The visual changes include the Rolex crown in-between “Swiss Made” at the bottom of the dial. Something we have been seeing in the new models released. Additionally a slightly elongated minute arrow. Of course, the most noticeable change is the jubilee bracelet, released with the Pepsi in 2018 (there are no longer any GMT Master’s on a stainless steel oyster bracelet). The lugs of the watch have also been slightly narrowed to fit the bracelet better. The bracelet is fitted with an oysterlock and a 5mm easylink extension.

The GMT Master II received a mechanism update. Featuring a 3285 calibre, present in the Pepsi. The power reserve has increased from 48 to 70 hours. Part of Rolex’s new-generation movements, it has a variable balance wheel, a more efficient escapement, and gear train.

Despite the few visual changes we think the model does have a slightly different feel mostly because of a bracelet that turned the ultimate sports watch into a more exclusive piece. In any case, both models are extremely sought after, the old reference has matched the price to the Pepsi 126710BLRO. The first Batgirls have been appearing in the market this month, we are expecting the price to naturally fall until it stabilizes in the next few months as more pieces come in rotation.

tz/Sales Corner Forum Rules

Be civil. No personal attacks, even if you think a user’s model is dubious. Report any comments that break this basic rule.

Replica/fake/counterfeit watch posts and discussion are explicitly forbidden, aside from text posts about how to identify and avoid fakes. Questions about particular watches being real/fake should go in the stickied Monthly Watch Verification thread and not a new thread.

At this time, comments submitted by users with less than five (5) comment karma and accounts that are only one (1) day old are automatically filtered by our Automod for review. This is a direct result of an increase in spam and incivility.

This is a place to discuss Rolex and Tudor watches. Memes and shitposts will generally be deleted unless they’re actually funny or create relevant discussion. And no posts from toilets or moving cars, you savages!

At this time, buying/selling threads are not permitted. There are subreddits and websites that are dedicated to buying/selling watches, including /tz/WatchExchange.

Promotional posts from vendors are fine as long as you’re upfront about who you are, participate in some discussion, and don’t spam the sub with multiple threads. “Hi I’m Steve from RandomStrapCo, here are some pics of our new strap” is 100% fine, but thinly-veiled promotional posts from throwaways are not appreciated. Note that this rule applies to accessory vendors (straps, cases, boxes, etc), not watch vendors. Buying/selling the watches themselves is not permitted at this time.

If you’re looking to buy a Rolex online try this list of well-known sellers.
