Those that missed out on the now-impossible to buy 126710 BLRO “Pepsi” GMT Master II, will be delighted to learn that Rolex is releasing an updated version to its popular 116710 BLNR “Batman” GMT Master II. While many questioned Rolex’s decision to release one of its most sought after models paired with a Jubilee bracelet, watch enthusiasts are speculating that the updated “Batman” will eventually grow on them, much like the 26710 BLRO did, after being seen in person.

On top of the bracelet, the updated Batman receives Rolex’s new caliber 3285 movement — a movement that promises accuracy of -2/+2 seconds per day, and has a power reserve of 70 hours. Those with the earlier version might want to hang on to theirs as with the announcement of this new model comes the discontinuation of the 116710 BLNR and the all-black 116710LN version.

Those lucky enough to reserve this new watch can expect to pay CHF 8,800 ($8,850 USD) for retail, while the rest of us will most likely be paying a hefty premium. Check back soon for more Basel World 2019 news.
