As you can see presented in excellent condition is this GMT Master II aka the (Batman). This modern Rolex is in beautiful original condition and with the desirable 'Black/Blue' cerachrom bezel.
The calibre 3186 chronometer movement is in superb condition and is keeping excellent time. This movement has been well cared for over the years which winds and sets smoothly as you would expect.
Officially first released in 2013 at Basel World with its patented blue and black cerachom bezel. Cerachom (Rolex's own version of ceramic) was introduced on the GMT first in 2005. And for years, we were told that making a two-tone ceramic anything was impossible. But for 2013, Rolex has gone and built a mono-block cerachrom bezel by a patented process that actually has the bezel start off as completely blue, while adding the black colouring process after. This isn't two pieces of ceramic next to each other, it's a singular piece, and Rolex is the only brand in the world to have firstly produced something like this. The numerals in this two-tone, mono-block bezel are actually a thin layer of platinum, while the bezel itself is diamond-polished.
While the original GMT was launched in the mid 1950s and has always had a two-tone bezel (for easy indication of day vs night), it has never had one that was at once both blue and black. The 116710BLNR GMT-Master II remains 40mm in size and houses the excellent Rolex calibre 3186, with parachrom hairspring and Breguet overcoil. The dial is black lacquer while the Chromolight appliques and hands are 18k white gold. The bracelet is reference 78200, which is an Oyster made of 904L steel with polished centre links. It comes with an Easy-link 5mm comfort extension clasp.
The watch has also been checked against the watch register and has come back all clear with no issues.
