Probably the CHNR. I have the Pepsi and it looks better on me than the CHNR, but in other people I prefer the CHNR.

Great result for the CHNR considering all the BLRO hubris around!

My vote is CHNR. I like the bezel on the BLRO but not the bracelet.

CHNR up £1k on Jan 1st, one of the biggest % increases

Rolex know this piece is a massive hit.

I have the CHNR and a good friend of mine has the Pepsi and we put them both down and compared recently and both came to the conclusion the CHNR was a clear winner.

Never got a positive response from a non wis when I show them a pic or video of a Pepsi. With the Chnr it was mostly positive comments.

Looks awesome. Checking on Everest, the leather strap displayed has white stitching whereas yours appears to be same color as the leather. Did your stitching come in white and change over time? Or maybe im looking in the wrong place?

Both. They don't compete. They might as well be different watches.

The CHNR didn't interest me until I saw it in my AD's window (the only GMT Master I have ever seen on display at my AD). It wasn't anything like I thought it would be. To see it is to fully appreciate how the colour palette and textures work.

The BLRO took longer to turn up but it was worth the wait. Again, you think you know how it looks, then you see one in person. It's even better. Mine is from late 2020 and is the most successful rendition of the blue/red colour scheme I have seen so far on a ceramic insert.

If I could only have one it would be the BLRO, assuming I could get one at MSRP. The CHNR was easier and faster of obtain. Since they trade for approximately the same on the used market, the CHNR wins the value contest by default, although "value" is a debatable term if you're being gouged.
