The BLNR is one of my favorite watches. I'd like to have one but it's in too much demand right now. I can't see a little blue being worth $2000 over over the all black GMT IIc in the secondary. Well, at least it's not to me.

The image below appears that the lume is the traditional green SuperLuminova that Rolex used with the original 116710 (GMT-C) when it was first introduced.

I was wondering the exact same thing Sheldon! Looking forward to responses from BLNR owners.

For those who asked about the lume I think it is more blue in low light area and more green in places with no light at least this what i recognize from my blnr

The BLNR only uses blue chromalight. In varying shades of darkness it can be perceived differently, there's also the subject of the type of camera used and whether it represents images naturally or the photo has some finishing.

This might be an odd question but what is the reference number on your warranty cards? Mine ends 116710B but on the Rolex site 116710BLNR is used. I bought from an AD but want to make sure they didn't mess up the paperwork. From what I've heard, Rolex looks for any discrepancy during service so I'd like to get it straight. Thanks

Perhaps a unique alphanumeric designation used for a specific market or region...

I'm in! In love with this future GMT classic! Debating how to keep wearing it without giving it too much "wear and tear." Oh, moderation, how I hate thee. P.S. My ref# also ends in B from USA AD.

Alone and with friends…

Nice Bruiser but not for me. I went with Classic Sub C. What we all have to realise is there is NO wrong answer. Only right and right for you.

I think you're in the wrong thread, but you are correct. Buy what you love, not what others love! Enjoy your new timepiece!

Theres always been bad connotations (although never entirely true) about Rolex owners and wearers (sometimes that view has been solidified, almost did it here with someone's response to my post) then there are responses from Michel that ensure me there are true enthusiasts out there.

Seems like a general split: the purists and the newer generation, if you will... but I always thought it was common amongst the Rolex WISs that something like Pepsi or Rootbeer or Hulk was used.

Johnbeth is right in the sense IF I walk into an AD and ask them about "the new Batman GMT" I might get a weird stare from the girl who's trained to know Rolex, but if the girl is also a WIS, then that may not be the case!

Anyway, beautiful watch. Enjoy it, I certainly like it...

Wow...it would appear that some of the Patek WIS's are a bit tightly wound and persnickety about the immaturity of many of us long time Rolex wearers.

In essence, the Submariner itself is a nickname settled on by Rolex after having trademarked several other nicknames and seeing which one resonated the most with their board members and marketing dept. some of the nicknames that ultimately didn't make the cut were "Frogman, Manometer and Dive-O-Graph. Of which, I believe there are at least a few examples of the Dive-O-Graph in the hands of some very well funded collectors. In fact, I think I once saw a pic of an existing Frogman in a collection as well!

As far as the sales staff at the AD's go, well....let's just say that their are countless threads about how unacceptable it is that they are so ignorant to the most basic levels of product knowledge for this brand.

Sometimes, I like to drink a Rootbeer or Pepsi whilst wearing my Hulk and watching Batman! And, if the scenes are really scary I will cuddle up to my Panda, as the Beast is to bulky and manly for such immature behavior!!!

Mine has this too. I'm wondering as well. I have a call into AD for clarification. I'll post here when I find something[IMG][/IMG]

Nice to be a new member! I have truly fallen in love over the past few months. I bought him about a week ago,and the other watches are pissed! My TT sub that's a whopping one month got one day on the wrist but the DJIIs have been benched. The watch is near perfection, with the Plat Daytona being perfection. But not for me for 75k.....ImageUploadedByTapatalk1391311256.627202.jpg

It really is something special! So glad I got it over the LN. I think the BLNR suits a younger style and I'm still mid-thirties, lol.
