The Rolex GMT-Master II 126710BLNR was introduced to the collectors' great delight in 2019. It was the second fat-cased GMT Master II model to be fitted with a Jubilée bracelet and now bearing the highly popular 'Batman' black and blue bezel. A development of the previous generation 126710BLNR with an Oyster bracelet, it is one of the most sought-after timepieces on today's market


The model is in fact an upgrade over the reference 116710 and encases the newly introduced calibre 3285, increasing the power reserve to 70 hours within a tolerance of -2/+2 seconds per day. The movement features increased antimagnetic and shock resisting properties.


Due to the delicate process of finding any available example at authorised dealers, the present lot represents a great opportunity to acquire an excessively waitlisted instant classic.
