Rolex continues to build on their GMT-Master II collection with a surprising new reference 126710VTNR. Not only does the newest example get a black and green bezel, it gets a left handed crown set up. This curveball from Rolex joins the BLRO and BLNR models, which look to remain safe for another year in the line up. No sign of the LN returning. This marks the first time we’ve seen three unique bezel colors offered simultaneously by Rolex, and as eyebrow raising as the new bezel colors are, the real surprise here is the crown migrating to the other side of the case, and they’ve brought the date window and cyclops with them.
The newest GMT, which is refreshingly bereft of a nickname for the time being, gets all the same features we’ve come to know and love (or hate) with the GMT-Master II, from the 40mm steel case, ceramic bezel, and of course the fabulous 3285 caliber inside providing the GMT functionality with independently adjustable hour hand. Obviously, the movement required some technical alterations to support the new case layout, but this is largely the same GMT we’ve seen since 2018.
