Rolex GMT-Master II 'Coke'
We were pleased to examine and certify this superb gent's Rolex chronometer wristwatch for a recent client here at our offices at 553 Basaltic Road, Concord. A true Rolex must be specially inscribed with specific reference and serial number notations both on and in the case as well as the bracelet. Frauds, reworked pieces with aftermarket elements and other lesser examples abound and many are difficult to distinguish from the 'real thing'. Happily for our client, this example checked all the boxes and is in top notch condition, both physically and mechanically. Our all points inspection and valuation allowed it to be properly certified for insurance or one day for sale.
As one of the pioneer watchmakers, Rolex is notable for having iconic timepieces that also come with catchy, memorable nicknames. Some popular examples from the brand’s GMT-Master II collection include the Rolex Pepsi and Rolex Root Beer, which are named after soda drinks, as well as another well-known watch that is dubbed with a famous DC comic character’s name, the Rolex Batman. Following the brand’s trend of naming watches after beverages, we have yet another striking GMT-Master II watch: the Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16710. Commonly known as the Rolex Coke, this is one of the most sought-after timepieces in the GMT-Master II series.
