Rolex seems to have gone with two tone bezels for the GMTs (Pepsi, Batman/Batgirl,Rootbeer) and retired the solid black. Why doesn't Rolex make a ceramic Coke bezel? I would consider that in a SS model while I probably would go with Rootbeer for the TT. Thanks in advance.

I certainly find my 16700 more practicable than the 16710 in that regamrd, though love both - superb watches!

I don't understand this comment. The GMTII doesn't have a quickset date because it uses that crown position to move the hour hand, which is much more useful when travelling from one time zone to another. But if you want to just set it to a second time zone and then not mess with it, then the GMT and the GMTII are equivalent, aren't they?

Or do I misunderstand what you're saying?

Did the 16713 ever come with a full brown bezel?

Watchbox has a 16713 for sale and I can't tell if a 16718 bezel was set on a 16713 case.
