Lot Essay

Rolex launched the GMT-Master in 1954 in order to provide pilots a watch that could read 24 hour time for a selected time zone. The present example is the latest version of the GMT-Master II from Rolex, with its most distinguished feature, the ceramic black and blue bezel. This watch has gained popularity with collectors and has been nicknamed, the “Batman” because of the black and blue accents. This is the most technologically advanced GMT-Master to be offered by Rolex and would be a great addition to a watch collection.
