Try to Great Rolex GMT-Master Bezel

Rolex Batman GMT-Master II rolex-089058_06

Of all the design details of Rolex GMT-Master, the watch bezel is the most distinctive. GMT-Master features 24-hour markings and the ability to rotate in both directions. Its borders are an important part of the watch’s display of multiple time zones. However, in addition to its functionality, the bezel design also contributes a huge amount to the style of the Rolex GMT Maestro – especially when it’s in a two-tone color scheme.
While the fundamental look of the GMT-Master bezel has remained relatively unchanged over the last six decades, there have been crucial changes to the materials used. Rolex has made an assortment of different bezels for the GMT-Master over the decades. Different materials have been used – Bakelite, aluminum, Cerachrom, and precious gems – and these GMT bezels have been provided in a range of different colors.
When Rolex introduced the first GMT-Master in the mid-1950s, the watch came equipped with a bidirectional rotating bezel with a two-tone Bakelite insert featuring radium luminous markings. Bakelite was the world’s first completely synthetic plastic that was lightweight, pretty durable, and easy to mold into many different shapes at http://www.localdlish.com.
Given those amazing traits, Bakelite was initially considered a good material choice for the bezel insert of the GMT-Master watch. However, it was soon apparent that Bakelite was too brittle and had a tendency to crack – plus the radioactive glowing numerals embedded into it also posed a potential health hazard.
Therefore, Rolex replica switched over to non-luminous aluminum bezel inserts for later GMT-Master 6542 models in the late 1950s. What’s more, Rolex service centers also typically replaced any damaged Bakelite bezels with aluminum ones. As a result, it’s hard to find an old Rolex GMT-Master 6542 with its original Bakelite bezel, today, and many surviving original Bakelite inserts show obvious signs of wear or damage.

Rolex BatmanRolex made two different Bakelite bezels for the GMT-Master ref. 6542. There was the bi-color blue and red version for the stainless steel models, later nicknamed the “Pepsi” bezel. Legend has it that replica Rolex chose color separation to make it easier for pilots to distinguish between day and night — the red part is day and the blue part is night. Others, however, insist that its two-color appearance was designed to reflect the attitude indicators that were installed on various aircraft at the time. Either way, the separated-color bezels are now considered one of the defining features of Rolex’s GMT-Master line.

When the Rolex Batman was launched at Baselworld 2013, everyone took notice. Not only was the blue and black bezel a really contemporary and cool iteration of the dual-toned bezel that we’ve come to realize and love from the GMT-Master collection, but it was also the first of its kind. Rolex replica had already been using ceramic in their bezels for about ten years, but it wasn’t until the Batman GMT that they were able to use this tricky material to create a two-tone bezel.
The result was a rich and saturated, bi-color bezel that would be much stronger and hold color exponentially better than its previous aluminum counterparts. Not only was the original Batman – the ref. 116710BLNR – the first bi-color ceramic bezel, but it was also the only one available on a stainless steel GMT watch for a few years. That’s because, at the same time, Rolex moved their red and blue Pepsi GMT from all stainless steel to 18K platinum.
While some people adore this gorgeous update to the fan-favorite Batman GMT-Master II, others still favored the Oyster bracelet, saying that it went against the inherent sportiness of the GMT-Master collection.

Beyond the new Jubilee bracelet, the case of the new ref. 126710BLNR GMT-Master II has also been redesigned for a pretty more refined feel on the wrist. Technically speaking, it’s the same 40mm case diameter, but the 126710BLNR is designed to feel a bit thinner and more rounded on the wrist, while the case of the ref. 116710BLNR is a little more angular and squared-off in its shape.
Another one of the most significant upgrades was the new Cal. 3285 movement featuring the brand’s proprietary Chronergy escapement. The ref. 126710BLNR also features a brand new Chromalight lume on its Maxi dial, which gives the watch a striking blue glow for up to eight hours. As if the dial wasn’t prominent enough, Rolex has an oversized dial for the watch, adding a luminous block and Mercedes-Benz-style hands for a bolder, sportier look on the wrist.
