If the new Milgauss is $8.2K like the old one, I'd fork over another $750 and get a BLNR.  Plus according to that Rolex weight guide the GMT is heavier by 2 Poids...

I guess you could say its like wearing a trench coat even when you're not actually in a trench.

Mostly all modern Subs and GMT model numbers end with the bezel color. LV, LN, etc...

For two seconds I wondered why you had repeating references to blue and black but in French and English.  Then I realized this should be read up/down, not left to right.
