Many watch enthusiasts recently had a great time in Geneva during the prestigious Watches and Wonders.

Rolex GMT Master ll

”The GMT‑Master II from Oystersteel is presented for the first time with the Cerachrom bezel ring in gray and black ceramic that was introduced in this collection in 2023. There are two new versions. One model is equipped with an Oyster bracelet and the other with a Jubilee bracelet. Their green 24-hour hand does much more than simply indicate a second time zone: it points to another place that is important to the wearer, reflecting the emotions that travel with each traveler.”
