  • Catalogue Essay

    Debuted at the Baselworld 2007, the Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116710LN (Lunette Noir – Black Bezel), was the first GMT-Master II reference to feature a Cerachrom bezel, a newly designed case and bracelet. With a distinct appeal, the reference was the only GMT-Master reference to feature a green 24-Hour hand and its model name inscribed in the respective color. The reference was discontinued in 2018 making way for the new ref. 126710BLRO.

    The present Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116710LN is certainly not the usual example. Featuring an engraved caseback of the “Khanjar”, the present example was commissioned by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos. Very well-preserved with all its factory protective stickers intact, the present “New Old Stock” example is complete with its original guarantee stamped by Khimji Ramdas which has been the official retailer of Rolex in Muscat, Oman since the 1960’s.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
