I am hoping that this year we get a Pepsi or Coke GMT. I was reading TRF, and came across a post by Jocke that mentioned the following patent was recently filed by Rolex:
I found this paragraph particularly interesting:
" If other metals, such as iron, titanium, cobalt, manganese or vanadium are used instead of or in addition to chromium, it is possible to obtain a color other than red. With cobalt or iron, for example, it is thus possible to obtain a blue or green coloration depending on the degree of oxidation. The degree of oxidation is determined by the heat-treatment conditions, in particular the atmosphere present in the furnace."
There is a lot of talk in the patent about a red ceramic. This could be very interesting. I am not too familiar with international patent law, and this patent may go unused for a little while, but there is a chance!

+1 too al of these.

My oris worldtimer is a blue dial and I love it... but I think if I were going to do another blue (and money were no object), it would be this baby:
