Baselworld 2019: Rolex “Pepsi” GMT-Master II with Meteorite Dial

March 23, 2019

Last year at Baselworld, the star of the show was easily the stainless steel Rolex “Pepsi” GMT-Master II. With waitlists still several years in length at authorized retailers, and pre-owned examples trading for well-above their original purchase prices on the secondary market, it is undeniable that the Rolex “Pepsi” look is extremely desirable right now. This year for Baselworld 2019, Rolex has introduced a new white gold version of the “Pepsi” GMT-Master II; however this time it features a striking meteorite dial.

The Rolex “Pepsi” GMT-Master II ref. 126719 BLRO with Meteorite Dial

Although the reference 126719BLRO is technically a new watch, a white gold GMT-Master II with a red and blue “Pepsi” bezel already existed in the Rolex catalog. Additionally, it should also be noted that the use of meteorite dials is not a new novelty for Rolex, and examples can be found on various watches throughout their past, particularly within the Daytona, Day-Date, and Datejust collections. However this new ultra-premium dial variation marks the first time that a meteorite dial has been fitted to a Rolex GMT.

We have discussed Rolex’s meteorite dials before; however in case anyone is wondering, yes, they do actually feature slices of meteorite on their surfaces. The meteorite itself primarily consists of iron and nickel, and the unique pattern on its surface is the result of how the metals cooled when the meteorite fell to earth all those years ago. As its appearance is the product of a natural occurrence, the patten will vary from one meteorite dial to the next, and no two watches will look exactly the same.

The meteorite dial version of the white gold “Pepsi” GMT-Master II will be offered along side one with a blue dial.

With the latest updates to the GMT-Master collection, Rolex will no longer be manufacturing stainless steel GMT-Master II watches with Oyster bracelets. This means that if you want a white-metal Rolex GMT and also want an Oyster bracelet, you will have to get one in solid white gold – like the reference 126719 BLRO “Pepsi” GMT-Master II with meteorite dial, which is set to have an official price of $38,400.
