rolex gmt master ii Rolex GMT-Master II

After giving us our first look at the $27,000 Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42Rolex has unveiled a new piece of wrist-bound steez: the 2019 GMT-Master II.

The three new GMT-Master IIs are designed for those who travel the globe, featuring a bidirectional rotatable bezel in either blue/black or dark red/navy color combinations. The watch can display time in two time zones simultaneously, thanks to its distinctly colored "home" 24-hour hand.

The Oystersteel used on the blue model is corrosion resistant and the sapphire crystal all three models is scratch resistant. But for true luxury, the two red-bezeled models come in 18-karat gold. The most expensive of the three GMT-Master IIs also comes with a meteorite dial with white gold hour markers.

The GMT-Master II is outfitted with Rolex's new calibre 3285 movement, a certified Swiss chronometer with a power reserve of approximately 70 hours that was built on the back of 10 patent applications made over the course of its development.

The blue-bezel, black-dial Oystersteel GMT-Master II costs €8,400 (approximately $9,500), the red-bezel, navy-dial white gold GMT-Master II costs €33,400 (approximately $38,000), and the red-bezel, meteorite-dial white gold GMT-Master II costs €34,900 (approximately $39,700). For more information, head here.
