Rolex GMT-Master II, ref. 16710

This product is unavailable

 The GMT-Master is one of the pillars in the famous Rolex sport watch collection, alongside the Submariner and the Daytona. Easily identifiable with it’s two-colored bezel, the GMT-Master has become an icon among vintage watch collectors, with some owning a number of examples of this same model. 

In the 1950’s, the GMT-Master was developed in cooperation with the Pan-American Airlines to assist pilots with telling time in multiple time zones. As flight technology increased, so did flight times and distances, meaning pilots would be crossing through a number of time zones in one flight. To keep pilots on correct time, Rolex created the GMT-Master with a hand that could be set to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the standard time used by pilots, while the other hour hand could be set to local time.
