An Icon Imag­ined

India Today - - LAST LOOK -

Se­quels al­ways run the risk of fall­ing short of ex­pec­ta­tions, es­pe­cially when they have big shoes to fill. Rolex’s un­mis­tak­able icon, the GMT-Mas­ter, had orig­i­nally been de­signed to aid air­line pi­lots in their nav­i­ga­tion; the new line ex­ten­sion, GMT-Mas­ter II range, comes in Oys­ter-steel, equipped with a bi-di­rec­tional ro­tat­able bezel and a 24-hour grad­u­ated two-colour Cer­achrom in­sert in red and blue ceramic. Apart from the lugs and sides that have been re­designed, the watch is fit­ted on a five-link Ju­bilee bracelet. Two other ver­sions in­tro­duce 18-carat Everose gold to the range for the very first time and the sec­ond com­bines Oys­ter-steel and 18-carat Everose gold. Th­ese new ver­sions are equipped with a new-gen­er­a­tion cal­i­bre 3285. With 10 patent ap­pli­ca­tions filed over the course of its devel­op­ment, the move­ment is equipped with a Chronergy es­cape­ment and guar­an­tees a power re­serve of ap­prox­i­mately 70 hours. If you want the per­fect blend of clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary, the search ends here. Price on re­quest Avail­abil­ity Bou­tique out­lets
