711Z GMT Master
Limited Edition

Minimum 50% deposit required on purchase.

The 711Z respectfully honors the watch that etched Rolex’s place in global travel history; the ref 6542 GMT-Master.  Used by commercial pilots and world travelers alike, the multiple time-zone capability of this iconic timepiece proved invaluable on transatlantic flights during the golden age of flight in the mid 1950’s.

The 711Z represents a respectful fusion of the current model 116710 GMT-Master II with the iconic design of the original “Bakelite” 6542.

The gilt dial is fabricated using old-world techniques which result in true negative-relief gilt that is a hallmark of the early Rolex sport models. While the brittle bakelite bezel of the original 6542 is an iconic feature, our modern interpretation results in a polished insert, sculpted from clear, scratch-resistant sapphire - exposing hand-applied luminescent numerals and indicators which dovetails with the re-profiled coin-edge bezel. A lower profile Rolex crown/tube replaces the beefy 704 of the 116710 and beautifully complements the thinner, lug-holed case.  The custom “small arrow” GMT hand brings back a quintessential feature of the earliest Rolex GMT models.
