GMT-MASTER II endured all the beating it was given. Rough conditions - heat, dust and vibration from firearms, the watch never failed. Rolex quality is top notch!!
Honored to own this Special Timepiece.
Rolex GMT Master II, Reference 16710A, Red/Black bezel, with the “Error Stick Dial”.
Z-Serial, Circa 2006 and comes as a Full Set.
1-owner, never serviced, case remains unpolished, showing some battle scars, worn in combat in the Middle East. Original Warranty Certificate properly named and dated. True full set down to the purchase reciept, a thank you letter from the Rolex AD-CEO and a copy of his military card. Truly a watch with great provenance.
