New Old Stock, in the stickers, New, Factory Fresh.. These are all words that describe this Rolex GMT-Master 16710 from 2007. The watch was originally bought in the United Arab Emirates, in Abu Dhabi to be precise, at official Rolex retailer Mohammed Rasool Khoory & Sons. The watch went straight into a safe after it’s purchase, only to be sold as an unworn watch years later to a collector in Germany, until it recently ended up here with us in Haarlem.

This 16710 GMT originally left the factory as an LN GMT – This is also mentioned on the original warranty. As you probably know, LN stands for Lunette Noire, meaning Black Insert. However, we can also deliver a Pepsi insert with this watch of course. Our NOS GMT is an early Z serial watch, which means that the movement inside the case is a Rolex 3185 movement. This watch is also somewhat of a transitional model when it comes to the boxes and papers, it’s one of the very first models with the in 2007 newly introduced all green boxes and credit-card sized warranty card. The dial on our 16710 is a rare ‘Rectangle’ dial, referring to the Roman II at the end of the word GMT-Master. When researched, one will find that the Rectangular dial is much more rare then the often talked about ‘Stick’ dial! As you might expect from a NOS watch this one is in like new conditions, all stickers are on the case, the case-back and under the folding clasp, no damages or traces of wear can be found on the bracelet, clasp, case or bezel. This is just a very solid watch, and one you won’t find that many of in this particular condition. (Please note the few scratches on the bottom of the lugs in the last photo, the bracelet was removed in the past to check the condition of the movement).

This 16710 GMT and it’s movement were checked via the Witschi Chronoscope Timegrapher, the results were the same as with a Rolex watch that leaves the factory today – she stil runs according to the COSC specs and will of course be sold with a 12 month warranty.
