Actually thatís fine with me too as a 116719 owner. I think it looks better with the oyster.

Hope it works out!

So presumably the new Jubilee also fits the older GMTs? I can see a bit of bracelet trading going on

It looks like it fits perfectly. Thanks for the test fit!

You would need a BLNR and swap the 24hr hand as well as the bezel. Expensive mod unless you would prefer a BLNR on jubilee.

Edit: Wow, so an Oyster does fit. I hope most people never find out since it will make this even harder to get.

Are you seeing any extra shine/glint to the new Oystersteel?

Very sloppy of Rolex to allow an Oyster to fit so perfectly if they were going to fit this with a Jubilee, seems to be a running theme with them lately.

This is great news, I’m at the top of the list and can’t get the call soon enough. I like the jubilee but at the end of the day I like the oyster better.

Oystersteel is no different. They simply gave 904L a name like everything else.

It's not sloppy but rather on purpose. Now we can expect future GMTs offered on Jubilee bracelets. And potentially a BLRO on Oyster at some point.

WG owners needn't be upset about this because ADs have been told to say you can't do it.

I believe they can be had for around $1800-2200 for the 78200. The Daytona bracelet is more expensive around $2500 I think.

OMG
As a 116719 owner I'm a little pissed off. Rolex should stop producing WG sport models period.
If I've got the order right
WG Yatchmaster II - then came SS
WG Skydweller - then came SS
WG GMT Pepsi - then came SS

Next should be 116619

I'm done with Rolex WG period

Thinking/speaking as the owner of a 116719 BLRO I’m having trouble getting my head around this (tonight’s wonderful wines probably don’t help).

I’ll be getting a 216710 soon enough. Maybe I’ll flip the head and keep the jubilee to swap in and out on my 116710LN....I think I’ve had stupider ideas!

What’s the cheapest way to do this? Would the bracelet off my Explorer 214270 work? Could one order an oyster bracelet without already owning a GMTII?

It'a an expensive mod, but well worth it. I like the look much better on the oyster.

Just WOW!! This is crazy move by Rolex.

All we got to see now if the Jubilee bracelet is same as on DJ 41?

I mean, I know some folks who wanted to get this Pepsi SS as well. Now, they don't need to. Just get a jubilee bracelet (from Dj 41) and its the same watch!! Or else just wear the same WG watch with Oyster bracelet!!

Wow.

This is something.

I actually outfitted my BLNR with a sub bracelet. I’ve got a brandy new PCL bracelet. And a Pepsi coming shortly.

This is interesting. And I love the jubilee. But this is still super interesting.
