Looks good. I've had my BLNR on a glide lock for the last couple years. Just recently put it back on the PCL Easylink (put the glidelock back on the SubC)

Same here. Switched out the bracelet from my sub and can’t get over how much I enjoy this thing now.

Really nice. I’ve personally never been a fan of polished center links; your mod makes a great watch even better.

Anyone know where to get a spare sub glidelock to put on the gmt? That is without having to trade in your pcl at the AD. I gave not seen any for sale.

Yay!

Had to put 3M tape on the clasp of my BLNR, as it really is a smudge and scratch magnet. The PCL is sexy when new, but ugly when scuffed.

If only one could buy a cheaper Rolex Sub oyster bracelet.

It doesn’t work IMO. I’ve tried a 16710 brushes oyster on my 116500 and the combo of brushed bracelet with polished lugs looks funny to me.

On a BLNR it looks amazing though, especially works well with the glidelock. I always used to suggest to BLNR owners that they just buy a 114060 put that on and Everest and use the bracelet on their BLNR. I guess the suggestion still stands but that was when you could get a BNIB 114060 for around $6k lol.

I prefer the PCL look on BLNR. I like the extra bling it adds.
