The GMT-Master II 116710BLNR is a very popular watch in Rolex’s collection. In fact, it is one of the most popular watches that Rolex offers, obviously with the Submariner in the number one spot. The 11710BLNR has a very appealing two-colored bezel which gives it a beautiful look. The color makes it stand out, yet in a subtle way. The two-colored bezel actually has a purpose apart from just looking good, and that is to help the wearer separate day from night, and instantly be able to know what time it is.
The GMT-Master II was first made for pilots for Panam (Pan American Airways). These pilots needes a watch that would be able to show two time zones simultaneously during their long-haul, and therefore, Rolex developed the first GMT-Master timepiece ref 6542 made in collaboration with Panam.
