I voted for black and white.

That said, I do like my 233 without any GMT bezel. The second timezone hand is 12 hour version as well.

Not a fan of red/blue; I think those colors clash when paired together.

I regret not getting this GMT (not my picture).

My definite preference is solid color, but I do want a Pepsi bezel. I don't think I'd own more than one Pepsi though, whereas I would own like 50 solid color/steel bezel GMTs.

I'm going to be that "rare bird" and say one solid colour. Bi-colour bezels are fun, especially with unorthodox colours like what Zodiac does, but I find solid colour bezels help the GMT hand pop.

It's like the Rolex GMT Master II with a black bezel and green GMT hand. Totally forget its digit name jargan, but it's my favourite GMT Master.

"Batman" for me, for sure.

Blue sky for day, black sky for night. It's completely intuitive.

The "Pepsi" is the icon... But the color scheme is a reference to a defunct corporate logo, not the the information the watch is trying to convey. The "Batman" communicates in terms of function and visual clarity.

Aesthetically, it's a subtle splash of color, without being too bold, or a clash.

I love it.

No nickname bezels for me.

Red and Blue.

I'll call a Pepsi a Rolex before I call a Rolex a Pepsi.

Isn't that the root beer bezel?
Thought this was:
15932967


Maybe in 1976 it was? I believe the modern root beer was introduced in 2018, but perhaps it had a lineage further than I am aware of.

Edit: I see some from 1976 like the other post being called the root beer while others call the all brown bezel from 1976 the root beer so not for me to say apparently!

Because I want to hear why people like them best.
I just bypassed the GMT and went with the World Timer instead ;-)
