The Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II is one of the most iconic watches in the whole Rolex range, hailing back to the early days of international air travel. Pan Am pilots who regularly travelled between London and New York made a request to Rolex to make a wristwatch which would simultaneously show the time in two separate time zones. So, in 1957 the first GMT-Master (Greenwich Mean Time) with additional 24-hour pointer hand, and a rotating bezel made out Bakelite was produced. The blue & red colouring of the bezel differentiated between night and day. For the first time, a Professional tool watch was offered both on the traditional Oyster bracelet and the newer Jubilee bracelet.

The red & black bezel has been discontinued and is now only available in red & blue, or black & blue ceramic.

In 2019 Rolex re-structured the GMT-Master II range of models. The all black Bezel LN model with the Oyster bracelet was discontinued, and the blue & black bezel BLNR model has been re-designed to pair up with the red & blue bezel BLRO model with the Jubilee bracelet which was released a year earlier.

The modern GMT-Master II now boasts new materials and modern technology, but still maintains the DNA of the original. The current model is waterproof to 100 metres and is made entirely from Oystersteel (an alloy of 904L stainless steel specific to Rolex), with a 40mm case size, and a rotating bezel made from Cerachrom (a virtually scratch resistant ceramic material) in two distinct colours, marked out in hourly graduations. Both models are fitted with a Jubilee bracelet which has an Oysterlock safety clasp with the patented Easylink rapid extension system for additional comfort.

The new Calibre 3235 fully automatic winding movement boasts a power reserve of up to 70 hours, which means that the watch will keep time if not worn for up to three days and has a Superlative Chronometer accuracy of -2/+2 seconds per day.

All Rolex watches are 100% Swiss made, which is your guarantee of the highest quality materials and manufacturing skills.  As a testament to their reliability, new watches should not require servicing for up to 10 years.
