The 126710blnr Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in Oystersteel with a Jubilee bracelet.
This 126710blnr model features a black dial and a two-colour Cerachrom bezel insert in blue and black ceramic. Designed to show the time in two different time zones simultaneously during intercontinental flights, the 126710blnr GMT-Master II has come to be recognized for its robustness and versatile appearance.
126710blnr 24-HOUR ROTATABLE BEZEL
In addition to conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, the GMT-Master II features an arrow-tipped hand, which circles the dial once every 24 hours, as well as a bidirectional rotatable 24-hour graduated bezel. The distinctively coloured 24-hour hand displays the “home” reference time in a first time zone which can be read on the graduations on the bezel. The traveller’s local time is easily set by “jumping” from hour to hour, thanks to an ingenious mechanism operated via the winding crown: the hour hand can be adjusted forwards or backwards independently of the minute and seconds hands. This allows travellers to adapt to their new time zone without affecting the precision of their timekeeping.
126710blnr BLACK DIAL
HIGH LEGIBILITY IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
Like all Rolex Professional watches, the 126710blnr GMT-Master II offers exceptional legibility in all circumstances, and especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display. The broad hands and hour markers in simple shapes – triangles, circles, rectangles – are filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting glow.
HIGHLY RESISTANT TO CORROSION
Rolex uses Oystersteel for its steel watch cases. Specially developed by the brand, 126710blnr Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family, alloys most commonly used in high-technology and in the aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential. 126710blnr Oystersteel is extremely resistant, offers an exceptional finish once polished and maintains its beauty even in the harshest environments.
126710blnr THE JUBILEE BRACELET
SUPPLE AND COMFORTABLE
This version of the GMT-Master II is fitted with a Jubilee bracelet. Supple and comfortable, the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet was specially created for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust model in 1945. The Jubilee bracelet on this model is equipped with a Rolex-designed and -patented Oysterlock folding safety clasp, which prevents accidental opening. It also features the Easylink comfort extension link, developed by the brand, which allows the bracelet length to be increased by approximately 5 mm. A concealed attachment system ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case.
126710blnr TWO TIME ZONES
With traditional hour, minute and seconds hands, 126710blnr a triangle-tipped 24-hour hand, and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert, the GMT-Master II can display the time in two time zones simultaneously: either the local time and the reference time, or the local time and that of an alternative time zone. The date, at 3 o’clock on the dial, is synchronized with the local time.
126710blnr THE CYCLOPS LENS
A MAGNIFYING LENS
The 126710blnr Cyclops lens is one of the most distinctive Rolex features, and one of the most recognizable. Named after the one-eyed giant of Greek mythology, the Cyclops lens magnifies the watch’s emblematic date display two and a half times for easy reading. Behind the Cyclops, as with every feature of a Rolex timepiece, lies a history of invention, research and development, and the endless search for perfection.
126710blnr 3285 MOVEMENT
The new calibre 3285, a new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. With 10 patent applications filed over the course of its development, this movement features a Chronergy escapement and a guaranteed power reserve of approximately 70 hours. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3285 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. The 3285 is equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, offering greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. Its architecture, in common with 126710blnr all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.
