Rolex’s Water Ghost and GMT Ⅱ often make people hesitant. The Internet is full of such questions. Today, the editor uses 116610LN and 116710LN to make a detailed comparison. They are also two Rolex watches with a high degree of attention. I hope it will be helpful for everyone to buy.
Both watches have a diameter of 40 mm, but there are obvious differences in appearance. The 116610LN uses a 60-minute chronograph outer ring, and the outer ring can only be rotated counterclockwise. 116710LN uses a 24-hour outer ring, which is a two-way rotating outer ring. In order to accurately display the time in the third time zone, it only has 24 positions to rotate, and it can only go from one position to the next. It cannot be stopped halfway. There is also a green 24-hour hand in the 116710LN dial, which is designed to show the second time zone. Attentive friends can find that the middle section of the hour hand of the Water Ghost series watch is thinner than the middle section of the minute hand, while the middle section of the Greenwich II hour hand and the middle section of the minute hand are generally thin.
The straps of both watches are made of solid 904L stainless steel. 116610LN is equipped with a Rolex Glidelock buckle, allowing divers to adjust the strap even when wearing a 3 mm wetsuit, making it more comfortable when wearing. This unique design allows the wearer to use no tools You can extend the strap by approximately 20 mm with a length of 2 mm per bar. 116710LN uses an easy-to-adjust chain extension system patented by Rolex. The strap can be expanded by 5 mm to make it more comfortable to wear.
From the function, we can also see that 116610LN only has the date display, and 116710LN has dual time zone display in addition to the date display. However, 116600LN has the function of fast date adjustment, while 116710LN does not have this function. The 116610LN is water-resistant to 300 meters and has a 60-minute chronograph outer ring for a countdown. The 116710LN is only 100 meters waterproof.
116610LN uses Rolex 3135 movement, while 116710LN uses Rolex 3186 movement. Movement 3135 is an upgrade of Rolex’s modern basic movement 3130. The 3186 adds GMT display function on the basis of the 3135 movement. The 3135 movement is a single Li 31 drill movement, and the 3186 is a single Li GAM movement. Both movements are equipped with Rolex’s blue niobium balance springs, which have very good anti-magnetic properties.
Summary: The domestic public price of 116610LN is 65900 yuan, and the domestic public price of 116710LN is 64900 yuan, which is 1,000 yuan cheaper than 116610LN. The price is not much different. Two watches, one in the sky and one in the water, choose the watch according to your needs and hobbies.
