New version for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II
Rolex unveiled a new version of the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II made of 904 L steel. It has become an essential tool for flying. This new version not only stars an astonishing design combining the blue of the day with the dark of the night but it is also provided with indispensable characteristics for today’s chronographs: unscratchable and highly waterproof.
Back in 1959, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master became the emblem of the civil aviation golden era when Pan American World Airways decided to use it for their very first non-stop intercontinental flight between New York and Moscow. Following this remarkable journey, it even became the airline official watch.
At the Baselworld 2013, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II 904L Steel new version was brought to light. Thanks to a unique process patented by Rolex, the Cerachrom disc features two colors – blue and black – on the same ceramic block. Provided with a 40mm box, it is hardy and completely waterproof.
From a technical point of view, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II is equipped with a calibre 3186, a manual-winding mechanical movement certified by the Swiss Chronometer Institute, for a higher accuracy.
Highly resistant to external aggression, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II makes a sensational impact on the wrist thanks to a bright design and its Oyster bracelet with 904L solid links.
