Watch details

The Rolex GMT Master 16710 was launched in 1989 and replaced the 16760 aka Fat Lady with a new caliber and a slimmer design. It had a production run until 2007 and had minor modifications over time. A very special variant of the 16710 is the Stick dial lacking the serifs of the roman II. It was produced with the Ca.3185 but also with the Cal.3186, the movement which was also used for the later ceramic models. This particular example is preserved in mint unpolished condition and comes in a complete collectors full set and two additional bezel inserts to make it a complete set. A very strong collectible and investment at the same time.

THE GMT-MASTER 1955

The GMT-Master was developed to meet the specific needs of airline pilots. It became the official watch of several airlines, among them the famous Pan American World Airways, better known as Pan Am. Its most distinguishing visual feature was the two-tone bezel which marked daytime from nighttime hours.

THE FIRST TRANSCONTINENTAL FLIGHTS

As intercontinental travel developed in the 1950s, airliners began to fly swiftly across several successive time zones. For the first time it became important to know the time in various places in the world, simultaneously. It was the dawn of the jet age, and Rolex responded with a watch to match the spirit of the times.
