Rolex GMT-Master II “Batman” – bezel CU

Even a closer look reveals the excellent finish, such as the color transition on the bezel.
The second problem was achieving the desired red color for the blue-red Pepsi bezel, as there were no mineral-based pigments capable of producing a rich red color. After years of research, Rolex replica came to rely on a ceramic-based ceramic with the addition of chromium oxide, magnesium oxide, and rare earth oxides to produce the red portion of the ceramic bezel. To obtain the blue color, half of the bezel was again saturated with a metallic salt solution before being sintered.
The bezels of Batman and Pepsi are based on different ceramic substances, namely zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide, which explains why the blue color of the two bezels looks so different. On our test fake watch, the blue color looks much brighter than on the new Pepsi model. However, incident light plays a major role in our perception of color and, as usual, there are subtle differences between the Pepsi bezels.
Both materials used to form the track condense and shrink during the sintering process and must be worked to exact dimensions using diamond tools. To ensure that the numerals remain perfectly clear, the entire ring is coated with platinum using a PVD process and then carefully polished to leave the precious metal in the recessed dots and numerals. Both processes are proprietary to Rolex. In addition to being scratch-resistant, ceramic bezels have the added advantage of being UV-resistant and will not fade.

The shades of blue on the bezels of Batman and Pepsi are distinctly different. And it’s no wonder: they are based on different ceramics.
Extended Power Reserve
Like Pepsi, the updated Batman features the new time zone Caliber 3285. All Rolex self-winding replica watches, with the exception of the chronograph, are powered by either the Caliber 31xx (the old version) or the new Caliber 32xx, which has a 70-hour power reserve instead of 48 hours. Unlike the Caliber 3186, the new movement has a ball-bearing rotor. The proprietary Paraflex shock absorber is designed to improve performance in the event of a shock. But the biggest benefit for the wearer is the increased power reserve – instead of two days, the watch now offers almost three full days of power, largely due to the more efficient Chronergy escapement. The geometry of the pallet fork and escapement wheel has been optimized, and through the LIGA plating process, copy Rolex was able to create cut parts that are lighter in weight. The escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus alloy and is not affected by magnetic fields.
The well-known features of a Rolex movement remain unchanged: the extremely robust balance cock (instead of a unilateral balance chuck), the free spring with an overcoil made of paramagnetic niobium-zirconium alloy, and the fine regulator with a Microstella weight on the balance. The movement can be adjusted using a special tool without removing the movement from the case.
Rolex has improved the movement in terms of its core virtues of accuracy, longevity, and robustness. The decoration includes a sunburst motif. Hand engraving is not present and does not have the desired effect. The new movement can be easily identified by a small detail on the dial: a small Rolex crown has been inserted between the words “Swiss Made”.

Luxury Rolex GMT-Master II 116710LN Green GMT-Hand

Rolex GMT-Master IIThe movement inside the 116710 replaced the previous generation Cal. 3185, which had been in use since the late 1980s, and in fact, the two movements are almost identical. The main reason for the change in movement numbering is a slight update of the jumping mechanism and the introduction of Rolex’s proprietary blue Parachrom hairspring, replacing the Nivarox version in Cal. 3185. 3185. Parachrom, an alloy of zirconium and niobium with a blue oxide coating, is touted as being completely antimagnetic and virtually impervious to temperature changes, while also being about 10 times more resistant to shocks. It first appeared in the current line of Daytona’s 4130 calibers and has now been extended to almost the entire replica Rolex movement range, the only exceptions being some smaller movements with Syloxi hairsprings.
Another distinctive feature of the 3186 movements is that the wheels of its drive train have been moved closer together. This eliminates the tiny wobble you could see in the older GMT hands when adjusting the main hour hand, leaving the entire system completely intact compared to the Cal. 3185. The core construction of both movements is based on the legendary Cal. 3135 which is the longest-running and most widely used movement ever made by Rolex.
Another change, and one that is sometimes overlooked, is the Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116710LN with its modernized bracelet. The model was released on a three-link Oyster strap – the sportiest and least formal of Rolex’s various metal strap options. However, the Ref. 116710LN was created at a time when fake Rolex was striving to improve the overall quality of its bracelets, an area in which it had been mildly criticized in the past.
Featuring links with highly polished centers, the Oyster bracelet is now entirely solid, thus ensuring solid weight and resilience, and the new design also introduces the patented Easylink extension on the clasp. Rolex’s Easylink system allows for a 5 mm extension that is completely at your disposal and requires no tools. This means that the bracelet can be adjusted throughout the day to compensate for natural fluctuations in wrist size caused by factors such as ambient temperature and humidity.
The Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116710LN is the last example of Rolex’s legendary pilot’s watch to be released with a single color bezel. As such, the ref. 116710LN is one of the most attractive targets for collectors today, who are attracted not only by its rugged, understated aesthetics or its truly useful complications but also by its future investment potential. With its all-black Cerachrom bezel and green GMT hand, the 116710LN doesn’t look like any other GMT-Master II replica watch, and that’s exactly why it could be the next big thing.

