THE PILOT’S WATCH

THE GMT-MASTER II

The GMT-Master, introduced in 1955, was developed to meet the needs of intercontinental airline pilots, and proved invaluable to those whose professions involve long-distance travel. Featuring a rotatable 24-hour graduated bezel and a separate 24-hour hand, it allows those who travel the world to read two different time zones simultaneously, and up to three by turning the rotatable bezel.

STYLE OF THE GMT-MASTER II

KEEPING PACE WITH CHANGING TIMES

Although the GMT-Master II was designed essentially for professional pilots, its combination of peerless functionality and rugged good looks has attracted a wider travelling public. As well as appreciating its ability to display different time zones, these travellers admire the robustness and versatile appearance that make the GMT‑Master II eminently suitable for globetrotting and, indeed, for any occasion.

FEATURES OF THE GMT-MASTER II

24-HOUR DISPLAY AND INDEPENDENT HOUR HAND

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 a second time zone, which can be read on the graduated the bezel.

3186 MOVEMENT

The GMT-Master II is equipped with calibre 3186, a self‑winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. In addition to the conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, it features a 24-hour hand to display a second time zone. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3186 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests.

FEATURES OF THE GMT-MASTER II

CERACHROM BEZEL

Manufactured by Rolex from an extremely hard ceramic material, the exclusive Cerachrom bezel insert and monobloc bezel have excellent anti-corrosion properties and keep their vibrant colours over time. They are virtually scratchproof, and are unaffected by exposure to sunlight as well as to chlorinated or sea water.
