Quick message from the seller. 

“Here at Prestige Watches UK we believe a watch is far more than just a simple teller of time. It is a real-life companion that will emote feelings of happiness and joy through your life journey.

If one day gifted to that special ‘someone’, a treasured watch will pass sentiment and meaning to the hands of others like few other gifts can achieve”

Our mission here at Prestige Watches is to spread ‘Watch Happiness’ around the world and promote the feelings of joy that come with buying a new watch.

Here’s your chance to be the new owner of this highly sought-after Rolex GMT Master II.

The Rolex GMT Master has managed over the years to not only maintain its popularity but become even more coveted in the minds of Rolex fans. 

Almost regal in appearance it is a universally appreciated timepiece, with a wide-reaching global appeal with its highly distinctive smouldering two-tone steel and gold tobacco tinted colours. The deep lustre of the brown dial means it is also sometimes referred to as Tiger Eye.

Having already conquered the seas with the Submariner and the mountains with the Explorer. It was only a matter of time before Rolex took over the skies too and the Rolex GMT-Master made its debut in 1954 at a time when Intercontinental travel by commercial airline was starting to take off.

GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time and the watch was unique at the time as it enabled flight crews to read different time zones at a glance.

This model is widely known as the “Root Beer” for its slight resemblance to a frothy mug of the famous soda drink of the same name and features a rich bronze coloured dial with luminescent dot hour markers and a date window. 

The eye-catching 18ct yellow gold bi-directional bezel has a striking 2-tone aluminium bezel insert which is used to tell the second timezone. This timepiece is presented on a brushed polished stainless steel Oyster bracelet with 18ct yellow gold centre links.

The first sports watch released by Rolex to feature stainless steel and gold, the GMT Master II “Root Beer” is a firm favourite for Rolex fans and is becoming increasingly rarer making this a desirable purchase and worthy investment.

Rolex eventually discontinued the Root Beer GMT-Master II Ref 16713 in 2006 with many wondering if this unique watch would ever return to the collection – which it did 12 years later with the latest revision 126711CHNR, with its chunkier case, Cerachrom bezel black dial and of course, movement updates.

Personally, I prefer the thinner, more slimline look and fit of the vintage models.
