This is one of my favorite watches. It always brings back nice memories of my travels both far and close from home

I was actually on the fence about buying the gmt for quite awhile pondering how useful the gmt function would be. after reading about the history of the watch I weakened and got it...no regrets ever since. thanks for watching

No worries :-)

It's the pepsi dial that does it for me every time ;D and the additional hand / gmt function......an interesting watch indeed.

Enjoy

That's nice, but... 1675 GMT > GMT II.

Default no arguements there but...

always worried that nobody (including RSC) will have spare parts for these vintage models should they need servicing...

I was going to get a the BLNR (batman). Its on my short list of 2 watches. I would love to have the batman for the traveling that I do. A friend of mine just recently purchase the batman and I'm thinking of getting something else not that he has it.

Great piece. All the GMT models have been classics. I do love the Coke too.

Not sure about the OP, but I'm on the list for the new 126710 BLRO (Pepsi) with my AD. They said I'm 4th on the list, so I might see it sometime in summer of 2035...

Love the model but funds exclude from getting it. Instead I got this homage to pretend.
Recently found a used rootbeer gmt 2005 at a nearby store here in Japan...drooling..

I've never seen one in person, and I know they are great watches, but...

I think the hands are under-sized. Probably because of the large hands on Seiko divers. The hands on the Rolex almost seem to get lost in the other dial features. If the hands were just a bit bigger, it'd be awesome.

I really like the GMT feature. I wish more Seiko divers had that.

Steinhart makes a pretty good homage.
