Discreet but successful facelift
Rolex 126710BLNR is not a revolution, but a successful evolution of its predecessor Ref. 116710BLNR, the Rolex Batman. With the new reference, all GMT-Master stainless steel models feature the elegant, delicate Jubilée bracelet, while all watches in the Submariner collection feature the sportier Oyster bracelets. Oyster straps in the GMT-Master range are reserved for the precious metal versions. The use of the new calibre 3285 in the Ref. 126710BLNR is also more evolution than revolution and a symbol of the horological expertise of the Geneva-based Rolex Manufacture.
Both the use of horological innovations (blue Parachrom hairspring, Chronergy escapement) and the high power reserve of around 70 hours is now "state of the art" for renowned luxury manufacturers and shows that even traditional manufacturers continue to strive for horological achievements.
