Thread: Rolex black/blue GMT on jubilee

  1. #1

    Rolex black/blue GMT on jubilee

    I was very pleasantly surprised to receive the call from my AD about picking up a new gmt “batgirl”.
    Having previously always said that I prefer the oyster bracelet, I must admit the jubilee wears extremely smartly. The watch feels very elegant with the jubilee. More shirt and trousers as opposed to jeans and t shirt with the oyster if that makes sense.
    New movement coupled with the bracelet gives the watch a whole new experience for me!

    Congratulations. Beautiful watch that. What a difference the bracelet makes. On the Oyster bracelet it is a watch that leaves me cold but I love it on the Jubilee.

    Agree. I wasn’t 100% sold on the jubilee until I tried it on, then I had to have one.
    Brilliant piece.

    My only issue is I have to sell a watch to fund it as I put the purchase on a credit card..

    Looks like this will be chopped in to pay for the GMT.. right decision do we think?

    I think so. The Daytona to me in that combo looks so old school/80s/tired. Vs the modernity and more substantial feel of the GMT.

    Lovely pickup there. I also initially had reservations about the jubilee and had planned to put a sub bracelet on for the glidelock, but didn't fit properly so just left it as it was.. No regrets now as the jubilee is so comfortable and because of the multiple link design, scratches are not even obvious at all.

    Enjoy the watch sir!

    Can't disagree with that.

    Totally agree. That combo used to hang around in windows for months

    The GMT in that combination is a stunning looking watch and with the jubilee will gain less scratches. I think too if I had the daytona, i would not mind seeing it go for that, plus you will have a good chunk of cash back.

    I much prefer the jubilee on the GMT2, and the BLNR with the jubilee is to me the top option.
    I like the two tone thing more as I hurtle towards retirement so might chop something else in.

    beautiful watch and for me the jubilee is the way to go. I had a few attempts of getting on a list for one of these over the last few years with no luck. In fact it seems to be getting harder so congratulations for getting on a waiting list in the first place.

    Great watch, congrats :-)

    Jubilee on BLNR and Pepsi are both great!

    out of the 2, i’d sell the daytona as your planning.

    enjoy the batman, it’s a beauty!

    I think that’s bloody lovely personally , much classier than the ubiquitous GMT but YMMV.

    Congrats, it sure is a beautiful piece indeed, myself personally prefer the Batman on the oyster and the Pepsi on the jubilee bracelet which I feel suits each watch head perfectly but each to their own as the saying goes.

    does any one know if you can swap straps on the new GMT’s?
    I’ve just got a root beer and wonder if I can buy and then fit a jubilee. I’m pretty sure it won’t fit on my 2014 gmt as I believe the sizes are different.
