The Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126711CHNR is featured in an Everose Rolesor version – a combination of Oystersteel and 18ct Everose gold. It features a 24-hour hand and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with a 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert in black and brown ceramic, allowing two time zones to be read at once.
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126711CHNR
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref 126711CHNR is introducing Everose Rolesor to the range for the very first time. On the dial the name “GMT-Master II” is inscribed in powdered rose, a first time for the range. The bezel is fitted with two-colour Cerachrom inserts in a black and newly developed brown ceramic. This new version is equipped with the new-generation calibre 3285, at the forefront of watchmaking technology. With 10 patent applications filed over the course of its development, the movement is equipped with a Chronergy escapement and guarantees a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
Rolex GMT-Master II
The Rolex GMT-Master was originally designed for professional use to aid airline pilots. However, its combination of peerless functionality and instantly recognizable aesthetics has attracted a wider audience of world travellers. Designed to show the time in two different time zones simultaneously during intercontinental flights, the GMT‑Master has come to be recognized for its robustness and versatile appearance. The GMT-Master II evokes intercontinental travel across time zones. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) marks mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London — the location of the original meridian used for calculating longitude and determining different time zones around the world.
Gold is coveted for its lustre and nobility. Steel reinforces strength and reliability. Together, they harmoniously combine the best of their properties. A true Rolex signature, Rolesor has featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s, and was trademarked as a name in 1933. It is one of the prominent pillars of the Oyster collection. Rolesor is the story of the auspicious meeting of two materials on a single Rolex watch: the juxtaposition of gold and steel with their contrasting colours and radiance, in subtly balanced harmony.
To preserve the beauty of its pink gold watches, Rolex created and patented a new alloy that it casts in its own foundry: Everose gold, which owes its unique colour – a pink hue unlike any other – to its composition. Introduced in 2005, it is used on all Rolex pink gold watches, as well as on a special blend of materials, the Everose Rolesor.
The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. Characterised by hour markers fashioned from 18 ct gold to prevent tarnishing, every Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection.
The Oyster bracelet
The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable. It is equipped with an Oysterlock folding clasp, which prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link, also exclusive to Rolex. This ingenious system allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, providing additional comfort in any circumstance.
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126711CHNR is equipped with the new calibre 3285, a new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. With 10 patent applications filed over the course of its development, this self-winding mechanical movement is a consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, at the forefront of the art of watchmaking. Calibre 3285 offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. It incorporates the Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, this escapement is also insensitive to magnetic interference. An optimized blue Parachrom hairspring is fitted to the oscillator, the true heart of the watch. Manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, it is up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
Calibre 3285 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. Thanks to its new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3285 extends to approximately 70 hours.
A 24-hour rotatable bezel
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 the “home” reference time in a first time zone which can be read on the graduations on the bezel. The traveller’s local time is easily set by “jumping” from hour to hour, thanks to an ingenious mechanism operated via the winding crown: the hour hand can be adjusted forwards or backwards independently of the minute and seconds hands. This allows travellers to adapt to their new time zone without affecting the precision of their timekeeping.
Rolex GMT-Master II and Roland-Garros
The slow clay surface of Roland-Garros produces long, absorbing rallies and places huge physical and mental demands on players. To reign supreme here, a champion must prevail in seven tough rounds and muster vast reserves of skill, patience and endurance. The second Grand Slam® event of the season is staged in Paris over two weeks in late May and early June and dates back to 1891.
The 2019 edition marks the start of Rolex’s special relationship as its Premium Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch. Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126711CHNR became official watch of the prestige tennis tournament Roland-Garros 2019. Discover more about the event on the link.
