In the world of Rolex, even the slightest of alterations can make a huge difference, not just aesthetically but also in terms of collectability. Rolex is all about new iterations and innovations, making each timepiece so loved and desirable in the watch market. But this time, the brand has leapt to introduce something beyond what the collectors could usually predict.
Have you ever heard of a ‘Left-Handed’ GMT-Master II? That’s right. Rolex has launched one of the biggest surprises of 2022 with a ‘Destro’ crown and a distinct green and black bezel. Before this, the luxury watch manufacturer had never released a left-hand model for its mainstream or flagship models, specifically in a GMT-Master II.
The Ref. 126720VTNR is already gathering positive reviews for its contemporary aesthetic. The watch will soon be another most collectable timepiece from the brand that will fetch an excellent value when you sell your Rolex in the pre-owned market.
Let’s see what the NEW GMT-Master II Ref. 126720VTNR ‘Left-Hand Destro’ looks like!
THE UNUSUAL COLOURWAY
Previously you must have seen the blue-and-black Rolex ‘Batman’ GMT, which gained massive popularity. Now coming to the new model, Green is Rolex’s symbolic colour. Even though the colour green has been seen beforehand on the Rolex Submariner, the black and green bezel is completely new and will surely gain high traction in the watch market.
The bi-directional bezel and the matching 4th hand look stunning, and either you’ll love it or not! But what will be the watch’s nickname?
The ‘LEFT-HAND’ CROWN
The new 126720VTNR has a contemporary outlook, but the watch retains the trademark GMT appeal that makes it stand out. The left-hand crown might seem slightly off-the-track in one look, but eventually, it becomes the most striking feature.
The crown is present at the 9 o’clock position with a date window. Even if the watch has its design made for the left-handers, it will most certainly cultivate fans amongst the right-handers as well!
The unobvious placement of the crown is indeed intriguing.
THE TRADITIONAL DESIGN OF GMT-MASTER II 126720VTNR
The new GMT-Master II takes the design of the existing model and has a 40mm Oystersteel case. The dial sees a few adjustments, including moving the date and Cyclops from 3 to 9’clock to accommodate the left-hand crown.
The dial showcases the traditional minute, seconds, and hour hands, a triangle-tipped 24-hour hand, and a bi-directional black and green Cerachrom insert bezel with platinum-coated numerals. The 126720VTNR GMT-Master watch displays the time in two time zones simultaneously.
Rolex has recently stated that the latest changes in the ‘Destro’ GMT-Master II required some variations in the dial configuration. But thankfully, the movement type remains the same with the Calibre 3285 (released in 2018). It is one of the best movements in Rolex’s engineering and comes with a Parachrom hairspring and a power reserve of 70 hours.

The new Rolex 126720VTNR is available on both Jubilee and Oyster bracelet. However, the watch with an Oyster bracelet will have a different price than a Jubilee bracelet. Choose one that appeals to you!
