    126710 BLNR

    I was taken by surprise today. Pleasant surprise. Not as nice as the Pepsi, but here it is...

    well done John

    I think I prefer it to the Pepsi - slightly more understated

    Going slightly off topic but shouldn't the light blue shade of the bezel be better on top if it was designed that way?

    Looks great with the Jubilee bracelet - well done John.

    Will it get some wrist time though...

    I REALLY want to like it because I so wanted one on the oyster but it just jars design wise for me on the jubilee. I hope my opinion changes because the watch and colour combo is soooo nice. Congrats.

    Surely it is better representing the daylight hours 0600-1800 and the black representing the night? 🤔

    Very nice, great pick up. I see there is one on ebay for £19.5k

    Hi Ghost,

    You are correct.
    I didn't think of that before.

    I love my BLNR, I was going to order a jubilee for mine before this was released at Basel and like the fact I can now see more photos of what the jubilee is like on the GMT.

    Personally I prefer the jubilee on the Pepsi. This must be part of the first batch of watches to the U.K., enjoy in good health :)

    I agree, the jubilee definitely looks better on the Pepsi. That said, I am a little surprised how well the jubilee suits the BLNR. And there is no doubt about it, the jubilee is a much more comfortable bracelet to wear.

    Yep, another rare dissenting voice here. Give me that on an oyster any day. Far too busy on the jubilee.

    Iím a fan of the Pepsi and a recent convert to the appeal of the Jubilee bracelet. I think it looks great on both the BLNR and the Pepsi. The thing that irks me is the end link to lug interface. I think the Oyster meets the lugs more cleanly than these new Jubilee bracelets. I really need to see one in the flesh.

    In the mean time, I will be visiting St James Square and getting a Pepsi bezel fitted to my black bezel 16700.

    Very nice, John! I am also a fan of the jubilee on the GMT, but do wish the clasp on the new models was somehow more elegant- while I appreciate the technology and increased security, jubilees look even better with hidden clasps imho

    And another, it just looks so wrong to me - but that's a relief, as it's one less watch I can't afford, and well done to anyone who's landed one.

    Excellent comparison shot, very helpful. Yes, no doubt it does suit the BLRO significantly better.

    A far cry from the tool watches they once were

    Fiddlesticks and bunkum.

    The GMT was designed for very flash pilots who spent their time sitting in a cockpit, no different from someone sitting at a desk.

    Pilots were, and are still, well known for having a good sense of dress and caring about their looks. That is why they probably pulled more women in a month that what you have ever pulled in your lifetime. Also they had considerably more charm than you.

    A Sub and an Explorer are true tool watches, a GMT is an entirely different market.

    Your comment was not only inaccurate but a bit snide as well. Most unpleasant.

    Shouldn't come as a surprise as it is true for 90% of his comments.

    Congratulations John. From memory, Pepsi deliveries started from June 2018 so the new BLNRs have arrived a month earlier than that. I am still waiting for my Pepsi ... taken much longer than I was made to believe initially. I just havenít spent a lot with the AD so fair enough.

    I've seen both watches in a flesh and on someone wrist.
    I have to say BLRO looks a better looking watch of the two which is surprising as I've always prefer BLNR on the internet pictures.

    A total over reaction which seems to be norm on here. The new GMT on Jubilee are beautiful looking dress watches but they differ very much from the GMT 16710. This is fact not snide!!

    For me the BLNR looks better on an Oyster bracelet and the BLRO actually looks great on a Jubilee.

    Hence I will be keeping my BLNR and eagerly await my (soon to arrive) BLRO.

    You remind me of a dung coated rat scurrying through the sewers of internet fora. You spread a little bit of poo here and a little bit somewhere else.

    You know, I know and the entire world knows that the 16710 on a Jubilee differs very little from the 126710 in practical terms. Why you make so many negative comments is entirely beyond me.

    I have a 16710 on a Jubilee and believe me it is not a tool watch as say is a Sub.

    Your language is wholly inappropriate and aggressive! Again yet another over reaction from the hyper sensitive individuals like yourself. I was not trying to be negative at all but simply expressing my opinion. I also reiterate that the BLNR Jubilee is a very handsome watch! After all it is forum where people express differing views.

    I really like it on the jubilee, although I canít decide whether I prefer new or old. Certainly think the Pepsi is beautiful. Will have to make up my mind when I get the call.

    I own the old one on an oyster but I prefer it on a jubilee. Maybe because itís like getting a new watch with it being on a jubilee?

    OP: are those jubilee centre links polished or brushed? It certainly doesn't look as shiny as 11erv's photo, but I appreciate its probably just a trick of the camera
    Stunning watch either way!

    Edit: D'oh! Just realised that 11erv started the thread too, so the photos are of the same watch... sorry!

    I prefer this jubilee bracelet to the previous BLNR solid links. Great watch.
