GMT Master Ref.16700

€14.500 EUR

Rolex began its GMT-Master story in 1955 with its very first pilot watch made for Pan Am Airlines, the reference 6542. More than four decades later, the Swiss watchmaker concluded that chapter with its last GMT-Master watch – the ref. 16700. Of course, the Rolex pilot watch saga continues today with the GMT-Master II collection, but the original Rolex GMT-Master is no more.

In 1988 ushered in the arrival of the GMT-Master ref. 16700 with a handful of developments such as sapphire crystal, a dial with applied white gold indexes, and a new movement. However, it is interesting to note that Rolex already introduced the GMT-Master II model five years before the release of the GMT-Master 16700. Having both versions of the pilot’s watch available at the same time was just a matter of economics. The GMT-Master ref. 16700 offered an almost identical look to the GMT-Master II ref. 16710 model but at a lower price point. The main difference between the GMT-Master and the GMT-Master II is the way they function, which we’ll discuss in detail further below.

The Rolex GMT-Master ref. 16700 was in production for a decade until it was discontinued in 1999. And its discontinuation marked the end of the GMT-Master era and paved the way for the GMT-Master II to become Rolex’s flagship pilot’s watch.
