Astrange thing happens when something you think you know so well changes in ways you didn’t expect. In March, we were introduced to the perfect replica Rolex GMT-Master II with the left-sided crown (and date). I couldn’t even quite process the thing at first glance.
Rumors abounded prior to the official announcement and when I heard the possibility of a “lefty” or destro GMT, I said, “No way Swiss made fake Rolex does that.” And then it did. I wrote about it then, and the watch stayed with me for all this time, occupying valuable real estate in my head. I had to follow up. Just seeing it in a windowless (though gorgeous) room in the luxury copy Rolex “booth” at Watches & Wonders wasn’t enough. I needed to spend real quality time with the watch.
The choice of color for this watch was not necessarily a shocking one, but it could certainly be considered a showy one. Way back in 2007, best 1:1 replica Rolex released the very first steel GMT-Master II with a Cerachrom bezel. It featured a black dial, a green GMT hand, and an all-black bezel. Even some of the text on the dial was in a corresponding emerald hue. That watch harkened back to the all-black aluminum bezel models of old. In fact, there was a technical reason it was monochromatic as AAA quality fake Rolex had not yet landed on a scalable way to effectuate bi-color bezels in ceramic.
That breakthrough would take another six years. That’s when the cheap fake Rolex GMT-Master II 116710BLNR was released, the blue-and-black GMT, the “Batman.” I own that watch; I’ve had it since 2016 and you can read all about it here. What followed was a return to the famed “Pepsi” configuration in steel in 2018. Swiss movement fake Rolex also discontinued the all-black model along the way. Fast forward to 2022 and it releases this green and black model – with shades of the original ceramic monochrome watch but taken to its zenith, in more ways than one.
Of course, it wasn’t the bi-color bezel that had our jaws on the floor, but rather the orientation of the crown and the date. In addition to adding yet another bezel color to the mix, Rolex replica for sale also tweaked its 3285 movement to allow for a left-sided crown and new date aperture. The watch was released, as all modern GMTs are, on both an Oyster and a Jubilee bracelet.
And that was kind of it. If you know the model range, you know this super clone watch. There’s nothing more to say about the 40mm case, the bi-color Cerachrom bezel, the 70-hour power reserve in the chronometer-grade 3285 caliber, or the high quality fake Rolex bracelets with Easy Link extension. All of that remains. The only thing left for me to do was wear the thing – really experience it. And so I did.
