Noob pepsi gmt master 2 ceramic

Recommended Posts

Mr_B

So it's arrived! ...but at $668 plus shipping! I'm definitely going to be thinking hard about buying one at that price, it's getting ridiculous now.

You beat me to it for this one.

My first Rep ws a BK with Swiss movement which cost me around $400 back around 2012, since then my wages haven't gone up at all, my houses value has gone up maybe a few percent and my grocery bill hasn't changed more than a few dollars but now we are paying $500 - $700 for a NON tourby, asian modified ETA clone movement Rollie Rep.

I think my Rep buying days are over.

Having said this my Tudor GMT has pretty much the same movement and was only around $300 so this one really doesn't look like it's good value. Just because it's got that Rollie on the dial I guess.

Yeah it's snowballed over the last year or so for Rolex reps with the whole 904L gimmic. It's all down to what we as buyers are willing to pay. AP and Patek have always been expensive especially for a good one.

With the new Pepsi It's a shame, at $400 -$500 I might have just bitten the bullet. If they bring a cheaper ICHS il be much happier. Or maybe il just get the cheaper more reliable Tudor GMT :)

Yep that Rollie has been on my wish list for years and I've held off because there's never been a really decent Rep but I'm never going to pay that much for one no mater how good it is.

I love my Tudor and enjoy it more due to it's reasonable price.

Nope, not gonna happen for me  There are a thousand reps under $300, and most are quite good.  I'm glad they made this for the people who want it and are willing to pay for it.  It will be fun seeing the pictures.

Will be interesting to see if they have sorted out the CHS movement otherwise this could be a pricy time bomb, the bezel looks good though. Looking forward to seeing some pics once people have them in hand

For that much money you’d think they’d get the bezel colours a bit closer to gen. I’d take the Tudor BB GMT at half the price over this any day.

Prices are just getting silly now, and for what? The premium for the clone movement in the Daytonas I can kind of understand, but I’m not about to pay for something I use once to check it works and then has fuck all value apart from if I was to develop adenoids and explain it’s replicated functionality to people.

All the best reps I’ve owned were/are sub-$350. In the words of Duncan Bannatyne...

The movement is the same old heavily modified 2836, I'd not trust it... And surely not for that stupid price.

GMFs got one very similar to this for less than $500, but the more I think about getting a GMT2, the less I want it. 

ill stick to my 1675 thank you

Not an expert but looking though Andrews website , the colour of the bezel is absolutely off.....

Won't be paying this stupid price for a rep. Not worth the gamble, for a potentially flaky movement. I've a Gen GMT on order (non-Rolex), so that will more than scratch the GMT itch when it arrives in a couple of months.

LOL. Looks brown on his website! Hope the TD'S didn't request too much stock of these.

Here’s my mate’s gen for reference:

As always it’s difficult to catch the true nature of these ceramic bezels in photos. That’s about as dark as it looks in reasonable light. In reality the colours are quite a bit lighter in person.

If you want me to pay 8%-10% of the asking price, we might have something to talk about, however 10% off 'ridiculously overpriced' still equals 'ridiculously overpriced'.

Somehow , there is a lot of Rolex lovers that will order them for sure . 

No matter how it costs or how off the bezel looks , there will be always someone who will wear it just to show off a new GMT master on his wrist .
