Our opinion: The GMT has become more legendary than the Submariner recently with a very long wait for the return of the Pepsi bezel. This one on its release creates a huge speculative effect on all GMTs and collectors appreciate them even more than in the past. This is a neo-vintage version with 5 digits as we say in its reference 16700 GMT master I version with its beautiful swiss only dial. Model reissued by Rolex and which launched the new speculation of the GMT master. A truly transitional model with its very first version in luminova dial marked swiss only and produced only at the end of production with so much character, a perfect piece to start a collection. The real investment value from Rolex. In addition, the new ones are sold even more expensive than these rare models and limited in production. So hurry up before they explode in price and exceed the new ones!
