Fabulous review Bo! I got my GMT IIC this past November. I LOVE it compared to the Sub I used to own.

I have an original 2007 which has been from Denali to Patagonia. The case and bracelet are nicked and scraped- crystal is still perfect as is the movement. Perhaps I'll get it serviced in 2017.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but after countless APs, IWCs, and even a Patek, I find that this will be the watch on my wrist more than 50% of the time. This informative review really helped make my decision.. thanks and look forward to other fantastic reviews that are sticky worthy!

Great review . I am now prompted to buy one, then have the polished center links brushed out to look like my other bracelets and call it a day....I just might do this..

There are certainly some points I'd have disagree with, but being a matter of personal preference, to each his own. I just didn't deduct points for those things.

But one thing I just didn't understand was listing the 24 click bezel (rather than the 120 clicks) as a con. That is a big improvement in my view, allowing much easier setting to another time zone. You're not tracking minutes, you're tracking hours. 24 hours in a day - 24 clicks, one for each hour. I'd put that under "Pros". I'd be curious why the OP found this an issue.

Brilliant review. Contributed majorly to my decision to pull the trigger on a GMT IIc!

Stunning review for a stunning timepiece. The GMT, like the sub, will live on until watches are irrelevant. aka NEVER

Fabulous! I just got me some edumacation on the GMT Master II. Great stuff!! Of particular note to me was the insane accuracy. That's always been a major concern for me with any watch.

Thanks for the wonderful review. My brother is buying this watch (his first Rolex) today and couldn't be happier with his choice!
