  • Catalogue Essay

    Released at the Baselworld 2014, Rolex introduced then their newest GMT-Master II “Pepsi” which generated a buzz as it was encased in an 18K white gold case stepping away from its traditional stainless steel case.

    Furthermore, another important debut for the model was its “Pepsi” red and blue bezel utilized for the first time, the firm’s patented Cerachrom bezel. While still retaining its iconic colors, the implementation of an 18K white gold case was certainly a luxurious addition to the family, offering wearers an extra heft, the watch maintaining its comfortably snug wrist presence with durability. Discontinued in 2018, Rolex replaced the black dial variant with a blue dial during the same year as the launch of the ref. 126710BLRO.

    The present example Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116719BLRO offered by its original owner is offered in stunning overall condition and accompanied by its full set of accessories.

  • 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.
