The Rolex GMT Master II is probably Rolex’s best made watch today and is often seen worn by famous tennis champion Roger Federer. It is also highly regarded by famed watch collector and music genius John Mayer particularly because of its reasonable price ($8,900 msrp) and exceptional 3186 movement developed entirely by Rolex. Besides the conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, it features a 24-hour hand to display a second time zone. It also features a day of the month window at 3 o’clock. It is a certified Swiss chronometer and features a parachrom hairspring to resist shocks and temperature variations.
It has a 24-hour rotatable bezel and it has an hour hand that can be adjusted forwards or backwards independently of the minute and seconds hands. This is fantastic for travelers that need to adapt to a new time zone without affecting the precision of their timekeeping. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with cyclops lens over the date and triplock triple waterproof screw down winding crown provide 330 feet of water resistance. The superalloy 904L steel case and oyster bracelet provide strength, resistance to corrosion, a highly polishable surface, and durability to make this Rolex last for many years without fear of leading a sporty lifestyle.
The black dial is the distinctive face type responsible for easy readability. The 18 ct gold hour markers prevent tarnishing. The GMT Master II provides about 48 hours of power reserve.
