Since its launch, it has been a popular choice among aviators because of its reliability during long-distance travels. Featuring a rotating 24-hour bezel and a unique 24-hour hand, the watch has excellent time tracking features and the wearer can simultaneously read three different time zones at once. The metal straps come in both gold and platinum finishes while the dark green dials make it stand out in the Rolex watches collection to give it a distinct look. Apart from aviators, people looking for a combination of style and function will have to look no further than the GMT-Master II.
With a trademark design that has made it a popular choice, the Yachtmaster was designed to reflect the breezy luxury you can enjoy in yachts on a sunny day. The watch was introduced in the 1950s built with features such as a bidirectional rotating bezel, trip lock winding crown, which enhances its waterproof functionality, and par chrome oscillator hairspring that makes it resistant to magnetic fields and shocks. The chronograph was a regatta which was the first programmable mechanical countdown timer in the world and could be used at the start of a yacht race. The watch is finally combined with its trademark two-tone metal strap making it a subtly classy timepiece that is elegant and practical at the same time!
The Submariner is also known as the ‘Bond Watch’. It has been sported by various actors playing James Bond like Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton, and its name comes from its outstanding underwater abilities.

The Submariner was the very first timepiece that was designed to be water resistant at 100 meters or 330 feet. With further updates and additions, the watch currently has a water resistance of up to 300 meters or 1000 feet.
It is popular choice for watch enthusiasts and water sports aficionados alike. The hardened yet beautiful design and neutral tones combined with that large, beautiful dial will attract anyone’s attention!
