Hi guys, I just published an article titled Rolex GMT Master II Blue Black 116710BLNR a.k.a. Batman. This watch is one of the most sought after watches on planet earth (I may have exaggerated just a little tiny bit on this claim, hahaha). It is also the first watch in the world that has 2 colours on a single ceramic bezel,
I wanted to get the GMT Master II for my son as a birthday present plus also as a reward for finally listening to me and attend Medical School. Click here to read my article titled My Pride and Joy Who Also Makes Me Poorer By The Day where I talked about my children’s education at my main blog.
However, when I called all the Rolex dealers in Melbourne and Malaysia during end of February and early March 2015 with the intention to purchase the GMT Master II Batman, they had no stock.
This demand for the GMT Master II Batman is so great that second hand watch dealers are selling it for above Rolex’s official retail price. And official Rolex dealers won’t offer you any discount for this said Blue Black bezel watch and some Official Rolex Dealers even informed me that they are selling it at premium price!
Thanks to my lucky star, couple days ago, I did managed to secure the Rolex GMT Master II 116710BLNR at retail price and even paid for it with 0% 12 Months Installment Plan with one of my many credit cards.

And in the above said article, I stated the retail price of the GMT Master II Blue Black 116710BLNR in Malaysia, Australia, Singapore and USA. Plus you get to see the GMT Master II Blue Black Batman side by side versus my Rolex GMT Master Pepsi 16700. Below is one of the many photos I posted.
The above mentioned article published at my Money For Luxury blog is a prelude to my article titled A Little Bit Of This and A Little Bit Of That – Volume I, Chapter VIII where I cover many subjects.
If you are a Malaysian, please click here to read my article titled A Little Bit Of This and A Little Bit Of That – Volume I, Chapter VIII and you may learn a thing or two about how blessed you are to be a Malaysian, about Maybank Q-Cash which is a money market product that pays interest better than Savings Accounts plus Maybank approved my request for temporary increase in credit limit within 6 hours. But be warned, this said article is freaking long.
Initially, I planned to use my Maybank American Express Credit Card to purchase the Rolex GMT Master II Batman watch with 0% Installment Plan. With the Maybank American Express, I can earn 5X reward points (Treats Points) in which I can convert to Enrich Miles. Maybank 2 Cards Premier AMEX Reserve and Visa Infinite earn me 5X TP for every Ringgit spent, and coupled it with the conversion rate of 4500 TP = 1000 Enrich Miles or Kris Flyer Miles, it is the quickest way for anyone to redeem Business Class tickets with either Malaysia Airlines or Singapore Airlines from their credit card usage.

However, I am sad to say that I did not get to use my Maybank AMEX Reserve to purchase the watch; but, instead use my UOB credit card which I have not been using for years. The good news is my watch dealer also accepts UOB credit cards for 0% Instalment Plan for Rolex watches. And best of all, so happened UOB was having a promotion and I ended getting 5X reward points too in which I could redeem for 20,000 Frequent Flyer Enrich Miles.
