The GMT-Master is one of Rolex’s most iconic professional models, along with the Submariner, Daytona and Explorer.

Its history is closely tied to the aviation industry.

The GMT-Master was developed in 1955 as a navigational device to show the time in two time zones for professional pilots who flew around the world in all directions.

It was famously used by the American airline Pan American Airways (Pan Am Airways) as its official watch, but has also been a favorite of NASA and U.S. Air Force pilots and international businessmen.

The GMT-Master II was introduced in 1982 as the successor to the GMT-Master I and is capable of displaying three time zones.

This watch, Ref. 16710, was the second model of the GMT-Master II and was produced from 1990 to 2007.

It was only available with a red-black bezel (a.k.a. “Coke”) for the duration of the GMT-Master I line up, and after 1999, when the GMT-Master I was discontinued, it was also available in black, red-blue (a.k.a. “Pepsi”).

The vivid two-tone red-blue Pepsi bezel is one of the most popular GMT-Master models.

This piece was produced in 2000 and has tritium luminescent paint and an integrated flush fit on the bracelet.

The case has been lightly polished. There is no weight loss.

Compared to the current model, the lugs are narrower and sharper looking than the current model, so despite the same case size, it feels a bit smaller on the wrist in person, even in photos.

The current model with ceramic bezel is also attractive, but it has a good overall form and a good vintage look.
If you are interested in this part of the world, I highly recommend it.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.

About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
