Latest Testing of the Rolex GMT-Master II
Rolex updated the popular steel travel watch GMT-Master II with a blue and black “Batman” bezel. The combination of blue and black on the bezel of the fake Rolex GMT-Master II makes fans call it “Batman.” The current version of the Jubilee bracelet and new movement was launched in 2019. Its predecessor in the same color appeared in 2013 and was the first Rolex model with a two-tone ceramic bezel. This particular color combination did not exist before. The first GMT-Master II in 1954 was equipped with a blue and red 24-hour scale, which was later called “Pepsi” because of this color combination. The first choice of these colors is to more clearly distinguish between day and night in the second time zone.
Today, the steel GMT-Master II is available in two versions, which differ only in the color of the bezel: Pepsi and Batman, our test watch. Both have a new movement and a five-row jubilee bracelet that was once reserved only for the Datejust model. Replica Rolex designed the Jubilee bracelet for Datejust in 1945; but as early as 1959, GMT-Master also offered an optional Jubilee bracelet. Just like the Oyster bracelet of the GMT-Master II, the inner link is polished and the outer link has a brushed surface.
Rolex did not use the Oyster buckle with the Jubilee bracelet like the Datejust watch but used the Oyster foldable buckle as on the sports watch. It has an additional safety bar, but it looks very similar-both have Easylink extensions that can extend the bracelet up to 5 mm. This practical mechanism will be very useful when higher temperatures or physical exercise may cause the wrist size to increase. You can fold one and a half links from the buckle to make the bracelet longer without any noticeable change in appearance.
The high-quality clasp on the Jubilee bracelet is almost perfect in terms of workmanship and ease of operation. The foldable safety bar will blend together when closed. Lifting the fake Rolex crown can open the safety lever, which can also be easily lifted to fully open the buckle.
