Introducing the Rolex GMT-Master 2 Ref. 126720VTNR: Left-handed design with green and black color borders
Southpaws have been ecstatic as Crown provided a devastating surprise.
Get this load! Of all models that Rolex might have released, with the watch's passion and commercial potential leaping at an all-time high, what we have this is... a GMT-Master II intended for lefties? No one could have expected this.
Naturally , after the re-launch of the iron model with the Oyster necklace last year, many of us expected some sort of GMT. But it was a twice surprise. Shocking number one: natural and black bezel. Stunning number two: the crown protrudes from the left side of the case. Inside watch parlance, it's a " disruption, " which means really designed for those who wear this timepiece on their right wrist.
In addition to these two adjustments, the watch retains the main rules of the GMT-Master II. Within the two-tone Cerachrom bezel, any Cyclops enlarged date windows, and the option of a Jubilee or Oyster bracelet having EasyLink adjustment system inside the clasp.
In order to generate this new reference, Rolex surely could maintain the reference. 3285 , the in-house movement along with 4Hz, 70-hour power reserve : positions the crown on the left of the case.
Panerai didn't bring this detro GMT into every color ways in the collection. As of now, just exists in green along with black configurations.
This is crazy! Rolex basically doesn't do anything like this any more. In fact , it hardly ever.
Auction fans may remember that at the Geneva in addition to Hong Kong auctions in 2018, Phillips did sell a couple of possibly unique Rolex GMT-Master refs. Model 6542 instructions one in the classic Pepsi setup, the other in gold using a brown bezel (both minus the crown guard). But these are usually commissioned. In fact , the rare metal model appears to be a introduced watch.
Those two vintage lefties did formally set a precedent to get destruction (a precedent more supported by the presence of the Lefty Cellini and Submariner models). So why is it so hard to think this new GMT exists? Due to the fact producing a quirky watch together with such niche appeal can feel very different from a modern Cartier. As Jack has composed before, only about 10% in the population is left-handed, that most watches have the the queen's on the right side -- convenient for the masses. Still here we are.
We now have the detro GMT-Master II in our lives. Rolex is known for making (and supplying) enough watches, and now they have attracting a completely different selection of buyers for watches that will fit the right wrist. Thus would a limited audience help to make these easier to grasp? Moment will prove everything.
The green and dark color change comes the location where the now-discontinued solid black board model left off. The thing is, when that watch turned out in 2007, Rolex didn't want to make a two-tone bezel away from ceramic. Then they made the actual BLNR, aka Batman : a blue and dark-colored bezel variant, itself produced because Rolex couldn't produce a Pepsi configuration out of fine ceramic. Now that the entire ceramic will be locked on the crown, I do believe this represents the grayscale green pattern that Rolex submariner has always wanted.
Without doubt people have referred to it as " Sprite" GMT, as there are several soda-inspired nicknames in the series, but the colors of Sprite are yellow and environment friendly. It's black and green, so that it is more of a " Starbucks" bass speaker. Frankly, to me, this doesn't resemble a drink of any kind plus more like the essence of the Iwc brand.
As well, it feels less like anything a Rolex would carry out and more like a Tudor proceed. I guess ideas and designs involving the two companies are getting deeper and closer to the center. We all only have to look at the Tudor Pelagos LHD to see a similar model in recent memory.
So what exactly is this? That is a wearable 40mm solid stainless Rolex sports watch, however one very specific design and style change that happens to be pretty democratic - allowing the proper wrist to go into a collapsed state. We don't know (yet) if this version is so new, is such a watch pushing the particular Rolex sport model directly into unobtainable territory, or if it is so specific that it's needs to quell the confusion that individuals haven't seen in the past a few years pass.
I happened to be obsessed with typically the destro watch and considered this watch would seem killer on either often the left or right arm. If there are enough additional fans like me, it will be hard to get.
