  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched at Baselworld in 2018, the GMT-Master II in everose gold it was an instant success, an instant new icon.

    The everose gold was introduced by Rolex in 2005 and consists in an alloy of yellow gold, copper and platinum. Adding platinum in the classic combination will allow the gold to keep its pinkish finish and not turn into a more yellowish color over the years.

    The present model is fitted with caliber 3285. The new movement developed by Rolex has an increased power reserve, circa 70 hours, identifiable by the Coronet at 6 o’ clock between Swiss and Made.

  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    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.
