BASELWORLD 2018 For the very first time, the bezel with a graduated,two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic is available on the GMT-Master II in Oystersteel, with a Jubilee bracelet. OYSTERSTEEL,RED AND BLUE CERAMIC, JUBILEE BRACELET,The first of the new GMT-Master II versions introduced in 2018 is in Oystersteel. It is fitted onto a five-link Jubilee bracelet, also in Oystersteel, and has a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic – calling to mind the colours used on the original GMT-Master in 1955. It is the first time that the Jubilee bracelet, Oystersteel and the two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic have been brought together on the GMT-Master II. CALIBRE 3285,With 10 patent applications filed over the course of its development, this self-winding mechanical movement is a consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, at the forefront of the art of watchmaking. Calibre 3285 offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetism, convenience and reliability. Calibre 3285 incorporates the Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. Originally designed to aid airline pilots in their navigation, the

GMT-Master has become an unmistakable icon. Over the years its emblematic bezel has been presented in various colours, in both single and two-coloured combinations. It is the signature feature of its unique and instantly recognizable aesthetics. With a traditional hour, minute and seconds display via hands; a 24-hour hand; and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with a 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert, it is possible to read the time in two time zones at once: either the local time and a reference time, or the local time and another time zone as desired. The date, shown at 3 o’clock, is synchronized with the local time display. The cosmopolitan watch par excellence, the Oyster Perpetual

GMT-Master II allows travellers to read the time in two different time zones simultaneously. Precise, reliable, robust and functional, it is a reference among watches with multiple time zones.

At Baselworld 2018, Rolex is introducing three new versions of the

GMT-Master II with a brand new movement, the new-generation calibre 3285, and a new image. The first new version, in Oystersteel, is equipped with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic. The lugs and sides of its Oyster case have been redesigned, and the watch is fitted on a five-link Jubilee bracelet.



 



Two other versions of the GMT-Master II introduce 18 ct Everose gold to the range for the very first time. The first is crafted entirely from this refined, exclusive alloy, and the second is available in an Everose Rolesor version, combining Oystersteel and 18 ct Everose gold.



 



On the dials of both watches, the name “GMT-Master II” is inscribed in powdered rose. The bezels are fitted with two-colour Cerachrom inserts in a black and newly developed brown ceramic.

It is the first time that the Jubilee bracelet, Oystersteel and the two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic have been brought together on the GMT-Master II.



 



The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master has been equipped with the Oyster case since its conception. This case is one of the definitive elements of a Rolex watch, with exemplary shock-resistance and waterproofness. In addition, for easy reading of the date, the crystal is fitted with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock – another Rolex innovation. As of 1959, a crown guard has been stamped as an integral part of the middle case to protect the winding crown. Although the original GMT-Master was fitted onto an Oyster bracelet, over time some variants have featured the celebrated Jubilee bracelet that was launched in 1945. Mastering the use of ceramics has enabled Rolex to equip its watches with cutting-edge ceramic bezel inserts and monobloc bezels. This expertise, the result of applied internal research and the creation of a manufacturing process unique to Rolex, heralded the beginning of a new era for the brand. In 2005, Rolex unveiled its first watch with a ceramic insert: an Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in 18 ct yellow gold with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 24-hour graduated insert in black ceramic.



In 2013, Rolex introduced an Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II with a two-colour Cerachrom insert in blue and black ceramic, and a year later, the watch was released with a two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic. Each two-colour combination on a single-piece ceramic component was a world first.



Today, the palette ranges from brown, a colour introduced in 2018, to black, green, blue, chestnut brown and red. Clear, deep and intense, these coloured ceramics bring a unique vibrancy to the watches.



 



With 10 patent applications filed over the course of its development, this self-winding mechanical movement is a consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, at the forefront of the art of watchmaking. Calibre 3285 offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetism, convenience and reliability. Calibre 3285 incorporates the Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference.



 



Launched in 1955, the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master witnessed the rapid expansion of intercontinental travel in the latter half of the 20th century. It even became the official watch of Pan American World Airways, better known worldwide as Pan Am, the most prominent American intercontinental airline at the time.



In 1959, a major event marked the partnership: the first non-stop Pan Am Jet Clipper flight from New York to Moscow. The captain was wearing a

GMT-Master, which was used as a navigation aid during the flight.



The bidirectional rotatable bezel and 24-hour graduated two-colour or single-colour Cerachrom insert are central to the design of the GMT-Master II. On the original 1955 model, the insert was divided into two halves – one red, to correspond with daylight hours, and one blue, for night-time hours.



Over the years, the 24-hour graduated insert has been made available in a range of other colours.



At the beginning, the bezel’s 24-hour graduated insert was made from Plexiglas, with the colours, numerals and graduations painted on the reverse.



In 1959, the Plexiglas was replaced with aluminium, and the colours and inscriptions were created using anodization – an electrochemical process that also increased the metal’s scratch resistance.



On the original GMT-Master, the conventional hour hand, the minutes hand, and the 24-hour hand are synchronized. In 1982, Rolex introduced a new movement that allowed the hour hand to be set independently of the other hands.



To clearly mark this evolution, and to avoid any confusion with the existing GMT-Master watches, the models fitted with the optimized movement were named the GMT-Master II. From then on, using and setting the watch became easier and more intuitive.



In 2005, Rolex replaced the aluminium by ceramic – a further innovation. As a pioneer in the design and creation of ceramic components, the brand developed its own knowledge and expertise to produce its monobloc bezels and ceramic inserts in-house.



For optimal legibility, the numerals and graduations are moulded into the ceramic and then coated with a thin layer of gold or platinum via Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). This exclusive component is virtually scratchproof and is unaffected by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.



Datejust 36



NEW DATEJUST 36 BASELWORLD 2018 The new-generation Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 features redesigned case sides and lugs, and is equipped with cutting-edge calibre 3235.



THE OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST 36 IS THE EPITOME OF THE CLASSIC WATCH, DISTINGUISHED BY ITS TIMELESS STYLE AND EXCEPTIONAL ELEGANCE. Rolex is introducing the new generation of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36, in either Everose Rolesor (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct Everose gold) or yellow Rolesor (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow gold) versions, each available with a large selection of dials. The new Datejust 36 watches are equipped with a 36 mm case featuring redesigned lugs and sides, and calibre 3235, at the forefront of watchmaking technology. TIMELESS STYLE Rolex’s Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion. Launched in 1945, it was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial, and consolidated all the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the modern wristwatch until then. Aesthetically, the Datejust has spanned eras while retaining the enduring codes that today still make it one of the most recognizable of watches. ROLESOR,A MARRIAGE OF GOLD AND OYSTERSTEEL,Rolesor, the combination of gold and steel on a Rolex watch, has been a signature feature of the brand since 1933, when the name was registered. It is an auspicious meeting of two metals: one, noble and precious, attractive for its lustre and stability; the other, highly resistant, known for its strength and reliability. All of these qualities perfectly mirror the elegance and performance that come together in a Rolex watch. On the Everose Rolesor versions of the new Datejust 36, the bezel, winding crown and centre bracelet links are in 18 ct Everose gold, while the case and the outer links of the bracelet are in Oystersteel. The yellow Rolesor versions follow the same principle, using 18 ct yellow gold rather than Everose gold.



Datejust 31



NEW DATEJUST 31 BASELWORLD 2018 The new versions of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 offer a redesigned case and a range of brand new, original dials. They are equipped with new-generation calibre 2236.
