Stainless steel Rolex GMT Master II 16710 Pepsi bezel with Rolex service papers.
Originally designed by Rolex in 1954 for the Pan Am pilots, this particular one was made in 1999 and features the iconic red and blue rotating bezel affectionately known as the â€śPepsiâ€ť bezel whereas the red and black bezel is known as the â€śCokeâ€ť bezel.
The difference between the Rolex GMT Master I and the Rolex GMT Master II is that with the GMT Master II you can rotate the hour hand around quicker to set the date more rapidly as well as being able to set three time zones as opposed to the Rolex GMT Master I which can be set to display two time zones. The addition of the red GMT hand combined with the red and black bezel go a long way in giving it such a distinct look.
The Rolex automatic calibre 3185 has 31 jewels and a power reserve of fifty hours. The Rolex GMT Master II 16710 has become an increasingly difficult watch to get in recent years and one of the most highly collectable Rolex watches.
