Joking aside, your comments show you are not well informed on this topic. Instead of asking me not to spread rumors, you would be better able to contribute to the discussion by reading the pages in this thread to better understand what we're actually talking about. That's not personal. It's just the truth.

i said that with the Tudor Harrods edition. It was sold out before they announced it and posted pics. They advertised a watch that at the time of listing it was not even available

Guys, Iím pretty certain theyíll just roll into the 126710 models.... they wonít leave people only on stainless option especially when black is classic (though it is time for a red hand) and BLNR is one of their hottest models. NTM they sold the Pepsi, Coke, Black,etc alongside each other forever.

Agreed, it'll just end up as a 126710 model once existing stocks are sold out and production of the new model increases. It's not in the catalogue as you can't order it, but there must be some models floating around in transit to dealers worldwide.

The biggest question would be will it be Jubilee only when that happens though? Steel GMTs only have Jubilee bracelets to leave GMTs on Oyster bracelets for PM models only?

They announce a new model and state the discontinuation of the previous model. Usually has been the case with every modern new watch they have.

This assumes that they are assembled, vs. simply sitting there as unassembled parts.



I'd think the all black version, with the green 24hr hand, would be first to "go" i.e. receive the updated movement/case and a red hand.


I think so... itís almost 10 years after the green hand came out.

I have been told Rolex control the link to the AD websites ,so they are the ones that have removed the watches , the AD has no idea why and havenít been told of any discontinuation of either watch.

This is true for the Datejust 41. Not all of them are shown on the dealers site I went to. Just the rhodium dial and white gold bezel is displayed.

According to the price list, the cheapest GMT with an oyster bracelet will be the TT CHNR. The cheapest GMT will be the SS BLRO and it will only come with a Jubilee bracelet. Looks like they're no longer producing the old movement and anything other than old stock will be in the new movement which makes sense.
According to price list the cheapest GMT oyster is the TT LN(12400 CHF)

It seems that a new movement isn't enough to justify discontinuation...
The majority of the GMT models still run the 3186 movement.
