As the representative of the Luminor series, 111 is the Panako just after the acquisition of Richemont after the push style, before rumors that has been discontinued, the fact that this year’s 111 than last year’s factory is also high, the reason for the sale of rumors Because it is really difficult to grab, the market is still selling the basic belong to the sea beads.

How does the luminous function of wrist watch come true?

The luminous watch can still read the time without difficulty in the night. It is not only convenient, but also very magical.

The reason for this is that luminous watches are often painted with luminous material on pointers and time scales. At present, the most popular type of luminous material used in advanced watches is SuperlumiNova, which has no radiation and can emit light for a long time.

This material belongs to the light storage type, generally speaking, the material itself does not light, but through the light, until the “eat” light, will show its mettle, bring clear display in the dark place. As a result, some brands use lights to show their watches in order to show their luminous effects.

There is, of course, a self luminous, that is, without the external light, itself will shine. For example, Ball and other brands, the use of a self luminous micro gas lamp, equivalent to in the pointer, when the standard place a small light bulb, and sometimes colorful, very beautiful.

If you need to purchase a luminous watch,  in the end the brand has Ball mentioned before, the high-end brand, Blancpain fifty fathoms, Rolex, Panerai etc. are good. Rolex is now using luminous, usually Chromalight, a unique blue light at night than the above mentioned SuperlumiNova brighter, and Panerai can be said to be the first to do luminous watch brand, regardless of appearance or luminous, are very awesome.

Blancpain

In the 50s of last century, the French Navy formed an elite diving force named “Nageurs de combat”. They are hoping to find a can guarantee the divers in the deep sea mission can be accurate and clear when reading the watch. At the time, however, none of the watches in the market met the requirements of the French navy.

Why can’t you really have a Patek Philippe?

Patek Philippe was founded in 1839, has more than 150 years of history, Geneva is the family of independent watchmakers, which in the Swiss watch brand has been rare. Has a long history, exquisite workmanship, independence, is the core concept of the brand, the product has always been a good reputation.

Patek Philippe has the most complex design in its minimalist design. Have a Patek Philippe, has become a symbol of true love form, because whether it is worn, or collection, the value of Patek Philippe are distant and precious, declared: “no one can have a Patek Philippe, but for the next generation of custody.”

A really good watch can be felt instantly when it is close to the skin. This is an invisible, silent emotional communication that exists only between the table and the host, as if holding a mind home, listening to the flow of time in private silence. Life comes to an end, time is still moving forward. The meaning of life lies in the passing of the blood of the future, while the watch is passed on to the next generation and continues to watch the time with the next generation.

Training a watchmaker Patek Philippe takes 10 years, and the production of each table from the design to the factory for at least 5 years: 4 years of study design, 9 months (like pregnant baby) 3 months of production, installation and quality control. It will take longer if you make it tailor-made. Complex functions are the top technology in watchmaking, and Patek Philippe’s homage is the combination of “perfect complexity” and “perfect precision”.

Patek Philippe’s dignity lies not only in its elegant appearance, but also in its extremely sophisticated mechanical complexity. “The most complicated appearance, with the most complicated forms,” has always been the norm for Patek Philippe. The Patek Philippe watch manufactured in nineteenth Century, even though the axle end has been rotated hundreds of billions of times on bearings, is still very accurate today.

As everyone knows that Rolex is a Christie’s and Sotheby international auction mechanism, and it is also one of the most popular brands of two (the other is a great reputation of Patek Philippe). Next, let’s explain why Rolex is so popular.

Appearance

Antique Rolex appearance is acceptable, not very old, mainly come from the Rolex oyster lock and lock design, which make the waterproof performance is better than other non ho type design, but also because it is waterproof good opportunity bad parts, the original degree will be higher, in addition Rolex in the common market, Rolex customer service is well done, so non original alternatives are relatively rare.

Practicability

There are two keys to a watch. The first point is that it doesn’t damage when worn. Antique Rolex although more than 4-50 years, but the time is still very accurate, waterproof is still very strong, you can also wear normally. Second: good appearance, antique Rolex popular in recent years as well as a major reason: it is in line with the trend of large table size, antique Rolex Datejust, is 35mm, Day-Date, 36mm, drowner Daytona is 40mm.

Maintain value

Rolex has always been famous for its value, but only in comparison with other brands. Antique Rolex preservation is justified, justified, with the above two points of its own conditions and the number of audience groups, the number of tenure, not by sheer speculation. Can such watches be unpopular?

What’s the difference between quartz watches and mechanical watches?

Fundamentally, the biggest difference between quartz watches and mechanical watches is that they drive different sources of power. Quartz watch is issued by the battery power to “stimulate” quartz crystal form, of which the law of vibration driven by the hour and minute hand operation, because the vibration of quartz is very regular, so when the quartz watch will be much more accurate than mechanical watches, one day the error will not exceed a second rate.

Manual chain mechanical table to be tightened by rotating the hairspring crown gear drive operation, then the balance rotating through gossamer natural relaxation, and drive other components to rotate, so as to achieve the purpose of running watch. Automatic timepiece is coupled with a weight balance, when the hand motion is able to watch the movement chain, which led to a series of gear transmission.

Mechanical watches can be divided into two kinds of manual and automatic:

Powered mechanical watch movement depend on remontoir, do not need batteries.

Mechanical travel time and quartz watch, mechanical watch is the second uninterrupted walk.

Because the mechanical watch movement is complex, the travel time error depends on each brand.

Fine workmanship, easy to use, the upper winding, more than 36 hours can walk. Long movement life.

The appearance is heavier than the quartz watch, and some brands are thin, but they are usually manual mechanical watches.

Quartz watches can be divided into digital, pointer and automatic watch and optical kinetic watches:

The quartz watch is very accurate.

The movement adopts the integrated circuit, the structure is much simpler than the mechanical watch movement, and the assembly is very convenient.

Easy to use, do not need to wind up, a battery generally available for 2-3 years. But some quartz watches with lithium batteries, long service life, can be used for about 7-8 years.

Quartz watches are cheaper than mechanical watches.

A simple but interesting question. Why do most watches come in circular designs?

In many people’s impression, it’s normal that the watch case is round, and some square watches make people feel very uncomfortable, then why watches are mostly circular design? Today, let’s talk about it.

Before the appearance of the watch, people watch the time with the pocket watch, so now the design of the watch will be a lot of design from the pocket watch, then why pocket to use a round design?

Because both pocket watches and watches are designed for personal effects. At the time, the machined metal did not make the edges and corners of the metal smooth, so if the pocket watch was designed to be angular, it would be uncomfortable to wear it.

And watch movements in the early, basically are circular, watch movement splint, escapement, balance wheel is arranged in the circular design is more reasonable, and the movement of square design wiould influence the increase of size, or influence the gear layout.

Moreover, from the point of view of design beauty, whether it is pocket watch or watch, the pointer runs along the center of the circle, so the circular watch makes the overall design more beautiful and comfortable.

In addition, the circular dial also allows users to naturally focus on the visual focus in the center of the dial, quickly read the time. At the same time, the  round watch case design can let the watch wear more comfortable than square watch.

Whether you wear it to formal occasions or sport diving, it’s not stressed.

Why do we love them? Rolex Daytona 116508 and IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph.

Why do we love it?Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 In Yellow Gold With Green DialWhy do we love them? Rolex Daytona 116508 and IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph.

The Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 in yellow gold with green dial.

The Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 in yellow gold with green dial.

What Is It?

This is the reference 116508, and it’s the well-known Daytona but in yellow gold with a green dial and red accents. Sure, the steel/ceramic combo got all the attention (like, seriously, all the attention), but we were able to see this watch at Baselworld privately and loved it. Now that it is out in the world for everyone to see, we can finally talk about it. In person, the dial color is much more of a deep emerald green than it looks in the press images  (Jack almost had a heart attack when he saw it, in keeping with his weakness for gold Rolexes).

Why Do We Love It?

Because if you haven’t figured it out by now, we’re pretty big Daytona fans here at HODINKEE HQ, and I am personally into a bit of bling. It’s also almost the polar opposite of the Daytona that everyone’s talking about right now, and a bit of a contrarian’s solution to the popularity and, some would say, overexposure of the steel/ceramic modeld.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph

IWC Pilot's Watch Timezoner Chronograph.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph.

What Is It?

This cool worldtime chronograph from IWC is another one that sadly seemed to get lost in the year’s shuffle. This watch is particularly cool as it allows the wearer to change the timezone simply by turning the bezel to the correct city. This technology was initially invented by Michael Vogt and his company Vogard. IWC later purchased this technology, and voila! You have the 45mm Timezoner Chronograph. On top of this new worldtime function, the watch features a flyback chronograph, 24-hour indication, summer time indication, 12-hour and 30-minute registers, time (duh) and date.

Why Do We Love It?

This watch features an in-house IWC caliber (89760) movement and the classic aviator styling. It’s also a great example of IWC reinterpreting complications in new, practical ways (with some help from acquired technology, if we’re being fair). Worldtime and travel time watches can be difficult and clumsy to use, but this one’s extremely easy. Some folks find it too big and/or too busy, and while there is something to both objections, we loved the combination of a chronograph with a great, and unusual, implementation of a dual time zone complication.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What may seem like a few minor design changes here and there actually mean a lot of serious firsts with the new-for-2017 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary model reference 126600, making this replacement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 one of the more important releases of Baselworld 2017.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

First and foremost, let’s begin with the tech specs, as with this new reference 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller has received five major updates: first, it has grown from 40mm to 43 millimeters wide, making for a very considerable difference between the Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary and the Submariner (which is 40mm). Second, it received a cyclops over the date, a first for a Rolex Sea-Dweller and as controversial an update as the growth in size. Third, it is now powered not by the 3135 but the updated 3235 caliber (the same as the Datejust 41 reviewed here). Fourth, it has a redesigned bracelet that is now wider and makes for a more secure fit on the wrist. Last, but not least, it pays tribute to the original Sea-Dweller of 1967.

While in this regard the added width makes sense, the new-found cyclops – again, new for the Rolex Sea-Dweller altogether – arguably is an even more controversial decision. The Rolex Sea-Dweller, some argued, from the get-go should have been a larger alternative to the No-Date and Date Submariner models (instead, all three watches thus far had been 40mm wide) – but the cyclops, even Rolex admits, is a less obvious and more controversial addition.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

A lesser-known fact is that the original Rolex Sea-Dweller of 1967 did not have a cyclops because when Rolex added it to the plexiglass front, it caused structural weaknesses in it and ultimately caused it to shatter before reaching the desired depth rating – and so the cyclops was omitted. The Rolex Sea-Dweller all until 2017 has maintained its cyclops-free looks, making yet another reason for it to be a Submariner alternative (as, clearly, not everyone is a fan of the cyclops-look). Now, in this regard, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is more in line with all other collections, with only the Deepsea now standing out from the rest, as it still does not have a cyclops over its date aperture.

The movement, as we have noted, is the new 3235, an automatic, fully Rolex-designed and -made caliber that complies with Rolex’s -2/+2 second daily accuracy (all details here) and offers an extended 70 hours of power reserve over the previous Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 48 hours. It, hence, features Rolex’s high-capacity mainspring barrel, its Chronergy escapement with paramagnetic nickel-phosphorous pallet fork and escape wheel, Paraflex shock absorbers, Parachrom hairspring, a large balance wheel with Microstella variable inertia lugs and an operating frequency of 4Hz. It is the latest and greatest tech-fest that Rolex can offer at the moment.

The new Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 904L Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterlock safety clasp, Fliplock extension system for an added 26mm of reach along with the Rolex Glidelock system for 2mm-increment fine adjustments over a distance of 20mm. Typical Rolex Sea-Dweller feats such as the black Cerachrom bezel with PVD-applied platinum numerals, flat front sapphire crystal and 1,220m of water resistance enforced by a helium escape valve inside the left side of the case (see its components below) remain present.

Available exclusively with a black dial with white gold hands and indices and Chromalight lume, the stand-out feature (if we can call it that) here is the red Sea-Dweller designation over the usual depth rating and COSC certification reminder.

Last year, when everyone was expecting a new Daytona, I don’t find it a stretch to say that many were looking forward to seeing something really quite close to the Newman Daytonas of old, or at least a perfect panda dial – and yet, Rolex has decided to tip-toe their way around that. A few years ago, the re-launch of the Pepsi-bezel GMT was also close to its predecessor but very clearly different in its colors than the original. Here, however, we are looking at a clear reference to one of the defining aesthetic elements of an early Rolex collection, making it a small change, but possibly a significant one to many Rolex fans.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Anyhow, the 43mm-wide Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 is the new and only Rolex Sea-Dweller in town from now on, as it fully replaces the 40mm-wide Sea-Dweller 4000. It looks bold and feels heavy on the wrist, but it carries that heft in a much more balanced manner when compared to how its predecessor had done.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What truly makes it an interesting step on Rolex’s part is how the new Rolex Sea-Dweller now blends more into the Rolex dive watch range with its cyclops fitted over its date, and how it stands out with its boldly different 43mm-wide diameter. In closing, it is worth imagining what this watch would have been like without the red text and the cyclops but everything as it is now – it would have made for a long-expected update bringing on better proportions and a larger alternative to those who have been on the lookout for something larger than a Submariner but not as bold as the Deepsea.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

As it stands now, however, it certainly cannot be called another safe step from Rolex – they admittedly made the controversial decision of not only considerably upping the size but also adding the cyclops, rendering this a truly new Rolex Sea-Dweller that offers more than a mere face-lift (and not just by Rolex standards). Price for the new Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 isCHF10,800 including tax.

We have same type , the price is lower a lot, if you are interested in, please contact us.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610

WRIST TIME REVIEWS

 

Rolex is as much a lifestyle as it is a watch brand, but we feel that a hands-on Rolex Submariner review is still necessary as it is meant to be worn and used. The company is a legend, and their products are the cornerstone of an industry that sells dreams, status, quality and ideally, value. Whether or not individual entities in the luxury industry can deliver on these promises is a different story, but what makes Rolex so famous is its consistent ability to actually deliver these goals to a large degree. So today I look at probably the most popular Rolexproduct, the Rolex Submariner.

For review, I am looking at two Rolex Submariner models in steel. These represent the newest generation Rolex Submariner timepieces and are often referred to as the Rolex Submariner Date and Rolex Submariner No Date. The difference between them should be clear. One has a date window with magnifier over that window on the sapphire crystal, while the No Date has none of that for a cleaner looking dial. While the difference is minor, it is these little differences which are important to Rolex fans, and the price difference between the two is not inconsequential. UPDATE: Check our long-term Rolex Submariner 114060 watch review on aBlogtoWatch for even more.

While I am very well-versed in all things “watches,” I don’t consider myself to be a Rolex expert compared to many people that I know. I have a basic understanding of the brand’s history, the evolution of its products, and what is appealing about watches like the Rolex Submariner. Other people have extremely detailed knowledge of each and every product, hard-to-find timepieces, differences in products as they evolves, etc… The purpose of this review is to discuss the modern Rolex Submariner to the mainstream watch lovers and those interested in why this is a worthy timepiece. In short, the Rolex Submariner started the dive watch craze that made those types of sport watches the most desirable type of timepiece on the planet – and with its crown logo, the Rolex Submariner thematically rules over the lot.

The Movement

Let me state now that the Rolex Submariner is not the most expensive, most durable, most complicated, or best looking high-end dive watch around. There are dozens of more expensive steel sport watches, and tons that can take much more of a beating. Rolex is also known for making very good, but simple movements (for the most part). Rolex mechanical movements have a reputation for being rather accurate, long-lived, and easy to work on. Many of the watch makers that I’ve spoken to voice positive sentiments in working on Rolex movements. Still, servicing a mechanical watch is not all that cheap.

Inside of these two Rolex Submariner models are two different movements (because one contains the date and the other doesn’t) but practically speaking they are more or less the same. The Rolex Submariner Date (Ref. 116610 AKA 116610LN) contains the in-house made Rolex caliber 3135 automatic movements, while the Rolex Submariner No Date contains the Rolex caliber 3130. Both of the movements feature Rolex’s newer Parachrom hairsprings and have a power reserve of about two days when fully wound. Rolex also has the majority of their watches (including all Rolex Submariner models) COSC Chronometer certified. The 3135 and 3130 are about as good as can be hoped for from relatively basic three-hand automatic movements. No one per se buys a Rolex for the movement, but at the same time, the movements don’t really leave much to be desired given the price and intended use. They are durable and mechanically sound – enough said.

The Design

Rolex claims to have invented the water-tight watch case with the Oyster. True enough, they did produce the first commercially noteworthy water resistant watch with the Oyster. For that reason you see the “Oyster” label on a lot of Rolex products, even though there isn’t a Rolex watch called the Oyster these days. It is a signifier that the watch is water resistant. Of course, the Rolex Submariner is more than just that. Originally designed as a commercial diver’s watch in the 1950s, the Rolex Submariner today has a water resistance of 300 meters and a design that is incredibly similar to the original. This design that mixes sport and professional looks is one of the key factors to the design’s success. The dial of the Rolex Submariner is clever, yet easy on the eyes. The black and white design is meant to offer a high contrast for easy reading of the time. The lumed indicators and hands are meant to make it easy to read in the dark. A different style of hour and minute hand are there for legibility, and a special character for the 12 o’clock indicator is meant to make it easy to mentally orient the dial when looking at it from the side.

 

Rolex also uses 18k white gold on the dial for the hands and hour indicators. A few years ago Rolex switched from a green toned lumed to a blue one. This not only made the lume glow blue, but allows for it to look more white during the day. Rolex also increased the size of the hands and hour markers a few years ago when they introduced their “Maxi dial” style which I personally liked, but of course proved controversial. Every change the brand makes is controversial, even when they did something small such as removing the lug spring bar holes on the exterior of the case. The Rolex Submariner dial is a testament to legibility and functionality. The Rolex Submariner is a tool watch with a slick design that lasted the test of time. It is good because it was never design to be anything more than a good looking, legible dial. It is a tool, and we like tools that work well. Rolex also makes their own dials. Precision machining and printing on the dial is very good. When you look at a Rolex Submariner’s dial closeup, you’ll notice that the lume is evenly applied, and that everything is cut very well.

The Case

Even though the Rolex Submariner is a tool watch at heart, Rolex knows it is a luxury item today. So there are little things here and there meant for looks more than function. A good example is the sapphire crystal. Rolex applies a coat of AR on the bottom of the crystal, but not on the top. This allows for the top of the crystal to be reflective and sort of makes it more shiny to onlookers. This is arguably a design decision by Rolex to make their products stand out more. It works too. The Rolex Submariner case has changed very little over the years, but each improvement is welcome. The current size of the Rolex Submariner is 40mm wide, but it wears large for that size. This is because of the lug structure. I would say that the piece wears closer to a 42mm wide watch.

