Origin of the Batman
In 2013, another two-toned bezel GMT-Master II was added to the collection- The Rolex Batman. Rolex fans dubbed this Rolex, the Batman, because its colors, were reminiscent of the DC comic book hero himself, Batman.
Batman can also be referred to as “Bruiser”, “Phantom”, or “Dark Knight”, but the “Batman is how this watch is more commonly referenced.
The Batman was the first of its kind to feature a two-toned Cerachrom bezel, prior to its release, Rolex had even stated that it could only produce a monochromatic Cerachrom bezel due to how difficult it was to craft.
This watch quickly captured the attention of watch buyers everywhere. Batman because not only a favorite in the GMT-Master II models but Rolex in general.

The Main Difference
The Rolex Batman and Rolex Batgirl are both popular and highly sought-after timepieces. When making an investment, such as a Rolex, there is never a right or wrong answer on which Rolex watch is “best”, it all comes down to preference.
The main difference between the Rolex Batman and Rolex Batgirl is the dial and bracelet.
When looking for a used or pre-owned, Rolex Batman, it will feature a three-link Oyster bracelet, while a used or pre-owned, Rolex Batgirl has a five-link Jubilee bracelet. It’s because of this difference that the watches are named the Batman and the Batgirl.
A three-link Oyster band has a thicker and naturally more masculine appearance, while the thinner links on the Batgirl, give a more delicate and feminine appearance.
Is the Batgirl A Women’s Watch?
Not really, though we think anyone can wear any Rolex. Even with the name “Batgirl”, this Rolex GMT-Master II model has not been considered a lady's watch.
