This authentic Rolex GMT Master II reference 16713, in steel and yellow gold, also features the unusual and desirable gold and steel Rolex flip lock clasp to its Oyster bracelet, and comes from the first year this feature was introduced. Presented in outstanding condition, our example comes unpolished although this can be arranged, if preferred, prior to sale. The "two colour" or "bicolour" Rolex GMT Master is much more unusual than the bicolour Submariner. Rolex GMTs are rapidly appreciating in value and we think this model is one to monitor! Retailed in 1998 with a W** serial, this watch will come with its original Rolex papers and a Rolex box.

Introduced in 1954 through a collaboration with Pan Am airways, the Rolex GMT Master was designed to measure two timezones. The red arrow hand indicates the second timezone which can be adjusted by rotating the bezel. In 1989 the GMT Master II was introduced with a quick set hour hand which could be adjusted as a timezone was crossed. The classic models were discontinued in 2007. Given the enormous length of the model’s history, this model has featured in many iconic films and on celebrities including: Clint Eastwood, Marlon Brando, Honor Blackman (as Pussy galore), Bruce Reynolds, Tom Selleck (as Magnum PI), Che Guevera, Jackie Stewart and many NASA astronauts.
