Watch connoisseurs’ heads up! Aftermarket modder Skeleton Concept has recently reimagined the Rolex GMT-Master II Batman for Paris Saint-Germain footballer Presnel Kimpembe. It is named after the 2018 football World Cup and PSG player and is a masterpiece in its own right.
Kimpembe, who launched his own streetwear brand PK3 last year, apparently challenged the marquee to skeletonize the watch’s 3186 movement and alter the shade of blue on the bezel. The result being the custom Rolex that features a blue bi-color bezel and a colored number 3 on the date module in blue.
The novel watch also comes with a matte, sandblasted finish on the components, a transparent sapphire crystal version with black numerals in place of the date wheel as well as a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback.
Commenting on it, Kimpembe, in a statement, said, “Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve always been a fan of everything that has to do with customization. I have been lucky to learn more about the fascinating and complicated world of horology, thanks to the master watchmakers of Skeleton Concept.”
He further added, “The process of personalizing my timepiece has been marvelous to me. I feel blessed and lucky to wear such a unique timepiece.” Skeleton Concept’s Custom Rolex GMT-Master II watch is currently available for pre-order for $70,000 USD.
