Rolex has tons of legendary and iconic collections, and one of those collections is the Rolex GMT-Master. This is Rolex’s classic watch for pilots. In 1955, Rolex responded to the increased intercontinenal commercial air travel, by launching Rolex GMT-Master, the world’s first wristwatch with a GMT function. The modern version of this watch is called Rolex GMT-Master II which is proven to reliable and invaluable in terms of long distance travel.
When the GMT-Master II came onto the market, it was probably the greatest redesign of a model of great history. The lovely new ceramic insert (fade and scratch resistant) for the bezel, its weightier case and more aggressive looking dial brought to bear a new era for the pilot’s watch. It features a rotating 24-hour advanced bezel and a distinct 24-hour hand. With its excellent time tracking features, the wearer may simultaneously read three different time zones in one glance.
Rolex GMT-Master II is an excellent sports and dress watch, which can be used for water activities and frequent travels across time zones. This oversized watch has a large dial which exudes a gorgeous and classy appeal. The GMT-Master II is not only exclusively designed for pilots. This aviator’s watch will surely amaze anyone with a superior taste for luxurious watches. With its sophisticated design and refined appearance, the timepiece can increase your graceful charm and appeal.
The most iconic Rolex GMT-Master II is the one that uses a blue and red bezel, also known as the “Pepsi Dial”. The red color is fairly difficult to create on ceramic, and Rolex has already patented the process that they started using in 2005. Another interesting note is that the entire bezel starts out red, and through a chemical process the deep blue color is formed on one half of the bezel. Like the GMT bezels of the past, the idea is that a traveler can use the bezel in tandem with the GMT hand to easily keep track of their current time zone. There are 24 hour markers labeled around the bezel, and each one is accented in platinum to help with visibility.
Rolex GMT-Master II is a very reliable and easy-to-use travel companion with an interesting history, no wonder so many people will regard it as the favorite Swiss replica Rolex watches.