Rolex famously uses plain casebacks on its watches. The Rolex Submariner’s screw-in caseback is devoid of any markings. The watches I have for review were loaned from our friends at the Rolex boutique nearby in Beverly Hills. We agreed not to remove the protective plastic on the sides of case, which you’ll probably see in the pictures. There is also a type of bar code on the side of the case which is a serial identifier. That is removed when people buy the watch. Rolex uses a grade of steel called 904L. Most steel watches use 316L steel. The differences are minor, but involve more corrosion resistance in 904L steel from what I understand. So if your Rolex Submariner spends a lot of time in saltwater, then it will look better.

It is widely known that Rolex is fanatical about their metal. They do a lot of metallurgy in-house, and not all steel of the same grade is made equal. I’ve seen a lot of steel watches in my time and can say that no one makes steel or polishes a case quite like Rolex – and they so do fantastically using high-tech machines in rather large production volumes. This isn’t about tiny details, but rather that the steel of a Rolex Submariner looks and feels a bit different than the steel of other watches. This is of course due in part thanks to Rolex’s amazing brushed finishing that is applied to much of the Rolex Submariner case. Other parts of the case (such as the sides) are given a polished finish. These “alternating finishes” help the case to look its best.

Around the dial is a rotating diver’s bezel which is more or less a standard element on the majority of dive watches. This bezel can be turned by your hand and gives you the ability to line up the 12 o’clock point with the minute hand to measure something that is up to 60 minutes long. This has a purpose while diving, but most people use it to measure short things like parking meters and cooking times while being an at-home chef. The bottom line is that even though the Rolex Submariner is a diver’s watch, a very small percentage of the people who own it dive. Why buy a dive watch then? Well it is really about an appreciation for what a dive watch can do and what it represents. Activity, durability and exploration. While we aren’t engaged in these things all the time, we like to keep capable items near us.

 

The rotating bezel on the Submariner used to have an aluminum insert with the minute indicators printed on it, but a few years ago Rolex moved over to making ceramic bezels. This was a distinct upgrade and Rolex calls their ceramic “Cerachrom.” Sounds fancy right? The production process of the bezel include engraved numerals and lume. Some dive watches have lume in the entire bezel, but the Submariner is more traditional with a single lume point (pip) at 12 o’clock. The black ceramic bezel is shinier than aluminum, but is much more durable and very scratch resistant. Ceramic bezels are a wonderful thing. Among the various Rolex Submariner models available you can get ceramic bezels in black, blue, and green.

On the wrist, the Rolex Submariner is a very comfort friendly watch. Rolex has had literally decades to improve the design. It feels so natural on your wrist and for a dive watch it doesn’t have a very tall profile either. There is a good reason that many people choose the Rolex Submariner as a daily wear. Aside from being very comfortable, the Rolex Submariner has the added quality of looking good on most wrists. Plus, it has versatile style that seemingly works with everything from jeans and t-shirt to practically a tuxedo. Very few watches can claim that.

 

The Bracelet

Rolex offered a significant bracelet upgrade for its newest generation Rolex Submariner models. The most important elements of the upgrade are the bracelet’s profile and ability to be micro-adjusted. More on that in a second. For years, the Rolex Submariner bracelet was a three-link tapering steel bracelet. Tapering means that the lugs get narrower closer to the deployant clasp. This actually helps the bracelet be more comfortable, and visually makes the case look a bit larger. Few brands make bracelets with tapering links because it increases the numbers of part types they need to produce to make them. Though I recommend tapering bracelets when they are available.

For many years, Rolex deployant clasps stuck out awkwardly under your wrist. With the newest generation bracelets, they offer a much more clean profile – which was a welcome improvement. A lot of people buy the Rolex Submariner over other Rolex watches because of its Glidelock adjustment system. The idea is that you can micro-adjust the size of the bracelet within a few millimeters on the fly. This means that as your wrist naturally expands, you can re-size the bracelet with ease, or increase the size of the bracelet to be worn over a jacket or dive suit. The design and comfort of the bracelet should not be under-estimated, nor should you ignore these elements as a major selling point behind this model of Rolex watch. Sadly Rolex doesn’t offer the Glidelock system with even similar watches such as the Explorer II – though you can get it in the beefier Deepsea models. As an interesting tangent, you should check out the spring-loaded system thatRolex/Tudor designed for the Pelagos here.

 

The Value

Now it all comes down to cost in the end. For some people a Rolex Submariner is a cheap daily wear, but for many people it is an item of aspiration with a price in the several thousand dollars. Over the years, the price of Rolex Submariner watches has creeped up to rather ambitious levels. Rolex still sells them in large quantities. The good news is that unlike many luxury watches, Rolex timepieces tend to hold value very well, and that is especially the case with the Rolex Submariner. While you probably aren’t going to get rich buying one, you will likely be able to resell it for a price close to what you paid for it. That is good news for people who like to upgrade or switch watches every few years, or if you are in a financial pinch.

As I said, the Rolex Submariner Date and No Date models have two different prices attached to them. The difference in price has to do with the date complication and really depends on what you like. Though the roughly $1,000 difference is appreciable. Some people hate the “cyclops” magnifier on the dial and love the clean look of a simple dial. Others feel that it is only a real Rolex with the date window and crystal bubble. For the Rolex Submariner Date ref. 116610LN the price is$8,550, and the Rolex Submariner 114060 is retails for $7,500.

We also have same type, the price is lower a lot, if you are interested in, please feel free to contact us.

Audemars Pigeut Royal Oak , Witness the Passage of Time

Audemars Pigeut inherits and carries forward the Swiss traditional watchmaking essence, and always adheres to the brand philosophy of “managing the routine and casting innovation”. Each of Audemars Pigeut’s works has concentrated on the exquisite craftsmanship of the brand for a hundred years. It is the unremitting devotion of craftsmen and craftsmen who has shown the remarkable and painstaking efforts of the brand.

The Audemars Pigeut Royal Oak Chronograph was first introduced in 1997. In 2012, Audemars Pigeut increased the size of the Royal Oak Chronograph to 41 millimeters. The size and scale of the Royal Oak chronograph watch is even better. This year’s 2017 Royal Oak chronograph is the 20th anniversary anniversary of the Royal Oak chronograph series.

Since its introduction, the Royal Oak has been synonymous with the advanced sport table. Only a sporting style that is not enough, so there are some specialized functions to highlight its differences.

Do you know the history of Rolex?

Rolex (Rolex) is a classic brand in the Swiss watch industry. It is known for designing and creating watches specifically for  special populations of sportsmen and adventurers.  The first sign of Rolex was an open fingers of the hand, it said that the brand  of watches is crafted by hand, and later evolved into a registered trademark of the crown, to show their dominance in the field of  watches, and the Rolex Regal in watchmaking.

 

Rolex (Rolex) is a famous Swiss watch manufacturer, formerly known as Wilsdorf and Davis (W&D). First, it was managed by the German Hans Wisdorf and Davies British in London in 1905. In 1908, Hans Wisdorf was registered in La Schade Finn (La Chaux-de- Fonds) in Switzerland and was renamed ROLEX. After a century of development, Rolex company has 19 subsidiaries, 24 large service centers in the world’s major cities, become the market share of one of the great brand watches.

 

 

Rolex is creative and full of energy, seek to improve the quality, for Rolex, “morality” is the key. The design style of Rolex watches “stable, suitable, not flashy”, has been respected, and the precision and durability make Rolex extraordinary worth. Rolex watches each technician has the same faith, that is, everything must be better.

10 Things to Know About Omega

Omega is among the best-known luxury watch brands on the planet, and certainly the best known off the planet. From NASA to the Olympics to James Bond, not to mention names like SpeedmasterSeamaster and Constellation, the brand has achieved well-deserved rock-star status among watch enthusiasts everywhere. Here are 10 things you should know about Omega.1. What’s In a Name?

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded the company that would become Omega in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. In 1877, his sons Louis-Paul and César joined him, and the company name was changed to Louis Brandt & Fils.

2. Precision Timing

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, before quartz and GPS, nations and industries depended on precise mechanical timepieces. To encourage improvements in this field, Observatory trials were held. These chronometric marathons tested timepieces of various types for extended periods, and the winners earned substantial publicity and bragging rights. Top manufacturers competed against each other head to head to win these Superbowls of watchmaking. Omega enjoyed tremendous success at these trials, setting numerous world records. At the 1931 Geneva Observatory trials, Omega won First Prize in all six categories. That same year, the company adopted the advertising slogan “Omega – Exact time for life.” That was not hyperbole, but a claim backed up by decades of Observatory trial results.

3. Exploring the Ends of the Earth

Who led the first surface expedition to reach the North Pole? Was it Robert Peary? Perhaps Frederick Cook? How about Ralph Plaisted? Chances are you’re not familiar with the last name, but you should be, because the story of who actually reached the North Pole first via an overland route is a fascinating one. You can read more about it here.

Of the three candidates, Plaisted seems the least likely to claim the title. He was an insurance salesman from Minnesota who was also an avid outdoorsman and snowmobiler. Friends said that if he liked the newly-invented snowmobile so much, he should drive one to the North Pole. And in what sounds like a modern made-for-GoPro story, he did. His party set out on the 412-mile trek from Canada’s Ward Hunt Island, not far from Peary’s start on Ellesmere Island. Riding snowmobiles and armed with Omega Speedmasters and sextants to track their location, they reached their final camp on April 19, 1968, after a 43-day trek. Plaisted’s team was the first to receive independent confirmation that it had actually reached the North Pole, when a U.S. Air Force C-135 flew overhead and confirmed their location.  Today, many historians of polar exploration agree that Plaisted’s party was the first to reach the North Pole by an overland route.

At the other end of the planet, in February, 1990, Arved Fuchs and Reinhold Messner completed what some called the “last possible land journey on earth.” The pair crossed Antarctica on foot. The 1,740-mile journey took 92 days. Enduring temperatures of -40° F and winds exceeding 90 mph, they crossed the Thiel mountains to the South Pole, then continued on to McMurdo Sound on the Ross Sea. Messner’s timekeeper on this journey was an Omega Speedmaster.

4. Speedy in Space

In the autumn of 1962, a group of astronauts including Walter Schirra and Leroy “Gordo” Cooper walked into a watch shop in Houston looking for watches to use on their upcoming Mercury program flights. They left with Omega Speedmasters, and so began Omega’s history with space exploration.

At the end of the Mercury program the following year, astronauts approached NASA Operations Director Deke Slayton and asked to be issued with watches for use during training and flight. Their timing was perfect, because NASA had just hired a group of engineers to evaluate, test and certify equipment for use by astronauts. NASA eventually tested watches provided by Omega, Rolex, and Longines-Wittnauer. The tests were brutal, designed to test watches to destruction. On March 1, 1965, NASA selected the winner, certifying the Speedmaster reference ST105.003 “Flight Qualified for all Manned Space Missions”.

Fast forward to July 21, 1969.Neil Armstrong stepped off the Eagle to become the first human to stand on another world. However he was not wearing his watch. He left it on the Eagle, because the on-board clock was not working. A few minutes later, Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon’s surface, wearing his watch, and the Omega Speedmaster Professional became the first watch to be worn on the Moon.

5. Master of the Sea

Omega launched the Seamaster line in 1948 to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary. That makes it the oldest line in the current collection, which also includes the Speedmaster, Constellation and De Ville. The Seamaster was loosely based on the watches Omega made for the British military at the end of World War II.

In 1957, Omega launched the Professional range of Seamaster watches with the debut of the Omega Seamaster 300. Jacques Cousteau’s team used the Seamaster 300 during its “Precontinent II” experiments in the Red Sea in the summer of 1963 to prove that divers could live in a submerged saturated gas environment for long periods without adverse effects. Military units, including the British Special Boat Service, chose the Seamaster 300 as their official watch.

As divers lived and worked at ever-greater depths, Omega began work on the famous “Ploprof” (PLOngeur PROFessionel, or “professional diver” in English) Seamaster 600, launched to the public in 1970 after four years of research and testing. During the R&D process, Omega tested the PloProf to 600 meters at the factory, and to 1,000 meters off the coast of Marseilles. In September, 1970, three COMEX divers wore the PloProf for eight days, working in the water four hours per day, at a depth of 250 meters. Cousteau’s divers also used the watches off the coast of Marseille during a set of experiments to test the effects on divers working at depths up to 500 meters. To this day, the Omega Seamaster name is synonymous with professional diving. (For our test of the modern Omega Ploprof, click here.)

6. Olympic Timing

Omega manufactured its first chronograph in 1898, and within 10 years, the timepieces had been used to measure time at more than 16 sporting competitions. After winning 1st place in all six categories at the 1931 Geneva Observatory trials, Omega’s reputation for accuracy led the International Olympic Committee to appoint Omega as the official timekeeper of the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. This was the first time in Olympic history that one brand had been given the responsibility to time all events. The brand supplied 30 high-precision chronographs capable of measuring 1/10th of a second (an Olympics first), all of which had been certified as chronometers by the Observatory at Neuchâtel as well as the National Physics Laboratory in the United States. (The timekeepers at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam used their personal stopwatches.)

Even Omega’s advanced stopwatches did not eliminate Olympic controversy. In five different races, the winner and runner-up were recorded as having the same time. The most famous controversy involved the 100-meter dash and the duel between Ralph Metcalfe and Thomas Edward “Eddie“ Tolan. To the spectators, it appeared that Metcalfe won the race, and the timekeepers’ hand-held stopwatches recorded three times of 10.3 seconds for Metcalfe and two times of 10.3 and one of 10.4 seconds for Tolan. Yet Tolan was declared the winner, in an early Olympic “photo finish.”

A “Chronocinema“ camera filmed the end of each race, and it was used to record times to the nearest 1/100th of a second. The rules at that time stated that the winner was the first runner whose torso completely crossed the finish line, not the one whose torso reached the line first. After reviewing the film, the judges ruled that Tolan had won, fully crossing the line 5/100ths of a second ahead of Metcalfe.

This controversy presaged the need for ever more accurate timers, and methods of determining winners. Omega says that today, timing an Olympics requires several hundred professional timekeepers and data handlers, supported by up to a thousand specially trained local volunteers, all using some 400 tons of equipment, including scoreboards, miles of cables and optical fiber, and state-of-the-art timekeeping and data-handling technology, developed by Omega and adapted to the requirements of each sport.

7. James Bond and Film

Over the years, James Bond has worn a couple of watch brands, but today, none is more closely associated with the storied franchise than Omega. The year 1995 marked two firsts for the famous agent: GoldenEye featured a new James Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, and the Omega Seamaster debuted on his wrist. Since then, 007 has worn Omega in Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and SPECTRE (in which Bond donned a new Omega Seamaster 300).

When it comes to James Bond wristwatch auction results, Omega Seamaster Planet Oceans hold the top two places. The top watch, used in the filming ofCasino Royale, sold at the 2007 Antiquorum OmegaMania auction for CHF 250,250. A Seamaster Planet Ocean used in the filming of Skyfall sold at Christies’ “50 Years of James Bond” sale in 2012 for CHF 236,473.

Omega timepieces have appeared in many other films, including Up in the Air, Salt, War of the Worlds, The Bounty Hunter, The Right Stuff, Event Horizon, Millennium, Jack Reacher, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Ronin, Seven Years in Tibet, The Omega Man, and My Fellow Americans.

Of course, one of Omega’s most famous starring roles came in Apollo 13. The film documented the mission with the unlucky number that was cut short by an explosion that deprived the spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply and electric power. The film accurately portrays the astronauts wearing Omega Speedmasters, and the key role the Speedmaster played in getting the crew safely back to Earth. Due to the failure of an onboard electric timer, the astronauts relied on their Speedmasters to time critical burns (powering engines on and off). These burns had to be precisely the right duration to get the spacecraft pointed in exactly the right direction so that it could enter the atmosphere without bouncing off or burning up. The Speedmasters performed flawlessly, and the astronauts made it home safely.

8. The Kennedy Connection

Official brand ambassadors aside, Omega has proven a favorite of many world leaders and celebrities. Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev was often photographed wearing his gold Constellation Manhattan. In the aforementioned 1995 film My Fellow Americans, Jack Lemmon plays a former American President. At one point, Lemmon comments on his watch, saying “That’s a Constellation. It was given to me by Gorbachev!”

Pope John Paul II wore an Omega De Ville “Classic.” Elvis Presley was photographed wearing an Omega while in the service, stationed in Germany. Buddy Holly was wearing his white gold ultra-thin Omega when his plane crashed in February, 1959. Ringo Starr wore an Omega Constellation performing on stage with The Beatles.

One of the most famous owners was John F. Kennedy, who wore an Omega at his inauguration as America’s 35th president in January, 1961. The watch had been presented to Kennedy by a friend before the election. The back of the watch bears the inscription “President of the United States John F. Kennedy from his friend Grant.” Today, the watch is housed at the Omega Museum.

9. The Co-Axial Escapement

As we have seen, from its early days, Omega has pursued precision timekeeping. One of the holy grails in this area is a very low-friction escapement. So it is no surprise that when renowned English watchmaker George Daniels developed his now-famous co-axial escapement, Omega would take up the challenge of putting it into large-scale production. Those efforts culminated with the 1999 launch of the Omega Co-Axial Caliber 2500. Omega touted the mechanism as the first practical new watch escapement to be invented in 250 years.

In 2007, Omega launched its proprietary Co-Axial Caliber 8500, citing the escapement’s low friction, mechanical efficiency, and timekeeping performance. The escapement is used in conjunction with a free-sprung balance, the preferred approach for fine watch movements. Omega’s confidence in the Co-Axial is such that every watch delivered with it is a COSC-certified chronometer, and it comes with a four-year warranty.

This image highlights the Co-Axial escapement components.

10. Conquering Magnetism

In 2013, Omega announced the creation of the world’s first movement that is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss, far exceeding the levels of magnetic resistance achieved by any previous movement. Most anti-magnetic watches utilize a soft iron inner case which distributes electromagnetism in such a way that it cancels the effect on the movement. Omega’s approach was to design a movement in which the critical components are fashioned from non-ferrous materials, eliminating the need for an inner case and providing a far greater resistance to magnetic fields. Omega’s approach has the added benefits of allowing a date window on the dial, and a display back. Watches with inner cases can’t offer these attributes because each requires an opening in the inner case. At Baselworld 2015, Omega introduced its own “Master Chronometer” movement, which incorporated its pioneering antimagnetic technology, inside an all-new watch model, the Omega Globemaster. The brand has since gone on to outfit many other models with Master Chronometer movements, including an entirely new line of Seamaster Planet Ocean models in 2016.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Flyback Review – PAM212

It has been awhile since I have done a review. The PAM212 is my third Panerai, behind the PAM005 Base, and the newer PAM312. Originally, I purchased the PAM312 to be my everyday watch, only to find it not what I wanted out of a Panerai. I then picked up this PAM212 used, but got off to a bumpy start. The seller did not actually describe the dings and crystal AR damage very well. And it was just these niggly things that did not sit well, so it was sent to Panerai in Texas for a new crystal, which turned into several other “suggested” services. Long story short, I received it back with a new crystal, new gaskets throughout, and complete refinish. It is truly a stunner now.

