The Price Performance of the Rolex GMT Master II Batman in 2021

Now this one is a shocker. The GMT Master II has inspired countless dual time zone watches across the spectrum, from accessible homages to serious watchmakers using the now iconic black and blue Batman rotating bezel in their own ways. Unfortunately for Rolex, releasing the new, modern version of the Batman may have worked against them, as in the past 12 months the price of one of these has actually dropped by over £1,500.

A few months back, that would’ve been £2,000. It’s made a bit of a comeback recently, but it’s still well below where it was. Does that mean the Rolex bubble is bursting? Probably not, and we’d not be surprised if it’s just a blip. It does however flash a few warning signals for that particular reference. You’d be better off with the Pepsi original.

Starting price: £7,550
Pre-owned price end of Q4: £15,115
Total increase/decrease: +£7,565
