Looks wise is subjective, but practicality wise, I would think the GMT is better, with interchangable bezel and the extra GMT hand.

For diving wise, there is the SD. So in terms of product positioning, where does the sub lie?

of cos its subjective but market demand has resulted in the gmt 2 selling at much lower prices......the bezel insert is not that easy to change oso....gmt hand is useful if u travel to another time zone often....

sub is the original diving watch ......SD is for deep sea compression diving.....if u try on the SD....u will realise that the SD dial is 1mm smaller.....and the taller caseback makes the watch wear taller on ur wrist.....so some ppl still prefer a sub.....of cos the cyclop is also a factor....some ppl like it....some ppl dun.....

bracelet types....? how often do u see a gmt 2 with jubilee bracelet?.....practically nil cos not many like that combo.......so its still down to oyster bracelet....

the bezel insert colour is not like u can change anytime u want........it takes a bit of skill and practice to pop the bezel off and then remove the insert......

u have to do a complete service then they will change the hands for u......basic service starts from approx 300....not too sure about rolex singapore's policy for dial changes.....but for dj...there r certain options for dial u can choose.....mostly with diamonds

Seen a few GMTs on the web with nylon straps, and I must say they look pretty good

Funny thing is the price diff between the black bezel and the pepsi colour one, price difference is like around $300-400 (different discount) while the original bezels are selling for like US$80

yeah......that's very true......but rolex singapore will not sell u a bezel of a different colour.....some used watch stores have original bezels for sale.....so one can buy a pepsi gmt 2 and then obtain a used black bezel insert to save a few hundred bucks...

Any idea how do they get all the used parts? I thot rolex always practise a 1 to 1 exchange policy for all their parts?

And let's say u bring in a watch for servicing without a bracelet, would they just add a bracelet for you or would they insist you bring them 1 bracelet for them to replace?

TUNG CENTER WILL NOT ENTERTAINS yr watch if it is not in the original pattern.

ie bezel strap dial etcs

they will ask u go elsewhere.
