One of the most recognizable timepieces in the world is the Rolex Pepsi GMT. It was introduced in 1954 and created for pilots during the era of intercontinental travel. The distinctive blue and red bezel was influenced by the colors of Pan American Airways, who ordered the watch from Rolex. Over the years, the Rolex Pepsi had various updates, all of which featured the eye-catching and now-iconic color combination.
BLRO is an acronym for blue/red, or blue/red. The two-tone Cerachrom bezel on GMT models, as the one on the current Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126710BLRO (also known as "Pepsi"), is referenced by this color scheme.
In 2018, Rolex unveiled the much-anticipated stainless steel modern Rolex Pepsi. This upgraded the Pepsi's movement to Caliber 3285 while returning it to its roots as a sports watch. This new generation movement has a precision of +/- 2 seconds each day and a power reserve of 70 hours (up from 50 hours).
With the exception of the fact that Rolex decided to distinguish it by mounting the ref. 126710 on a Jubilee bracelet, it is nearly identical to its white gold version. Furthermore, it's significant to notice that the Jubilee bracelet on this model is not the regular Jubilee but rather a brand-new reference developed exclusively for the 126710.
