While the GMT-Master model was born as an absolute tool watch, Rolex soon began to manufacture examples in precious metal for a lavish touch. Cased in 18K yellow gold, the present timepiece is a representative of the “luxury evolution” of the GMT-Master series. The present watch features the coveted “nipple dial”, the nickname deriving from the shape of the dot indexes. The deep gold hue of the case is magnifcent, and the copper brown dial is masterfully executed. This alternation of warm gold tones and dark brown hues impart to the timepiece a remarkable aesthetics and perfect legibility.
