Thus, imagine our surprise when in Baselworld 2013 Rolex Gmt Master 4 Replica introduced a brand new steel Rolex GMT-Master II using a black and blue ceramic bezel – the Ref. 116710BLNR (BLNR for bleu/noir). It was one of the stars at this past year’s series, and we noted in our hands-on past year just how well-made the brand new ceramic bezel is, and also how handsome the watch is in the flesh.Judging from the simple fact that Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. In fact, lots of traders, at least my own part of the planet, are actually charging a premium for this particular piece. And it was only after much searching around and inquiring that I managed to find a dealer who was happy to sell it in retail price.For this review, I’m not going to tell you about the features and technical details of this watch, I believe the capacities of this calibre 3186 have been well covered in our earlier review of this steel and gold Ref. 116713. Besides, the Rolex GMT-Master II is this a popular opinion that it should not be any stranger to most people. But I will say that the situation is solidly built and nicely polished, along with the grip and bracelet are also of the maximum quality. Moreover, the Easylink extension, which allows the bracelet to be subtly extended by 5mm, is a lifesaver on hot days. Not everyone is going to be a lover of the glistening center-links, but I enjoy it as it distinguishes the GMT-Master II in the Submariner and causes it to look just a little dressier.What I’m mainly going to talk about rather is that new blue and black bezel, and whether it’s well worth paying the cost difference over the typical Ref. 116710LN. As it stands, the Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710BLNR currently commands a premium of about $600 within the Ref. 116710LN cost.
We’re here at Baselworld 2013 and Rolex Gmt Master Usa Replica has shown off a couple of new model iterations including a platinum Rolex Daytona and this black and blue colored Rolex GMT-Master II. Essentially just a new color variation of the current Rolex GMT-Master II range, this new version employs a two color cerachrom bezel insert (a first for Rolex) in a day/night arrangement of blue and black.
Though, this model has been replaced from the ceramic bezeled 116710. But, it is possible to find the 16710 model at BeckerTime’s used Rolex Gmt Master 16753 Replica GMT Master II, in addition to the pre-owned Rolex market. The GMT Master II 16710 has evolved from the original 6542 and 1675 GMT Master with multiple features and improvements added.This Rolex GMT Master II review describes many appealing elements to the Rolex GMT Master II 16710. This version utilizes a similar case because its brother the Submariner. The circumstance is 904L stainless steel and the bracelet that the more industry standard 314L stainless. 904L helps prevent corrosion that sometimes happens on the caseback threads out of sweat and sea water. Unlike the Submariner, the GMT utilizes a thinner caseback and Twinloc crown. Both of these differences make the GMT water resistant only to 100 meters. The numbers on the bezel insert, combined with the SuperLuminova covered dial dots along with Mercedes hands create the Rolex GMT among the more legible watch faces.The Rolex GMT Master II 16710 can be obtained with an Oyster bracelet and Oysterlock bracelet grip. Earlier models were available with a DateJust style grip and Jubilee style bracelet, bridging the instrument watch using a dress watch.
Still sized to 40mm and powered by the Rolex Gmt Master Pepsi Jubilee Replica Calibre 3186, this new model is little more than an additional color choice for buyers looking for some of that classic Pam Am panache. Rolex announcements are a big deal at the BaselWorld and crowds formed quickly when the new models were displayed outside of Rolex’s booth. Onlookers seemed to have mixed feelings about the mostly-cosmetic updates and the lack of a specific 50th anniversary piece for the legendary Rolex Daytona.
Alongside the black and blue Rolex Gmt Master Ii Movement Review Replica GMT-Master II is a new blue and brown platinum Rolex Daytona. This is not the Rolex Daytona that many were expecting. Also still 40mm, this new version features a case and bracelet made of 950 platinum along with a light blue dial and brown cerachrom bezel. New colors and metals aside, the platinum Rolex Daytona (ref 116505) is powered by the Calibre 4130 COSC automatic chronograph movement with 72 hours of power reserve. This new version comes on the year of the Rolex Daytona’s 50th birthday and while the color combo is interesting, many were expecting a brand new model with an updated case size. While it is totally possible that Rolex is still planning to celebrate the Rolex Daytona’s 50th with an official model, it doesn’t look as though Basel will be the host for that announcement. Now that Rolex is the official sponsor for Formula One, they may have a more race-focused and Rolex Daytona-appropriate stage for such news, only time will tell. For now, it is safe to say that while the new platinum 2013 Dayonta may prove to be a successful model, many BaselWorld attendees were expecting something completely different.
While the new variations of both the Rolex Daytona and the Rolex GMT-Master II are undoubtedly cool pieces, neither are brand new models, nor do they differ greatly from the current formula for each model range. I rather like the blue and black Rolex GMT-Master II and think that it is a nice addition the Rolex GMT-Master II family. What do you think of these new versions? Maybe Rolex has something else up its sleeve. rolex.com