I will try to offer as much useful information as possible and keep my personal opinion to a minimum, although I sure it will sneak in.

I will assume most know the history of Panerai so I will not try to cover an already heavily covered topic.

On to the review:

The Case:

The 44mm case is, as the name indicates an homage to the Panerai Cases of the 1950’s versus the square style cases of the current Luminor line. The 212 has beautifully flowing lines, and viewing it from the side, is reminiscent of looking at the profile of the hull of a boat.

On the wrist, the case is very, very comfortable. The shape of the caseback rounds outward slightly from the movement allowing thecase body and to a lesser degree the crown guard and chronograph pushers to sit up off the wrist and not dig into the wrist. There are so many angles at work with this case, from the downward sloping case edges, to the rounded case body. All the lines work to draw the eye onward over the case. The downward sloped case edges flow right into the case lugs. And although the case lugs appear to come to a point, they do not dig in the wrist at any point. The hull like shape of the case body also contrasts nicely against the lugs. Despite the case size, it does fit nicely under a shirt cuff.

The mix of the bushed finish of the case contrasts nicely with the high polish of the bezel, and caseback. This is also when Panerai switched from the square chronograph pushers to the round button style. This particular model was before the introduction of the quick-change strap system, and has the screw in lug bars. Personally, for this particular watch I wanted the screw in lug bars because it completed the heritage of the piece for me.

Without getting into too much of the Panerai history; Panerai had always used movements from a supplier. I appreciated the 1950 case design, it housed an upgraded ETA 7750, and I felt to complete this, for me the screw in lug bars were the final touch. I say this knowing it is only my personal opinion. However, in the later models, the quick-change strap system was introduced and is available.

The case is 44mm wide without crown guard and pushers, 53mm tall, and 17mm thick and offers 150 meters water resistance.

The Bezel:

The Bezel is a very nice high polish. Here I appreciated that the Tachymeter was not printed on the Bezel, but rather was placed safely inside as the chapter ring above the dial. I have found that the Bezel inevitably picks up the occasional ding, no matter how careful one is, and can quickly detract from the usefulness and readability of the Tachymeter scale, if printed on the Bezel.

The Dial and Hands:

The dial is a very attractive matte black, the numbers and indices contrast well with the green of the Luminova. In addition to the Tachymeter, mentioned above in the Bezel section, the minute track is also printed on the outer edge of the dial. The second’s sub dial and the 30-minute chronograph counter are also lumed. However, the lack of a date on the 212’s dial is what I appreciate the most. It leaves the dial uncluttered in my personal opinion. The dial appears slightly smaller than the dial of the PAM005.


The Crystal:

The crystal on the top is a very thick and very domed Sapphire with Anti Reflective coating. The shape of the crystal is also an homage to the 1950’s Panerai design. Just another, in a long list of details that pay tribute to original Panerai designs.

On the back to display the movement is also a sapphire crystal.


The Lume:

The sausage style dial provides plenty of glow. Although not as much as a PAM005 simply because of the amount of lume. The numbers and indices are thinner than on the base model dials. Again, it is a Panerai, so you will not be disappointed with the Lume.

The Movement:

Inside is a highly decorated, and modified ETA 7750 Chronograph that is COSC Certified. I know many have looked down on the ETA 7750being put into a “Luxury” watch, but the fact remains that the Valjoux and the ETA 7750 is, and remains a workhorse of a movement.

And although you can find 7750’s offered in many watches, very few are as finely finished, and modified as this. The off the self ETA 7750comes with 28 Jewels, the Panerai version comes in at 30 Jewels. They even Jeweled the Chronograph Minute Counter Wheel. The Balance Wheel and hairspring have been upgraded.

In addition to the finishing, this movement has had the Flyback function added. The Flyback function allows you to start the chronograph, and then at any point during the timed event to reset and restart the chronograph from 0 with one push of the reset button.

On the wrist, it runs at +2 seconds a day. The power reserve is well over the stated power reserve of 42 hours, and closer to 48.

The Chronograph Function:

The chronograph works very well and crisply. The depression of the start/stop pushers or reset pushers offers the right amount of resistance and produces a satisfying click. Reset of the chronograph is very smooth, as is the reset of the flyback function.


The Strap(s):

The straps, this may be one of the single best features of a Panerai, all the strap options available. Out of the box, the PAM 212 comes with a grayish leather carbon fiber style strap on a deployant clasp, and the second strap is the Panerai rubber strap. Personally, I think the PAM212 works very well on the new style Submersible Rubber strap on a Panerai Tang Buckle. Whichever strap you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On
After learning the excessively long name of this great new watch from Audemars Piguet, I began to wonder what Arnold might sound like pronouncing it. The gUBERnator is back in public life now, but his time as California governor never stopped his passion for watches. 
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On

 

Audemars Piguet and Arnold Schwarzenegger don’t have an official relationship, but AP has made a few limited edition watches for him, including the popular T3 and End of Days watches. Both sold out rather quick. But those two watches don’t wholly define that Austrio-Swiss love affair. It goes deeper… To celebrate the man-watch love Audemars and Arnold shared, AP will release a new limited edition of 1,500 watch set called “The Legacy.” As I mentioned, the full name of the watch will be the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy watch – and it is a beautiful thing. It is also rather massive at 48mm wide.

 

The Legacy actually represents three important things from a design perspective. I will get to that in a moment. I did want to mention that the proceeds of each of the 1,500 watches (profit after costs) will go to Arnold’s “After School All-Stars” charity foundation. The first thing the watch represents are design cues from each of the previous AP for Arnold watches. What comes to mind first are the hour indicators, side treatments, and of course the size.

2011 is really about design subduction and certain key materials. AP lead designer Octavio Garcia kept his promise to me that 2011 would see wild design take a back seat to more simple, timeless designs. We wasn’t kidding. 2011 was like a 180 degree turn from the famous Royal Oak Offshore Grand Prix watch from 2010. As such, the designs focus more on key lines and features, and less about wild details. It is an interesting look, and I think they feel right for the times. AP is still able to have the watches look very much Royal Oak Offshore, and also still look totally modern.

As for materials, The Legacy contains those materials the brand is most serious about this year. Those are ceramic, titanium, and gold. I don’t care what AP says, this watch is bigger than 48mm wide. But that is the official number. Just look at it on my wrist (officially with the implements the case is closer to 55mm wide). The case is also very long from lug to lug. What I love is that the case is made from black ceramic. The ceramic has been finished using some fancy techniques to give it delicately brushed and polished surfaces. The bezel is also ceramic, with elements of titanium screwed on to the side of the case, and used for the caseback, and screws. Last, there is rose gold use for the pushers and part of the crown, as well as for the hour indicators on the dial and the hands. Oh, and the majority of the crown is ceramic. The watch looks awesome, and the detailing is superb.

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On

 

Some of the details are neat. One of them is the use of the mega tappiserie texture on the chronograph pusher as well as the dial. I also really like the diamond polishing of the surface of the gold Arabic numeral hour indicators that give them a rainbow color shine. Hints of red on the dial mix with all the colors nicely. This feels like a luxury military watch in essence. The watch mixes black, great, gold, green, and red together. The green is subtle, and is mixed with black and gray. You’ll find it on the fabric strap that I am told is Kevlar. Don’t quote me on this or trying anything funny, but the strap might actually be bullet proof.

【A traveller’s twin-set 】Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT PAM 628 and PAM 657

【A traveller’s twin-set 】Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT PAM 628 and PAM 657

Panerai Radiomir 1940 GMT PAM 628 with hobnail dial and PAM 657 with vertical stripe

PAM 628 and PAM 657

Over the last few years, Panerai has gone to a lot of effort to evolve their offering. The foundation pieces are still there – aggressively simple dive watches that make little effort to belie their military origins, but these days the brand has so much more to offer, from hi-tech tourbillons to slender dress options. These two GMTs, released last year, are the kind of watches that bridge old and new. They’re undeniably Panerai, with the large 45mm Radiomir 1940 case and instantly recognisable combination of super-stylised Arabics and hash marks, but look closer and the changes are obvious too. The dial, for starters. No longer a simple matt sandwich, Panerai has added texture to the mix, with subtle Clous de Paris and vertical stripe finishes to keep things interesting. Likewise, the iconic luminous sandwich construction hasn’t been used here, with the ecru-coloured luminous material applied in the more traditional manner.

PAM 628

As you can see, both these watches display a second time zone via the slender, arrow-tipped hand. This is a 12-hour hand, which is convenient for reading the second time at a glance, but less so if you have problems remembering if it’s day or night in that time zone. Luckily there’s a 24 hour or AM/PM indicator on the dial as well, sitting inconspicuously under the small second hand. PAM 628 adds a power reserve indicator to the mix, and both versions have neatly done date windows at three.

PAM 657

The watches are powered by the robust P.4002 (on the PAM 628) and P.4001 (on the PAM 657). The latter also offers a power reserve indicator but keeps it out of sight on the case back. These movements are a far cry from the Unitasébauches that used to be the brand’s stock in trade. Not only do they look pretty – and offer a quite sophisticated micro-rotor – but the GMT can be adjusted without interrupting the timekeeping, and if you change the time, the second hand automatically hacks to zero, allowing for easy time-syncing.

The P.4001 of PAM 657

The genuinely useful complication and functionality, combined with the subtle evolution of Panerai’s timeless style mean both of these Radiomir 1940s will always look the part, no matter where you travel.

What’s Old is New Again: Watches with Bronze Cases

This is an era of offbeat, heretofore-unheard-of case materials like forged carbon, tantalum, alusic, titanium ceramic and even something called “Texalium” (aluminum-coated carbon fiber).  But one “new” case material has been around so long it has a prehistoric age named after it: bronze. In recent years, brands including IWC, Panerai, Zenith, Squale, U-Boat,Anonimo and Bulgari have introduced bronze watches. Most are divers’ watches or have a nautical theme; for them, bronze, used for centuries to make ship fittings and seafaring equipment, is a way to underline their maritime identity. In other watches, bronze is used simply for its appearance: the metal has a vintage-like matte patina, which differs from watch to watch and hence makes each watch unique. Here’s a look at this time-honored metal.
Alloys that contain at least 60 percent copper can be called “bronze,” but the term usually refers to alloys that are made from a mixture of copper and tin. Pure copper is relatively soft and dents easily while tin is brittle and breaks. But when combined, the resulting alloy resists wear, retains its shape and is antimagnetic. And its most outstanding property is its ability to resist corrosion in seawater.

Bronze is somewhat more brittle than stainless steel and weighs about 10 percent more. It reacts with oxygen, which results in a distinctive patina. This coating, which is oxidized copper, protects the underlying material against corrosion but leaves all other characteristics unchanged.
Among the various mixtures of copper and tin, experts distinguish between wrought or worked alloys, which include as much as 9 percent tin, and cast alloys, which usually contain between 9 and 12 percent tin. Bronzes that contain 20 percent tin are called “bell bronze.”
But bronzes are seldom made of just copper and tin; adding other materials creates alloys with tailor-made properties. Phosphorus and zinc are usually added to alloys that are wrought; these two substances as well as lead, nickel and iron are added to cast alloys. These blends are known as “multi-alloy bronzes.” If alloys contain little or no tin, they’re called “special bronzes.” The copper-aluminum blend used by the watch brand Anonimo is in this category. When a material other than tin is added to copper, the resulting alloy is named for the additional substance, i.e., “aluminum bronze,” “lead bronze,” “phosphorus bronze,” etc. Manufacturers use different alloys to create each brand’s distinctive nuances of color.

Anonimo uses an aluminum bronze alloy.
Aluminum bronze is a golden yellow alloy that can be cast and wrought. It usually contains between 9 and 14 percent aluminum. Iron, manganese and nickel are often added to aluminum bronze. Anonimo uses a type of aluminum bronze that contains 84 percent copper and 11.5 percent aluminum, in addition to smaller quantities of nickel, manganese, iron, zinc, tin and lead. A very thin exterior film of aluminum results in this alloy’s extremely high resistance to saltwater. Anonimo has used aluminum bronze since 1997. Each series that Anonimo offers includes at least one model with a bronze case.

Panerai relies on the bimetallic alloy CuSn8 for its bronze cases, which it has used for two limited-edition watches. CuSn8 contains 92 percent copper and 8 percent tin. Ickler, a case manufacturer based in Pforzheim, Germany, also uses this bronze alloy for the cases of its Archimede pilots’ watches. Archimede has three bronze-cased models in its standard collection.
The first of Panerai’s bronze limited editions debuted in 2011. The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo (read about it here) has a sea-green dial to underline the brand’s history as a supplier of dive watches and other diving instruments. Panerai equipped frogmen in the Italian Navy with dive watches 80-odd years ago. A limited-edition Luminor Submersible with a bronze case and a power-reserve display on its dial was unveiled in 2013. Both watches are now available only on the secondary market.

Both the bezel and case are made of bronze.

 

A green dial underscores Panerai’s affiliation with the ocean.
The case of Gérald Genta’s Gefica, launched in 1988, was made of a bronze alloy containing more than 90 percent copper. It is said to be the first bronze luxury watch. Genta supposedly designed the watch at the request of a big-game hunter, who wanted a watch with a matte finish that would not frighten away prey by reflecting sunlight. (Bulgari bought the Gérald Genta brand in 2000 and in 2007 brought out an updated version of the Gefica, also in bronze: the Gefica BiRetro Safari.)
Archimede began making bronze watches in 2013. Like Gérald Genta, it chose the metal for its matte patina, and uses it not only for the cases and crowns but also for the rivets on the leather straps. The watches’ casebacks are steel.

【Watch review again】PANERAI LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS

PANERAI LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS (PAM00526)

001.jpg

I am often attracted to watches which confer functions I am seldom likely to use. For example, I adore diver’s watches, yet rarely venture into deep waters. Furthermore, I have purchased watches which feature the marque of a particular prestigious car company, even though I don’t own said car. 

Ultimately, I suspect I am not alone. It is invariably the aesthetics of a watch that results in my cooing as I stand over a handsome horological creation. I become besotted with subtle design details, illustrated by a cradling hand resting on a beautiful form.  

002.jpg

The raison d’être for this particular model is to assist a competitive crew member in their pursuit of regatta glory.

Officine Panerai has a long association with the sea, harking back to the days it supplied the Royal Italian Navy with its über masculine Radiomir divers watches in 1936. This particular model features some ingenious functions which make it a must have for any team member vying for racing glory. However, do you really need a yacht to justify the purchase of this generously sized timepiece?

The dial

The first notable aspect of the dial is the sheer scale of the black canvas on which the functions are presented. It is huge, thanks to the generous case diameter of 47 mm. By default, this grants a large area to display the numerous functions mentioned on the watch’s specification sheet. The resultant dial display is highly legible with each constituent part having sufficient space to breathe, nothing feels crammed.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Hour and minute hands are unfussy, lined with luminescent material and impart time with refreshing brevity.

A sandwich dial echt Panerai is a detail that will win favour with fans of the Swiss-Italian brand, myself included. The two layered construction accords a delicious depth to the dial that evokes a sense of discernible quality. Arabic numerals, in a modern font, feature at 6 o’clock and noon, whereas other hours are marked with simple batons. Panerai ownership invariably delivers nocturnal legibility par excellence and the PAM 526 proves to be no exception. The dial has a fantastic luminescence, featuring a delightful green emission. 

A small seconds display features at 9 o’clock, in common with several non-chronograph models in the Panerai catalogue, together with a 12-hour chronograph register positioned at 3 o’clock. The two subdials share the same proportion and deliver a balance to the dial which is very agreeable. 

Two central chronograph hands feature on the dial. The blue hand is a central chronograph seconds hand, whereas the orange hand is a central chronograph minutes hand. It is the latter which provides a fascinating point of differentiation. 

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Prior to a regatta commencing, the yachts have to assemble for the start and a warning, typically five minutes prior to the commencement of a race, is made using flags and an audible signal. The wearer of the PAM 526 can press the orange push-piece, at 4 o’clock, to advance the orange chronograph minutes hand counter-clockwise into the “start” area, indicated on the dial and flange. 

003.jpg

The two chronograph hands begin counting down to zero and then continue thereafter once the race has commenced. 

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

A minute rail encircling the dial aids ease of read-off. The inner flange, as well as carrying the countdown scale, shows values up to 15 minutes before the start of the race. Moreover, it also features a tachymeter scale calibrated for knots, ideal for determining the speed of a yacht over a defined distance. 

It all sounds very complicated, however, a few minutes of familiarisation soon reveals the watch to be very simple to use. 

004.jpg

The start / stop chronograph button is positioned at 10 o’clock. The reset button is positioned at 8 o’clock. This is a flyback chronograph allowing the wearer to press the reset button whilst the stop-watch is in operation. This causes the chronograph hands to stop, reset and start in one simple action, proving useful for timing consecutive events.

The case

As the nomen implies the case is constructed of titanium with a brushed finish. I wouldn’t describe the watch as a featherweight, but the use of titanium does ensure it is not unduly heavy. Indeed, I think Panerai have judged the mass to perfection. On one hand there is an agreeable feeling of substance. Conversely, there is no requirement to be an adonis when wearing the Panerai. 

005.jpg

Whilst the size of this timepiece may polarise opinion, perhaps even alienating those people of diminutive stature, I personally fell under its bewitching spell. 

The PAM00526, sat comfortably on my wrist and I did not find the push pieces, or crown with its iconic protection device, inhibit free movement of my left hand. Moreover, there were no annoying red marks caused from chafing. One reason for the comfortable fit is the rubber strap. It has a ribbed profile and envelopes the wrist uniting the wearer and timepiece perfectly. 

006.jpg

Panerai has fitted an exhibition case back to the PAM00526, allowing the wearer to admire the brand’s in-house P.9100/R movement. 

The movement

The impressive P.9100/R calibre is an evolution of Panerai’s P.9100 automatic calibre and is currently only used in the Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio. 

007.jpg

The column-wheel chronograph will undoubtedly attract purists with its no compromise creation, visible via the exhibition case back. 

Twin spring barrels provide an impressive power reserve of 3 days. 

The movement comprises of 328 parts, reaffirming that Panerai has not sought production expedience when creating the P.9100/R calibre. However, it is the exalted creation of the movement which causes me to voice a minor criticism.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Panerai has fitted large bridges to the movement which deny the wearer the sight of the components beneath. Whilst I accept it provides a tidy appearance to the movement, it prevents inquisitive eyes the opportunity to savour more of the micro-mechanics within. Moreover, with only a small circular aperture revealing the column-wheel, the wearer is denied the wonderful spectacle of the lateral coupling interfacing with the six pillars of the castellated wheel. It is a shame, because it feels that some of the virtue of the movement specification is not being adequately shared with its owner. 

