This year, the Greenwich-Master II (GMT-Master II) launched two new models of gold steel and 18K gold, with a gray and black two-color Cerachrom ceramic word ring; the new color is eye-catching.
In the two new works of Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II released by Rolex, 18K gold material returns to this series gorgeously. The first version is in Rolex (a combination of Oystersteel and yellow gold), while the second is cast entirely in 18K yellow gold.
There is no shortage of similarities between the two best fake watches. First, both are equipped with a one-piece Cerachrom gray and black two-color ceramic 24-hour scale word circle, which is renewed in a new color scheme. The “GMT-Master II” (Greenwich-Master II) designation on the dial is powder-coated yellow. The new watch has a commemorative strap, an Oyster safety clasp, and an easy-to-adjust link extension system.
The new GMT-Master II is equipped with advanced watchmaking technology 3285 movements, which can display the time in another time zone in a 24-hour format and accurately display hours, minutes, seconds, and dates.
Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II is certified as a Superlative Chronometer, ensuring the eye performs exceptionally well.
One watch, multiple time zones
The Greenwich-Master was initially launched to help professional pilots use their watches to aid navigation during long-distance flights. After that, this watch gradually became the favorite choice of travelers. The design of the eye is unique and easy to identify. It has a bidirectional rotating outer ring and a 24-hour scale word circle. It is also available with a variety of two-color word circles. The watch is also available with monochrome word circles. As a functional watch, the GMT-Master has been continuously improved over the years, and its technical performance has constantly been improved. In 1982, Rolex launched the GMT-Master II, equipped with a movement that allows the hour hand to be adjusted independently, unlike other indicators.
With traditional hour, minute, and second hands, a triangular arrow 24-hour hand, and a bidirectional rotating bezel with a 24-hour scale Cerachrom ceramic insert, the GMT-Master II can simultaneously display the time in two time zones: both the local time and the time at the same time. The departure time can also simultaneously read the local time and the time in the third time zone. The calendar display is synchronized with the local time.
Rolex has repeatedly created a precedent in the development of ceramic technology. With its superb technology, it has developed a one-piece ceramic outer ring and ceramic word circle. These materials are not only scratch-resistant but also resistant to environmental influences. The high-tech ceramic word circle is made of chemical substances that are extremely difficult to erode. After years of intensive research and development, Rolex has developed a set of unique expertise and innovative equipment and production processes, so it can independently produce ceramic components. The new GMT-Master II has a bi-directional rotating outer ring and a 24-hour graduated bezel in Cerachrom gray and black two-tone ceramic. Die-cast indexes and numerals are coated with gold using PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating technology. The outer ring tooth edge lets the wearer grasp and quickly rotate the outer ring.
Rolesor gold meets steel.
Rolex registered Rolesor (gold steel) as a trademark in 1933. The combination of gold and Oystersteel has become one of the iconic features of Rolex watches. It is the union of two metals: gold, noble and precious; lustrous and stable; steel, unbreakable, robust, and reliable. These characteristics perfectly demonstrate the elegance and excellent performance of Rolex watches.
The bezel, winding crown, and central links of the bracelet of the new GMT-Master II in yellow steel are all cast in yellow gold; the middle case, case back, and side links of the bracelet are released in Oystersteel.
Oyster case, a symbol of water resistance
Guaranteed water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet), the 40mm Oyster case of the new GMT-Master II is a paragon of robustness and reliability. The middle case of the series models is cast from a solid block of Oystersteel or 18K yellow gold. Rolex watchmakers use brand-specific special tools to tighten the finely grooved bottom cover to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. The three-button lock winding crown has a triple waterproof system firmly screwed to the case. Crown shoulders are integrated into the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror surface is made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which is hard to scratch. There is a small window convex lens at 3 o’clock for easy calendar reading. The waterproof Oyster case of the watch gives the movement the best protection.
Caliber 3285 Perpetual movement
The new GMT-Master II is equipped with the caliber 3285, launched in 2018, entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex, and equipped in this series of watches in the same year. This self-winding mechanical movement embodies the superb technology of Rolex and is outstanding in terms of precision, reliability, power reserve, and ease of use.
The hairspring remains stable even with temperature changes and has excellent shock resistance. The hairspring is also equipped with a Rolex end ring to ensure the movement maintains regular operation in any position. The balance spring assembly of the action is fitted with the high-performance Paraflex cushioning device designed and patented by Rolex to improve the shock resistance of the movement. The automatic rotor is equipped with enhanced ball bearings.
Caliber 3285 has a perpetual automatic winding system, and an eternal oscillating weight winds the movement. The barrel’s structure and the escapement’s excellent efficiency give the caliber 3285 a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
Commemorative bracelet with Oyster safety clasp
The new GMT-Master II comes with a commemorative bracelet. The flexible and comfortable five-link strap was specially designed and released by Rolex for the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945.
The commemorative strap of the new watch is equipped with a folding Oyster safety buckle to prevent the pin from being accidentally opened. The strap is fitted with the easy-to-adjust link extension system developed by Rolex, and the wearer can easily extend the strap by about 5 mm. The belt of the 18K gold model is embedded with a patented ceramic component designed by the brand, which is more flexible and durable.
Superlative Chronometer Certification
Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II also has the Superlative Chronometer certification established by Rolex in 2015. This unique designation certifies that each eye has successfully passed a series of tests in the Rolex laboratory. In addition, the movements of these watches are also certified by the swiss replica Official Chronometer Testing Center (COSC). The look is tested after it is assembled, and the action is installed in the case to ensure that the watch can perform excellently in precision, power reserve, waterproof and automatic winding when worn. The average error of the Rolex Superlative Chronometer is within plus or minus two seconds per day. The precision pursued by Rolex is much higher than the standard of precision timepieces certified by the Swiss Official Observatory.
The green seal symbolizes the precision timepieces of the Superlative Observatory. This seal accompanies every Rolex watch and comes with a five-year global warranty.
