Rolex GMT Master II. 16710 'Y' series. Cal. 3185, 31 jewel auto movement with 50hr power reserve. This model has the drilled lugs which makes removing the bracelet a doddle and prevents scratching of the undersides. Bought from a fellow member in 2012, this piece dates to 2003. The watch when new was supplied with a black bezel insert (LN = Lunette noir = black bezel) which was subsequently changed (before my ownership) for the much preferable Pepsi one. As a pilot's watch, rather than a diver's, the bezel is bi-directional to make setting different time zones easier, although it is still depth rated to 330ft and has a screw down crown. This came as a complete set with all the boxes, papers and service history. Not worn very much now, it only sees the light of day a few times a year, and as it never, ever leaves the house, is in mint condition. On a personal note, I think the older Rolex models with their narrower, aluminium bezel inserts are far preferable to the later ceramic inserts, both in colour and looks.

Rolex GMT

My brother in law asked me recently how much he may possibly get for his Rolex GMT from 1999 and I gave him a rough price based on him telling me that it was a full set.

He then brought the watch for me to have a look at and my valuation tumbled, yes it had the box, and papers, but no hang tag, no original receipt, and he had another watch in with the Rolex so they 'gently crash' into each other causing lots of lovely scratches. All this was coupled with a jammed bezel ( I'm guessing wrist cheese) and there was a receipt from a watch shop in Singapore for $40 as he had the 'COKE' bezel removed and a black bezel put on.

He wasn't overly happy when I told him he should have left it as it was with the original bezel, and that he should have looked after it as it had cost him thousands in potential profit.

I'm not sure there is a moral to the story really, but I'm glad that I could tell him he was an 4rse in a diplomatic manner :biggrin:

I still have the original 'as new'  black bezel insert for mine... it forms part of the whole package if I sell.