Nevertheless, that is really my only criticism of the PAM00526 and, in all honesty, would not dissuade me from considering the timepiece for my own collection.

【Watch review again】 Panerai PAM745 Limited Edition Blue Dial Luminor


Panerai PAM745 Harrods Limited Edition Blue Dial Luminor Marina

Last year we were all amazed with a beautiful green dialed PAM693 Limited Edition created exclusively for Harrods. Fast forward to this past month where Harrods announced their second Limited edition in collaboration with Officine Panerai. The latest edition to their Limited Edition collection is the PAM745 Luminor Marina Titanium.

This Limited Edition watch features a 44m titanium case which houses a beautiful deep blue dial with full Arabic numerals around. They opted to go with gold hands which contrast nicely against the blue dial. It features the date at the 3 o’clock position while a sub second dial is on the opposite 9 o’clock side. The layout is very much like the classic PAM359 that has been a staple in the Panerai family.

The PAM745 is draped nicely with a matching titanium bracelet with a deployant clasp. As an added bonus they have a matching blue leather strap with a titanium buckle as well as the first ever colorized Panerai Rubber strap in blue for a change of pace.

Giving life to this piece is the workhorse P.9000 in-house automatic movement with a 72hour power reserve. You can view the movement through the sapphire crystal case back. The PAM745 is water resistant up to 30 bars or 300 meters. Since it is using the older P.9000, the watch has the more originally thick Luminor Marina 1950’s case as opposed to the new versions that you are seeing with the PAM1359or PAM1312 for example. Those use the new P.9010 movement which is a slimmer version of this particular movement allowing Panerai to slim down the overall case thickness. Thankfully the case and bracelet is made out of titanium or this beast of a watch would have really had some serious weight to it.

For above type, we have same type in stock, the price is favorable , if you are interested in , please feel free to contact us, you will have a pleasant surprise.

Do you know where the name of “Rolex” come grom?

Here’s where the name ‘Rolex’ really came from

Rolex


Does the name ‘Rolex’ actually mean anything?

Rolex is a storied brand — one of, if not
the most notable in the watchmaking world.

So it’s surprising how relatively little there is to know about the beginnings of the 100-plus-year-old brand. Even something as simple as where its name came from is shrouded in mystery.

Rolex, for its official brand story, plays it pretty simple. According the brand’s official website, founder Hans Wilsdorf wanted his new brand of watches to have a short name that could be said in any language.

Most importantly, he wanted something that looked good on the watches themselves, and that was symmetrical in capital letters.

“I tried combining the letters of the alphabet in every possible way,” Wilsdorf supposedly said, according to Rolex. “This gave me some hundred names, but none of them felt quite right. One morning, while riding on the upper deck of a horse-drawn omnibus along Cheapside in the City of London, a genie whispered ‘Rolex’ in my ear.”

Rolex watch

If that seems incomplete to you, you’re not alone. Adding a bit of colour to the story is an essay in NYU’s Stern Business School newsletter, written by adjunct professor of management David Liebeskind, who claims that Wilsdorf also thought “Rolex” seemed like an onomatopoeia of a watch ticking.

So, basically it doesn’t really mean anything. (Some have suggested that it’s short for “horological excellence,” but there’s no proof that Wilsdorf ever claimed that.)

It also hides the brand’s English roots, as the brand began in London in 1908 and moved to Geneva, Switzerland, in 1919.

【Watch comparation】Top 8 Panerai watches

Top 8 Panerai watchesAfter you have decided on Buying First Panerai watch, it comes natural that you want to see what are other options you can have. I have decided to highlight top 8 Panerai watches that should be considered as the next PAM in your (ever growing) collection. I will exclude vintage and discontinued Panerai models to focus on pieces that you can acquire today through an authorised dealer. I have also excluded special edition models which are really hard to get. For sure, there are some incredible older models that you might like to own, but we’ll stick to current models today. We’ll take a look at some typically PANERAI pieces as well as some PAM models that offer something really different. Are you ready? Let’s dig in!

PAM351 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio 44mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM351

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM351

It is very likely (if you read previous article: Buying first Panerai watch) that your first Panerai watch was a nice, basic PAM111 or PAM112. So, perhaps it is time to look for a Panerai Luminor 1950, which has a larger, cushion-shaped case giving immense presence on the wrist. The PAM351 uses a much more sophisticated in-house Caliber P.9000 movement, which offers a full 3 days of power reserve. There is no quick-change system for the date — the hour can be advanced, or reversed, independently of the minute and the date changes accordingly. This is so very cool and useful for time zone changes etc. The PAM351 is quite unusual because it has a tobacco coloured dial and, get this, a TITANIUM case! Ba-boom! Of all of the timepieces I have ever strapped to my wrist, the PAM351 is probably one of the absolute best. If you show up to a cocktail wearing a nice, light blue suit, and a nice titanium PAM351… What else should I say? What the PAM351 does for collection is to present Panerai as not only a cool a historic novelty, but also as a real serious example of high end watchmaking. It has a stunning case design, a fairly typical Luminor Marina dial, high end materials and unusual colours.

PAM112 Luminor Base Acciaio 44mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM112

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM112

If you have already read article “Buying First Panerai watch”, you are aware that this is one of the base models. In other words, this is a must-have. This is the most iconic Panerai and definitely the one to have. The ‘base’ dial has two hands, 4 cardinal numerals and no seconds hand. This gives a gorgeous, simple, clean and typically Panerai look. The PAM112 also has a sandwich dial, which is such an important feature for a PAM. A sandwich dial has two layers — the bottom layer is the luminous stuff and the top layer has the numerals cut out, exposing the lume underneath. The PAM112 has an exhibition caseback, exposing Panerai’s manually wound OP X Caliber movement. Now, this movement is based on the workhorse ETA Unitas movement and is not, technically, in-house. What watch snobs won’t get, is spending thousands of dollars on a Unitas movement when you can buy one in a $600 watch. My response? First of all, THIS version of the Unitas is HIGHLY modified by Panerai and made to the absolute highest levels of quality. It is simple, solid, reliable, easy to service and quite accurate. It is also somewhat true to Panerai history. The very earliest Panerai watches used Rolex pocket watch movements. So the idea of taking a big pocket watch movement (such as the Unitas) and sticking it inside a Panerai case is quite authentic and gives the PAM112 a traditional Panerai feel. The bad news is that Panerai are phasing out these movements in favour of new in-house movements such as P.5000. More on that later. But soon, you won’t be able to find a new PAM112.

Now, we cannot really mention the PAM112 without mentioning the PAM111, which is basically the same watch except that it has a Luminor Marina dial (read more on Panerai Luminor PAM000 vs PAM112). The difference is that a Luminor Marina has a small seconds hand. I much prefer the base dial, but in real life, the seconds hand is extremely useful. I use it to track the accuracy of the watch and also to time steaks on the Barbecue.

If your first Panerai was not a PAM112 or a PAM111, then one of these two pieces must be at the top of your list for PAM watches. The biggest mistake I ever made as a collector was NOT buying a PAM112 when I had one in my hands at my local authorised dealer. I have regretted it ever since.

PAM560 Luminor BASE 8 Days Acciaio 44mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM560

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM560

So the PAM560 is really the eventual replacement for the previously mentioned PAM112. It has a 44mm case, which I believe has been refined a bit. It has a base dial, a sandwich dials and an exhibition caseback showing off the P.5000 movement. The manually wound P.5000 offers and incredible 8 days of power reserve. You see, the PAM560 offers all of the typical Panerai character while upping its watchmaking credibility with an in-house movement that you only need to wind once per week. This would be great choice for anyone who likes to wear a different piece every day. You could wind a PAM560 on Monday and wear it, not wear it until Thursday, wear something else on Friday, and the PAM560 is still ticking on Saturday and good for the whole weekend. Awesome! And the best part is that gorgeous, simple, clean, obviously PANERAI look. And if you want a Marina dial, you have the PAM510. There is a even a PAM562, which is a base dial with titanium case!

PAM524 Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio 44mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM524

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM524

This is something a bit different. The PAM524 succeeds in delivering a flyback chronograph complication while still retaining a very typical Panerai flavour. It also has a ‘dirty dial’ where the lume is a sandy-brown, faux patina colour. I just love the dirty dial and you can combine it with all sorts of straps if the stitching matches the lume. Then you get superb colour combos. Being a 44mm Luminor 1950, the PAM524 has wrist presence galore. If your first PAM was a base model, then this PAM524 could be a great potential addition.

PAM533 Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Acciaio 44mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM533

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM533

While we are on the topic of dirty dials and complications, we MUST consider the PAM533. Once again, you get a 44mm Luminor 1950 case with a dirty dial. But check out the complications. The PAM533 uses Caliber P.2003, which is an automatic piece using 296 components!! It has a linear power reserve indicator to measure its 10 days of power reserve. It has a GMT function, an AM/PM indicator and… a seconds reset function! This is just killer — it is so useful for setting and synchronising time. The PAM533 shows the date also. I love how the P.2003 packs so much into its movement. The PAM533 is for the Paneristi who really wants a ton of mechanical engineering going on on his wrist. And if you would love all these features in a stealthy blacked out piece, Panerai offers PAM335 in ceramic. Wow!

PAM422 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Acciaio 47mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM422

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM422

I recently reviewed the PAM422 and declared it to be the ultimate timepiece on Earth. I have not changed my opinion! In 47mm, the PAM422 just demands attention. Its very sophisticated and refined case means that it wears well – even with dress shirts. But it really is a show-stopper. Manually wound is the way to go for me, and the PAM422 does this with 3 days of power reserve. The coolest feature? A power reserve indicator… on the back! Yes! The PAM422 offers my favourite complication of all while cleverly placing it on the back so as not to ruin the clean dial. To me, the PAM422 is the MOST Panerai of all Panerai. It combines all of the key traditional Panerai features with size and real high end watchmaking. This really is the ultimate.

PAM183 Radiomir Black Seal Acciaio 45mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM183

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM183

Let’s get back to basics for a minute. Here, we are looking at OP XI Caliber, which is another version of that no-frills manually wound movement. It is basic and robust. The PAM183 has a simple Marina dial with a sandwich dial, of course. The Radiomir are always a bit more elegant and ‘vintage’ than the Luminor. If you already have a Luminor, then why not consider a Radiomir? After all, the Radiomir-type case was the very first case that Panerai used. I love the 45mm Radiomir models, but the worst part is that it is much more difficult to change their straps. With a Luminor 1950, there is a quick-change system which allows you to swatch straps in (literally) less than 1 minute. You can change the strap on a PAM183 yourself, but it’s much more tedious. Nevertheless, I looked at a PAM183 at my local dealer recently and it took my breath away – it is really that beautiful.

PAM372 Luminor 1950 47mm

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM372

Top 8 Panerai watches PAM372

Last, but not the least, we have to look at the PAM372. Just look at it, and then tell me your impressions. It’s simple and basic, right? It’s huge. And it oozes Panerai DNA. Made as a real homage to vintage Panerai timepieces, the PAM372 doesn’t even use sapphire crystal. It uses Plexiglass! This was done to give an authentic vintage feel. The PAM372 uses sapphire on its exhibition caseback, however, which shows off the in-house Caliber P.3000 movement. This manually wound movement offers 3 days of power reserve. The PAM372 is an absolute brute on the wrist and, like the PAM422, seems to express everything Panerai. For this reason, the PAM372 is among my favourite timepieces in the world. I came close to acquiring a PAM372 once and often regret not doing it. I feel like a PAM372 would represent a real milestone in my collection as it is such an icon. Whenever I mention the PAM422 as the ultimate timepiece, I consider the PAM372 with its (nicer) base dial. The PAM372 does not have that cool power reserve indicator, though. But what a masterpiece.

Top 8 Panerai watches

So there you have it. I hope this blog has given you some ideas for your next PAM. I am on my third PAM already and I am always looking for the next one. So don’t pretend you can be content with just one PAM. As always, the fun is in the search…

Why every guy absolutely needs to wear a watch every single day

A lamentable shift has happened in the last few decades: Watches have all but disappeared from men’s wrists.

81.jpg

Once upon a time, a watch was a necessity, something men and women put on their wrists every morning and took off only at night before bed. It was a necessity, or else you wouldn’t know the time of day and you’d be late for all of your meetings.

82.jpg

As cellphones and later smartphones started becoming more common, the watch suddenly seemed old-fashioned.

Who needs a watch when you can just pull your phone out to check the time on a sleek digital display? Millennials probably never even got into the habit of wearing a watch, and for men, that’s a shame.

A watch is the only accessory that a man can truly wear every day.  You can build a collection, swap them out for different outfits, change straps to suit the occasion, and find one that’s perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle.

83.jpg

It’s your own signature piece — something that you wear so often that people end up identifying it with you. Even a smartwatch is better than no watch — though, depending on the model, it will send its own unique message.

When you don’t wear a watch, you’re missing out on that opportunity.

On days I forget my watch, my outfit feels incomplete, like it’s missing something. A watch can really tie it all together.

Now, I’m no technological skeptic — I love my iPhone 6, I’m addicted to Spotify, and for me, Snapchat is less a social network than a hobby.

Still, a watch on the wrist holds tangible benefits for the wearer that go beyond telling the time. In fact, I rarely find myself looking down at my watch to actually find out what time it is.

84.jpg

A watch symbolizes time much more than a smartphone does. More to the point, it reminds you that time is constantly moving and slipping away — so you better get living and doing all those things you’re planning. A smartphone just doesn’t call this to mind in such an immediate or tangible way.

Those hour, minute, and second hands are not going to stop moving. Neither should you.

Rolex GMT Master II Review Of An Ultimate Tool Watch

Rolex GMT Master II Review Of An Ultimate Tool Watch

01.jpg

Rolex GMT Master II 16710 with Red-Blue bezel insert

The Rolex GMT Master II review details a long history that makes it one of the very definitions of a tool watch. The Rolex GMT-Master was designed for international travel crossing time zones. Pilots could now read 24 hour time to note in their flight log books. In fact, in 1954, Rolex designed the the original GMT for Pan-Am. It had a gilt dial, no crown guards and a Bakelite bezel insert. Legend has it that the black faced GMT’s were for pilots, and a white faced version was for office-based executives.

02.jpg

Rolex GMT from 1954

The most prevalent GMT Master II model is the 16710. Though, this model was replaced by the ceramic bezeled 116710. However, you can find the 16710 model at BeckerTime’s used Rolex GMT Master II, as well as the pre-owned Rolex market. The GMT Master II 16710 has evolved from the original 6542 and 1675 GMT Master with multiple features and improvements added. The model 1675 was the first to move from Bakelite bezel inserts that were fragile, to aluminum inserts. The original 1675 came with a blue-red insert indicating AM and PM as well as matching Pan-Am color scheme. Later, the 16750 came with a quickset hour hand. Also, for a few years came the 16760 “Fat Lady” because of its larger case. The 16760 was the first GMT with a sapphire crystal, red-black bezel insert, and independently adjustable hour hand so the user can track three time zones.

Similar to the Submariner

This Rolex GMT Master II review describes many appealing aspects to the Rolex GMT Master II 16710. This model uses a similar case as its brother the Submariner. The case is 904L stainless steel and the bracelet the more industry standard 314L stainless. 904L helps prevent corrosion that sometimes occurs on the caseback threads from sweat and sea water. Unlike the Submariner, the GMT utilizes a thinner caseback and Twinloc crown. Both of these differences make the GMT water resistant only to 100 meters. 100 meter water resistance is plenty durable for recreational swimming, snorkeling, and water activities that pilots would do.

The other appealing feature of the Rolex GMT Master II is the ability to track two time zones. It is easy to track another time zone by using the 24 hour hand set to UTC or Greenwich time, and the rotating bezel. The independently adjustable 12-hour hand make it easy to change local time when traveling among time zones. The numbers on the bezel insert, combined with the SuperLuminova covered dial dots and Mercedes hands make the Rolex GMT one of the more legible watch faces.

The Rolex GMT Master II 16710 is available with an Oyster bracelet and Oysterlock bracelet clasp. Earlier models were also available with a DateJust style clasp and Jubilee style bracelet, bridging the tool watch with a dress watch.

This Rolex GMT Master II review points out that no one can go wrong with a GMT Master II because of its ease in wearing it, its provenance and history, and its functionality.

Watch Review | Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days – PAM561

Watch Review | Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days – PAM561

From a strictly military perspective, wearing a white dial dive watch on a mission would possibly cause your fellow commando soldiers to smack you in the back of the head. But what the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 lacks in historical accuracy and stealth capabilities it makes up for by being one of the more affordable, in-house-movement-equipped and refreshing-looking alternatives in a sea of boring black and blue dial watches.

Panerai may be a brand of only a handful of – admittedly very similar – collections, yet it still is one among few that have an almost unearthly power in bringing their first-time customer back for another model… and then another, and another, and so on. As such, I don’t think that the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is a typical “first Panerai” – for that, check out our Cost of Entry article on the most affordable Panerai you can buy.

I picked the PAM561 specifically because I wanted to review a Panerai that isn’t an obvious choice but something one might actually end up considering after looking at the current production line-up of the brand. Clad in a 44mm-wide Luminor case, it is a simple, legible, and among Panerai watches, competitively priced offering that also packs a more unusual hand-wound, in-house-made movement with an 8-day power reserve.

Dial & Legibility (& My Only Gripe)
The dial is more unusual not just in its color but also in its markings, with Arabic numerals all around (unlike your more typical Panerai dials that only have numerals for 12, 3, 6, and 9 with baton markers everywhere else) plus an additional and, again, rarer 60-minute track on the periphery. The numerals are not lumed, only the hands and the pips on the periphery of the dial are. All of these are painted on the dial’s surface as the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 has a solid dial rather than the famed Panerai sandwich dial.

Sandwich dials are fun and all, but your first Panerai more than likely had that already, and the PAM561 is more like your second or third in the line, as I mentioned above, where you do want something new in the subtleties that render one Panerai different from another. The prominent “8 DAYS” marking above six o’clock refers to the P.5000 in-house caliber – but before we move on to that, just one more word (and my only gripe with the PAM561) on legibility.

The black numerals and the black painted hands with their off-white (but not faux vintage!) center contrast beautifully against the sharp white dial – the lume pips and the center of the hands turn noticeably green even when it’s bright outside, the famously excellent Panerai lume is so strong. Stay inside for longer, though, and as the lume discharges (and doesn’t receive much charge from ambient lights), these elements go back to being white.

