Rolex trickles out fresh watches each year with important inventions being released with comparative rarity. Part of 2018 is about extending the Rolex GMT Master II watch by including a new two-tone bezel (Ref. 116710BLNR) in the spirit of the renowned Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi dial watches. The half-red and half-blue bezels of yesteryear were used as day/night indicators for its GMT scale bezel. The look became iconic. ABlogtoWatch debuted the Rolex stealth submariner military gmt-master ii blue replica watch GMT Master II Day/Night watch to the world here recently (where you’ll find additional information).
For 2013, Rolex honors this timeless look with a blue and black versus blue and red bezel — and this time it’s in ceramic. Technically, the ceramic Rolex bezel is remarkable. You’ve got just one piece ceramic insert produced in house by Rolex datejust military gmt-master ii blue replica watches that incorporates two colours. Rolex claims that they use a patented process to produce the two colors. Discussing with Rolex they said the bezel actually starts blue, then somehow black is added later. The result is a perfect transition from 1 color to another.
Under a loupe I was able to realize that the line between blue and black is perfect without any fuzziness or bleeding. Even if there wasn’t any color bleeding, most people wouldn’t notice, but this is a portion of Rolex’s rather famous attention to crisp details. The older bezels were produced from aluminum that could be printed. Though, aluminum bezel inserts are prone to scratching and wearing easily. Ceramic is obviously a better substance and it is great to see Rolex eventually releasing, in product form, a number of the many processes and techniques it has grown.
To highlight the rich blue tone of this bezel, Rolex milgauss military gmt-master ii blue fake utilizes a matching blue colour for the period of the GMT hands on the dial. The outcome is a new looking Rolex GMT Master II that is a worthy addition to this product family. It is not a radical addition or change, but it does represent a new technology showing the know-how of Rolex, and offers a fresh, very good looking alternative to those who haven’t yet had a motive to include a Rolex GMT Master II in their own collection. At this stage Rolex has offered watches with ceramic colors in black, white, blue, green, and brown. What will be next?
Both watches are 40mm wide, with comparable dials and cases. Oftentimes their costs overlap, and this brand new ref. 116710BLNR GMT Master II watch is all about 550 Swiss Francs over the Submariner Date ref. 116610LN (reviewed here). In accordance with Rolex stealth submariner black military GMT-Master II blue replica , the price premium for the new two-tone black and blue bezel is about 1,000 Swiss Francs (CHF) over the standard ceramic bezel. The GMT obviously has another timezone (third if you count the rotating GMT scale on the bezel), while the Submariner has higher water resistance and the wonderful Glidelock deployant system on the bracelet. Deciding on this brand new GMT Master II or Submariner Date could be a tough decision if you can just choose one.
There are minor differences between the Submariner and the Rolex GMT Master II, and I won’t spell out them here. But, another difference is the polish on the bracelet. The Rolex GMT Master II includes a polished center link, and also the Submariner has a completely brushed steel case. Both watches have magnifier lenses across the date on the sapphire crystal, ceramic bezels, COSC Chronometer certified in-house made automatic motions by Rolex stealth submariner pro hunter military GMT-Master II blue clone watch, as well as almost identical dials (spare for the Excess hand on the GMT)
