    Pepsi vs Rootbeer GMT ll?

    Fellow watch fanatics - I am so on the fence as to which 2018 Rollie MASTER GMT ll Pepsi on SS Jubilee or Rootbeer on two-tone Ever Rose on Oyster will be next to add to my collection. I love them both equally and will wear on the job (office professional) as well as on weekends.

    I’m not concerned about resale value one vs another. Just want to get your take here on which one SINGS to you most and WHY? Which looks more “impressive” and screams Rolex and subsequently noticed more by the average “Joe” ? :)))



    Thanks in advance for weighing it!

    Cheers!!!

    Frank -

    I love my Pepsi, and have decided that the Rootbeer is next. I had honesty never seen one in the flesh until recently. I was instantly sold. Had I seen the Rootbeer in the flesh first is would have been down to which one I could grab from an ad first.

    Rootbeer feels more professional, and I prefer the oyster bracelet. I am biased, however, as I thing the Pepsi looks toy-like, with much of the appeal due to current craze, and I much prefer the Batman, anyway.

    Unless you have a particular affinity for two-tone, I’d go Pepsi.

    I love both but I would go with the Pepsi. That’s likely going to be the next piece I try to get my hands on. If you choose the Root Beer, I know of an AD in Pennsylvania (if you’re in the US) that had one a few weeks ago. Might still be available

    The Pepsi for it’s timeless look and functionality. It seems in many ways the GMTs have overtaken Subs as more popular, but it was never the case until recently. I’ve always felt the GMT was the best watch Rolex makes. I’m patiently waiting for the Meteorite GMT which I hope will arrive later this year. Good luck with whatever you choose.

    I'd take the Rootbeer. Tried one on a couple months ago and was blown away by how well the rose gold works on this piece. Really muted and not overly flashy. Plus, you won't pay too much over MSRP right now whereas it's going to be a long time before the Pepsi prices come down...

    Pepsi vs Rootbeer GMT ll?

    You cannot go wrong with either, however I would choose the Pepsi because of 3 reasons..

    1) Timeless bezel combination
    2) All steel and hence less flashy.
    3) Jubilee bracelets are less telling of flaws.

    However, we collectors have our own pet peeves. I am tad biased towards the Pepsi. But I have seen both on my wrist and would choose Pepsi every time.

    Same watch. Different bracelets.

    If you're trying to get Joes to notice your watch that screams "rollie" get a rainbow daytona.
