Hello friends!

We are enjoying a wonderful Spring Saturday morning here and It inspired me to take some additional shots of my new catch I shared yesterday.

I’m very excited with this watch which arrived last week after a so long wait and I’m enjoying it so much!

Thanks all in advance for viewing these shots!
Enjoy a nice and relaxed weekend!!

Nice Rolex. Is that the new Coke ??😜

Hello Lanskysudanese! Thank you so much for your greetings. Ha ha ha! Pepsi! this is a brand new 2021 made watch with caliber 3285 inside. It is presently offered with Jubilee or Oyster bracelets.

 By: Subexplorer : October 9th, 2021-16:45
Previously only offered with the Jubilee only. I must confess that as a drink I prefer Coke, but for a GMT a Pepsi. (though I also own a previous GMT reference 16710 Coke in my collection). Cheers! Abel

Thanks for tolerating my poor attempt at humor.

Many people have owned this timepiece, but none have taken as amazing photos as you. Wear it in good health.

I missed the “incoming” post, congrats Abel.

I have a bit of a soft spot for this one.

Thank you so much dear Jay! I posted about its arrival a couple of days ago...

Here is the link: It was a long wait indeed but well worth it. I wished to own this watch so much! Glad you like it my friend. It´s an awesome watch indeed with all the tradition of this classic model from Rolex. Cheers! Abel

Superb shots! It doesnt get any better!

congrats! my fav modern rolex! how long was the wait...I've been trying to get one (at retail) foreverrrr

Thank you hl99!! Yes it was a long wait indeed of almost three years. The Rolex marketing policy of the last years with their sport/tool watches made things very hard for true collectors or fans of ...

... the brand willing to buy one of their products for their own use and satisfaction. I´ve been a fan, user and collector of the brand for more than fifty years and was very upset I couldn´t find this watch for my collection while the market prices soar ... 

Abel, your delight in this piece is very satisfying to witness.

I love when a particular watch can lighten your mood and add an element of fun or novelty to your day.

Great shots. Showing the colors very well.

I stopped by my AD on Thursday to say hello with zero expectations of seeing any watches. He is actually a really nice (and fair) guy and we have become friends over the past few years. There are not any AD'S close to where I live so it is a pretty good d...  


 By: matto1 : October 9th, 2021-22:31
Had to actually go get my wallet out of the car as I had no idea he would be offering me the piece. I have had the all black and Root-beer in the past, but prefer the Pepsi for the bezel colors.

Well done Matto!! The Pepsi is a classic!!

 By: Subexplorer : October 9th, 2021-23:23
My favorite too. Keep enjoying and loving it so much! Cheers!

What a fantastic collage! I see the honeymoon it’s just starting, looks fantastic on you!

 By: ZSHSZ : October 9th, 2021-19:18
Mine is gone but not forgotten! I’m more of a Oyster bracelet guy, therefore I acquired the Meteorite dial model, maybe one day it will come back to me... Have a great weekend, and love the photos! ...  

The Meteorite is a killer.

Congratulations! I know you will enjoy it. I was lucky that my AD is an old friend and I was in the right place at the right time not long after it was released. I’m so happy for you! Kent ...  

Thank you so much Kent for your kind comments and sharing your beauty.

 By: Subexplorer : October 10th, 2021-14:21
Agree with you that it is an extraordinary travel watch. Its always nice to have good friends at an AD. Glad to know you didn’t need to wait so long as me. Keep enjoying and loving yours so much! Cheers! Abel

Looking good! This would be one GMTM thats not at least 30 YO which I would like to add!😄 Enjoy!

Ha ha ha! Thank you so much dear S F!!

 By: Subexplorer : October 10th, 2021-14:28
Though the modern GMT’s lack the charm of vintage this is a watch I desired so much. It completes the evolution of this iconic model from 6542 till today. And of course it’s a magnificent product from Rolex. I feel you would enjoy it so much too! Cheers! ... 

Thank you dear Justin for your so kind comments!

… message! Appreciate so much. Have a wonderful week ahead!! Cheers! Abel

Hi Abel, I read that you registered your interest in the Pepsi right after the 2018 release.

 By: Sfwatchlover : October 11th, 2021-04:41
I was monitoring the new releases at that time as well and there was a Tudor GMT being released at the same time. Thinking that the Rolex Pepsi was too difficult to get, I talked to Tudor AD immediately about getting the BB GMT. After a wait of 11 months,... 

Interesting to read your experience dear Sfwatchlover. You know I have a big respect and fondness for Tudor and I feel the Black Bay line was a mayor move of this brand...

... which starting with a single model (the wonderful red bezel diver watch) led to a long list of awesome models. Among them the GMT variant. I also got an example of the Tudor GMT in July 2018, same year of introduction of the Pepsi Rolex GMT. I find it... 

Dear Abel, thank you so much for sharing your experience and insights! I really appreciate that!

 By: Sfwatchlover : October 12th, 2021-06:20
I agree with you that Tudor offers excellent watches at very good prices. In 2018 the BB GMT with bracelet was listed at $3950 I remember, which was an incredible value for an in-house movement. I noticed that many Tudor models would be hard to get right ...

Thanks Abel for your insights and kind words.

 By: Sfwatchlover : October 13th, 2021-17:03
Your comments on building good relationships with ADs are spot on. I started to do better recently. When I began watch collecting, I bought quite a few watches when I traveled on business trips. Although I got better prices from these ADs, it was not good... 

My big pleasure to share my thought my friend. In high end and coveted brands it pays to develop a good relation with an AD. Sometimes it´s the only way of getting the model you are hunting.

 By: Subexplorer : October 16th, 2021-02:16
I feel your present relation and purchases will bring good results. You´ll be getting your DJ green palm soon and you´ll get your GMT as well. Agree that patience is needed in Life as in Collecting and our hobby helps to build that patience and perseveran... 

Totally agree with you and thanks for additional insights.

LOL to hear you say sometimes worrying about all ADs and dealers calling in the same month I feel too that I started to build a good relationship with this Rolex boutique. I will share my happy story in the WristScan this weekend. Thanks again and have a ... 

Thanks again, take care, Abel :)
