The dimensions and specifications of the Rolex GMT-Master II Everose are largely comparable with the Rolex GMT-Master II that we talked about here (new Pepsi). It’s a 40mm diameter watch with bi-directional bezel and the Rolex in-house developed caliber 3235 movement. The bracelet, in this case, is an Oyster bracelet with polished center link (like the one on all other GMT-Master II models except the new Pepsi) with Easylink system and fliplock Oysterclasp. There is little to tell that we haven’t already explained to be honest.
However, the use of Everose gold is new to this model (and the bi-color version) and this, in combination with the black and brown ceramic bezel, makes it a very special watch. Shouldn’t this be yellow gold with a brown dial (perhaps even with some nipple hour markers), I asked myself when looking at the displays of the Rolex booth. Once on the wrist though, I felt that the Rolex GMT-Master II Everose is really easy on the skin: less ‘hard’ than a yellow GMT-Master II would be. Because one of our guys has an earler model and for the sake of comparing, we put it next to the new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose.
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.
With this Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi, the GMT-Master II Bi-color (steel and Everose) and this GMT-Master II Everose, there’s quite an interesting line-up of new variants. Let’s also not forget about the new white gold GMT-Master II Pepsi, with blue dial. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to shoot this particular reference. Also good to know is that the Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Batman’ (blue & black bezel) will stay in the collection, despite other rumors in the market. We checked this with Rolex and they confirmed that this model will stay in production.
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).

When looking for the best copies of top replica watches available, you can never go wrong in choosing Swiss manufactured replicas as they are the ones that are made from high quality materials and they are also the ones that look extremely similar to their genuine counterparts. These replicas are made from precious and semi-precious materials which make them more durable than Japanese or Chinese manufactured replicas and the mechanisms used for the watches can also be similar to that of genuine luxury watches. The price of Swiss manufactured replicas can start from $1000 or higher depending on how similar it looks like to the original.
Rolex: Seeing Red & Blue
Prior to Baselword, Monochrome, a popular website predicted 5 watches that Rolex will introduce during the said event. They posted their predictions 2 weeks before Baselworld and guess what, Monochrome was 60% correct. Take a look at their hits and misses below:
Pepsi Rolex GMT Master II
According to the website, the “Pepsi” GMT Master is something that every Rolex fan is wishing for and last year, the company introduced the GMT Master II in blue/black combination which was thus coined the Batman GMT. The writers said they were hoping for a Pepsi GMT and they aren’t expecting any aesthetic or technical changes aside from the Cerachrom bezel in red and blue.
And it did materialize. The new GMT-Master II replica has a bezel in red and blue Cerachrom insert made in a single piece, something that’s never been seen before. It has a white gold case measuring 40mm and it has a price tag of the origian is $38,250.
This is the Rolex model that has a date aperture with a Cyclops eye lens over it. It is also recognized for its fluted bezel, which you should also find in knockoffs. The Rolex Datejust is easily recognizable from its date aperture with a distinctive magnifying Cyclops eye, and also from the fluted bezel. This model has varying bracelets and dial colors and materials. From yellow Gold to black leather.
This model was released in 1956. It was designed for scientists who sometimes visit places with different forces in magnetic fields. The watch should be good enough to withstand 1,000 gauss. The European Council for Nuclear Research has approved of the Milgauss’ ability to do so. It has an orange second hand with shaped in a lightning bolt. These are the important features to look for in replicas.
Rolex Daytona with Red Daytona Lettering and Panda Dial
The article published on Monochrome went on to say that Cerachrom bezels are the newest trend for Rolex and they possess excellent qualities including being scratch resistant as well as being able to prevent fading. Having said this, Monochrome wanted a revival of the Daytona 6263 one of the coolest Rolex watches ever made. They predict that the Daytona will have a Panda dial and a red text that read DAYTONA, with a black bezel and screwed pushers. They also predict that it would still be a platinum case but with a black ceramic bezel.
Unfortunately Rolex didn’t launch a Daytona with the details that Monochrome predicted. Although they introduced a new Daytona, it has a platinum case, pave diamond dial, bezel set with 36 diamonds and baby blue subdials.
Although the GMT-Master was designed essentially for professional use, its combination of peerless functionality and rugged good looks has attracted a wider travelling public. As well as appreciating its ability to display different time zones, these travellers admire the robustness and versatile appearance that make the GMT-Master eminently suitable for globetrotting and, indeed, for any occasion.
he Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date GMT Master is part of the Rolex Professional Watch Collection. Designed in collaboration with Pan American Airways for use by their pilots and navigators, it was launched in 1954.
An updated Rolex GMT Master II was released in 2005. This new model features a number of technical changes, such as Rolex’s patented Parachrom hairspring as well as a larger Triplock crown (from the diver’s watches). The new model also has several cosmetic changes, such as larger case, hands and hour markers and also a new bezel made using an extremely hard ceramic material that is designed to be more scratch and fade resistant. Also included in the update is a new and more luxurious style of bracelet that has heavier solid links and a machined clasp. The stainless steel version now joins the precious metal versions by having highly polished centre links on its bracelet, which gives the watch a more dressy appearance but can be prone to scratches when used as an everyday watch.
