GMT-Master II

Across time zones

GMT-Master II

In function as well as in name, the Oyster Perpetual GMT‑Master II evokes long-distance travel across time zones.

Bidirectional rotatable bezel

The bezel was carefully designed to ideally fulfil its function. Rolex developed a bezel rotation system with a trigonal spring that allows the bezel to be turned crisply and securely in either direction and locate with a positive click in each of the 24 different hour positions.

The bezel can be turned with ease thanks to its knurled edge, which offers excellent grip.

Bracelets and clasps

Introduced in the late 1930s, this robust metal bracelet with its flat three-piece links remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster Perpetual collection. The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable.
Supple and comfortable, the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet was specially created for the Datejust, launched in 1945.
On the GMT-Master II, these bracelets are equipped with a Rolex-designed, patented Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening. They are additionally fitted with the Easylink comfort extension link, developed by the brand, which allows the wearer to easily adjust their length by approximately 5 mm, providing additional comfort in any circumstance.

An original version

In 2022, Rolex presented a novel, unexpected version of the GMT-Master II. Its winding crown and crown guard are positioned on the left side of the case. This required changing the precision testing process for some of the final controls carried out as part of the Superlative Chronometer certification. The date aperture and the Cyclops lens have also moved and appear at 9 o’clock. The two-colour Cerachrom bezel insert in green and black ceramic provides a colour combination that has never before been seen on the model.

Exclusive combinations

The GMT-Master II is exclusively available in Oystersteel, 18 kt white or Everose gold, as well as in an Everose Rolesor version.

The 18 kt Everose gold and Everose Rolesor versions feature a bezel with a Cerachrom insert in a black and brown ceramic. On the dial of these versions, the name “GMT-Master II” is inscribed in powdered rose.

The 18 kt white gold version is available with a meteorite dial, while the 18 kt yellow gold and the yellow Rolesor versions feature a Cerachrom bezel insert in grey and black ceramic.

Calibre 3285
A movement made for travellers

The GMT-Master II houses calibre 3285, a movement that allows travellers to easily adjust their local time via the winding crown, without stopping the watch or affecting the 24-hour hand. As a result, people can simultaneously read their local time as well as the time “back home”. The date change is linked to the traditional hour hand (local time).