Everlastingly good color contrast aside, however, the only two hands on the PAM561 are just way too short. I noticed this in official images but even during the excitement of unpacking a freshly received review unit, they soon stood out for me as too short – and, frankly, I don’t see why this was necessary. The minute hand falls way short of the track it’s by definition supposed to reach, and the hour hand sometimes just looks “lost” in the sea of white, coming in way too short to be even remotely close to the outer edge of the dial (it barely reaches halfway across).

Perhaps longer and heavier hands would have put additional strain on the movement, but if anything, an 8-day power reserve movement should have enough torque to move these thin and light hands around. I personally will go so far as to say I would have traded a day or two of power reserve for longer hands.

Limited-Edition Panerai | New Luminor Submersible

Panerai may trace its roots way back to the 1860s — and its modern collection, to the iconic pieces it developed for the Italian Navy in the 1930s — but the Florence-based, Swiss-made watch brand has officially embraced the digital age, announcing this week its first “e-commerce first” watch — the new Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio – 44mm, limited to 100 pieces and offered to online customers in Panerai’s e-boutique.

Panerai Luminor Submersible Acciaio LE - soldier
The new Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio

Manufactured at Panerai’s manufacture in Neuchâtel, the Luminor Submersible is the company’s most professional-grade divers’ watch — water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters, with a unidirectional rotating bezel for calculating dive times. (Panerai’s other main collections, the Luminor and Radiomir, while replicating the design of watches made of Italian navy frogmen of the 1930s and ’40s, are not equipped with the latter feature, regarded as a requirement on modern watches for diving.) The watch’s 44-mm case is made of AISI 316L stainless steel and features the patented, lever-like crown-locking device that secures the screw-down crown and ensures the case’s water-resistance.

The crown-locking lever device helps ensure the Luminor Submersible’s 300-meter water resistance.

The watch’s dial is a deep blue color, with applied hour markers (including applied Arabic numerals at “12” and “6”) and hands treated with a bright green Super-LumiNova for maximum low-light (or deep underwater) legibility. Above the dial is a domed sapphire crystal that features a magnifying lens over the date window at 3 o’clock. Directly across from the date display at 9 o’clock is a small seconds subdial, also with green Super-LumiNova accents, that lets the wearer know at a quick and easy glance, even in darkness, if the watch is functioning. Inside the case is Panerai’s self-winding OP XXX caliber, providing a 50-hour power reserve after being fully wound. A set of blocky, curved lugs attach the watch to its black rubber strap, which is designed to be easily swapped out with the additional strap provided with each watch.

DEAR,WEAR THE PANERAI LUMINOR LIKE A BOSS

Like Rolex, Panerai has an unmistakable look that is instantly identifiable. In fact, Panerai’s design codes are actually more stringent. A casual observer of the Panerai collection may remark that most of their watches look almost identical. Yet, Paneristis – the term used for passionate Panerai enthusiasts – would adamantly disagree. It’s all about understanding the small, but important differences among the models that fuel their passion. Panerai enjoys a cult following among celebrities, top athletes, and politicians alike. Sylvester Stallone, Payton Manning, and Bill Clinton are just a few among the famous fans of the Panerai brand.

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Accacio 44m PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088 a GMT.

Essentially there are two main Panerai models – the Radiomir and the Luminor. And these two models also include vintage-inspired collections with the Radiomir 1940 and the Luminor 1950. The Radiomir watch was named after the “radiomir” radium-based material that Panerai patented in 1916 – a material that provided luminosity to the face of Panerai watches. Panerai presented the original Radiomir watch prototype in 1936 specifically for the frogmen of the Royal Italian Navy. In 1949, Panerai patented another luminous material that utilizes Tritium and dubs it “luminor”. The following year, in 1950, the Panerai unveils the Luminor watch.

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio – 44mm

PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088
The chief differentiating design characteristic between the Radiomir and the Luminor is the bridge protecting the winding crown. An exaggerated crown guard so to speak. Opening the bridge allows turning and setting of the winding crown. while closing it renders the Luminor watertight and ready to plunge as deep as 300m underwater.

PAM00088

This particular Luminor, PAM00088, is a GMT Automatic Acciaio. “Acciaio” is the Italian word for steel and as such, the 44mm case of the PAM00088 features a stainless steel case construction. Like the Rolex GMT collection, this Panerai allows wearers to keep track of two different time zones simultaneously. Where the seconds hand would normally sweep around the dial is instead a GMT-hand that points to the 24-hour scale to indicate a second time zone like a vintage GMT. The seconds are thus indicated via a small subsidiary dial positioned at 9 o’clock. Furthermore, on the opposite side of the dial, at the 3 o’clock position, sits a date window magnified by a lens attached to the sapphire crystal. The dial carries the distinct Panerai aesthetic with a clean black background, large Arabic numerals, and plenty of lume.

PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088

Powering the PAM000888 Luminor GMT is the Panerai OP VIII caliber with 42 hours of power-reserve. The COSC-certified Panerai movement is safely housed behind the screw-down caseback. This specific Panerai PAM 000888 is outfitted with a sporty black rubber strap marked with “OFFICINE PANERAI”. However, the beauty of a Panerai watch is how easy it is to switch out the strap and the Luminor GMT also looks great dressed with a leather strap.
A bold and modern luxury watch inspired by its military history, the Panerai Luminor is certainly a watch that doesn’t go unnoticed.

【PAM00088】Panerai Luminor GMT 44mmUnboxing Review

Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm: Unboxing Review PAM00088

panerai-pam-00088-2.jpg

A Big GMT For The Modifier At Heart

Of all watch makers, Panerai package their watches in the most understated box of all of them.
The Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm is supplied in a simple light orange coloured wood box with a rigid felt like insert. This Luminor watch is supplied with a brown alligator strap with a steel deployant buckle and an additional black rubber strap. The watch is also packaged with a screwdriver to replace the strap yourself and a solid feeling .
panerai-pam-00088-15-3-16-3.jpg
The watch follows Panerai’s successful design recipe of a bold striking design in a large case, a simple uncluttered legible dial and a wide assortment of straps.
Searching on just Panerai’s site yielded 18 strap results with a deployant buckle, ranging from alligator in normalshiny and antiqued varieties, canvas, and calfskin straps. As well as titanium and steel bracelets. In addition to this there are a mind-boggling 23 different Panerai buckles compatible with this watch. Constructed from: TitaniumSteelRed GoldPink GoldWhite Goldand Tantalum.
There are then further options to be made for the metals finish: they can bebrushed or polished and the steel options can have a DLC coating, or a blackPVD coating applied.
With so many flexible options that the wearer can decide from, the Panerai watch experience is a highly individual and customised one. An iconic watch can be worn with a versatile choice of straps that gives more options to the wearer without diluting the classic design of the watch.
panerai-pam-00088-2.jpg
The Panerai Luminor GMT [ref. PAM00088] has a wide-ish 44mm case diameter, excluding the crown and lugs. It would feel more at home on a guy’s wrist of normal to large proportions; as the solid stainless steel case weighs a fair bit, and the crown protrudes out of the casing by quite a lot. It features a solid case back and curved lugs that attempt to hug the wrist. A slightly cambered sapphire crystal sits on the face of the dial with an anti-reflective coating and a magnified date window at the 3 o’clock position. This being balanced on the opposing side of the dial by a silvered second counter, that contrasts well on the black dial.
Around the circumference of the dial are the 24-hour markers alternating between lines and Arabic characters for the GMT arrow-head hand to point to. Within them, are the hour markers and minute indicators in five-minute intervals. All the numbers are in a highly legible font that can be read easily from a distance or in limited light with the help of some luminescent fill.
panerai-pam-00088-3.jpg
The Highly legible dial on the Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm shown in a low light environment
The watch is powered by an automatic OP VIII calibre movement. Which is a certified chronometer by the COSC for excellent accuracy and alternates at 28,800 VpH with a 42-hour power reserve.
Ultimately this is a bold iconic watch that has a solid presence on the wrist, all the while maintaining a high level of customizability to the wearers taste.

Panerai unveils stunning concept watch

Very few watch brands have achieved as much as  Panerai has, based on just two main collections. The Italian manufacture, with its roots in Italian naval history, has stayed very true to the DNA of the Luminor and Radiomir, each year offering subtle new features that have kept fans happy and hungry for more.

The outstanding feature of this carbon composite is its dense, uneven blackness, the appearance of which varies from cut to cut, making each dial unique. Carbotech is also lighter and more resistant to external stresses, while being hypo-allergenic and not subject to corrosion.

Taking its play with carbon further, a coating of carbon nanotubes has been used for the first time for the display dial. The optical properties of this special coating absorb light, reducing reflection to a minimum and giving the sandwich dial a startlingly deep black appearance. The blackness is contrasted by the bright blue indices and markers.
Powering the Lab-ID is the P3001/C semi-skeletonised, hand-wound calibre, featuring components made from a new integrated Tantalus-based ceramic that requires no additional lubricants. The watch comes in a black leather strap with matching blue sewing.
“In previous years, we have presented ceramic, carbotech, bronze … We take this from our DNA, from the sea. Last year, we had the titanium case and we put in the tourbillon. This year, we have put together different technologies in order to create a concept watch that is full of innovation while keeping the original DNA of the brand. That’s why we realised the Lab-ID.”
“So why is it called a concept watch despite us making 50 pieces? Because we can use these concentrations of technology in various combinations to transform Panerai in the future.”
Innovative material is also the hallmark of Panerai’s new Submersible 1950 BMG-Tech 3 Days Automatic in 47mm. At first glance, the PAM692 may seem rather similar to other Submersibles from the brand – until you take a closer look at the material. The case, bezel, winding crown and associated protection device are made of bulk metallic glass (BMG),made from a special glass-like alloy in a way which prevents crystallisation.
The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm
This disrupted atomic structure offers extreme resistance to wear, high strength and great lightness: useful qualities for an underwater watch. The dive piece is water resistant up to 300 metres and houses the new P9010 in-house movement with a power reserve of 72 hours. The P9010 – a thinner version of the P9000 – also powers the rest of the Submersible 1950 novelties for this year. The thinner calibre has allowed Panerai to introduce the first 42mm case for the Submersible 1950 collection: the classic stainless steel Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio, and the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso, which features a black ceramic bezel. Both are water resistant up to 100m.
Panerai’s Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso in 42mm (PAM682Panerai’s Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso in 42mm (PAM682)
Bronze makes its third appearance with the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo in 47mm and, for the first time, with a blue dial. Rounding up the dive collection are two titanium models, also in 47mm: the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio and the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium. The latter is the latest version of the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Panerai and also features a black ceramic bezel.
The America’s Cup novelty is the official watch of the 35th edition of the race
The 44mm stainless steel case also houses the P9010 and the black dial features the date at 3 o’clock and the seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. The words “America’s Cup” are shown below the Panerai brand at 6 o’clock, with the race logo on the caseback.

How do you think of Panerai ? Do you know PAM 685, PAM687?

Setting the controls for the 1930s, Panerai marches out two new Radiomir models inspired by vintage pieces that were once presented to the higher-ups of the Royal Italian Navy.

Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM687

The throwback detail is centred on the 12-sided bezel in brushed steel, which replicates the look of Panerai Radiomir’s screw-down casebacks. The words ‘OFFICINE PANERAI – BREVATTATO’ are inscribed on the bezel, likely alluding to the timepieces that were once sent to the authorities to be tested.

Other historical references are expressed via the case size (47mm, similar to vintage Panerai watches), the old-school wire loop lugs, and the classic sandwich dial. Two dial versions are available: black (PAM685) and shaded brown (PAM687). The latter is the one to go for, in our opinion. The retrolicious hue, which, in fact, is new dial colour for Panerai, comes with an interesting backstory. The brown mimics the faded shade of once-black dials that had changed colour due to the effects of radium, the luminescent substance that was used in old Panerai watches.

Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM685Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM687

Both models are powered by Panerai’s in-house P.3000 hand-wound movement, introduced in 2010, with three-day power reserve driven by two spring barrels. Another great feature of this movement is its quick-set mechanism, which allows for the hour hand to be set forward or backwards without interfering with the minute hand or operation of the watch.

Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM685

Each watch comes in a special wooden presentation box with additional Plexiglas crystal, a personalised certificate, and a book detailing Panerai’s involvement with the Royal Italian Navy.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days

Reference PAM00682, aka the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm, takes all of the burly appeal of the 47mm Submersible  and trims off a whopping 5mm. For me, and I think for many others who may be “benched” Panerai fans, that 5mm makes a world of difference. This is not the first 42mm Panerai, but it is the first 42mm Submersible, and it opens up the line to a wider (possibly underserved) audience. The Submersible is not Panerai’s bread and butter, but rather their more niche dive watch, making the choice to go 42mm even more interesting. Perhaps this is a test? A way of gauging the actual response for a smaller sporty Panerai?
Available in steel (the aforementioned PAM00682) or rose gold (the PAM00684), the steel version has a brushed steel bezel while the Oro Rosso features a black ceramic insert. The usual Panerai Luminor crown guard is in place, water resistance is 300m for the steel and 100m for the rose gold, and either model comes fitted to a 22mm black Caoutchouc rubber strap.
Safely housed inside its chunky case, we find Panerai’s P.9010 movement. This automatic 4Hz movement sports twin barrels to provide 72 hours of power reserve. Being a base Submersible, the P.9010 needs only offer hours, minutes, sub-seconds at nine, and a date display at three. The case back is of the display variety, allowing a view of the manufacture movement within.

On my seven-inch wrist, the 42mm Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic feels great. It’s fun, special, and a dead-on translation of the form into a smaller footprint. The rubber strap is excellent and legibility is, obviously, very good. I especially enjoy the small pop of blue provided by the sub-seconds hand on the steel Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM682. If gold is more your thing, it’s hard to beat the contrast of the gold case alongside the combo of the black dial and ceramic bezel. The lugs are drilled and use screws to mount the strap, so leather or a NATO should be of little difficulty.

As nice as the Panerai Luminor Submersible may be, I can’t decide if these 42mm models are more niche (as they may upset the already satiated Submersible crowd) or less niche (as they connect the Submersible to a new, wider audience). In considering both sides of that argument, I came to the conclusion that I don’t really care. I just know that I really love this little Sub.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo

The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo renews Panerai’s tradition of creating iconic underwater watches with unique and distinctive characteristics, with excellent technical features and a strong historical inspiration. A few years after the original launch of the watch, when this fascinating ancient material, always associated with the sea, was first brought onto the international stage of high-quality watchmaking, Paneraipresents a new watch with a bronze case, combined for the first time with a blue dial.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo Panerai SIHH 2017

The bronze used to make the case (47 mm in diameter) and the classic bridge device protecting the winding crown is an alloy of copper and pure tin, which is highly resistant to the corrosive action of sea water and atmospheric agents. As well as being structurally very strong, this material preserves its warm original tones, while acquiring an agreeably worn look from the characteristic patina which forms over time. This patina is the result of the reaction of bronze with external agents and it has no effect on the intrinsic properties of the material, but it is a visual sign of the ageing process, making every example unique and different from the rest.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo Panerai SIHH 2017

Also made of bronze is the rotating bezel with a graduated scale for calculating the time of immersion, connected to the case by a special system designed and patented by Officine Panerai to ensure the maximum precision of the clicks. In the centre of the back is a sapphire glass porthole through which the P.9010 automatic calibre, with a power reserve of three days can be admired. Completely developed and produced in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the movement is only 6 mm thick and it has very useful functions including the date (at 3 o’clock), the small seconds counter (at 9 o’clock), the device for stopping the balance wheel so as to synchronise the watch with a reference time signal, and the mechanism for rapidly adjusting the hour hand, which can be moved forwards or backwards in one-hour jumps without interfering with the running of the watch.

The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo (PAM00671) is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres) and it is completed by a brown leather strap with sewing of a nautical character and a titanium buckle.

Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LNA decade ago, Rolex launched the steel-only GMT-Master II, which went on to enjoy instant success due to its lower price and refined details that appealed to both new-gen watch geeks and old school Rollie collectors.Unlike the other Rolex sports models such as the Daytona that draws its inspiration from the namesake motorsports rally or the Submariner with its dive-ready features, the GMT-Master II has always been a favourite of the watch club.

Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542
While the steel-only GMT-Master II was launched in 1997, the GMT-Master has actually been around for over five decades. The first GMT-Master Ref. 6542 (above) was introduced in 1955 in collaboration with Pan American World Airways. The airline company had just kicked off its transatlantic routes and their pilots needed a wristwatch that could tell the home and away times at a single glance. The GMT-Master offered the perfect solution.

After that, the watch went through several tweaks such as movement upgrades, new bezels and colours from the ‘50s all the way up to ‘80s. In 1983, Rolex revamped the GMT model by releasing the GMT-Master II Ref.16790 that featured an extra thick case and large crown guards, earning it the nickname “Fat Lady”.

In 2005, the 50th anniversary model was launched with a green dial (Ref.116718 KN) and a slew of enamouring qualities such as a ceramic bezel (instead of aluminium ones) that rotates in one-hour increments, Triplock crown, maxi dial with larger hands and indexes, and the Calibre 3186 with blue Parachrom hairspring for enhanced precision. These new features soon became a mainstay of the watch and marked a new era for the GMT pieces.

When worn on the wrist, the Ref. 116710LN is a fuss-free two-time zone watch that is super easy to use and offers great versatility. The contrasting black dial and white Super-LumiNova indicators, separate 24-hour hand, anti-reflective cyclops lens, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel and Superlative Chronometer-certified performance produce a perfect combination of purpose and build.

Rolex GMT Batman
As mentioned earlier, the attractive price of RM32,650 makes this watch an extremely desirable piece especially when compared to the yellow gold version and green bezel limited editions (from the 50th anniversary revamp) as well as newer models like the ‘Pepsi’ in white gold or ‘Batman’ (above) in steel.
At the end of the day, this is a timepiece that emphasises function and versatility over style. That’s not to say it isn’t a looker. In particular, it hits the right spot compared to its flashy brethren, with the black and steel combo making it a superbly understated yet elegant watch.

Dear , we have same type, the price is lower a lot,  please contact our customer service,  you will have a pleasant surprise

Design review | Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea

rolex_deepsea_review-1.jpg
If someone had asked me about a Rolex timepiece I would like to see on my wrist, I would have point to one of the divers’ watches straight away. For some reason I have never considered myself a fan of costing an arm and a leg Daytona or Datejust models; but, this Swiss manufacturer’s “divers” were always on my must-have collector’s list, with Submariner in particular. Reviewed here Sea-Dweller Deepsea has also been close to my heart, even though I considered it as a timekeeper for genuine divers or men with a slightly different posture than mine. Yet, after spending two weeks with it, I can say one thing, we got to like each other a lot. Despite its fair weight and the fact that not all of my shirts have enough space under the cuff to accommodate mentioned Deepsea, I must say that parting with it wasn’t easy.

