The launch of the Rolex GMT Master-II revolutionized the watch industry by creating a unique blend of sophistication and functionality. Introduced initially to bring convenience to the lives of pilots, this stroke of genius gained the attention of not just aviation enthusiasts. While the original masterpiece dates back to the 1950s, the Rolex Batman 116710BLNR was released in 2013 and caught the eye of watch enthusiasts immediately.
The Batman-themed Rolex earned its name when people started associating the one-of-a-kind multi-tone blue and black bezel with the superhero’s attire. While the multi-colored bezel was not something unknown to GMT Master-II aficionados, what set this watch apart was the never-before-seen two-tone Cerachrom bezel. Since then, this rare and now discontinued classic has been something every luxury lover wishes to own.
The Rolex Batman specifications offered the same high-end functionality as all the other Rolex GMT Master-II timepieces. The 40 mm majestic 904L Stainless steel watch case known as Oystersteel makes the Rolex GMT Batman super-resistant and is considered the secret to its longevity. The sophisticated Oysterlock safety clasp gives the option of easy and comfortable adjustment to the wearer. Not only that, but the advanced safety mechanism keeps the watch securely fastened around your wrist. Similar to the rest of the models, the bezel is rotatable, which makes keeping track of multiple timezones seem like an easy job. One notable variation in this model was reflected in the choice of color for the 24-hour hand. To match the overall theme of the masterpiece, as expected, this detail is also represented in blue. All in all, the spectacular Batman edition is a luxurious addition that every sybarite seeks.
Why Rolex Batman Price is not a collector’s main concern
Seekers of luxury are on a constant quest to find the much-desired, collectible Rolex Batman. The rarity of the luxury Batman timepiece has made the buyer immune to worries surrounding ` its price. This is because the one purchasing this piece fully understands the lucrativeness associated with owning such a precious asset. It is well-known that the pre-owned, pre-loved market for such valuables brings about significant returns in the form of financial gains.
Rolex Batman vs Rolex Batgirl
When comparing both these iconic masterpieces, there are more similarities than differences that one can find. The 24-hour rotatable bezel remains the same as in all the GMT Master-II variations. The two-toned Cerachrom bezel which was the most distinguishing attribute of this edition remained the same.
One of the most obvious differences that instantly gained the attention of Rolex lovers was the style of the bracelet. Another feature that set Batgirl apart was the type of movement incorporated. While the Rolex Batman carried Calibre 3186, the new, updated Batgirl edition had Calibre 3285. Due to this, the 126710BLNR had a longer power reserve of 70 hours as compared to the 116710BLNR’s 48-hour reserve. This difference in movement also allowed the oscillator to be more shock-resistant as compared to the older version.
While Batgirl offers buyers minor upgrades, the choice between Rolex Batman and Rolex Batgirl is made purely based on style preferences.
