Presenting the Rolex GMT Master II, the iconic 16710. This horological delight from 1991 is not merely a testament to Rolex's expertise in crafting world-class timepieces, but it's also a storied artifact that echoes the golden era of aviation.
The 16710 harbours the updated automatic caliber 3185, sold side by side with the 16700 for five years until the 16710 superseded it indefinitely.
Characterised by its bi-colour 'Pepsi' bezel, the 16710 offers a feature that’s both functional and endearing to collectors. Its once vivid red and blue shades, representing day and night respectively, have mellowed over the years, fading to a softer, pastel pair of hues that evoke a sense of nostalgia and an appreciation for the watch's journey through time.
Nestled within this case, the black dial presents a clear, legible display, punctuated by the tritium lume-filled hour markers and Mercedes hands, their glow gently tamed by the patina of age.
This 1991 16710 is as honest as they come, from the original serif bezel insert, to the dial and hands, nothing has been changed, the movement has been lovingly serviced and is ready to be enjoyed by it next owner.