A slayer of the oceans is born

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Sea-Dweller Deepsea (SDDS) ref. 116660 debuted in 2008 as a successor of the Sea-Dweller model ref. 16600. Mass-produced, water resistant up to 3,900m SDDS was a real record-holder in this field when it was released for the first time. The level of 12,800 feet has been achieved thanks, inter alia, its thick convex sapphire glass, its inner ring and titanium caseback.

rolex_deepsea_review_2.jpg

Although I’m aware that divers rarely wear mechanical watches during underwater exploration, I must honestly admit that Rolex is not an amateur in this matter. Already in 1960, US Marine Bathyscaphe Trieste went down almost to the bottom of Mariana Trench as deep as 10,916m. There was a special version of Rolex Deepsea attached to its hull. Over 5 decades later, National Geographic and James Cameron organized expedition into the Challenger’s depth; the stunt was accompanied by none other than Rolex, the most water resistant mechanical watch (WR12,000) – Deepsea Challane.

Design

rolex_deepsea_review_3.jpg

SDDS’s dial doesn’t have a grainy structure, known from other manufacturers’ models. It has been given a very nice black matte finish with a whole litany of words on its surface (Oyster Perpetual Date Deepsea, Sea-Dweller, 12800ft / 3900m, Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified), considered by many people to be affecting its readability. Additionally, there are two extra tag lines on its inner ring: Original Gas Escape Valve and Ring Lock System. Such an accumulation of writings doesn’t bother me at all; I think it gives the timepiece a technical character. Especially, that Ring Lock’s engravings don’t stand out in everyday use.

rolex_deepsea_review_4.jpg

While talking about the dial we must not forget its hands; those in SDDS are wider than in standard Submariners. As a luminous material Rolex used his own, patented Chromalite, which gives a strong, blue glow. A 5.5mm thick convex sapphire glass is protecting the whole thing, without anti reflexive coating this time; even though, the timepiece looks like there was no glass at all at certain angles.

Bezel has been made of polished ceramics in deep, black colour which – along with scale markings and a little triangle filled with blue lume – looks great! It rotates anticlockwise with 120 clicks using ceramic ball bearings, and works perfectly; the movement is smooth on one hand, but very steady and accurate on the other. What has drawn my attention, was the feeling of “suspension” i.e. the whole bezel seems to be suspended on springs. It can be lightly pushed in towards the case, then it goes back to previous position when released.

rolex_deepsea_review_6.jpg

Deepsea is one of the rare Rolex timepieces with date window without a typical, distinctive little magnifier. Some say that the famous “Cyclop’s eye” would come off at great depths; others say that longer distance from the dial (caused by thicker glass) could give too strong magnification, which wouldn’t look very well.

rolex_deepsea_review_7.jpg

On the right hand side of the case we can see a guard protected Triplock crown keeping Rolex divers’ tickers company since 1970. It consists of three sealed zones, which indicate water resistance level; the three-dot telltale mark can be found on the crown under embossed firm’s logo.

rolex_deepsea_8.jpg

Across the dial, at 9 o’clock, an automatic helium release valve is located; used by few deep-sea divers, which use helium-saturated atmosphere in order to avoid air toxicity. It’s never going to be used during conventional diving. The valve itself has been created in cooperation with DOXA in order to meet requirements made by Comex (Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises), a company established in 1961 and specializing in underwater exploration.

rolex_deepsea_review_9.jpg

From the bottom it has been given a titanium caseback (slightly darker), kept down by a stainless steel screw-in, known from other Rolex models serrated ring, virtually without any incrustations.

The buckle fastens a stainless steel bracelet with polished edges; the rest of it is brushed. Despite many people’s objections that the links are too narrow comparing to the diameter of the case; the whole thing fits the wrist very well and most importantly, it does not pull hair. My only complaint would be a squeaky sound it makes when moving. I know that all it takes is a bit of oil, but I would expect the manufacturer to take care of this in a new watch.

rolex_deepsea_review_10.jpg

Indestructible construction

Now it’s time for the case. Its lateral surfaces are polished, the rest – slightly brushed. The timekeeper’s dimensions are: 44mm diameter and 17,7mm height. The whole thing, including 5mm glass and a bracelet shortened by a few links, weights just over 200 grams. It’s a lot, but I must say that I could only notice it for the first 4hrs of wearing, for the next 2 weeks I wasn’t even aware that there was anything on my wrist.

rolex_deepsea-9.jpg

An indestructible case contains the COSC certified 3135 calibre. It has been equipped with a shock absorbing Paraflex system, anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring and central, bidirectional self-winding via Perpetual rotor. The 3135 works at 28,800bph, featuring date function along with its fast adjustment and a stop-second allowing accurate time setting.

rolex_mechanizm_11.jpg

I have tried to perform different homegrown accuracy tests and managed to establish that when fully would, it lost approximately 2-3 sec per day. Its deviation has increased to 4-5 sec (slow) in the space of 24h, when the watch was left untouched for equal amount of time, making it compliant with the COSC standard.

Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT Watch Is First Double Minute Repeater

Panerai-Radiomir-1940-1.jpg

Panerai has just announced the release of their most highly complicated watch featuring  two of their brand new minute repeaters (to chime in two time zones, naturally) and a price tag starting at $400,000 and going up with customizations. Panerai wants to pay tribute to their naval history and this piece is an homage to the significance of bell-tones aboard a vessel out at sea. The Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT watch also has the distinction of being the first-ever watch with two minute repeaters, and also features a tourbillon and a brand new new movement. They must also be keenly aware that it is a future-grail piece for Paneristis and collectors, and as a result they’re offering something unusual in haute horlogerie: flexibility. The watch is made to order and buyers will be able to customize things not only like the strap but hands and even the material the case is made of.

Breaking the mold by incorporating two minute repeaters for local time and a second time zone, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT employs three hammers to achieve a melody. Initiated via a push-piece at 8 o’clock, the repeater here packs three hammers rather than the traditional two, to allow a combination of tones with the lowest timbre indicating the hour while the highest and latter tones indicate the minutes. In traditional repeaters a triple chime usually indicates a fifteen minute passage but the Carillon utilizes a decimal repeater which chimes 10 minute increments. So, for example a traditional minute repeater would chime 10:28 as ten chimes for the hour, followed by one chime for 15 minutes, followed by 13 chimes for individual minutes. Here, 10:28 is 10 chimes for the hour, two triple chimes, and 8 individual chimes. Note that they decided to use “triple chimes” for the second chime indicating 10-minute sets.
Hilariously, Panerai says this use of a decimal repeater “corresponds to customary ways in which time is now indicated by digital watches.” That’s right, Panerai just cited digital watches as, at least partly, being behind behind their logic in the making of a minute repeater watch.

As part of their plans for the near future and in alignment with the upcoming “Dive Into Time” event which will be held in a former crypt at the Museo Marino Marini in Florence, Panerai clearly sees this piece as a milestone for the brand. Obviously the familiar and iconic Panerai cases are instantly recognizable, so the the traditional Radiomir case shape is retained and done in red gold with a skeletonized dial.


The  Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT sits atop your wrist at  49mm wide and  in 18k red gold with a platinum alloy which promises to ensure superb resonance. The case is actually two pieces which have been individually crafted before being soldered together and as a result, each watch will have its own unique reverberation. Even though they could probably get away without it here, the hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova® like any good Panerai to ensure legibility. Water resistance for the Carillon is 30 meters, if you were curious.

The black skeletonized dial allows a close-up view of the hand-wound P.2005/MR which is four years in the making in the Laboratorio di Idlee in Neuchâtel Manufacture. Not content to rest on their laurels, Panerai has included their tourbillon regulator that operates a little differently than most. Rather than rotate on a parallel axis, as most tourbillons do, this one does so at a perpendicular axis and completes its rotation every thirty seconds.  Panerai claims this allows for an accurate experience while compensating for any changes in gravity or shock. The P.2005/MR contains two spring barrels and has a power reserve of 96 hours that is monitored with an indicator through the sapphire crystal back.

The story I collect Rolex

One of my hobbies was watch collecting and I used to have a good collection of wristwatches, especially Rolex watches. To complement my hobby, I had an internet forum called TURF which is the acronym for The Ultimate Rolex Forum. I moderated TURF from 1998 to 2001 and it was a very exciting time for me because the board managed to gather thousands of watch lovers from all over the world and in particular many Rolex collectors and experts. To concentrate on my photography, I stopped watch collecting in 2001and sold most of my watches, after having being an avid watch collector for more than 30 years. I also stopped moderating TURF and started Penang Talk, later Taiping Talk and then Ipoh Talk.

Below you will also see a list of selected messages written by the former participants of TURF and later archived as TURF Nuggets. They make up one of the best sources of info available about watches in general and Rolex in particular. Whether you have in interest in watches or not, you will find them enjoyable to read. Check out the island where I live. They call it the Pearl of the Orient and where Rolex watches are tax free.

20160626014816887.jpg

During my Rolex collecting days and also when I was moderating TURF, one of the most asked questions was how to tell a fake Rolex from a real one. Well, I would like to start by saying it is getting harder all the time but there are a few fundamental steps which one can follow to avoid being duped. To start with, please remember that modern Rolex watches have no “clear casebacks” or “skeleton backs”. These skeleton backs allow you to view the watch’s mechanism or movement. I remember someone posted a message to TURF saying that a couple of vintage Rolex watches (circa 1930) have clear casebacks. I have never seen such watches but it is sufficient for you to remember that as a general rule, Rolex does not make skeleton back cases in their production watches and so, if you see one, it is most likely a fake. Once when I was in Hong Kong, I saw a “Yachtmaster” with a clear caseback and it was obviously a fake and a bad one at that. Avoid all “Rolexes” with clear casebacks.

If you see a Rolex with a date function, check out the magnification of the date. The real Rolex has the date magnified more than the fake .This is especially true in the Submariner with date and the Explorer II. However, please note that the Seadweller is an exception, where the magnification is minimal. If you can manage to get a real Rolex and a fake one, a side-by-side comparison will show you the obvious difference. Take a good look at my Explorer II on top of this page. The magnification of the date should be something as large as that.

If you see a Rolex with an “engraved caseback”, it is most likely a fake because Rolex does not engrave their casebacks except for the Seadweller where the words “Rolex Oyster Original Gas Escape Valve” are engraved in a circular manner. However, please note that all Rolexes have a hologram sticker affixed to the caseback and the new hologram sticker is ” three dimensional” which allows it to be viewed from all angles. The fake sticker is “flat” and can easily be distinguished from the real hologram sticker.

Rolex.jpg

Rolex Daytona can be used as a stop watch. It is not easy to make a counterfeit Rolex Daytona and I have yet to see one that will confuse me.

The latest Rolexes have a “crown” or “coronet” etched on the watch crystal at the six o’clock position.

If you have a set of Rolex serial numbers, it is possible to determine whether a Rolex is a fake by checking the serial number engraved on the watch. The serial number of a fake or real Rolex is engraved (etched) between the lugs. However, to do this, you will have to know what these numbers signify and your local Rolex dealer can probably help you. It is enough for you to know that those numbers are often “badly engraved” on the watch and most fakes from the same supplier carry the same number.

Okay, that’s it for the time being. I will add more details here from time to time and will also try to post some pics.

What a race car driver Rolex! Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch

Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Today we will share real stories about real Rolex watches and discuss what makes both the watches and their very personal histories so unique and appealing.
Given Rolex’s tool watch heritage, it was only a matter of time before the company started manufacturing watches that were resistant to more than just moisture and dirt. As electricity proliferated throughout modern industry during the 1950s, some individuals found that the electromagnetic fields emitted by the equipment around them wreaked havoc on their wristwatches. Rolex embraced electricity’s presence and decided to create a watch that could withstand the conditions of the modern day work environment. In 1958, they released a watch that was prepared to deal with these new demands: the Rolex Milgauss, reference 6541.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The name Milgauss was created by combining two words: mille (Latin for a thousand) and gauss, the unit of measurement for magnetic forces. The name was intended to be an ever-present reminder that the watch was designed to withstand electromagnetic forces greater than 1,000 gauss. Rolex was able to achieve this feat by encasing the entire movement inside a Faraday cage. The Faraday cage (first invented by Michael Faraday in 1836) works by redistributing electromagnetic charges throughout the cage’s conducting material, thus neutralizing the effects present inside the cage.

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss came in two variations: one with a rotating bezel, featuring a minute scale (similar to that of a Submariner), and one with a large, fixed, flat bezel that was primarily intended for U.S. markets. Both versions were fitted with a lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand – an ever-present reminder of the Milgauss’s electromagnetic resilience.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The rotating bezel variant of the reference 6541 is truly unique among the Milgauss line of watches, as it most closely resembles an early iteration of Rolex’s Submariner. However, the flat bezel version of the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss marks the point in the watch line’s history where the famous electromagnetic timepiece started to take its final form.

Although it was originally invented for scientists and medical technicians working in the proximity of high-powered lab equipment, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found an early following with members of the professional automobile-racing world. While it did not possess any features specifically tailored to racing, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541’s sports-oriented style and lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand made it aesthetically fitting for those whose career revolved around the pursuit of speed.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Among the various automobile racing personnel to take interest in the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss was American professional stock car driver and owner, Bobby Allison. Born December 3rd, 1937 in Miami, Florida, Robert Arthur “Bobby” Allison entered his first race as a senior at Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School. As he was only 17 years old at the time, Allison required his parents’ permission in order to participate in the race. When his mother gave her reluctant approval, she believed it would only be for a single event; she had no idea that her son would go on to become one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers of all time. Throughout his career, Bobby Allison earned 84 credited victories, including the 1983 Winston Cup championship; and the Daytona 500, which he won three separate times, in 1978, 1982, and 1988.

Bobby Allison was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in America in 1992, the International Motor Sports Hall of Fame in 1993, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011. Allison is one of only eight drivers in the history of the sport to have won what is unofficially known as a Career Grand Slam. This feat includes winning the sport’s four majors: the Daytona 500, the Winston 500 at Talladega, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, and the Southern 500 at Darlington. After moving full-time to the Grand National circuit in 1965. Bobby Allison earned his first career victory on June 2, 1966, at the Oxford Plains Speedway. To celebrate his win, Allison purchased a reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss, and gifted it to his crew chief as a thank you present.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss that Bobby Allison purchased was one of the flat bezel variants intended for U.S. markets. Its thick, chunky case, combined with its black, “honeycomb” dial and lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand made for a distinctly sporty look that perfectly complimented the high-speed, racing lifestyle.

Although the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found an unexpected audience in members of the professional automobile-racing world, its overall sales were somewhat disappointing. Just four years before the release of the Milgauss, Rolex introduced both the GMT-Master and Submariner lines of watches, which competed directly with the Rolex Milgauss and consequently hindered its sales. While it was impressive from a technological standpoint, relatively few people in 1958 actually required the anti-magnetic capabilities of the Rolex Milgauss, and as a result, sales were rather lackluster. However, like many other vintage Rolex watches, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541’s poor initial sales are part of the reason it is now sought after by collectors today.

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss gifted by Bobby Allison to his crew chief has remained incredibly well preserved throughout the decades. The Milgauss name is printed in red on the dial surface; however, the lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand lacks the red tip that only appears on later production runs of the reference 6541.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Over the years, the black “honeycomb” dial of this particular Rolex Milgauss has turned a tropical brown color, which perfectly compliments the reference 6541’s vintage, sports-forward style. Although its original rivet link bracelet has long since been replaced by a later-era Oyster model, the case and bezel of the watch have remained unpolished, and the lugs are still nice and thick, with the bevels intact.

Most unique to Allison’s reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss is the engraving on its case-back which reads, “Bobby Allison / 1st. Modified / Permatex – 300 / 1966.” While a number of Rolex Milgauss reference 6541s were owned by high-profile drivers of the automobile racing world, only one Milgauss bears such an engraving, forever connecting it to its legendary previous owner. The Milgauss is important within Rolex’s history because it represents the company’s ongoing commitment to producing timepieces that thrive in conditions where others cannot. As the first-ever Rolex Milgauss, the reference 6541 is a rare and valuable watch that occupies an important place in Rolex’s tool watch history.

Part of what makes the Rolex Milgauss so interesting to collectors is that it largely missed its target demographic. Although it was initially intended for scientists and medical professionals, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found its strongest following with members of the American professional automobile racing industry – not because it possessed complications or design elements specifically tailored racing, but rather because of its sporty visual appearance.

Some of history’s most famous and accomplished NASCAR drivers have purchased Rolex’s reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss. From Richard Petty to Bobby Allison and numerous more, Rolex’s watch for scientists found a home with racecar drivers. Whether it was purchased for personal use, or as a gift for a loyal crewmember or industry colleague, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss has a history that is inextricably (and entirely unintentionally) linked to the world of professional automobile racing.

Cars, watches,which do you like?

Cars, watches,which do you like?Cars and watches, they just go so well together. Racing is what got me into watches, to begin with. So, for me, having a racing watch is essential. A racing watch is inspired by motor racing heritage and technology. It does not necessarily have to be a chronograph, but it should look racy. It should have a racy font to the numerals and it may be inspired by a particular race, brand or series. Wearing a racing watch is my way of expressing my two greatest passions- motor racing and timepieces. Here are my top ten racing pieces. Enjoy.

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01, 45mm skeleton dial

TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber Heuer 01

I have owned both the original 45mm model and the newer 43mm model. The 45mm skeleton dial is one watch I would love to have back again. I don’t care how affordable it may seem — this is one sensational racing timepiece. The skeleton dial just screams F1 racing and the in-house chronograph offers loads of satisfaction. This watch looks extreme and is an uncompromising, modern, fantastic expression of mechanical joy. This is actually the very first watch that comes to mind when thinking of my Top 10. As well, Red Bull’s F1 team actually uses an engine branded as TAG Heuer — this is a winner!

Hublot Unico Titanium Ferrari

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Unico Titanium 45 mm

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Unico Titanium 45 mm

Oh, you guys love to hate on Hublot! The official watch of Ferrari HAS to be on my list! I love this watch. It’s modern, racy, high end, inspired by Ferrari and it uses some cool materials. This has to be one of the coolest watches to wear to a Grand Prix… or to an outdoor BBQ party. Chances are that I will own a Hublot Ferrari watch before I own an actual Ferrari… and that’s fine by me! The day I pick up my Hublot, I’ll be staring at it too much to be able to shop for a Ferrari anyway!

Rolex Daytona Ceramic

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona (Reference116500LN)

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona (Reference116500LN)

Gorgeous. Beautiful. Classy. High end. Prestigious. Iconic. I’ll just stop there because if I have to explain THIS choice, then we really don’t connect!

