Nice resolution in pics. This piece is a stunner for many reasons. I’d take this over the white gold version anyday, in an apocalypse. Meaning, all things being equal, I’d choose the steel jubilee version with duller bezel over the white gold version. The bracelet really hugs the wrist unlike the oyster bracelets..... to the point that hereon, I’m only going to buy strap or jubilee rolexes. Not kidding. As much as I love my submariner... I find this new Pepsi fits “taut, but not snug,” better than any other watch I own. I believe Rolex hit a homerun with this release. It’s tastefuk without being boring... it pays tribute to the past without living in it.

Great perspective. I agree the Jubilee bracelet is immensely comfortable. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Cheers.

Noice!

Question is, are these available in Stralya now. I wouldn't mind flying over the ditch just to grab one.

Cheers mate.

Thnaks you for sharing this review Bruce. Looks like we got our BLROs at around the same time.

I can honestly say, its my favourite modern Rolex reference and there isnt a single thing Id change about it.

Great review. What are your thoughts on the new blue and red colors of the Mk2 Pepsi? I just got mine on April 2nd, and it seems amazing to me.

Great Review. The timeless design of the GMT Master, a true classic. My 16750 GMT look as good as new today. It never goes out of style.
