The Italian strap atelier’s first vintage car seat leather strap also came from a Porsche. It was a much younger and a different car than the 356, namely the Porsche 928. GLC produced 30 pieces of the 928 strap that also came with perforated rally-style holes. Just two years later, the company struck again. This time the designers worked with another iconic german car, the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL — a vintage classic.
Thirty pieces again in a bright red color. Finally, we arrive in 2021. Another two years have passed, and in true GLC Straps fashion, a third limited series is here, but this time in a much higher number. We have two styles of straps and 80 pieces each for €90. Whether that’s expensive or not is a subjective matter. I’d say it’s a fair price for what you are getting.
The Porsche’s seat was covered with black leather. Consequently, the GLC Porsche 356 Racing comes in a deep black color. While the surface has a minimal pattern when on the wrist, this is barely visible. The overall design resembles those vintage rally-style corfam straps you could see on Omega or Heuer chronographs from the 70s. As far as the measurements go, we have the classic 20/16mm lug end/buckle end size with a 75/120mm overall strap length.
At 3.2mm, the strap is not unusually thick; another trademark GLC took from the vintage counterparts. I love the overall size and thickness; it makes it easy to put the GLC Porsche 356 strap on pretty much any 20mm watch regardless of the lug length. The strap is soft and flexible due to the leather’s characteristics, with no need for an additional break-in period. GLC offers the Racing in 19-20mm with a steel or gold buckle.
At its beginning, in 1954, the bezel of the GMT-Master II was made of Plexiglas and the color and the white scale were printed on the underside. From 1959 to 2007, quality fake Rolex produced the bezel in aluminum, with the colors applied via an anodizing process. This was followed by a track made of zirconium oxide ceramic and with it, problems with the color. Monochromatic bezels were standard since two-tone tracks appeared to be a technical impossibility. But Rolex persisted in its research and found a solution for the first Batman by 2013. It developed and patented a process for the monobloc bezel that added a metallic salt on one half of the bezel prior to heat treatment in a kiln. The final colors were produced by sintering in a kiln at 1,600 degrees Celsius for more than 24 hours.
A second problem was achieving the desired red color for the blue-and-red Pepsi bezel, since there is no mineral-based pigment that produces a rich red. After years of research, perfect Rolex replica came to rely on a ceramic based on aluminum oxide and added chromium oxide, magnesium oxide and a rare-earth oxide to produce the red half of the ceramic bezel. For the blue color, one half of the bezel was saturated again with a metallic salt solution prior to sintering.
The bezels of the Batman and the Pepsi are based on different ceramic substances, zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide, which explains why the blue colors on the two bezels look so different. On our test watch, the blue appears much brighter than on the new Pepsi model. However, the incident light plays a major role on our perception of color and as always, there are slight differences among the Pepsi bezels.
Both materials forming the track condense and shrink during the sintering process and must be machined with diamond tools to the exact measurements. To ensure that the numerals remain perfectly legible, the entire ring is coated with platinum using a PVD process and then carefully polished to leave the precious metal behind in the recessed dots and numerals. Both processes have been patented by Swiss made fake Rolex. In addition to its scratch resistance, the ceramic bezels have the additional advantage of being UV resistant and do not fade.
