ICON: Oys­ter Per­pet­ual GMT-Mas­ter II

24-7 (Singapore) - - Rolex -

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.
