Rolex GMT-Master II “Batman” Returns with the Sportier Oyster Bracelet

June 3rd, 2021

It is customary for Rolex to refine its existing iconic watch designs instead of replacing them outright. And this year, 2021, has brought the recursive change for the brand.

The best example of Rolex’s long-standing tradition is ideally the re-introduced GMT-Master II stainless steel watches. Since 2018, Rolex made the production pause of the classic three-link Oyster bracelet in the GMT-Master II line.

Thus, the brand’s announcement of the popular GMT-Master II stainless steel models, besides other Rolex 2021 novelties, glittered enthusiasts’ eyes globally. This means that the iconic GMT-Master II Ref. 127610BLRO and GMT-Master II 127610BLNR will now be available once again with the sportier Oyster bracelet.

The New Bracelet Option for GMT-Master II Fans

Introduced in 2018, the stainless steel GMT-Master II collection was available with the brand’s dressier Jubilee bracelet. This year, Rolex returns the sportier Oyster bracelet to the iconic “Batman” and “Pepsi” models, offering two classic bracelet choices for its GMT-Master II lovers.

However, besides the new Oyster bracelet option, Rolex kept all other features same that characterise the GMT-Master II series. For instance –

  • The latest GMT-Master II features a similar 40mm steel case.
  • They are water-resistant up to 100m.
  • More significantly, the watches retain their defining bi-colour bezels in blue-&-red and blue-&-black.
  • And of course, the Rolex’ trademark Cyclops lens complete the signature GMT-Master look.

The new GMT-Master II of 2021 also retains the pure classic sporty Rolex dial style. The dial features the signature Mercedes hands and a blend of dot and baton hour markers.

Moreover, the in-house Calibre 3285 powers the current GMT-Master II models like its previous siblings. This automatic movement offers 70hour of power reserve and beats at 28,800bph.

A Notable Rolex Announcement

Rolex has declared that it will sell its bracelets to customers independently. It is a notable shift as the brand has only sold its bracelets by fitting them to watches. However, this signifies that if you own a GMT-Master II Jubilee bracelet model, you can buy an Oyster bracelet independently for that timepiece. You won’t have to buy a new GMT-Master II to savour the sporty feeling of the Oyster bracelet.

Well, it’s no secret that the Rolex GMT-Master II Batman is among the most iconic and coveted watches in the world. Its price only tends to surge in the pre-owned market. Potential watch buyers often pay top prices for a pre-owned Rolex Batman, especially if the watch is in good condition and comes as a complete set.