I tasted this baby at the Grand Prix. Are you Canadian? Do you support Lance Stroll? Then you need this watch. The carbon fibre is gorgeous and the dial is racy. The rubber strap is exactly what you need for a hot, sunny day of racing. The price is pretty good and the wrist presence is great. Here is a great racing watch for an F1 fan!

Omega Dark Side of the Moon

Omega, Speedmaster “Dark Side Of The Moon”

You can debate whether this is a racing watch, but surely the Speedmaster lineage puts it in the motor racing club. I have tried, worn and handled this watch and it is one of my fantasy pieces. This is such a competent and beautiful chronograph with a high end movement and a racing vibe. Ohhhh…. I want one!

Bell & Ross BR 03-94 RS17

Renault Sport Formula One Team’s new R.S.17 racing car and the Bell & Ross BR03-94 RS17

This is what racing watches are all about — a sensational timepiece born out of a partnership between Bell & Ross and Renault F1 team. I have yet to see one in the flesh, but I have seen enough to know that this is one lust-worthy racing timepiece.

IWC Ingenieur 50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG

IWC Ingenieur 50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG

IWC Ingenieur 50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG

I much prefer some of the older IWC Mercedes watches, but this one has a gorgeous retro look. As a sponsor of the world champion Mercedes F1 team, you HAVE to include this watch on a top ten racing list. This is a pretty serious timepiece you can show off in the paddock or the board room.

Porsche Design Monobloc Actuator

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR GMT Chronograph All Titanium

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR GMT Chronograph All Titanium

If you want a motor racing watch, why not buy a Porsche Design watch? This one is sleek and attractive with a proven ETA Valjoux movement. Its carbon fiber dial and rubber strap will look great in pit lane.

Any watch you are interested in, please feel free to contact us! Waiting for you here!

【Knowledge】 Dive Watches in Depth

Dear watch fans,  do you know  the meaning of water resistance  dive bezels, depth gauges?
0_副本.jpg

How water resistant should a dive watch be?


Some manufacturers say that their watches with a water-resistance rating of 300 meters or more are suitable for recreational scuba diving. Others say the watch need have a rating of just 200     meters; still others say it can be 200 meters as long as it is specifically labeled as a dive watch. The International Standards Organization (ISO), on the other hand, stipulates that a dive watch must be water resistant to 100 meters.

All these depth ratings are significantly higher (or lower, if you will) than the depths to which a non-professional diver can dive. Recreational divers don’t go deeper than 40 meters (130 feet). Beyond that, they enter the realm of technical diving, which requires extensive training, special mixed gases to breathe, long decompression stops and special equipment.

The reason for the discrepancy: when tested for water resistance in the factory, the watch is in an artificial environment that is much different from what the watch will face during an actual dive. For the test, the watch is perfectly stationary, the gaskets brand new, and the case newly assembled, so that nothing will compromise its water resistance. The testing machinery does not account for such phenomena as additional pressure from the impact of the wearer’s jumping or diving into the water; or for temperature and pressure changes as the diver ascends and descends, which can cause the case to shrink or expand. Furthermore, a watch’s water resistance will be lessened by aging of the watch’s gaskets. Knocks and other rough treatment can cause the case’s components to fit together less tightly than they did when the watch was brand new. All these imponderables cause the companies to provide a rather large cushion of safety so that customers will not hold them responsible if their watches leak.

A screw-in crown is essential to a watch’s water resistance.

What features make a watch impermeable enough for diving?


Several features are required to make a watch impermeable enough to wear diving. In nearly all dive watches, the case has a screw-in back and crown. O-rings are used to seal the crown, caseback and crystal. The case and crystal are thicker than in a non-dive watch. Watches designed for very deep diving often have additional pressure-defying features such as domed crystals, or a steel ring for reinforcing the case (as on the Rolex Deepsea).

What are the other features of a dive watch?

Most dive watches have a rotating bezel for measuring elapsed time. They also have luminous hands and markers that can be read underwater. ISO standard 6425 requires a dive watch to have a “time-preselecting device” (a rotating bezel satisfies this requirement) and a dial that can be read in the dark at a distance of 25 cm. The ISO also says the watch must have an indicator that shows at a glance if the watch is still running. A seconds hand satisfies this requirement. Most dive watches have a steel or titanium bracelet or rubber strap, although some straps are made of nylon or various composite materials. Some dive bracelets and straps are equipped with an extension device that  enables the watch to fit over a dive-suit sleeve. Some dive watches have a helium valve and/or a depth sensor.

A bracelet with a divers’ extension can be lengthened to fit over a wetsuit.

What is a helium valve?


A device for equalizing the pressure inside and outside the watch case when the watch is worn in a diving chamber. Inside the chamber, divers breathe a gas mixture that contains helium. The helium molecules are extremely small and are hence able to penetrate the watch case, building up inside it. In the process of decompression, the pressure inside the chamber decreases more rapidly than the pressure inside the case. This can cause the watch crystal to pop off. To prevent that, some watches have a valve on the side of the case that allows helium to escape from the case during decompression, making the pressure inside and outside the case the same.

Do many dive watches have helium valves?


Most dive watches do not have helium valves because they are of use only in saturation diving, when a diver spends time in a diving chamber.

Rolex helium valve
A helium valve prevents the watch crystal from popping off when the diver is in a decompression chamber.

Why do the rotating bezels on most dive watches turn in only one direction?


Most dive bezels turn in one direction only, counterclockwise, so that the bezel cannot be accidentally knocked off position in the clockwise direction and thus understate the elapsed time (usually the total dive time) being measured. Some watches solve this problem by using inner rotating bezels that cannot be rotated accidentally.

Many bezels have only the first 15 minutes marked individually. Why?


This is a dive-watch convention that goes back to the mid-1950s (it probably started with the Rolex Submariner). It is unclear what purpose the markers were originally meant to serve. An early Submariner advertisement shows a diver setting the bezel to measure total dive time, then using the minutes markers for a precise reading of his descent time. Why this information is useful is not explained (and standard diving procedures don’t require it).

An oft-tendered explanation for the markers is that they are used to time decompression stops, but this explanation is problematic. The diver would have to reset the bezel at the beginning of each stop. The bezel could not therefore be used to measure total dive time, the main purpose of the bezel.

One possible explanation for the markers: 15 minutes is the approximate amount of time a diver can spend at 130 feet, the maximum depth for recreational diving, without making decompression stops. The markers might have been intended to alert him to that limit and help him read his remaining bottom time precisely. This theory is supported by some versions of the Omega Seamaster, which had gradations for the first 20 minutes (a diver can spend about 20 minutes at 110 feet, close to the depth limit). On the Seamaster 200, the 20-minute segment was painted fire-engine red, possibly to warn the diver of the hazard of staying deep for too long.

Tudor Dive Watch
Dive watches have luminous hands and markers that can be read under water.

How do depth-gauge watches work?


In most, there is a sensor (typically a membrane or diaphragm) on the side of the case that is distorted by water pressure. The degree of distortion is then converted into feet or meters of depth and displayed by hands on the watch face. Oris, in its Aquis model, uses another type of depth gauge: it has a tubule around the perimeter of the crystal with a tiny opening to the outside. More or less water enters the tubule, depending on the depth, and the diver can read the depth in meters on the scale next to the tubule.

How many mechanical dive watches have depth gauges?


Just a handful. Aside from the aforementioned Oris Aquis Depth Gauge, other mechanical watches with depth gauges include the Blancpain X Fathoms, the IWC Aquatimer Deep Three, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Pro Geographic and the Panerai Luminor 1950 Pangaea Depth Gauge (which  despite its mechanical movement has an electronic depth gauge).

Some watch depth gauges record the deepest point of a dive. Why?


There are three reasons. First, for safety’s sake, the dive-time limits prescribed by dive tables assume the diver spends his entire dive time at the deepest point of the dive. To use the dive table, the  diver must therefore know his deepest point. Second, it is a generally accepted rule of diving that the diver should do the deepest part of the dive first. This gives him the maximum amount of time to off-gas the relatively high amount of nitrogen he absorbed at the bottom of the dive (the lower you go, the more nitrogen dissolves in your blood). Third, many diving experts recommend that, even in no-decompression diving, which doesn’t require decompression stops, the diver make a so-called “safety” stop of one minute halfway between the lowest point of the dive and the surface in order to off-gas nitrogen.

IWC Aquatimer Deep Three
A handful of mechanical dive watches, like the IWC Aquatimer Deep Three (above) and Blancpain X Fathoms (below), offer a special extra feature: a depth gauge.
Blancpain X Fathoms

Which mechanical watch has the deepest water-resistance rating?


The CX Swiss Military 20,000 feet. The watch, made of titanium, is nearly 3 cm thick; the crystal alone is 1 cm thick.

In this age of dive computers, are dive watches necessary?


Not really. Divers sometimes take them as backups to their dive computers, should the computers run out of power during a dive, but now that wrist-worn dive computers are widely available and reasonably priced, some divers use these as backups to their console-style computers (or wear two wristwatch-style computers). If a diver does use a watch as a backup, he also needs other backup equipment that supplies information  given by a dive computer: a depth gauge, pressure gauge and dive tables.

Then why do so many people buy dive watches?


For several reasons. Many people like the sense of security that a high water-resistance rating provides. If a watch is safe to wear on a deep dive, they reason, surely it is guaranteed to survive a swim or a snorkeling excursion. Others like a dive watch’s other features, such as a rotating bezel or highly luminous hands and markers. For many dive-watch wearers, looks are the main draw: sporty, technical-looking watches are all the rage.

The Rolex Daytona Story

history of daytona watch by rolex

The Rolex Daytona Story

The engine revving and high speed driving is thrilling. But capturing time when speed is your objective can be difficult. The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the perfect accessory for those seeking high performance, fine engineering and craftsmanship, and, of course, a passion for driving and speed. The Daytona is the best example of the Rolex chronography. It is reliable, waterproof, and self-winding, among its many features.

The Rolex Daytona and Paul Newman

The Rolex Daytona is named for the city where the first NASCAR race was held. Daytona has always been associated with racing, and the Rolex Daytona lives up to that reputation with its chronograph functions. Originally designed for racecar drivers, the Daytona shot to fame when Paul Newman sported his own model. Preceded by the Reference 6238, the Daytona evolved from a simple timekeeping watch to a “chronograph” watch that marked all types of information useful to those timing races.

The Daytona, or cosmograph, was originally launched in 1963. It was a new-generation chronograph, considered in many respects to be the ultimate chronograph. Dedicated to racing drivers, the Daytona provides the high performance accepted, while also remaining comfortable and elegant. It offers several features particular to drivers. The chronograph counters are easily seen, as they stand out clearly with strongly contrasting black and light color of the face and dials. The tachymetric scale, allowing the user to measure the average speed over a given distance, was moved from the dial to the circumference of the bezel. This new design feature, along with the contrasting coloring made the symbols far more legible.

Daytona Features

In 2013, the Daytona became the first Oyster model in the Professional range to be offered in platinum. It also features a unique ice blue dial, exclusive to its Rolex platinum models. It is also equipped with a spectacular monobloc Cerachrom bezel. The Cerachrom is an exclusive Rolex innovation which offers exceptional resistance against scratching, as well as offering a beautiful and aesthetic appearance. The technical and sporty look of the Dayton make it instantly recognizable and timeless.

Rolex Professional watches are members of a ten year old category dedicated to various adventurers. For example, models such as the explorer were dedicated to explorers and mountaineers, offering special features that those in that particular experience could utilize. Like the explorer and Daytona watches, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner is a member of the Professional category, specially designed for those who pursue deep-sea diving.

【Story 】 Would you ever wear a Rolex?

Rolex-1.jpeg

Rolex Datejust II

Would I ever wear a Rolex? That’s the question. And I have an answer yet.

I have never been a Rolex guy. In my opinion, Rolex are made with supreme quality and use the most accurate and robust movements on Earth. They are made to the highest standards. I like every model of Daytona, I love the newer Datejust II, and I sort of like the Explorers. The Submariners are OK except for the awful hands. But, in general, I think Rolex have the worst style of all- old fashioned, far too small, gawdy, terrible.

But my issues with Rolex are not with the timepieces themselves, but rather with the people who wear them. You see, two types of people wear Rolex. First, you have real serious collectors and connaisseurs who wear Rolex. These men have means and choose Rolex for the rich history and unparalleled quality. Second, you have morons and douche bags who wear Rolex. These are men with money, but no knowledge of haute horology and no taste. You know the guy- he’s dumb but entrepreneurial. He started a business, worked hard, got lucky and sold it for millions. He figured he should have a great watch and Rolex was the only brand his friends knew about. Armed with a few bucks and a newspaper ad, he buys a two tone Submariner from his local AD. This man cannot get over the fact that his Rolex does not need a battery.

Now, this second category of Rolex owner is the reason why I might never wear a Rolex. I can’t stand him. I want a timepiece associated with sophistication, class, style and success and not a piece synonymous with rich morons. I don’t want to be confused with Rolex man #2.

The two pieces that could sway me are the Daytona chronograph and the Datejust II. The first is an iconic racing chronograph available in several mind blowing variations. The second is, perhaps, the ultimate dressy-yet-all-purpose timepiece ever made with near – perfect test results. I would seriously consider either of these. Plus, I am told that every serious collection must include at least one Rolex. I had a Tudor- does that count? Frankly, I prefer Tudor. The Pelagos and Fastrider are awesome.

But it does feel like there is some unfinished business while I have never owned a Rolex…

My experience of buying a Rolex SubC No Date and how much I like it

Hi Everyone. I have been reading so much here, but never contributed anything. I really feel like sharing my experiences of purchasing a Rolex Sub C No Date. Hope you don’t mind.Following a long period of comparing various Rolex watches, mainly the Sub C, Explorer I, the GMT ceramic BLNB and also the Datejust (fluted bezel), my significant other can’t tolerate my nightly habit of ogling those watches anymore. Initially I hesitated due to the high price (to me at least), then started calling ADs in various cities, such as Berlin and Madrid and compare the prices. The prices in the city where I live is simply out of the question, much higher than in Europe, even VAT exempted.

Meanwhile I have not settled my decision yet whether to finally purchase the the Sub C or the Explorer I. To me, I was not very of the cyclop and although the date function is very useful, but I figured that I should start remembering dates daily, so the no date sub is what I have in mind. Finally, I thought that the silver Arabic numbers in the Explorer I was a little too big and too shiny. So the Sub C no date it was.

My inquiries on the phone with sales assistants in ADs in Berlin and Madrid were very useful. They willingly tell my their stock and also what the price would be without VAT. However, I notice that the VAT return could be quite complicated and that more often the case, a fee is charged. I also have to consider plane tickets and hotels to my cost. I then came across the city of Ceuta, a Spanish territory in Africa. It also has an additional benefit, namely the entire city does not apply VAT and has a listed Rolex AD. I called them up and with minimum communication (I don’t speak Spanish and his English is limited), I gather that the watch I wanted was in stock that the price would be about 200 Euros less than the full price in Madrid. It was rather odd as the price offered without VAT in Madrid was much less. There was no way I could argue about VAT exemption with the limited communication we are experiencing. But from my readings I knew that when it comes to purchasing Rolex, you have to go to the store in person and haggle. Most ADs do not like to haggle over the phone.

On a beautiful Friday morning, we went to Ceuta and straight to the AD. I haggled and once they realized that I was a serious buyer, they offered me a final price which was not entirely VAT exempt, but about what I would have gotten had I bought it in Madrid and went through VAT refund. You see, through rudimentary calculations, I come to understand that even though VAT rate is 21% in Spain, but after VAT refund process is completed, the price of the item would only be 11-12% cheaper than the full price.
How do I feel after wearing the Sub C no date after 6 months? Well, so much has been written about it in this forum and I think most of it is true. On my personal note, the reason I wanted a Rolex is to have a solid and serious watch. For some unknown reason I am attracted to it. It seems every part of Rolex is well thought and well designed. I can not deny that a part of me feels that owning a Rolex would be a status symbol as well. But now, once I own it, I tend to wear the watch under the cuff as I were rather hiding than exposing it. It is almost as if I wanted that my relation with the watch that I am wearing would be a secret because wearing a Rolex gives me so much satisfaction on so many different levels.

I hope that my experience would be useful here, and to those hesitating of buying a Rolex, do not hesitate anymore. I did not regret my purchase and it has been on my wrist ever since. Last week I wanted to rest my rolex and use another watch for one or two days, but I simply couldn’t.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

When I first read the press release, I thought I was looking at the proposal for a Swiss-based Bamford Watch Department, but that’s not the case at all. This company takes a different tack to the concept of customisation of a Rolex in the style of Bamford or Made Worn (this Rolex Milgauss by Made Worn is still my favourite Rolex ever). This is more like an homage, with a restoration to make the watch a contemporary piece. It kind of reminds me of ICON Automative and what they do with cars.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

The Rolex Daytona 6263, takes its “Big Red” nickname from the large, red Daytona that curves around the top of the six o’clock sub-dial.Reputedly, the team spent over two years researching its nuances, and the combined efforts of nine craftsman over a 78-hour period were required to assemble the dial. The dial and the updated hands (which are not identical to the original, but a nice evolution) offer exceptional legibility, and are the epitome of a racing chronograph when paired together.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

Other exterior modifications include the hand-made “push-pump” pusher pieces, which still guarantee water resistance to 100m, but also offer a smooth look and feel during operation. The sleek form is complemented by the bakelite bezel, which mirrors the fashions of 1970. These days, we’re used to seeing steel, aluminium, or ceramic as the main material for bezel inserts. This material gives a really vintage, authentic feel to the piece, and was worth the necromancy it must have taken to resurrect the almost forgotten skill of working bakelite into a luxury product.

Rolex 6062 Bao Dai

This black dial Rolex reference 6062 was purchased in 1954; at the time, it was the most expensive watch Rolex offered (Picture courtesy of John Goldberger).

Rolex produced only two references with a triple calendar and a moon-phase, both at the beginning of the 1950s. And both have become extremely coveted since, undoubtedly because of their striking look: the reference 6062 presents these complications in a traditional Oyster case while the reference 8171 went for a more angular (and bigger, at 38mm) case. Nowadays, these are the pieces that auction rooms go crazy for, equally for stainless steel and gold cases. Yet, the “Bao Dai” 6062 is on a whole other level. This isn’t a watch you expect to see again for quite some time.

The “Bao Dai” Rolex 6062 is the only known example to feature this diamond configuration on a black dial.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea

Do you know divers’watches of Rolex?

All divers’ watches share certain characteristics that make them divers’ watches: unidirectional rotating bezels, secure screw-down crowns, higher-than-typical water resistance. Some of these divers’ watches, however, go the extra mile (or fathom), with cases that can descend to 3,000 or even 4,000 meters, chronographs operable at incredible depths, or high-tech depth gauge devices built into their mechanical movements. Below, we take a look at seven of these “extreme” dive watches and what sets them apart from the pack.

