This Rolex GMT-Master II (ref. 116710BLNR) was evaluated on 10 different criteria. The review is for this specific watch, other versions may perform otherwise. Evaluation is based on my wrist dimension, private opinions, experiences, and preferences. Having possessed a 116710LN from 2009 to 2014, this Rolex was no stranger to me.
Total Design | 14 from 15
Known by many as the”Batman”, this Rolex gmt-master ii batman replica watches with the black/blue bezel isn’t only attractive and contemporary, but it also manages to retain its iconic and classic appearance. This is one of Rolex’s indisputable advantages, designing a watch which will remain a classic for decades to come. The majority of Rolex’s current lineup hasn’t changed considerably (design wise) since they were introduced decades ago. They’ve only improved their watches with brand new technology (e.g. ceramic bezel, flip lock bracelet) and also have updated them slightly to keep up with the times (e.g. beefed up instances, maxi dials). In other words, a Rolex never goes out of style… most of these.
The accession of the blue on the bezel really makes the whole watch pop.
Case | 9 out of 10
Like the 116710LN (all black ceramic), this model also comes with the newest beefier case. The sides are polished while the rest of the case has a brushed finish. I am glad that Rolex gmt-master ii 16710 imitation watch beefed up the situation and lugs because they retained the first 40mm size (although 42mm would have not been bad either). It makes the opinion feel a bit bigger although the diameter didn’t change. The back of the watch is completely closed using a brush finished case back. I’ve always found it odd that Rolex generally leaves their case backs without any engravings (with the exception of a few models)… an engraving here would have added to the overall visually allure of the watch. Simply gorgeous… some may not enjoy the big numerals on the bezel, but I really love them. It provides the GMT a considerably bolder look, especially if you compare it to the Submariner. Fortunately, the bezel lined up perfectly on this particular watch… sadly, I’ve personally dealt with misaligned bezels before (on a Submariner and on a different GMT) and it’s simply not acceptable to me. The two times Beverly Hills Rolex Service Center cared for it within a day.
Plain case back, lacking any type of engraving. Boring…
Dial | 9 from 10
Contrary to the 116710LN, the beautiful green”GMT-Master II” lettering has been replaced with white. Moreover, the colour on the GMT hand has also been changed to blue in order to coordinate with the blue bezel. I guess someone in Rolex gmt-master ii pepsi replica watches idea that using the”GMT-Master II” letters from blue could have been too much (same things with all the brand new white golden Pepsi) or maybe just too tough to read from the black dial… Apart from that, the dial is implemented perfectly. The dial on the GMT is cleaner than the Submariner’s dial, it has only 3 lines of text to the bottom versus the four lines around the Submariner. In addition, I love the maxi hour indices, makes telling time easy, night or day.
Strap | 10 out of 10
Rolex’s bracelets and buckles are one of the very best in the industry. Not only are they really comfortable (curved hyperlinks ), but they are also highly adjustable (see relaxation section below), allowing the user to attain the perfect fit. The center links on the bracelet are polished, some folks enjoy it, others hate it… personally I really like it. I think that it gives it that extra refined and upscale look while fitting the glistening ceramic bezel and the polished sides of the case beautifully. Resizing the bracelet is also incredibly easy, all you need is the correct size screw driver… oh how I wish that brands would embrace to the single screwthread!
The top bracelets and buckles from the industry.
Movement | 8 out of 10
Manufacture caliber 3186, automatic, 31 jewels, and 48-hour electricity book. A strong movement that keeps excellent time… but as usual, it is hidden.
Legibility | 5 out of 5
The large round hour indices of this maxi dial provide great legibility during the day and night (Chromalight used on this version provides it the blue lume). All the various palms also have excellent lume and because they each have a different layout, telling them apart from the dark is simple. I really like Rolex gmt master ii malaysia replica watches ‘ magnification on the date… works like a charm.
The name Batman appears quite fitting.
Features | 8 out of 10
Rotating scratch-resistant two-color ceramic bezel, GMT hand, date display with magnification, Triplock triple screw-down crown, and water resistance to 100M… all features which are really helpful. My only complaint is the absence of a quick date set… having to flip the hour by increments of one hour for 24 clicks to progress once about the date wheel is still quite a workout.
Comfort | 10 from 10
Among the things which I adore most about any Rolex… how comfortable their bracelets are! Most are equipped with one of these: half connection, micro-adjustment, and/or extension (Easylink or Glidelock). Achieving the ideal match is really possible using a Rolex gmt master ii black bezel clone . There is nothing more annoying than having a bracelet fit you either too tight or too loose and not be able to do anything about it.
Value | 13 out of 15
At $8,950, the top for its two-color bezel is a meager $500 within the black bezel model. At essentially $9K, the price of a GMT-Master II is large (and quite honestly it’s very frightening how close it is to breaking the $10K mark), but considering all of the helpful features that includes the watch, just how magnificent it looks, its strong resale value, and that 50 and years down the road it will still be a classic… this GMT is a winner in my books.
