue and red color combination and is sometimes referred to as "Pepsi-Bezel watch."
The popularity of both the GMT Master II Pepsi and the GMT Master II Batman makes them a little harder to find. However, the presence of vendors for pre-owned Rolex watches means that you always have an option to get a Rolex model as new as the Rolex GMT Master II 2019 for a reasonable price.
The GMT-Master II 126710 is the first GMT that uses stainless steel with a "Pepsi" bezel colored in classic red and blue. The first Rolex watch has the ceramic two-tone bezel, which was added by the classic blue and red 'Pepsi' Cerachrom bezel.
In 2019, when Rolex revised the entire GMT-Master II range with some different featured elements, they used a new movement in this watch. That is the 3285 movement, with Chronergy escapement. This is one of the most recent watches from the house of Rolex, and without a doubt, comes installed with modern features.
