Rolex GMT II ref 16710 “Swiss Only” circa 1998

$11,000.00

Rolex GMT II ref 16710 stainless steel dual time zone model with independently set hour hand serial # U circa 1998. Featuring a 40mm diameter case with red and black so called “Coke” bezel, sapphire crystal, and original gloss black dial. The dial on this GMT is interesting as it features the “SWISS” only signature at 6 o’clock designating it’s use of Luminova indexes and hands, as opposed to tritium which was discontinued the year before. These so-called “Swiss Only” dials were made solely in 1998 and 1999, making them a rare variant of 16710.

With Rolex stainless steel heavy Oyster 78790 bracelet with 501B end links and flip lock clasp. Recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouces, a $55 value!

Note some small abrasions in the original ruby and black 24 hour insert, commensurate with wear of this 22 year old watch.

Brand

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
