Baselworld 2019: Rolex GMT-Master II
Rolex is presenting a new version of the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a two-colour 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert in blue and black ceramic. This watch, in Oystersteel and fitted with a Jubilee bracelet, echoes the GMT-Master II introduced in 2018, which featured a Cerachrom bezel insert in red and blue ceramic. The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the profile of the 40 mm Oyster case.
This new version is equipped with calibre 3285, at the forefront of watchmaking technology, first introduced on the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in 2018.
Like all Rolex watches, the new GMT-Master II carries the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance on the wrist.
Designed as a navigation aid for professionals criss-crossing the globe, over time the GMT-Master became the watch of choice for travellers. The emblematic single- or two-colour bezel has been made available in a variety of colours and combinations. It is what makes the design unique and instantly recognizable.
With traditional hour, minute and seconds hands, a triangle-tipped 24-hour hand, and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert, the GMT-Master II can display the time in two time zones simultaneously: either the local time and the reference time, or the local time and that of an alternative time zone. The date, at 3 o’clock on the dial, is synchronized with the local time.
