Rolex GMT-Master II

Following on from the success of the original model, the GMT-Master II arrived in 1982 to massive public and professional acclaim. While aesthetically similar to its predecessor, the updated version features an adjustable hour hand which does not freeze the second or minute hands, allowing for a greater level of accuracy when crossing time zones.
The GMT-Master was created with performance - rather than aesthetics alone - at the front of mind, but due to its quality and style, the public soon fell in love with its robustness and versatility. Whilst retaining the technical specifications of the original, the GMT-Master II has been released with a range of new features, and in various updated styles. Despite this, the model remains effortlessly stylish, and the perfect choice for those with a love for venturing around the globe.
