More exciting watch news arrives from this year’s Basel World. Following the announcement of a two-tone Sea-Dweller, Rolex has unveiled a special take on its white gold GMT-Master II “Pepsi” (Ref. 126719 BLRO).
Maintaining its white gold construction, blue and red Cerachrom bezel, and Oyster bracelet, the new “Meteorite” GMT-Master II is still powered by the updated COSC-certified automatic caliber 3285 movement, but its dial receives a completely different finish. This time around, the dial is made from a meteorite — no word on if the material was taken from the Gibeon Meteorite like the past issued Daytona — and displays a unique splintered effect due to the iron and nickel composition of the meteorite.
No word yet on availability, but we can only guess that this version will also be highly limited. The retail price is set at CHF 36,600 (approximately $36,800 USD).
