ROLEX GMT-MASTER 16710 B&P
This 2005 GMT-Master, reference 16710 was sold at a time when Rolex was already working on it’s successor – the 2007 introduced 116710LN GMT with ceramic bezel. However, we feel that our ‘last of the mohicans’ 16710 is so much better then the modern versions of the GMT if you’d like to enjoy a sleeker style of sports Rolex. Sure the 16710 measures 40mm in diameter, but the flatter design of the center case and the sleeker style of the lugs, crown guards and stainless steel bezel makes this a very comfortable watch to wear, even when your wrist size is around 17.5cm or less – for the smaller wrist this is also a very wearable and comfortable watch. The satin finished Oyster bracelet of the 16710 also gives the watch a much more of a Toolwatch or professional look if you will, when compared to the modern version of the Oyster bracelet.
So, we’re happy to offer you guys yet another killer GMT! This watch has been taking really good care of for the past 15 years. This GMT is clearly in an unpolished condition with a thick case and still the original factory brushing on top of the lugs. Both sides of the stainless steel center-case and the crown-guards show straight lines and sharp angles and remain unpolished. The 78790A Oyster bracelet with Flip-Lock folding clasp is also still unpolished and in excellent, stretch free conditions! The stainless steel rotating bezel is sharp as a knife and the aluminum Coke insert is spotless. Another cool feature about these five digit GMT’s is the fact you can switch out the insert. This 16710 ‘Coke’ is also accompanied with it’s original ‘Pepsi’ insert, but should you also get the all-black version, you basically own three watches in one – Excellent! This GMT-Master is accompanied by it’s punched, signed and stamped Hong Kong warranty including box, booklet, hangtags etc. A great set and a no-nonsense Toolwatch which are getting harder to find in these conditions..
This 16710’s movement was fully serviced but the case and bracelet were obviously left unpolished. The movement is running according the COSC specs and she will be sold with a 12 month warranty.
