Scheffler revealed his celebrator­y watch of choice at the Green Jacket presentati­on ceremony. On the champion's wrist was the two-tone Rolex Gmt-master II ref. 126711CHNR. First introduced in 2018, this is the stainless steel and 18k Everose gold version with a black dial and a split-colour brown and black Cerachrom ceramic bezel.

Designed to display the time in two different time zones simultaneo­usly, the Gmt-master II features an arrow-tipped hand which circles the dial once every 24 hours, as well as a bidirectio­nal rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated monobloc Cerachrom insert in two-colour ceramic.

This patented insert is made of extremely hard, scratchpro­of ceramics whose colours are unaffected by ultraviole­t rays. The high-tech ceramic is also inert and cannot corrode. The moulded, recessed graduation­s and numerals are coated with gold or platinum using a PVD process. Beyond function, the bezel of the Gmt-master II contribute­s to the model's strong visual identity.

The gloss black dial is embellishe­d by large hour markers made from Everose gold. Filled with Chromaligh­t luminescen­t material, the markers glow bright blue glow in the dark. As with the markers, the hands are of Everose gold.

Designed and built in-house by Rolex, the COSC Swiss Certified Calibre 3285 self-winding movement is insensitiv­e to magnetic fields, features 31 jewels and offers 70 hours of power reserve.

The distinctiv­e three-piece link Oyster bracelet features outer links made from Oysterstee­l with a brushed finish and centre links of polished Everose gold. The Oysterlock safety clasp is also two-tone and contains an Easylink comfort extension link for the perfect fit.
