The Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126710 is the current GMT watch introduced in 2018.

Overview

Rolex refreshed the GMT-Master II range beginning in 2018 with the return of the "Pepsi" red and blue bezel in Oystersteel. It had only been available in white gold since it returned to the lineup in 2014, with steel models limited to the "Batman" blue and black bezel. Rolex also introduced a new "Root Beer" brown and black bezel in Rolesor and Everose that year. In 2019 the entire Ref. 116710 lineup was retired, with the Oystersteel "Batman" reintroduced along with the white gold "Pepsi".

The Oystersteel models now come with a Jubilee bracelet, and feature redesigned lugs that no longer match the traditional Oyster bracelet still found on gold models. All GMT-Master II models of this generation feature the new, more efficient Cal. 3285 with 70 hour power reserve.

The GMT-Master II, Ref. 126710 was named "Men's Trendsetter" as part of the Uhr des Jahres awards in 2019.
