Rolex’s GMT-Master II 126720VTNR left-handed “Sprite” is in reference to the bezel, made up of a lovely combination of black and iconic Rolex green. Although the crown and guard are featured on the left side of the dial, it still leaves room for ambidextrous wear. Another style change is the date window on the dial’s left side. The bracelet is available in two options, the Oyster bracelet, and Jubilee. The watch pictured below is fashioned on the Oyster bracelet, an elegant three-link design with center links polished and outer links satinated.
The Sprite is powered by the in-house caliber 3285 movement, the current Rolex calibers that offer a 70-hour power reserve. It is noteworthy to mention that although the Sprite uses the 3285 caliber as does the Pepsi and Batman, it’s an altered Calibre. A few modifications were necessary in order to emulate the movement to fit the crown and date wheel positioned at 9 o’clock.
Although a big change was made by modifying the direction of the GMT-Master II, some things still remain the same. The case measures 40mm in diameter, the bezel has a two-tone bi-directional frame cerachrom insert with recessed numerals and graduations, and the watch offers 100 meters of water resistance. The dial is a glossy black and features large applied hour markers and hands finished in 18k white gold with chromalight. A green arrow-tipped GMT hand pairs nicely with the Rolex green bezel. A creative and audacious move from Rolex has led to one of their most interesting watches yet.
