Rolex Has NOT Discontinued The Batman GMT-Master!

If you are a regular reader of Jake's Rolex World you know I specialize in busting falsely perpetuated Rolex myths. Clyde (Clyve The Watch Wrangler) reached out to me yesterday and said he heard a rumor that is swirling around all over the internet that said Rolex discontinued the Batman GMT-Master (BLNR), which made no sense to me!?!! I did some deep research on this and found ZERO evidence to support this viscous rumor.

If you think about it, why would Rolex discontinue one of the most popular new models in its history? It's a fact the original Batman, Adam West died last year, but so far as I can tell the Rolex Batman is still very much alive!! Long Live The Batman...

Rolex collectors and enthusiasts love to use nicknames for different Rolex models, like The Pepsi, or Coke GMT-Master or the 7up Submariner for the original LV Submariner. The all Green LV Submariner is nicknamed The Hulk, and Rolex collectors have affectionally nicknamed new Night & Day Rolex GMT-Master as "The Batman" since it is silver, black and blue like Batman's uniform. Very cool!
