The utmost care is taken during the assembly of every Rolex GMT-Master timepiece to ensure outstanding quality.

Rolex owns and runs an exclusive foundry, allowing it to cast the highest-quality alloys with unrivalled precision.
The unique Rolex Oyster case ensures that a Rolex GMT-Master 16718 will withstand 100 Meters (330ft) of water. Rolex manufactures each Oyster casing totally in-house and carefully tests it for water-resistance. During the final check, every Rolex GMT-Master watch is submerged in water for a period of time and subjected to a pressure that is ten percent greater than the level of waterproofness guaranteed. Waterproof Twinlock winding crown is seen on Rolex GMT-Master 16718. Due to two sealed zones, one inside the tube and the other inside the winding crown, the screw-down crown is protected from water while using Twinlock.
