Coke or Pepsi might be the wrong choices.

Always liked the all black GMT bezel myself. The Coke and Pepsi color schemes look great in photos, but personally I think I'd grow tired of the color. Black just seems more enduring, no nonsense, and so far remains a stalwart in my collection.

On a completely unrelated topic, there may be other reasons to avoid Coke/Pepsi varieties...

Is it safe to....

I’m with you on the corn syrup, but I’d still like a coke in my collection.

I very rarely treat myself to a glass of coca cola, no matter how good it tastes I feel guilty afterwards, pure poison.

I use carbonated soda pop to take the finish off golf clubs. One night in a bucket with pop and the chrome is gone. Good for reducing glare on wedges. Cannot imagine what that does to you insides.....

Being a test rodent is not a good gig.

I have had a black 16700 for a long time. I switched it up with a Coke and finally a Pepsi insert.

Then I went to a Pepsi GMT 16750 and finally to a Pepsi GMT 1675. Pepsi just seems natural now.

I think the older generation Pepsi are the best, the color is so vibrant. When compared to plain black I think there's no contest, Pepsi wins. However, older gen Pepsi compared to the new ceramic, it surprises me that the new one looks almost dull, the color is of a powder red and blue, it just doesn't pop like the old one does.

My vote is for the older gen Pepsi, just can't beat that classic.

For me both are very bad for our health, I avoid them as much as possible.
