Before I started collecting Rolex and other luxury watches, I was buying $400 – $500 watches nearly every month. These watches, although pretty, never seems to last and almost all of them have very little resale value. After a little advice from my father (a Rolex enthusiasts) I started collecting Rolex watches.
The first Rolex watch that I bought (about 6 years ago) was the Rolex GMT-Master II 16710BLKBLK men’s watch. It has a nice stainless steel strap with a black bezel and dial. As this watch can be easily matched with any outfit, I was wearing it for almost every day for the past 6 years. It has also outlasted several of my cheaper watches.
Later I found out there was a two toned version of the watch that I bought, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II 116713-BSO. The 116713-BSO has the exact design as the 16710 except that it is highlighted by 18k gold. The outline of the bezel, numbers, center of the strap and the turning dial is adorned with gold giving it a distinctive look.
I wasted no time in getting myself one of these as above all the practicalities; it stands out more than the 16710 and just seems more luxurious and expensive (which it actually is). It retains the black dial that makes it very easy to read the time even under dark or glaring conditions. Like almost all Rolex watches, the dial window is made of scratch resistant synthetic sapphire. It is also water resistant for up to 100 feet. If you are planning to get yourself this little piece of luxury, do only buy from authorized dealers. My friend owns a replica and honestly, I could not tell them apart!
