The GMT-Master was originally introduced as a pilot watch but nowadays it has a great fan base. The reference 16718 explains immediately why the watch enjoys so much popularity outside its initially intended audience.This stunning piece dates back to the year 1990, runs on caliber 3185 and is, as you can see, executed in gold. The case is in great condition and the watch comes on an 18k yellow-gold, riveted Oyster bracelet that is in great condition too. It has no stretch at all. The watch has a black 24-hour bezel and glossy dial with 18k yellow-gold hands and hour markers filled with tritium as luminescent material. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal.


Rolex GMT-MasterFasten your seatbelts for the story of the Rolex GMT-Master. Aviation company Pan-Am requested Rolex to create a wristwatch that would display multiple time-zones simultaneously, as their flights got longer; crossing multiple time-zones. Rolex came up with the GMT-Master (‘GMT’ stands for ‘Greenwich Mean Time’) in 1954. The watch features a date-function and an extra hour hand (with triangle) that points out the second time zone on the bi-directional turning, 24hour bezel.Still linked to aviation and although meant for professional use, it enjoys a much wider fan base ever since it first saw light. Over the years it underwent some changes and there are so many wonderful variations of this all-time Rolex classic. Some GMT’s are great as a single purchase, others are a wonderful addition to any collection and some of them can be considered as the crowning glory.
