The New Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi

Where the GMT-Master on the right (ref.16758) shows the old style case, in gold, and the brown dial with nipple hour markers, you almost think the new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose gold is much bigger. The lugs are beefier, but the diameter is exactly the same at 40mm. The brown color is different from the vintage GMT-Master, and has more a cappuccino color on the new reference 126715CHNR. The bezel with its two-colour brown and black Cerachrom insert in ceramic, engraved numerals and graduations, works like a charm. The current mechanism feels much nicer and better engineered than the bezels from the old days. The color scheme of the new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose is very nice, but miles away from the former brown dialed (and bezel) GMT-Master model.

The image below shows the difference in thickness as well as a good demonstration of how different the gold tones are. The new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose has, of course, a Triplock crown to ensure water resistance (up to 10ATM).

My initial enthusiasm was not so big for this model, since it did not have the brown dial and was not made of yellow gold. That said, this disappeared rapidly when I had the chance to try it myself. It’s a well balanced watch, and the use of the brown and black on the bezel matches perfectly with the Everose gold case and bracelet. The gold details also come back in the dial, in the writing of ‘GMT-Master II’ as well as in the indices and hands. Did you also notice the little crown between Swiss and Made? The new Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi with Jubilee also has this feature.

The preservation of Rolex

Rolex of stainless steel than the general 316L stainless steel to the hard, coupled with the screw into the bottom cover, and the leading multi-layer waterproof ring so the watch is more resistant to scratch and moisture, the age of a long time unless the artificial collision, it seems Will be higher than the general watch, so his hedge is relatively high.

Rolex facelift of the magnitude is not, the classic design so few, and each series of features and price segment is very obvious, each of the public price will not have much change, not because of the age The back line is the second reason.

Rolex watch very much love precious metals, 18K gold. White gold, rose gold … and so on, plus the watch style is simple, not too complicated design, so the price is the material money, the same material of the high price watch because the design is complicated, so the design and development costs will be added Relative to Rolex because it is relatively simple, is a card vulgar watch, but also the reason for everyone love, it is like you go to pawn shop to sell diamond ring, he will not assess your section or artificial, only according to the number of carats you Scale two pounds on the sale.

Movement is good, most of the homemade, for some preference for self-made fans of the enthusiasts, of course, has its charm, but his chronograph daytona movement is actually ZENITH EI Primero movement modified Is the fact that the dispute, but the movement has 36,000 times the high frequency, is a well-known movement, but also because ZENITH also production watch, it is also the opponent, so Di Duo Na movement is Because it is not self-supply or switch to other plants, has been a topic, but also one of the factors fried, but it is undeniable that the movement is good, most of the watches have been certified by the Observatory, so on time prices Reasonable and practical, of course, even more than a floor.

The maintenance and service of the rolex force is recognized as good, the price is reasonable, the same because the change is small, so the replacement parts are not easy to pieces, for a watch section of the permanent preservation is a very good factor, Brand big and not afraid of down, unlike my antique watch, some parts on the lack of it is difficult to repair.

Of course, the shortcomings of the price has been up, the new watch is the price of yesterday’s tongue, of course, if the watch has been down, you will buy it?

Are You Buying Authentic Watches?

I begin this article with a small confession. It’s not something I’m proud of, but it is an example of how easy it is to be tricked. It was probably around 2003 when I started searching for an Oyster bracelet for my Rolex Datejust (which came on a Jubilee bracelet). I quickly found one on eBay and, after doing a quick feedback check on the seller, I decided to hit the “Buy Now” button.

I don’t recall the exact price but it was reasonable enough, certainly not so cheap that it was “too good to be true.” After receiving the bracelet, I almost immediately discovered that it was a counterfeit. If I had only done my homework, I would have known that the clasp codes were incorrect and that the reference number was engraved in the wrong location on the bracelet. Essentially, I paid for my lesson by buying this counterfeit bracelet. No more impulsive “Buy Now” clicks unless I am absolutely sure everything is correct.

“Buyer Beware”, which is an interesting read, but mainly focused on the topic of how counterfeit watches pose a potential risk for the watch industry. In this article, I would like to put the focus more on the buyers of counterfeit watches or — even worse – the so-called “Frankenwatches.”

A counterfeit watch – or bracelet, as I mentioned in my small introduction – is a complete fake. Nothing is genuine about the watch. Some makers of counterfeit watches are quite good these days, which means they make them out of decent stainless steel, get most of the little details correct, and perhaps even provide a fake box and fake papers. Be very careful about those. Two things will probably give away it is fake: 1.The price. It is probably too good to be true. 2.The movement. There will be some other things as well, mainly in the details of the watch. So either make sure you are able to verify whether there is valid movement inside or study all the details of the watch to be sure. Ideally, you would bring a similar watch with you that you know to be genuine.
