I love the looks of the Rolex Gmt Master II with the black and red bezel. The classic design of this GMT Master II is beautifully stilled up by the modern black and red bezel. It is such a terrific aesthetic improvement for this remarkable Rolex design. The first time I saw this model was at a local jewelry shop when I went in to resize the band of my Seiko watch. I loved its design from the first moment I saw it and I couldn’t resist the impulse of trying it on. It looked perfect on my hand, a lot more classy and beautiful than my cheap Seiko.
Unfortunately, a Seiko was all I could afford. A Rolex watch was out of my league. Recently, a friend of mine showed me a replica he bought online and I was impressed with how authentic it looked. This convinced me to buy an imitation Rolex GMT Master II from the same replica shop. And it was the best thing I ever did! The replica looks amazing and works excellent. I am without a doubt very happy with it. On the dial there are the classic GMT Master II luminescent markers: a triangle at 12 o’clock, rectangles at 6 and 9 o’clock and small dots for the other hours. At 3 o’clock there is a 2.5X magnifying lens over the date, the same magnification degree as the original watch. Still, my favorite part of this watch remains the perfect combination between the red and black of the unidirectional rotating bezel. It completes the unique design of this astonishing watch.
Other replicas are made of a cheap metal that discolors in time or even rusts. This knockoff is made from actual stainless steel. In fact, the watch is manufactured from full solid stainless steel. It will never discolor or rust. As far as I can tell, this particular steel is very resistant to daily wear. I have worn it daily for over four months and it does not show any scratch signs or other visible wear and tear marks. I am pretty sure that this is a flawlessly constructed replica and that it would be pretty difficult, including for a connoisseur, to tell that it’s a fake.
Based on the experience I had with my replica of the Rolex GMT Master II I am very convinced that there are good quality imitation watches out there and if you take the time to research the market you will end up buying a very well made fake at an incredibly reasonable price.
