ROLEX GMT REF. 116710LN
Fine stainless steel self winding wristwatch with 2 time zones, black dial and date. With its original papers.
The Rolex GMT-Master was created in 1954 for the airplane pilots.
Pan Am, the first major Rolex customer and the world’s leading airline company at that time, ordered from Rolex a watch capable of reading a second time zone.
Rolex takes up the challenge and proposes a watch with an additional hand and a 24 h bezel to be able to read a second time zone.
Aircrew and travelling businessmen were delighted on their intercontinental journeys.
The proposed model is a modern and redesigned version of the GMT-Master, the reference 116710LN from 2009. A superb watch that keeps its promises in terms of robustness and reliability. It is a round stainless steel case of 40 mm diameter with a 24-hour graduated black ceramic bezel. Black dial with luminescent round circled indexes. Mercedes hands and central second hand. Date window at 3. Self-winding mechanical movement, chronometer certified.
Here is a model rich in history and passion. A watch that has been able to meet the expectations of aviation professionals and globetrotters of all kinds.
A watch in perfect condition, proposed with its original papers.
