The Everest Journal

Since we speculated on a new Rolex GMT for 2021 here, we wanted to also take a look at how you can easily update its predecessors. We saw the introduction of the Rolex Ceramic GMT Master II 116710LN at Baselworld in 2007. Released in a stainless steel case with a black bezel and black dial, the green seconds hand is a striking feature! The beautiful polished center link Rolex oyster bracelet has a more solid clasp like the Rolex Daytona. Swiss-Made Everest watch bands allow you to not only preserve this piece of treasure, but you can also create a custom look for that perfect #wristshot.

Curved End Rubber Watch Band

The first favorite style is the curved-end rubber watch band. Finished with both a tang buckle and deployant, our favorite color this year is green and pulls out the green second hand on your 116710LN.

But, if that’s too much color for your business attire, pop on the classic black rubber watch band. You can never go wrong with the versatile Everest black rubber watch band. We strapped up with a tang buckle with this color. You can choose from a black, gold or silver tang buckle style.

Don’t just take our word for this gorgeous style though. 

"You guys are not joking about the quality of this product. At first, I was skeptical about the purchase due to the relatively high price. Raw material cost would be minimal for production. The product, however, is well worth the price. It's well engineered and precision crafted. Size is exactly as described. Recommended to a few friends as the watch now is much lighter and comfortable. -" Hyung K.

"Comfortable. Stylish. Tough. All characteristics of these high quality straps. I have the blue rubber and the black rubber that I frequently wear with my BLNR. Thanks Everest." - Matthew W.

Curved End Leather Watch Band

The second style is the Everest curved end leather watch strap. This strap is also available in the tang buckle and deployant buckle style. With nine different color options, you can really have fun with accessorizing for your style. The chestnut leather watch band really compliments the complexity of the Rolex Ceramic GMT Master II.

David D. says: "Love the strap - looks beautiful and fits the watch like a glove. I’ve purchased  straps (2 rubber and 1 leather) in the past 6 months and thoroughly enjoy them all."

Lorenzo C. shares: "Such a great product! It looks, fits and feels fantastic. Highly recommended!"

Curved End Racing Watch Band

If you live a little on the wild side, you may opt for the Everest racing leather watch band. It’s made of the same perforated leather used in Italian and German sports cars. It screams class and adventure. A favorite is the black with red stitching, in addition to the classic black with white stitching.

Curved End Nylon Watch Band

Another really fun Everest watch band is the curved end nylon option. Finished with a tang buckle, this Swiss-Made watch strap is offered in four different color options. We explore the details about the strap here. The black nylon is classic and the perfect solution to customize your Rolex GMT.

Steel End Link

The final favorite look this year is (drum roll please) not a curved end, it's a steel end link! The Everest patented designed steel end link leather watch strap is stunning on the Rolex GMT. The steel end link is a first of its design and closes the gap between a leather watch band and a Rolex case. We love the brown alligator embossed leather watch band.
