GMT-Master II


Presented in Oystersteel, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in its black and blue color scheme has seen an important update at Baselworld 2019.

By wholly updating the Manufacture Rolex Caliber that powers it and by replacing its style of bracelet, the GMT-Master II “Batman” — as it is lovingly called among enthusiasts for its black and blue color scheme — has been fundamentally renewed for 2019.

Debuted in 1945 on the first Rolex Datejust, the Jubilee bracelet offers remarkable comfort on the latest GMT-Master II model as well, thanks to its five-link design that wraps around the wrist with utmost ease

The GMT-Master II ranks among the numerous iconic and inimitable Rolex watch collections. Originally launched in 1955 and updated to its second generation variant in 1982, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master has been the go-to, all-capable watch of globetrotters for over 60 years.

The iconic two-color bezel of the GMT-Master II shines in black and blue on this so-called “BLNR” model — now matched to a five-link Jubilee bracelet and updated with the latest generation Manufacture Rolex Caliber

It earned its hitherto unmatched status through its remarkable combination of utility, style, versatility, comfort and dependability. The current GMT-Master II line, including the 126710BLNR reference we are presenting today, is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet), owing to its exceptionally engineered Rolex Oyster case and Triplock waterproof crown.

Its traveler-friendly functionality stems from its ability to render two time zones simultaneously legible by combining the traditional triple main indications of hours, minutes and seconds, with the addition of a fourth center-mounted 24-hour hand that is independently adjustable. This 24-hour hand points at the 24-hour graduated Cerachrom ceramic bezel insert, allowing for easy reading of time in an alternative time zone — or one’s home time when traveling!

The Jubilee bracelet and its trademark properties — such as its instantly recognizable, five-link design and exceptional wearing comfort — will be immediately recognizable to those who have already owned a Rolex timepiece fitted with Jubilee. Today made exclusively in Oystersteel, the Jubilee bracelet originally debuted in 1945 with the first-ever Datejust and, just like the watch it premiered with, has become a watchmaking icon in its own right.

The stellar elegance of the Jubilee bracelet stands in perfect balance with the sportier, all-capable design of the GMT-Master II. The ideal timepiece for globetrotters

Despite its 40mm case diameter being shared with truly sporty Rolex models such as the Submariner, the GMT-Master II has in fact always been a relatively more casual alternative, designed not to conquer the depths of the seas, but to conquer the open skies on wrists of pilots and jet-set travelers. As such, its new-found combination with the Jubilee bracelet further emphasizes its casual style and perfect fit for every situation and attire.

The new Manufacture Rolex Caliber 3285 that powers the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II is at the forefront of modern watchmaking.

With an exceptional precision rating of -2/+2 seconds per day, extended power reserve at approximately 70 hours, a re-engineered going train and an energy efficient Chronergy escapement are among its most notable technological advancements.

Fully capable and designed to take on the world, this robust caliber combines dependability with outstanding performance and utility.

The new-for-2019 GMT-Master II combines its black and blue bezel with the Jubilee bracelet to highlight the collection’s more casual side, stepping away from its sportier aesthetic
Designed to assist with keeping track of multiple time zones at once, the GMT-Master II is the ideal timepiece for the experienced world-traveler. Water resistant to a depth of 100 meters and remarkably precise and reliable thanks to its latest generation Manufacture Rolex Caliber, it truly is ready for travel around the world
