The most intuitive appearance of Rolex GMT Ref.126710 is its red and blue outer ring. Because it is similar to the color of Pepsi coke, it is also called “Pepsi circle” in the market.
Since the GMT series was born in 1954, the outer ring has undergone three generations of evolution. From the earliest plastic material to aluminum alloy, until 2005, the Cerachrom ceramic outer ring was used. The first batch of Cerachrom ceramic outer rings were all black. In order to facilitate the distinction between day and night in the second time zone, in 2013, Rolex launched the world’s first integrated blue and black two-color Cerachrom word circle. The firing of such two-color ceramic rings is very difficult, because it is necessary to control the “color of the two colors” and the “boundary between colors”.
The red and blue two-color “Pepsi ring” mentioned above is easy to realize on the metal aluminum ring, but it is super difficult to switch to ceramics. On the red and blue circle, red is the base, and the blue part is colored later. When firing red, if the temperature is too high, the red color will disappear; if the temperature is too low, the color will turn black. Therefore, the red and blue ceramic rings were only configured for high-end platinum models before this.
For this red and blue ceramic ring GMT, in addition to the sound of applause in the domestic market, many watch friends are complaining about its strap. I think the “five-bead chain + oyster buckle” is really ugly, not as good as the previous “oyster plate + oyster buckle”. Such a change is not a sudden convulsion of Rolex. The five-bead chain belt was already used on the original GMT series, but it was abandoned later. Therefore, many watch friends have never seen the combination of GMT + five-bead chain belt, and they feel unacceptable at once. But to be honest, after you get started with the real thing, you will indeed feel that the five-bead chain belt will appear too “mature”, without the simplicity and sportiness of the previous oyster-style belt.
In the era when optional straps were available, the GMT with the five-bead chain belt would be a little more expensive than the one with the Oyster plate belt, because the five-bead chain belt has more and more scattered parts, and the processing will naturally be more complicated. The advantage of such detailed replica watch details is that it fits the wrist better, but there are also two disadvantages at the same time. First, if your hand hair is thick, it is easy to get caught; second, the more holes there are for connection, the easier it is to make the strap feel “loose”.
What I am sharing this time is this brand new Ref.126710. When it is not used and the replica watch head is not installed, it has obvious signs of drooping, and it is not as strong as the Oyster strap. Such “loose” signs are more likely to occur on the Rolex version of the precious metal version with high material density, so Rolex uses a wear-resistant ceramic sleeve inside the watch section of some gold models. It is a pity that this time the steel model Ref.126710 is not matched. In other words, it will definitely become more “broken” after long-term use (10 years). It is worth noting that the official Rolex will not deal with this kind of broken watch strap, and it is even more difficult to replace a new watch strap at your own expense. In the later stage, you can only use a third-party company to “clamp the strap” by yourself. “, so that it can be restored to its original firm state as much as possible.
In terms of appearance and function, the five-bead chain belt has some obvious “disadvantages” compared with the oyster plate belt, but because it can’t make the old users who bought the platinum model feel cold, Rolex is still resolutely in steel. A five-bead chain strap is used on the style. Faced with such a situation, many watch friends expressed that they would replace the Oyster strap with the new GMT later. Therefore, when we got the new steel shell red and blue ring GMT, not only watch friends were very concerned, but even we were eager to know whether the old and new GMT straps could be interchanged.
So we brought another old GMT, which is also with the black and blue circle. After removing the straps of the old and new models, we put them together for comparison. From the photo above, we can clearly see the difference in the drilling holes of the old and new GMT case. First, the hole diameter of the old GMT is relatively small, while the hole diameter of the new GMT is large; second, the position of the hole of the old model is slightly higher than that of the new GMT.
According to this actual situation, the news delivered before is correct, and indeed cannot be replaced. We also put it on and tried it on purpose. Although the strap can be buckled on the case, the spring lugs used to connect the strap and the case cannot smoothly enter the holes on the inside of the case, and can only rely on a small amount of friction force to maintain. It is very easy to cause the strap to fall off when worn on the hand in this way, and then the replica watch falls directly to the ground.
The biggest reason for making such a change is that Rolex wants to increase the appearance difference between the old and new movement models to promote the sales of new models. Because although the new 32/22 series movement has a lot of upgrades compared to the old movement, the changes such as longer power storage, improved performance, and slight changes in adjustment methods cannot be quickly perceived from static environments.
