  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced at the Baselworld 2013, the Rolex GMT-Master ref. 116710BLNR was a first of its kind featuring a never seen before blue and black Cerachrom bezel insert. Extremely well-received by collectors at an immediate glance, the model earned its nickname the “Batman” for its obvious color combinations. One of the most desirable Rolex sports models in recent times, the “Batman” is with no doubt a modern classic among its former references.

    Discontinued in 2019 and making way for the new ref. 126710BLNR equipped with a new cal. 3285, the present example ref. 116710BLNR is certainly one of the last examples produced with a guarantee card dated October 2019 before it was discontinued. Offered in excellent overall condition the present example is further accompanied by its full set of 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.
