  • Catalogue Essay

    One of the three models of the GMT-Master II to make a splash at the 2018 Baselworld, the ref. 126711CHNR is the brand’s first endeavour to use the combination of 18K Everose gold and stainless steel — dubbed by Rolex as Everose Rolesor — for their GMT-Master II.

    Influenced by the nostalgia of the first two-tone vintage model GMT-Master ref. 16753 dating back to the early 1980s nicknamed the “Rootbeer”, the new spin of the present ref. 126711CHNR with the dynamic brown and black Cerachrom appearance was widely adored by collectors. Modernised with versatility, the present example sporting a pleasurable two tone presence is offered in excellent overall condition accompanied by its original guarantee and accessories.

  • 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.
