Until recently, there was a waiting list for the Submariner LV. These Submariners are easy to get now, the prices on the grey market have gone down to list price and the watches are sitting behind the windows of the authorized dealer again. However, the authorized dealers have set-up new waiting lists for the new stainless steel GMT-Master II and the Millgaus. At the grey market dealers, the new GMT-Master II watches fetch around 6K (Euro) and the list price will be around 5300 Euro. Some premium has to be paid to be one of the first owners of this watch. However, seeing pictures of a German meet&greet of Rolex collectors (www.r-l-x.de) it is obvious that people are able to get one fairly easy 🙂

I really like the looks of the new GMT-Master II, although the bracelet seems to be a bit too small (/narrow) for the massive lugs on this watch.

p.s. I left the eternal waiting list for the ref.16520 Rolex Daytona out of this post. That?Ǭ†waiting list?Ǭ†is just ridiculous for years already.


  • The bezel, dial and hands of the new GMT-II look amazing and i like the new alterations a lot. The bracelet however is something i’d expect on a more flashy watch. It takes the whole heritage of toolwatch away from the GMT-II and personally i think that’s a shame. I’d prefer this GMT Master II with the old bracelet.
