The Rolex GMT-Master II received a major update in 2018, when Rolex unveiled the ref. 126710BLRO. Its release marked the first instance of a Cerachrom ceramic red and blue "Pepsi" bezel being fitted to a stainless steel watch. Previously, the iconic bi-color ceramic insert was only available on precious metal versions of the GMT-Master II; however with the release of the GMT-Master II 126710BLRO, Rolex brought back the classic red and blue “Pepsi” bezel and introduced a number of other updates and improvements. The next-generation Caliber 3285 movement provides the ref. 126710BLRO with an increased 70 hour power reserve, while a refined case shape and Jubilee bracelet further differentiate it from Rolex’s other sports watches and make this timepiece a modern take on a true classic.
Included with this ref. 126710BLRO GMT-Master II is the original box and papers, which correspond to a purchase date of September, 2018. This timepiece is in overall excellent pre-owned condition with no prominent or noticeable signs of wear.
