Gold Case Replica Rolex GMT II Series Stainless Steel Bezel Watches UK

Let’s be honest, Rolex watches are one of the society’s symbol of success around the world.  If you want people to know you’ve made it, then get a Rolex. And, this message is universal, it hardly matters where you are on the globe.
The Rolex replica watches UK models don’t change much and some are so common that on a recent trip to the US east coast, I counted three of us, in close proximity, wearing Rolexes in the train at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson airport going from one terminal to the next.
While wearing a Rolex cheap fake watch tends to exude this message of “I made it” (intentionally or not), there are however, plenty of other reasons why buying a Rolex is a great investment and will get you on the road to horological satisfaction and connoisseurship…

When I started my timepiece collection, I consider myself fortunate to have bought a Rolex GMT-Master II (ref. 116713 LN) as my first timepiece. It is one of Rolex’s many iconic designs, and to be frank, it still remains one of my favorite watches to this day.
It’s the measuring stick that I use to compare all of my other acquisitions — those more or less expensive.  I love the Rolex GMT-Master II for its classic design, its incredible construction, its feel, and of course the impact that it projects when I wear it.
Rolex created the first Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT replica watches in the 1950s for Pan Am pilots who wanted a quick way to check and know the time in different timezones.  The classic design has gone through various refinements, but it remains pretty much the same today.

The original Rolex GMT was one of the first watches on the market that could tell time in two timezones at once.  Essentially, Rolex added a fourth hand (the green hand with the large arrow head, or the GMT hand) that circles the dial in 24 hours.  The great innovation at the time was to create a rotating bezel with 24 hour markers that can be adjusted as one moves to different timezones.
There are two primary ways to make use of the GMT feature.  First, with the bezel marker set to 12 o’clock, change the GMT to point to the current Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) which is the same as the timezone in London. Change the hour hands and set it to the current timezone.  With the Rolex GMT-Master II this is done easily as the minutes move with the GMT hand when the crown (unscrewed) is pulled two positions and the hours hand moves by itself when the crown is in the first position.

Quite often we find great stuff from watchmaking history on our own, of course, but a lot of the time we get help from readers too and in this case, a reader shared something with us in the comments that was so good we just wanted to make sure no one missed it. Here it is: NASA archival footage, via Spacecraft Films, showing LEM pilot Ed Mitchell putting on what looks like Replica Rolex GMT Master Series Watches UK under the inner cuff of his space suit.

Reader “Refractor Phil” commented, “This January 1971 Apollo 14 video shows astronaut-Lunar Module pilot Edgar Mitchell putting on extra watches underneath his spacesuit during suit up procedures for the third Lunar mission to land on the Moon. It looks like Stainless Steel Fake Rolex Watches on each arm tugged underneath the fire resistant long underwear sleeves . . . ”

The Apollo 14 crew – Commander Alan Shepard, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa, and Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell – might have had butterflies in their stomachs after the close call of the preceding aborted Apollo 13 mission, but they look all business in the video and the nine-day mission went off without a hitch, famously including an interlude on the lunar surface, where Alan Shepard knocked a couple of golf balls around. We’ve seen stills of Mitchell’s Rolex GMT Master Copy Watches before but never run across this footage, which is just a great piece of living history. Mitchell passed away at the age of 85 just last February – the last surviving member of the Apollo 14 crew – and we can’t help but wonder what might have happened to his Rolex.
