ICON: Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II
In the 1950s, the popularity of intercontinental travel was growing fast. Thus, in 1955, Rolex introduced the GMT-MASTER to meet the needs of international pilots. The watch could track two time zones simultaneously, and that classic model later evolved into the modern- day GMT-MASTER II, which could reflect a third time zone using a rotating 24-hour bezel. The Baselworld 2013 version of this model is crafted in 904L stainless steel and features a two-tone ceramic CERACHROM bezel – a technological and aesthetic feat that can only be achieved by a unique process developed and patented by Rolex. This sporty masculine watch boasts technical muscle too – it comes with the Calibre 3186 self-winding movement and a paramagnetic blue PARACHROM hairspring, and is water-resistant up to 100m.
