Rolex GMT Master II

Why We Love It

Out of the entire Rolex model line, the GMT-Master is definitely a favorite here at A/S. 

The GMT-Master has a rich history, and there are a wide variety of options on the table when considering to purchase. Whether you decide to go vintage or more contemporary, you can rest assured that you are getting a classic. 

Dating to circa 2010, this particular 116710LN shares many core design cues with previous versions of the GMT, but stands apart visually with its monotone black ceramic bezel and green 24-hour hand. It is unapologetically modern while being truly classic all at once.

Maybe you are hesitant to go down the vintage road - or maybe you are in need of a robust modern classic that can take a beating - in either case, this GMT Master II has already become a favorite among collectors.

The Story

As the legend goes, Pan-Am approached Rolex in 1953 looking for a watch specially designed for their pilots, and a partnership was quickly formed. A Submariner became the base for this new watch, and several important modifications were made to turn a Sub into the GMT-Master that we know today. Rolex added a date function with a cyclops lens magnifier, GMT complication, and two-colored bezel to provide long-haul pilots with the info they needed as they circumnavigated the globe.

The GMT-Master’s 24-hour hand works in conjunction with the rotating bezel to make tracking a second time zone incredibly simple. When the bezel’s triangle is aligned to 12 o’clock, the red arrow hand points to the time on a 24-hour military scale, which in itself is valuable as a day/night indicator (at least if you’re a cave explorer). The usefulness of the complication really shines when the wearer rotates the bezel so that the numbers around the bezel correspond the a 2nd time zone (such as Greenwich Mean Time), allowing the watch to track any two time zones in the world at once.
