The Rolex GMT Master II – The Green Pointer vs the Batman
The Rolex GMT Master
II Ceramic has been one of the most frequently seen watches on the street in
Hong Kong. The 116710 Green Pointer is also one the Rolex I bought. I
actually chose it over the Submariner 116610 because the watch was so much more
attractive due to the oversized numbers on the ceramic bezel. The 116710 Green
Pointer is a dazzling watch. A friend of mine bought two for himself and his
wife last year. He has a black Daytona 116520 for himself and a white 116520
for his wife. But why did he buy two GMT Green Pointer but now one Green Pointer
plus a Batman?
He said the Green
Pointer looks more classic….
Is it true? HK Snob
The two GMT Master
II have different aesthetics. Or, do they? The Batman differs from the Green Pointer
by having a dual color ceramic bezel, which is the only bi-color ceramic bezel
on Rolex stainless steel models. The blue-black bezel symbolizes night and day.
The GMT hand is blue instead of green and the letters GMT Master II are in
On the wrist, they
really do not look very different. The same case applies to the Deep Sea black
and the Deep Sea D-blue. Under certain lighting, you can even hardly notice
that the Batman has a blue-black bezel.
How about the Green
Pointer? It has a green GMT hand and green GMT Master II letters. Let’s not
forget that the color that represents Rolex is green. However, this watch has
been in production for 10 years and there are a lot of people wearing it. But
of course, the price is lower than the Batman. It will feel a bit dull if you
have had the watch for a bit over 2-3 years since the color scheme is not
The Batman, on the
other hand, offers you something more fun to see every day. The blue color of
the ceramic bezel and the GMT hand and the white color of the letters GMT
Master II also recall a blue sky with clouds. The Green Pointer and the Batman
are equally flashy. If you have not had a GMT watch, get a Batman. But if you
have the Green Pointer, keep it and wear it in good health.
