The Original Rolex GMT-Master

The first GMT-Master watch was designed specifically for pilots, navigators, and others who find themselves in different time zones regularly. Many people don't know this, but Pan Am Airlines actually teamed up with Rolex in hope of making the ideal watch of choice for pilots and flight crews on long-haul flights. Basically, this was designed to be a more professional and practical watch. In fact, this is why it was at first only offered in stainless steel. However, this did change, and later, it was released in white gold, Everose gold, and yellow gold. There are also two-toned options that feature both gold and steel.


The Rolex GMT-Master II: The Cosmopolitan Watch

The Rolex GMT-Master was still manufactured until its discontinuation in 1999. However, the Rolex GMT-Master II was released long before this, and the two were actually manufactured at the same time for many years. The Rolex GMT-Master II was originally released by Rolex in the early 1980s. It still featured the same timeless aesthetics of the original Rolex GMT-Master, but a few simple changes were made. For example, there were changes made to the Rolex GMT-Master II in terms of the movement, and this movement made it possible to change the hour hand (such as when entering a second time zone on a long-haul flight) without pausing the second hand. These types of small, technical adjustments made these professional watches even more precise for timekeeping.


Since the release of the original GMT-Master II, a few changes were made to newer models. For example, when the 50th anniversary edition was released in 2005, it was made with a larger case. This modernized the watch a bit, since Rolex watches -- and watches in general -- have gotten much larger over the years. A few other changes were made in 2005 as well, such as the replacement of the bezel. A new bezel was implemented to be more scratch-resistant and durable, making the Rolex GMT Master II that much better in quality.


In 2007, Rolex replaced the aluminum insert in their GMT-Master II watches with a ceramic bezel insert. Previously, these watches had a two-tone bezel that made it easier to determine the times of the second time zone, but this was not possible initially. However, Rolex did release their two-colour Cerachrom bezel insert in 2013. Known by many as the "Batman" version of the Rolex GMT-Master II, this watch was released with a blue and black bezel. Once this two-color bezel insert was released, Rolex offered multiple other color combinations. The "Pepsi" model, which featured a red and blue bezel, was very popular. Additionally, the "Root Beer" version was released with a brown and black Cerachrom insert. All feature a bidirectional rotatable bezel.


There are a number of different Rolex GMT-Master II watches on the market. Some are made from precious metals like white gold, while others are made from stainless steel. Some feature an Oyster bracelet, while others have a Jubilee bracelet. All of these watches are perfectly suitable for an airborne adventure, on intercontinental flights, but their versatile appearance and precision of their timekeeping make them perfect for everyday wear by just about anyone.


Regardless of the specific model and reference number that you have, you can take out a loan on your Rolex GMT-Master II when you come to Hilltop Pawn. The amount you can borrow does depend on the value of your watch, and some of them are more valuable than others, based on the model and condition. The sooner you bring your watch to us, though, the sooner we can make you a loan offer, so stop by Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach today.


Why Take Out a Loan on Your Rolex GMT-Master II Watch in Virginia Beach?

Naturally, there are many different types of loans out there. There are payday lenders you can borrow from until your next payday, and there are title lenders who will make a loan on your car's title. There are also personal loans from banks and lending institutions. Despite having all of these options, our customers come to us time and time again to take out cash loans. Once you learn a little more about borrowing money on your Rolex GMT-Master II, you're sure to see why. There's really no reason to bother with other lenders when borrowing from us is this easy...and fast!


Enjoy a Regulated Loan

In all 50 states, pawn shops like Hilltop Pawn are state-regulated. Here in Virginia, there are requirements about things like how much we can charge you in interest, and we follow these regulations to the letter. You can always feel comfortable borrowing from us, and you don't have to worry about the predatory rates, interest fees, and practices of payday lenders and other shady lenders.


Take Out a Higher Value Loan

Taking out a high value loan in Virginia Beach can be tough, but as the owner of a Rolex GMT-Master II, you have some serious borrowing power right there on your wrist. Because of the value of these watches -- whether an original model or one of the newer Rolex GMT-Master II watches -- we can make a big loan.


Use the Loan Money for Anything You Need

There are many reasons why people find themselves in the position of needing a cash loan. It doesn't matter! Use the loan funds from Hilltop Pawn for anything you want, no questions asked.


Avoid Filling Out an Application

The hassle of filling out an application for a loan can be a big pain. We get that! We don't require you to fill out an application for one of our loans. It really is the simplest way to borrow money.


Avoid Getting Turned Down for a Loan

You might be worried that you will get turned down for a loan on your Rolex GMT-Master II. This might have happened with other loans, such as if you don't have good credit. However, getting approved is easy. Just bring in your Rolex GMT-Master II and your ID for identification purposes. Because we don't check credit or income, you're approved!


Get an Extension if Needed

The whole reason you might be planning on taking out a loan instead of selling your watch is because you don't want to lose it. As is the case with any collateral loan, this is a possibility if you default on the loan. However, we make it easy to help you get your watch back, because we do offer extensions on our loans, at a small fee. Don't wait until the last minute! Just make sure you come by before your repayment date and talk to us about it. We'll grant you an extension so you'll have more time to come up with the cash and come pick up your Rolex GMT-Master II watch!


Avoid Credit Impacts

Borrowing money can have a big impact on your credit. Hard credit score inquiries can ding your credit score, and adding new accounts can impact your credit, too. Also, as you might be well aware, defaulting on a loan can heavily impact your credit score in many cases.


When you take out a Rolex GMT-Master II loan at our pawn shop, there are no credit impacts whatsoever. We won't run your credit, so there's no concern about a hard credit inquiry. We don't report your loan to the credit bureaus, either, even if you default on it. Whether you have great credit and want to avoid dinging it, or if you're in the process of improving your score, one of our loans is sure to be the right choice.
