Rolex has a storied history with their GMT-Master collection of timepieces, starting with the very first pilot watch ever made specifically for Pan Am Airlines back in 1955. And over the next 40 years, the GMT-Master timepieces have been leaders in luxury, class, and elegance that you’ve come to trust with Rolex.
These watches were first introduced and designed for pilots to keep track of two different time zones at the same time that included a cleverly designed extra hour hand that would make one complete rotation every 24 hours. This means to keep track of a second time zone, all the pilot needed to do was rotate the bezel to align the corresponding numeral with the 24-hour hand on the watch’s face.
It doesn’t get any better when it comes to aviation watches than the GMT-Master II ref 16710. First introduced in 1989 and topped with an aluminum rotatable bezel, this pristine timepiece sports a larger 40mm case and a sapphire crystal and features a brand new movement not yet seen in the GMT-Master line of Rolex watches. This watch features the ability for the wearer to set the 12-hour hand independently without needing to adjust the bezel. The movement in the GMT-Master II 16710 is powered by the Cal. 3185 that makes this Rolex model a true masterpiece.
Experience the difference in design, durability, and luxury that comes with a Rolex GMT-Master II.
