Rolex 16710 GMT Master II

The 16710 GMT Master II was produced between 1989 and 2007 – this one is from 1990 and so it’s one of the first made and has the Tritium dial and hands and Jubilee bracelet.

Here at Oakleigh Watches, we have always known that the classic Rolex GMT Master II was a definite appreciating asset and prices have gone up and up recently and watches in great condition like this are becoming harder to find.  Prices have been rising steadily for the past few years and they’re showing no sign of slowing.

The main features of the 16710 are all present with this watch including the white gold indexes and sapphire crystal and the dial and hands are superb with no patina or damage whatsoever – it’s all incredibly clean and crisp.

The BLRO ‘Pepsi’ insert is pretty perfect, the case edges are sharp and even and the lugs are thick.  The Jubilee bracelet is very good and has only a little wear – I have to say that this is a superb example of a Rolex GMT Master II – It has undoubtedly been very lightly and very carefully worn.

While the insert fitted to this 2001 Rolex 16710 GMT Master II is a BLRO (Pepsi) insert, we can’t guarantee that this is the original insert that was fitted to the watch  – with this, as with most GMT Masters, there’s no way of telling what colour it was originally.  Of course what this means is that it could very easily be changed for an RONR (Coke) insert if you prefer and we would be happy to do that for you.

It comes with the correct original boxes, the papers and their wallet and all cards and booklets as well as the Swimpruf tag and the Red seal.

The movement has recently been serviced – it has also just been tested by Michlmayr & Co, the movement runs within COSC spec with very strong amplitude and won’t need another service for some years.

Complete with a twelve month warranty, this is an excellent example of a 16710.
