GMT Master is a very popular series of Rolex, it is the only GMT model Rolex has unveiled. Besides Submariner, GMT Master is my most favorite Rolex. In 2018 BaselWorld, Rolex published a brand new GMT Master II watch, whose reference number is 126710, the watch has a Pepsi bezel that is in blue and red. While the biggest change on this GMT Master II lies in its bracelet, which is Jubilee style, it looks so special, because we only see Oyster bracelet on previous Rolex GMT models. Once this new Rolex watch was available, it was soon copied by two factories in our watch market, one factory has an unknown name, the other is GM, the latter makes the better Rolex GMT Master II 126710 replica watch, because they used 904L stainless steel on case and bracelet.
The case is 40mm in diameter, it is made with real 904L stainless steel, which is more scratch resistant than 316L stainless steel. Now, it seems like a lot of factories has used 904L stainless steel in the making of their Rolex replicas, but do you know AR is the first factory that used this innovative steel material? Since the end of 2017, AR factory has used 904L steel in their replica Rolex watches. The bezel is Pepsi style, the top half is blue while the bottom half is in red color, I love the color design of Pepsi bezel, by the way, the bezel is made with real ceramic. White 24-hour markers on the bezel are engraved in a correct depth. Screw-down case back is made of solid 904L stainless steel, please do not often open the case back if you want the replica watch always maintain a good water resistant performance.
On black dial, there are four hands on the center, GMT hand has a red stem with a big triangle tip that is filled with luminous material. Both hands and hour markers have thin silver edge, with more original Swiss lume filled in the center. Check the dial lume in dark place, it is in blue and looks very strong. Date window has black date font, which is clearly readable due to its white background. The thickness of date font is very close to that of genuine GMT Master II 126710, the date font is also in the center of the window, not too left or too right. Take a closer look at the inner bezel, there are silver engravings of “ROLEX”.
The Jubilee bracelet is the biggest feature of this new replica Rolex 126710. I do not why Rolex abandoned Oyster and used such type of bracelet on this sporty watch. The Jubilee bracelet lacks sporty style, and I do not think it fits this GMT Master well. However, I still received a lot of inquiries about this replica Rolex watch from my clients.
By the way, the replica is equipped with an Asian ETA 2824-2 automatic movement with functional GMT. Now, the best quality GMT Master 126710 replica is made by GM factory, no other factories were manufacturing this replica.