The Rolex Submariner Date Reference 116613LB is two-tone stainless steel and 18k yellow version of Rolex’s iconic dive watch with a blue dial and matching blue Cerachrom bezel. Produced from 2009 until 2020, the Ref. 116613LB is the first two-tone stainless steel and 18K yellow version of Rolex’s iconic dive watch. 116613LB is the first two-tone Submariner with a ceramic bezel insert and the last Rolex dive watch with a case diameter of 40 mm before updating the entire Submariner collection to a 41 mm case. While blue has a long history of appearing on various models in the replica Rolex Submariner collection, it has only appeared on two-tone and solid gold references, and two-tone Submariner watches with blue dials are often nicknamed “Bluesy” in some collector circles.

Rolesor is the iconic Rolex term for the use of both stainless steel and gold components on a single watch, and the Yellow Rolesor is the variety that pairs stainless steel with 18k gold. In addition to the stainless steel and solid gold versions of the Submariner, Rolex also produces the Rolesor version, which has been a cornerstone product of the brand’s catalog since the mid-1980s. Two-tone watches have been present in the Rolex catalog since the 1930s, and many consider the two-tone aesthetic to be a symbol of the Rolex brand.
With its Maxi dial, Cerachrom bezel, solid link Oyster bracelet, and updated case proportions, the Reference 116613LB is a completely modern watch that could easily be mistaken for a current production model. However, the movement inside is the older Caliber 3135, which first appeared in the late 1980s and has been used to drive the date display on countless Rolex replica models over the years.
Like all modern Rolex Submariner fake watches, the 116613LB features a depth rating of 300 meters, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and the brand’s signature Cyclops magnifying glass above the date window at 3 o’clock. In addition, like the current production model, the Rolex Submariner ref. 116613LB features an Oyster bracelet with solid links. It allows instant adjustment of the bracelet length in 2 mm increments up to 20 mm without the use of tools.
Although the official case diameter measurement for the 116613LB is 40 mm, the 116613LB’s official case diameter is 40 mm, but its “super case” design with substantially thicker lugs and the crown guard gives the watch an overall look and feel more similar to the 41 mm case currently in production.

One of the most confusing points is around the condition. In your search, you’ll most likely come across two replica watches that look exactly the same — the same manufacturing, model, reference, and so on — but with a wide price difference. To add to the confusion, the fake rolex watch that seems likely to have had a harder life apparently had some impact on its case, or its face had weathered in the sun and was more expensive.
It all comes down to some of the collectors’ preference for originality. A watch in ‘honest’ condition, i.e. one which has never been polished by a service center to remove any scratches, is incredibly rare and therefore more valuable. While polishing can bring a watch back to its showroom shine, it does so by removing minute layers of metal and, if done enough times, leaves lugs uneven or eradicates those wonderful chamfered edges along the flanks.
A similar philosophy applies to the dial. Any vintage watch will have a dial which signs of age; the question is, what kind? One displaying a nice patina, or those known as ‘tropical’ (where a black dial has faded to an attractive even brown color) is highly sought after. However, one showing signs of water damage, such as staining on the markers, is to be avoided and they can sometimes mean that the replica rolex watches may have internal problems as well. The dial of a vintage timepiece can account for up to 85% of the total value.
The condition should also be consistent. Both dial and handset should display the same level of aging, it is a total sign that one or the other has been replaced at some point. Delicate cases, service dials, or hands-on vintage watches do not cause any transactions to fail, but they need to be identified and priced accordingly compared to those with the correct dial, original watches.

Let’s face it that the 1980s were not a great time for watchmaking — or, in terms of design. That said, Rolex has never been one to reinvent the wheel or abandon past design norms, nor has it suffered nearly as much damage over the past decade. Many ’80s Rolex watches are not yet considered antique, so they are not as memorable as watches from the’ 60s and ’70s, or as modern as watches from the late’ 90s to the present.
What does this mean for collectors? Well, in other ways, it makes a full decade’s worth of watches easier to buy than their peers — even though they are destined to reach a similar level of long-term appreciation in the years to come. With that in mind, here we have a number of replica rolex models from the New Wave and Synth-Pop era of the 1980s.
In some respects, it’s the best of both worlds for an ‘older’ Submariner. This is the model that updated the line to the quick-set Cal. 3035, and that also added a sapphire crystal to the equation for the first time.
The ref. 16800 Submariner also falls into the window of use of Tritium lume, which ages with its own special feature. This combination of modern/retro makes for a great daily wearer, arguably more so than a ref. 5513 in some respects, plus you can still scoop up a good example.
Another option here, as the Coke bezel GMT-Master II was one of the very few interesting things to surface in the watch world in the ’80s. That’s correct, and this bad boy was launched in 1983, as the first of the GMT-Master II models featuring the then-new Cal. 3085 movement.
The ref. 16760 GMT-Master II was the dawn of the independently adjustable hour hands for fake rolex, and the reference that became famous as the ‘Fat Lady’ or the ‘Sophia Loren’ on account of the slightly thicker case needed to house the new, more-advanced caliber.
Even though the big and gaudy gold things were truly a product of the ’70s, a big statement piece equally had its place during the ’80s. For this occasion, there’s no bigger statement than a solid gold Rolex Day-Date, particularly one with a Presidential bracelet with bark textured center links, matching bark textured bezel, and a Tiger’s Eye dial. Submariner is one of many two-tone replica watches, which is somewhat surprising considering how much the brand likes to tap into its tool-table roots. In many ways, the move laid the groundwork for a submariner’s status, rather than a diving outfit.
