Three Summer Looks For Your Rolex GMT-Master II

Three Summer Looks For Your Rolex GMT-Master II

The GMT-Master is perhaps the most colorful Rolex professional watch out there. I cannot think of any current Rolex model, except the Datejust, with as much depth in options when it comes to colorways. So we figured that we would find the best combinations out there to match this very eclectic Rolex model. We decided to utilize @Rolexdiver’s images on Instagram, since he both crushes on Rolex and on watch photography. Why don’t we start with the GMT-Master II BLNR, aka the Batman.

Rolex Batman

This modern classic has a killer half black, half blue Cerachrom (ceramic) bezel. The gorgeous colorway first came on the scene in 2013, and was killed off by Rolex in 2018. The brand picked up on the watch world’s disappointment, releasing an updated variation in 2021. @Rolexdiver is showing us the first generation, reference 116710BLNR. He complimented the watch’s blue bezel and GMT hand with a matching blue Everest Band with a tang buckle. One of the major benefits about this combination is that the Batman’s bracelet stays minty perfect. The polished center links on the Oyster bracelet and clasp won't get damaged when you have an Everest Band installed. Beauty and benefits. Next up is a fun combination that can only be achieved with two Everest Bands.

The incredibly popular Rolex GMT-Master II BLRO, aka Pepsi, is next on our hot list this summer. @Rolexdiver matches this incredibly hard to acquire watch with a red tang buckle Everest Band and a blue Everest Band. Sadly, we do not offer this combo without buying both straps. But if you do buy both, you will have three strap options beyond just the bracelet. Maybe not a bad move, especially with the Fourth of July right around the corner. We close out with a killer combination on the GMT Coke!

Finally, we had to travel back in time to the 1990’s when the infamous Rolex GMT-Master II came in the very popular “Coke” variant. @rolexdiver shows off his bi-color black and red bezel GMT-Master II with the black tang buckle Everest Band. This obviously is our most versatile watch strap and really could go with any of the watches mentioned above just as well as their color-matched variations. If you are on the fence about which Everest Band to get first, we always suggest black. Quick side note, notice that the dial has SWISS T<25 on it? This dial text denotes the amount of tritium used in the luminescent paint. Pretty cool Easter egg, huh?

Hopefully, we helped a little when it comes to finding a perfect strap combination for your Rolex GMT-Master. Everest has quite a few options to choose from, and we are always happy to help. It can seem a touch overwhelming with all the options we offer, but know that any strap option you choose will look like a ten on your Rolex GMT-Master.
