Have you noticed? For me, the best from Rolex in 2021 are the following two "novelties" ๐Ÿ‘

I own the 116710blnr and 126710blro jubilee and appreciate how they complement each other in my collection.

That being said, I will ask about getting the oyster bracelet anyway. Would be nice to be able to switch them periodically.

Really? I haven't checked but will be speaking to Rolex directly but that is interesting, thanks.

Looking at another forum I see for the BLRO Jubilee is preferred to Oyster 53% to 47% with 500 votes cast, for what it's worth.

Prefer the Oyster for everything but

My exact feelings!

The Pepsi never worked for me on jubilee, so itโ€™s a great option on oyster, same for Batman.

If I remember correctly...

... Rolex offered the new steel Pepsi a few years ago with only the Jubilee option because it did not want to create a steel model that looked exactly like the preexisting, much more expensive WG Pepsi model, which then had a black rather than blue dial. ... 

whats the point

if they will never be available to commoners like me?!

I agree. Ireally like that they brought back the Oyster bracelet for the GMT line.

I saw a leak of the BLNR coming back on Oyster but its a great surprise to see the BLRO also being included.

The BLNR has been available in Oyster ...

... for at least a couple of years, along the Jubilee alternative. The two versions seem to be about equally popular, based on what I see on Chrono24. In contrast, the BLRO was Jubilee-only until now presumably because Rolex did not want to alienate those... 

The 116710blnr was only available on oyster, then the new 126710blnr was only available on jubilee. At no point until today has the blnr been available on either simultaneously.

But, as an owner of both 116710 and 126710 I can tell you that itโ€™s impossible to tell the two apart. Itโ€™s not like a new case shape that the submariner underwent. So, in a sense, it is as though the blnr has had both already ๐Ÿ™‚

You are correct sir...

The oyster came first for the Batman; and then the jubilee. I had forgotten that the 116710BLNR and 126710BLNR are distinct and sequential references. The case and movement appear to be identical.

Oyster with polished Center Links is not GMT-appropriate

 By: Mostel : April 8th, 2021-16:10
Neither is a Jubilee BTW... IMHO... and in fact, I had a chance to get a GMT with Juby and chose a Cameron that day... why? Jubilee is a dress bracelet as is (although less so) a pcl Oyster... and pcls are simply too prone to scratch to be even remotely s...

anybody to use their watch as they wish. And I suspect there are still some people who use theirs in a way that'd please you. In other words, lamenting the disappearance of Rolex as a tool watch... I think there are causes much more pressing. Cheers Marc

Wait Marc, what?

What causes could possibly be more pressing??!!

Aaah, the Cameron!!!
