Anyway I'm not waiting months to get one ... just switch out the Oyster for a Jubilee (albeit not quite correct 555 end pieces) on my 16750, and I'm good to go.

Harder to find ? Possibly.  Cheaper ? Marginally. More character ? Indeed ... IMHO

Great job KY! I was thinking along the same lines too. I have a day date with a broken mainspring and I was tempted to cannibalise it for its jubilee bracelet. If only I can remember where I put it...

Thanks  :)

Do you mean Datejust ? Coz the Jubilee doesn't really fit Day-Dates well due to its slightly different lug design.

It's a day date definitely and you're right, not only will the bracelet not fit, it came with a presidential bracelet. OK Gotta scrap the plan then.

By the way, do you know where I can pick up a jubilee which is era specific to my 16710?

For steel, the old Jubilee bracelet is generically 62510H but the end pieces differ between Datejust (555) and different variants of GMTs ... some 1675 uses 50, 16750 is 550, your 16710 should be 502 which is extremely expensive due to rarity.

Will PM you to chat on the side so not to disrupt this thread.  Hope my info is useful to those into vintages.

 Reviving this old thread since we're starting to see the the new Pepsi arriving on our shores .. albeit grey imports.

If anyone has updates, rumors, gossip etc about this, kindly post it here.

Had a brief chit chat with a dealer this evening - he's not a Rolex AD but has one of the longest history in dealing with used & new grey Rolex for several decades. The premium price of the new Pepsi is apparently being offered at ...... RM80k ...  :Startled:

Craziest premium I've ever heard ... short of the Nautilus.

I just saw this yesterday at a local dealer. Highlight is the 70 hours power reserve. Jubilee strap. Nice. Very nice. Buy at list? Spend xxx,xxx amount before you can get it. Grey market is going crazy over this watch... I was picking up something else and since they just received it they showed me the real thing (looking at online pictures, reading about it and actually touching is very different)...
My daily wrist - Zenith, Omega and Seiko.
My To Do list - Zenith, JLC, Omega and GS

Yay but so hard to source. No AD has stock of this.

Rolex just keeps playing the cartel thingy because they can and we just can't get enough can we?

Just curious... did the Batman sell for such a crazy premium when it first appeared?

Will the Pepsi settle closer to retail a few years from now?

So, Rolex has now joined the ranks of PP and AP in terms of pricing for a SS watch.

I think the RRP of the watches are pretty much acceptable, even for PP.

But the SPECULATED price, madness! Period

The thing is, the speculation is by Rolex themselves. Trickling supplies to artificially boost demand.

Well unfortunately after the initial, shock, horror, anger and disgust dies down,  we'll just go ahead and pay Rolex whatever ransom they ask because we really want this watch don't we? I know I do.  :o

Not Rolex

A bit more will get you a used white gold Pepsi ... much nicer IMHO

The current premium for 126710 BLRO is just insane. I am hoping that the price will be cool down in 1 or 2 years time.

The white gold is definitely great value now but the new one is a totally new watch with that new engine and super duper boost in power reserve, those slimmed down lugs and that jubilee, oh that jubilee!

I must resist, must resist.....

Too strong the force is with this one. A terrible disturbance I sense. Slowly but surely its pulling you in KY-Ren. Resistance is futile. In peril hangs our life's savings...
