What Is Special About the Red And Blue GMT Master II?

New 2014 Rolex GMT Master II with Pepsi Bezel


The truly unique thing that sets this watch apart from all others is the incredible red and blue bezel.  This ceramic, trademarked as Cerachrom, is the first material to be made in two colors.  Rolex
was able to perfect this material and create a beautiful two-tone
ceramic bezel that was the first of its kind.  The first Cerachrom
bezel was produced in blue and black, but the blue and red process is
also incredibly intricate.

The red color is particularly difficult to make because no stable pigment exists to make the ceramic component.  However, through some secret process, Rolex was able to cement this pigment in the
Cerachrom bezel, resulting in the iconic blue and red appearance. 
According to information from Rolex, the entire bezel is made in red
then half is changed to a blue color by impregnating the night time
section with a solution of chemical compounds then heating it to 1,600
degrees Celsius.  This gives the ceramic its resistant properties
and permanently seals the colors.

The Pepsi bezel also features engraved numerals with a fine platinum coating that enhances readability.  The white gold case is one of Rolex’s finest, and the case still measures 40 mm with a white gold
Oyster bracelet featuring polished center links.  The Rolex
Caliber 3186 powers this incredible watch.

Rolex GMT is one of the most well-known and well-loved of the Rolex lineup, so this watch’s enthusiastic reception at the Basel show is no surprise.  While the red and blue bezel may not be everyone’s
choice, its incredible colors, combined with the beautiful black dial,
white numerals and hands and oversize winding crown with crown
protectors is bound to appeal to a great number of people.  This
Rolex is certain to turn heads no matter whether you wear it as a
formal watch or a fairly casual piece.
