Lot Essay

The present reference 116748 is one of the exceedingly few examples of this model to appear in public to date. Its rarity is further enhanced by the very good overall condition.

Highly precious stone-set sports watches are doubtlessly amongst Rolex’s scarcest models. Made in very small series only, these stunning timepieces are coveted treasures in today's market - The aesthetic appeal of the present watch fully matches its incredible rarity: the combination of the icy beauty of the diamond setting and yellow gold case is framed and counterbalanced by the deep blue sapphires, adding a touch of sophisticated playfulness to the final effect.

The precious stone-set GMT-Master was originally launched in 1979 with reference 16758SARU, the designation "SARU" referring to the sapphire and ruby setting to the bezel, a tribute to the blue and red coloured bakelite bezel of the 1956-GMT Master model.
