New GMT Master II 126710GRNR: “Bruce Wayne” Two Tone Bezel

The new GMT Master II 126710GRNR is undoubtedly one of the most understated two-tone bezel designs in the GMT-Master II series. It features a 40mm Oystersteel case with a gray and black bidirectional Cerachrom bezel, marked with PVD platinum coated 24-hour graduation. The black dial and 18K white gold hour markers where enthusiasts to describe it as “monochromatic." Some Rolex fans also nicknamed this black and gray bezel "Bruce Wayne" aligning it with the same series as the blue and black bezel 126710BLNR nicknamed "Batman" and “Batgirl”.

The History of GMT-Master II

The history of the Rolex GMT-Master II dates back to 1954 when Rolex introduced the first GMT-Master watch to meet the needs of international airline pilots. This watch could display two different time zones simultaneously, making it a favorite among global travelers. Over time, the GMT-Master series evolved, and in 1982, Rolex launched the GMT-Master II. This updated version featured more precise time zone adjustment and a more modern design.

Evolution of the Classic Design

The design of the GMT-Master II has undergone several improvements but has always retained its iconic look, particularly the two-tone Cerachrom ceramic bezel. This bezel helps distinguish between day and night. From the original "Pepsi" (red and blue) to the later "Batman" (blue and black) and "Sprite" (green and black) versions, each new color release has instantly attracted wide attention in the watch community.

Features of the New GMT-Master II 126710GRNR

The new 126710GRNR features a subtle gray and black two-tone Cerachrom bezel with PVD platinum coated 24-hour graduations. The 24-hour hand and the "GMT-Master II" text on the dial are in striking green, standing out vividly against the grayscale backdrop. GMT Master II gray and black bezel was already introduced last year in models with yellow gold (126718GRNR) or two-tone yellow gold (126713GRNR). The new 126710GRNR with oystersteel is more affordable and therefore more accessible.
