It’s been a very strange year for the watch industry and we’re barely over halfway. First we had a plastic quartz imitation of the Speedmaster selling for as much as a Speedmaster, and then we had this: the perfect fake Rolex GMT-Master II 126720VTNR. Is it worth the hype?
It seems the GMT-Master has long been a bit of a guinea pig for luxury replica Rolex UK, a testbed for ideas that could make or break the company. Throwback to 1954 when the GMT-Master first came into the world, a collaboration with PanAm to furnish its international pilots—very publicly, of course—with best super clone watches that were capable of tracking several time zones at once.
Seems like a no-brainer decision associating a brand that wants to be seen as the tool of the professional with a major commercial airline, but back then the decision wasn’t so clear cut. At the end of the 40s, wartime aircraft development meant people could start to travel across the Atlantic by plane instead of boat, albeit in cramped, uncomfortable conditions. Swiss made replica Rolex banked on the growth of that industry and its uptake by affluent travellers, and sure enough, with the introduction of the jet engine, air travel soared.
To use a modern, trendy term, best 1:1 fake Rolex UK was agile enough to take risks like that. The first GMT-Master was very basic, the GMT hand simply geared to turn once every 24 hours alongside the other hands. Not a major addition by itself, and not hugely useful either. But by switching out the sixty-minute bezel of the Turn-O-Graph it was based on with a 24 hour one, AAA quality replica Rolex very cleverly refocused the watch for a new market with minimal effort. From there on in it was just a case of fixing what didn’t work and improving what did.
The first bezel was made from Bakelite, a precursor to plastic that was just too brittle. That was swapped out for the same aluminium used in other period watches like the Submariner. A quickset date feature was then added so date-changing was less of a chore. By 1983, the second iteration of the GMT-Master, the high quality fake Rolex GMT-Master II, finally gave users the ability to set the GMT hand independently, offering more flexibility than ever before. It was, in essence, perfect.
Where do you go from there? With improving technology, the answer is digital. A basic Casio can do everything the cheap copy Rolex GMT-Master does and a whole bunch more. These days, the phone in your pocket is even more impressive yet. The days of the mechanical watch were over.
The Rolex GMT-Master replica for sale, however, didn’t follow the same trend. It brushed its hair, had its teeth whitened and put on its best suit. It’s a pretty thing now, the introduction of the ceramic bezel in 2005 on a full gold version of the watch not only setting the tone for a new era of high quality fake Rolex, but once again unofficially crowning it as the brand’s guinea pig
It worked. For sure it worked. The Swiss movement replica Rolex GMT-Master is one of Rolex’s most popular watches, the variety of colour combos have renewed its focus as an immediately recognisable and desirable piece of jewellery. It’s coming up on two decades since it last risked life and limb to test the next great copy Rolex idea, and for 2022, it’s at it again.
So, what’s changed for the 2022 top fake Rolex GMT-Master II 126720VTNR? On the one hand, not a lot really. It still has the 40mm case with the wider lugs that the Submariner abandoned in 2020. It still sports the green GMT hand it first debuted in 2007. The bezel is two-tone ceramic, a 2013 technological upgrade from the single piece black item that resulted from an eight-year struggle to figure out how to pigment a single piece of ceramic with two colours.
On the other hand—quite literally—this is a first in the modern era of Rolex replica for sale UK that caters for left-handed owners. This isn’t the first left-handed Rolex, mind you. There have been left-handed versions of popular models like the Datejust, Submariner and even the GMT-Master in the past, plus unique left-handed only models like the King Midas.
Nevertheless, for the best quality fake Rolex of today this is a landmark moment that the GMT-Master has once again been squared up in the firing line for as chief guinea pig. If it’s successful, expect to see left-handed versions of other Rolex replica watches online appear. If it’s not … it will be successful so we don’t need to bother talking about that.
In practice, you’re basically looking at an upside-down watch here. The crown and all its settings work as though they were upside down, and I expect many right-handed owners of this high end replica watch uk will wind and set it as though it were still right-handed. The instant date change means you can’t see that it’s going the other way, so that doesn’t really matter.
