They say imitation is the best form of flattery...

The Rootbeer CHNR had the Wow factor that you hadn't seen before in a black/brown bezel and how it balances with the steel and rosegold in TT version. Until now...

Of course almost every brand already has their own Pepsi (red/blue) versions or "homages", but I didn't think one would come out for the Rootbeer CHNR.

Now when I look at my CHNR, I can't help but think back to this upcoming Ball model. Kind of disgusted because I don't think it looks good at all. Anybody else upset?

Honestly, it shouldn’t matter nor hinder your enjoyment of your GMT CHNR in any way.

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”

Oscar Wilde got it right.

Doesn't bother me - it's just some brown coloration on an otherwise completely different watch.

You don't have to buy one. Just like probably no one else will

brown + black on a watch bothers me in general.

Too much going on on that poor dial...

I’m not a huge fan of this. Enjoy your CHNR, this shouldn’t interfere with that.

I didn't know the color brown or bicolor bezels was trademarked by Rolex, stop getting disgusted and just enjoy your watch.
