Just as with some vintage GMT-Master models, the watch has been fitted with a new, five-link Jubilee bracelet – but with a spring-loaded Oysterclasp found only on Rolex sports watches.
Like most recent Rolex launches, the new GMT-Master II is powered by a new-generation movement, the calibre 3285, with some 10 patents filed during its development.
It has a Parachrom hairspring, Chronergy escapement, 70-hour power reserve as well as the Superlative Chronometer certification. The movement replaces the long in tooth calibre 3186, which was lacking the Chronergy escapement.
The Cerachrom, bi-directional “BLRO” bezel – which is actually two-colour ceramic – and black dial remains unchanged, and what we have is a wholly irresistible version of a GMT-Master II “Pepsi”.
Price and Availability
The GMT-Master II “Pepsi” in stainless steel (ref. 126710 BLRO) is priced at US$9250.
