Rolex Watch Unveils GMT-Master II Pepsi In Steel - Ref. 126710BLRO
Hodinkee’s report — The new GMT has the same Cerachrome two-tone (red and blue) bi-directional bezel with 24-hour, night/day indication as well as the same black dial with luminous dot indexes.
So what is new about this watch? Well, for one it has a Jubilee bracelet that hasn't been seen on a GMT-Master since the vintage years and is only used on current Datejust models.
The bracelet is made of Oystersteel and has the Oysterlock clasp (with 5mm comfort extension for those hot summer days or that week you ate too much pizza). But the biggest news about this watch is the new caliber – the 3285.
The previous iteration GMT had the 3186 which didn't have the new Chronergy escapement that has been added to new Rolex movements, allowing for a 15% gain in efficiency. It also boasts 70 hours of power reserve (beating out the caliber 3186's 48 hours). Additionally, there are 10 patents on this watch..
