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 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.

Rolex has pioneered the development of special ceramics for monobloc bezels and bezel inserts that are exceptionally resistant to scratches and corrosion, and offer particularly intense colours that are unaffected by ultraviolet rays. The new GMT-Master II version has a red and blue ceramic insert which represents the most iconic of all GMT-Masters since it launched in 1955.

In addition to the conventional hour, minute and second hands, which display the local time at the wearer’s current location, the watch features arrow-tipped hand which circles the dial once every 24 hours. When the bezel is in the neutral position, that is with the triangle at 12 o’clock, the 24-hour hand displays the reference time, or home time.
The Oyster case represents a symbol of waterproofness to a depth of 100 metres, and the crystal Cyclops lens i/o crystal lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof i/o scratch-proof sapphire.

In function as well as in name, the GMT-Master II evokes intercontinental travel across time zones. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) marks mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London.

Originally designed to aid airline pilots in their navigation, the GMT-Master has become an unmistakable icon. Its emblematic bezel is a signature feature of its unique and instantly recognisable aesthetics.

劳力士宣布推出专业旗舰表 GMT-Master II 之三款新版本,搭配新一代的 calibre 3285 机芯以及全新外型。新版本的蚝式钢有双向可旋转的边框,还有24小时刻度,并锲入红蓝双色的 Cerachrom陶瓷表圈。蚝式外壳的凸耳和侧边历经重新设计,安置固定在五格链节纪念型 (Jubilee) 表带上。

至于劳力士率先开发的特殊陶瓷材质,适用于整体边框和镶板,具备抗划痕和腐蚀能力,并且确保色彩不受强烈紫外线影响。全新 GMT-Master II 版有红蓝双色 Cerachrom 陶质字圈,这是自1955年推出以来最具代表性的 GMT-Masters。

除了以传统的时、分和秒针显示佩戴者所在区域的当地时间,手表的特点是有箭头的指针,每24小时循着表盘转动一次,当表圈在中间段,即12点的三角形,24小时指针会指向参考时间或本土时间。

蚝式表壳具备 100 公尺深度的防水特质,晶莹剔透的 Cyclops lens 水晶镜片在3点钟部位可以轻松读取日期,由坚硬的防刮蓝宝石水晶构成。

而在功能性名义方面,GMT-Master II 可唤起跨时区洲际旅行。格林威治标准时间(GMT)指的是伦敦格林威治皇家天文台的太阳时间。

从最初设计目的是协助飞行员进行导航,如今 GMT-Master 却成为一个明确的图标。深具创新性的边框是独一无二、识别力度高的美学特征。
