The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II, a global watch with excellent performance, allows travelers to read the time in two places simultaneously. Precise, reliable, robust, and practical, the GMT-Master II is the epitome of a multi-time zone watch.
Rolex launched three GMT-Master II watches at the 2018 Baselworld Watch and Jewelry Fair, equipped with a new 3285 movement and a redesigned watch appearance. The first watch is an Oystersteel model, fitted with an Oyster case and a commemorative strap. Its two-way rotating outer ring has a red and blue two-color Cerachrom ceramic 24-hour scale insert. The other two GMT-Master IIs are cast in 18ct eternal rose gold for the first time, with brown and black two-color Cerachrom ceramic bezels. Swiss movement replica watches.
In name and function, the GMT-Master II evokes time zone changes and globetrotting. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) refers to the standard time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, a suburb of London. The prime meridian, used as a reference for longitude and time zone calculations, passes here.
The GMT-Master II features an arrow-shaped 24-hour hand, a bi-directional rotating bezel, and a colored Cerachrom ceramic 24-hour insert. When the outer ring is at noon, indicated by the triangle mark, the 24-hour hand displays the departure time (such as home time), which can be read from the corresponding outer ring scale.
This watch uses a cleverly designed, independently adjustable jumping hour hand.
The bezel is carefully designed to ensure the wearer can read the time accurately. Rolex has developed a spring bezel rotation system that makes the bezel smooth and reliable and can rotate in both directions. It will make a crisp click sound every 24 hours after each position.
The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master was launched in 1955 and witnessed the rise and development of intercontinental travel in the late 20th century. This watch became the designated watch of Pan American World Airways, the most famous American international airline. In 1959, Pan Am’s first direct flight, the Jet Clipper, successfully arrived in Moscow from New York, establishing the brand’s partnership with the airline. The flight captain wore a GMT-Master and used his watch to aid navigation during the flight.
In 2018, the GMT-Master II was equipped with the new caliber 3285. Rolex presents three completely new models.
This self-winding movement has obtained ten patents, fully embodying Rolex’s innovative technology and top watchmaking craftsmanship. Regarding accuracy and reliability, power reserve, shock resistance and antimagnetic, and ease of use, the 3285 movement has evolved from the original To improve the basics further and achieve perfection.
The first GMT-Master II launched in 2018 is an Oystersteel model, equipped with a five-link commemorative strap, a two-way rotating outer ring, and a red and blue two-color Cerachrom ceramic 24-hour scale bezel, which is similar to the first-generation GMT-Master in 1955. The color combinations echo each other. The GMT-Master II watch combines a commemorative strap, Oystersteel, and a red and blue two-color Cerachrom ceramic bezel for the first time.
GMT-Master II includes the first-ever 18ct Everose gold model and Everose gold steel model. The former is entirely cast in refined and unique Everose gold, while the latter combines 18ct Everose gold and Oystersteel. Both watches are equipped with brown and black two-color Cerachrom ceramic bezels. The brown bezel is the latest development result of Rolex. The words “GMT-Master II” on the dial are pink rose gold.
All three watches have black lacquer dials, clear and easy-to-read Chromalight hands, and hour markers (long-lasting blue light) made of 18ct white or pink gold. The 24-hour hand of the Oystersteel model is painted red.
The strap is also equipped with an Oyster safety buckle, a sophisticated device that prevents the buckle from opening accidentally. Concealed ear caps ensure a seamless visual connection between the strap and case.
