Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi, With New Movement 3285 [Industry News]

Rolex new GMT Master 2 has the same Cerachrom two-tone (red and blue) bi-directional bezel with 24-hour, night/day indication as well as the same black dial with luminous dot indexes. So what is new about this watch? Well, for one it has a Jubilee bracelet that hasn’t been seen on a GMT-Master since the vintage years and is only used on current Datejust models. The bracelet is made of Oyster Steel and has the Oysterlock clasp with 904L stainless steel for its steel watch cases. 904L steel is mainly used in the high technology, aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential.. But the biggest news about this watch is the new caliber – the 3285. The previous iteration GMT had the 3186 which didn’t have the new Chronergy escapement that has been added to new Rolex movements, allowing for a 15% gain in efficiency. It also boasts 70 hours of power reserve (beating out the caliber old caliber 3186’s 48 hours). Additionally, there are 10 patents on this watch.
