The world’s most important watch and jewelry brands showcase their latest innovations and creations during the annual Baselworld conference in Switzerland, and ahead of its premiere (March 22), Rolex has unveiled the GMT Master II Pepsi 126710 BLRO, a timepiece that features a Jubilee bracelet, a new movement, and finally boasting a stainless steel 40mm composition.

Pleasing collectors worldwide with this stunning release, the watch was previously available in white gold only, and priced at about $9,250 USD. The 40mm GMT also boasts a slightly redesigned case that is slightly thinner and more tapered.

In addition, the other main focal point is directed at the two-tone blue and red Pepsi bezel now rendered in steel. The Cerachrom bezel is equal to the previous WG version, with a monobloc construction.

For its interior, the GMT Master II 126710 BLRO houses a new generation calibre 3285 movement. In terms of functionalities, it still incorporates the signature markings with a 24h red GMT hand in the middle for home time, central Mercedes hour hand with adjustments per one-hour increments, and date at 3 o’clock. The Calibre 3285 stores up to 70h of power reserve and features a Parachrom hairspring and an improved escapement.

Furthermore, the timepiece’s new five-link polish and brushed Jubilee bracelet is paired with an Oysterclasp, meaning the sporty bracelet is fitted with the Easylink rapid extension system.