Rolex_Deepsea_D-Blue_full_560.jpg

The Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea has a water-resistance level of 3,900 meters (nearly 13,000 feet), and it is more than 10 percent slimmer than it otherwise would have been thanks to a special case construction developed by Rolex. It consists of three pressure-absorbing elements: a 5.5 mm thick sapphire crystal, a 3.28-mm-thick caseback made of grade 5 titanium, and an inner ring (on which both of them rest) made of Biodur-108 steel. Last summer, Rolex launched the new Rolex Deepsea D-Blue Edition (pictured below), with a proprietary “D-Blue” dial that is dark blue at the top, and then darkens gradually to black at the bottom.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Rolesor Watches For 2017

Rolex Sky-Dweller Rolesor Watches For 2017 With More Accessible Prices Watch Releases

Among this year’s new releases for Baselworld 2017, Rolex is introducing some tweaks to the Rolex Sky-Dweller watch with “Rolesor” model options. While an all-steel version is still frustratingly unavailable, these two-tone gold and steel models represent a relatively more budget option. It’s a step in the right direction, at least. As even the slightest stir from Rolex is apparently headline-worthy, let’s take the loupe to this 2017 Rolex Sky-Dweller, beginning with the new hands and indexes.

These new Rolex Sky-Dweller models are characterized by the blocky, rectangular indexes and longer hands. Previous models have all been Roman or Arabic numerals that could even be viewed as quirky in a Rolex context, so this adds a significantly more standard and conservative option to the collection. Further, it will allow Rolex savants to distinguish at a glance, say, an all-white-gold model from a two-tone steel and white gold model. Longer hands, as we saw on the Rolex Explorer last year, are always a welcome improvement to legibility and aesthetic balance.

Between a few dial color options, these features debut on a range of about six Rolex Sky-Dweller models, with two variations of a “Rolesor” case. If you’ve been living under a rock (or have a life outside of watches), “Rolesor” is Rolex’s special term for a two-tone case, meaning steel and gold. In this release, we are talking about steel plus yellow gold or white gold. Owners, at least, of two-tone steel and white gold models will hopefully know which parts of their expensive Rolex Sky-Dweller watches are which material.

The new hands and indexes also give a lot more surface for lume (or “Chromalight”) than previous Rolex Sky-Dwellers, and Rolex is emphasizing just how glowy they will be in the dark. Other features of the Rolex Sky-Dweller are mostly carried over from past versions. That includes the cool and useful Ring Command bezel that rotates to different positions and is used in conjunction with the crown to set the various functions that include a 24-hour second time zone and annual calendar. The 42mm case is water-resistance is 100m. The new Rolex Sky-Dweller models come on two-tone, solid link bracelets with Rolex’s handy Easylink extension system that many will be familiar with.

The Rolex caliber 9001 inside with its antimagnetic Parachrom balance spring and Paraflex shock absorbers is, of course, certified by Rolex’s own stringent tests and guaranteed to be accurate to -2/+2 seconds per day. This is standard across all Rolex watches but still impressive, and you canread more about Rolex’s certification standards here. The 9001 has automatic winding, of course, and gets a power reserve of about 72 hours. The ability to set the functions backward or forward safely is an appreciated feature, and you have to love the clever way of indicating the month – in red, through an aperture on the periphery of the 12 indexes.

Watch comparation | The Rolex Reference 6062 In Steel

The watch I was drawn to the most was a stainless steel Rolex reference 6062 – what can I say, expensive taste is the cross that I must bear. This watch caught my attention for many reasons, but mostly because while I had heard of this good-looking reference, I didn’t know a ton about it. So what is the 6062 all about? Let’s find out.

Rolex6062Steel-6.jpg

The Rolex reference 6062 in stainless steel on the wrist – it is very comfortable to wear, to say the least.


What Is The 6062?

We have talked about the reference 6062 before on HODINKEE, specifically theBao Dai, these two rose gold “Stelline” dial versions that came up for auction a while back, and one or two that have come up at Phillips previously. However, it is important to note that none of these examples are steel. Only a single watch like that has appeared on HODINKEE before, and it’s owned by Jason Singer, as seen in his Talking Watches video.

The stainless steel 6062 is one of the rarest examples of the reference. It is one of just three Rolex references that feature a moonphase – the vintage ref. 6062 and ref. 8171, and the brand new Cellini Moon-Phase released this year at Baselworld. Making its debut at Baselworld in 1950, the 6062 was the first automatic triple calendar moonphase watch in a waterproof Oyster case (the 8171 is not in a waterproof case). Considering the Datejust debuted in 1945, this was a pretty advanced watch for Rolex at the time. The 6062 managed to marry a high-end complication, usually reserved for more delicate watches, with a sporty, waterproof Oyster case all while maintaining the everyday wearability we associate with Rolex.

A rose gold “Stelline” 6062.

A yellow gold “Stelline” 6062.

The 6062 was produced in yellow gold, rose gold, and stainless steel, with two-tone silvered dials and sometimes, in rare cases, black ones. The gold models featured a series of dial configurations ranging from the “Stelline” (with stars as hour markers), the “Pyramid” (with triangular indexes at the quarter hours), darts (with arrow-head like indexes), diamond indexes (like the Bao Dai), and the 3-9 configuration. The steel 6062s only featured two-tone silvered dials with the 3-9 Arabic numerals in steel or yellow gold and luminous alpha hands.

talking_watches_with_jason_singer_45.jpg

This is another exemplary 6062 in steel, owned by Jason Singer (as seen in his Talking Watches episode). This is one of the best steel 6062s out there, so it is helpful to look at this one next to the one coming up at Phillips for context.

The complications consist of the moonphase, the date, which is indicated by the outer chapter ring, and the day and month which are displayed in twin apertures at 12 o’clock. The watch itself is chronometer certified and this is indicated underneath the day and at the month. In some cases, like the Bao Dai, the “Chronometer Certified” is located in the sub-dial at six o’clock. The case is your standard 36mm Oyster case with screw-down case back and inside is the automatic Rolex caliber 655.

Only about 200-300 6062s were made in stainless steel, all between the years 1950 and 1953. This is a crazy low number of production for Rolex, which nowadays makes upward of 800,000 watches per year. And, if that sounds like a lot for some reason, know that only about 40 steel 6062s are known to be in the market today, very few of them in really great condition.

Collectibility

The steel 6062 gained traction in the 1980s when Japanese collectors started scooping up the really good examples. These watches were later sold to European dealers and collectors in the late 1990s, which later still showed up at auctions over the past decade. It is really tough to find a good example that has maintained both its condition and originality (remember, condition is king with vintage Rolex).

There’s an embarrassment of excellent new divers coming to market right now, and IWC have jumped right in and announced the addition of three new additions to its well regarded diver’s watch family. One of these is the Aquatimer Automatic 2000(Ref. IW358001), so called because it is water resistant to 2000 meters.

IWC’s Aquatimer Automatic 2000 for 2016 comes with yellow hands and numerals and a black dial. The ori­gins of this timepiece go all the way back to 1982 with a watch designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche for mine clear­ance divers. The Aquatimer Automatic 2000 is intended for the ambitious amateur and professional divers alike.

It’s powered by an IWC-manufactured 80110-caliber movement with automatic winding and a 44-hour power reserve. Like other watches in the IWC portfolio the watch features a mechanical external/internal rotating bezel, the SafeDive system and luminescent elements. The movement is housed in a 46mm titanium case. The engraving of a deep-sea diver on the case back and the black rubber strap com­plete the sporty appeal of the watch.

Love it? Get it ! Breitling Chronoliner B04 & Chronomat 44

Breitling Chronoliner B04 & Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition Watches Watch Releases

The brand has  garnered attention in the last year for their collaboration with Tudor (as we discussed when looking at the Breitling Superocean Heritage II watches) in producing several new manufacture chronograph calibers such as the Breitling B01 (which Tudor calls the MT5813). Now, nodding toward their long-standing history with aviation, Breitling has released the Breitling Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition and the Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition. These are limited-edition blue versions of popular Breitling models produced in small quantities of 100 each and available only in Breitling boutiques.

Breitling’s new Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition differs from the standard model most prominently in its blue color theme with a blue “Vietnamese mother-of-pearl” dial and an individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. For those unfamiliar with the model, the Breitling Chronomat 44 is a 44mm stainless-steel, aviation-oriented watch capable of 500m of water resistance and equipped with Breitling and Tudor’s co-designed B01 caliber, a COSC-certified 47-jewel automatic movement manufactured by Breitling with 70 hours of power reserve that oscillates at 28,800bph (4Hz).

Second in their limited series of boutique-only offerings is the Breitling Chronoliner B04, a special version of their Chronoliner which differs from the off-the-shelf version in its inclusion of the Breitling-manufactured B04 movement, blue color scheme, and similarly individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. The 47 jewel, self-winding, 70-hour-power-reserve, in-house-manufactured B04 movement is worthy of special mention for its capability of tracking both a second and third timezone by way of an additional red-tipped hand and a blue ceramic 24-hour bezel which has also been given the blue treatment.

Do you like it? The Rolex reference 6062 “Bao Dai”

The Rolex reference 6062 “Bao Dai” was sold as lot 93 of today’s Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: Five, setting the new world record (as everyone expected).

This unique ref. 6062 is special for a number of reasons. It is the only known example of the ref. 6062 with a black dial and diamond indexes, and it belonged to the last emperor of Vietnam, who was quite the character. Many expected it to break the previous Rolex record (held by a split-seconds chronograph ref. 4113 sold by Phillips just 12 months ago), but the Bao Dai smashed past the CHF 2.5 million mark right from the start, and the only unknown left was how far collectors would go for this watch.

Rolex6062BaoDai-5.jpg

It’s no surprise this watch took back its old record – just look at it.

This watch just looks stupendous on the wrist.

Be sure to read Louis’s in-depth report on this watch here, and stay tuned for more reports live from the Geneva auctions all weekend and into Monday.

Why do we love them? Rolex Daytona 116508 and IWC caliber 89760

Why do we love it?Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 In Yellow Gold With Green Dial

The Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 in yellow gold with green dial.

The Rolex Daytona Reference 116508 in yellow gold with green dial.

What Is It?

This is the reference 116508, and it’s the well-known Daytona but in yellow gold with a green dial and red accents. Sure, the steel/ceramic combo got all the attention (like, seriously, all the attention), but we were able to see this watch at Baselworld privately and loved it. Now that it is out in the world for everyone to see, we can finally talk about it. In person, the dial color is much more of a deep emerald green than it looks in the press images  (Jack almost had a heart attack when he saw it, in keeping with his weakness for gold Rolexes).

Why Do We Love It?

Because if you haven’t figured it out by now, we’re pretty big Daytona fans here at HODINKEE HQ, and I am personally into a bit of bling. It’s also almost the polar opposite of the Daytona that everyone’s talking about right now, and a bit of a contrarian’s solution to the popularity and, some would say, overexposure of the steel/ceramic modeld.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph

IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph.

What Is It?

This cool worldtime chronograph from IWC is another one that sadly seemed to get lost in the year’s shuffle. This watch is particularly cool as it allows the wearer to change the timezone simply by turning the bezel to the correct city. This technology was initially invented by Michael Vogt and his company Vogard. IWC later purchased this technology, and voila! You have the 45mm Timezoner Chronograph. On top of this new worldtime function, the watch features a flyback chronograph, 24-hour indication, summer time indication, 12-hour and 30-minute registers, time (duh) and date.

Why Do We Love It?

This watch features an in-house IWC caliber (89760) movement and the classic aviator styling. It’s also a great example of IWC reinterpreting complications in new, practical ways (with some help from acquired technology, if we’re being fair). Worldtime and travel time watches can be difficult and clumsy to use, but this one’s extremely easy. Some folks find it too big and/or too busy, and while there is something to both objections, we loved the combination of a chronograph with a great, and unusual, implementation of a dual time zone complication.

Like it or dislike it? A Yellow Gold Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263

Like it or dislike it?

This week, our highlight is undoubtedly a yellow gold Rolex Daytona ref. 6263, with a truly stunning black dial. We have also selected a pair of dive watches, a 1960s Longines with a tropical dial and a 1970s Zenith with a funky orange dial. And, for diversity’s sake, you will also find a Zenith chronometer featuring the award-winning caliber 135.

Longines Diver Ref. 7150-1, With Tropical Dial

Longines Diver 7150-1

Here it is easy to spot the Super Compressor case, with its characteristic cross-hatched crowns. Manufactured by Piquerez, it relied on the increased water pressure to further seal the case as a diver went deeper and deeper, with a caseback pressed more firmly to the case as the diver progressed. Longines trusted this ingenious case construction for its dive watches from the late 1950s onward, starting with the ref. 7042, before the launch of the ref. 7150 in the early 1960s. The reference switch was accompanied by an increased water resistance to 200m and the replacement of the automatic caliber 19AS with the higher beat movement 290.

Very obviously, the dial has turned brown from age, allowing us to describe it as truly tropical (some light pitting can be observed on the close-up pictures too). The tropicalization is a coveted feature, especially when the phenomenon is homogeneous across the dial’s surface; here it looks stunning, especially with the patinated radium on the handset and painted indexes. The 42mm case remains sharp, with well defined lugs, but the seller notes that the bottom crown is a replacement part. The caseback features the expected diver embossing and the serial number is engraved on the inside.

Longines Diver 7150-1 Tropical

The dealer LunarOyster offers this tropical Longines Diver 7150-1 for $16,000.

Yellow Gold Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263, With Black Sigma Dial

Rolex Daytona Reference 6263

The vintage Rolex Daytona seems ubiquitous in auction catalogs these days, but finding a nice yellow gold one always proves a challenge. Of those, the ref. 6263 is one of the most actively pursued, especially with a black dial. Visually, the appeal is easy to get, the black bezel and back dial contrasting nicely with the yellow gold case. And the screw-down pushers give even more presence to the 37mm case, in addition to the increased water resistance (although we really don’t recommend exposing any vintage Daytona to water nowadays).

The example here shows a sigma dial, with the small symbols placed at the bottom of the dial around the “T-Swiss-T” line. This denomination is consistent with the 1977 production date implied by the serial number engraved on the case. The tritium lume on the handset has taken on a nice patina, but you won’t fail to notice a couple of missing lume plots on the dial. Importantly, this 6263 kept its original pushers and its case was not excessively polished, as evidenced by the curves of the lugs. And the yellow gold rivet bracelet is just the sweet finishing touch, especially since its links remain tightly attached (loose stretch being common on those vintage bracelets).

Get it or Leave it? Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On

Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On
The Rolex Sky-Dweller was released in 2012 as the brand’s first totally new watch collection in over 10 years. Naturally, at the time of the release this was major news, and not only because it was a completely new reference from the brand. It was was also a watch that included a new movement with a new complication for Rolex – an annual calendar and GMT – and it remains Rolex’s most complicated watch. New for Baselworld 2017 is a refreshed model in gold and steel with some tweaks to make the dial sleeker. These new “Rolesor” models are also less than half the cost of the previous versions, which will open the line up to a whole new market.Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On

Initially only available in gold with prices between CHF 35,000 and CHF 45,000, these new gold and steel Rolex Sky-Dweller models are way less, ranging between CHF13,700 to CHF16,300 which basically fills in the market between the Datejust and the President (while being less aggressive and sporty than the Yacht-Master watch). It’s a Rolex that isn’t as ubiquitous as the Datejust 41 for not an absurd amount of money more (the steel and gold Datejust 41 costs $12,700).

At 42mm wide, it’s one of the bigger Rolex watches out there and that alone likely presents a lot of appeal to people who prefer a bigger case – and it has a 100m of water resistance to boot. With the fluted bezel, it looks unmistakably Rolex, which is also an important factor in many people’s Rolex purchase decisions.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On

The first generation Rolex Sky-Dweller’s restrictive price and the fact that it only came on a leather strap kept the watch from breaking through to a wider market segment, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you start to see a lot more of them now. They look great in person, and the use of indices rather than Roman or Arabic numerals make the dial look a lot sleeker and less disorienting (than a ring of numbers around the off-center 24-hour disc). I think comparing the two images above helps illustrate the more casual and less, let’s say, “formal” look and feeling of these new pieces, further aided by the bracelet option.

I think it makes sense to discuss the Rolex Sky-Dweller a bit more since it isn’t a piece most people are really too familiar with. When it was released in 2012, the Rolex Sky-Dweller came as a bit of a shock to the watch world, since Rolex tends to be very conservative and primarily introduces new watches only with minor variations or small updates. With the new model and movement Rolex had made available for the first time, an annual calendar and second time zone watch was notably innovative for two big reasons.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On

Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On

First, to show the month of the year, Rolex added a small aperture to the conveniently existent 12 indices used to show the hour in most watches. So, to show the month of March, a small aperture on the outside of the 3 o’clock index is colored to contrast with the dial’s color. It’s a very intuitive way to read the month and a clever way of displaying it without adding clutter. The red color used to display the month is echoed in the triangle that indicates the GMT time, and it looks good in a different way with each of the dial colors: blue, white, black, and champagne on these new “Rolesor” Rolex Sky-Dweller watches.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Watches In Two-Tone Steel & Gold Hands-On Hands-On

The other aspect of the Rolex Sky-Dweller which is innovative is the patented Rolex Ring Command innovation that makes use of the bezel as a sort of multi-switch to allow only the crown to be used in order to change the time and the date. By turning the Rolex Sky-Dweller fluted bezel a quarter turn left until it clicks, the crown can now be used to quickly change the hour both forward and backward.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex SubmarinerTop 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists The lauded Rolex Submariner is one of the most popular luxury watches in the world. Easily the most popular steel-cased (or otherwise) luxury diving watch, the Rolex Submariner sets the bar in many ways when it comes to timepieces of its type, at its price point. PPWATCH has reviewed the Rolex Submariner here, offered a long-term review of the Rolex Submariner No Date watch here, and even compared the Rolex Submariner to its “cousin” watch the Tudor Heritage Black Bay here. With that said, the Rolex Submariner isn’t for everyone, and a lot of people who already have a Rolex Submariner still like the genre of high-end steel sports diving watches and are interested in other watches like it.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Let me first say that Rolex as a brand, and the Rolex Submariner as a model, are among the most copied things out there. Not only is there a vast underworld of fake (which we very much recommend against) Rolex watches, there are lots of “lookalike” timepieces out there which merely seek to emulate the look and feel of a Rolex Submariner for the benefit of another brand. Those aren’t the types of watches I’ll be talking about in this list. Oh, and I’d also like to say that all of the watches included in this top 10 list are being currently produced at the time of this article’s writing – but it is possible to find other stuff out there that is no longer in production.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

To kick-off a possible new article series, I’d like to list my personal top 10 alternatives to the Rolex Submariner that still exist within the design, quality, and overall luxury pricing of the Rolex Submariner. Further, I’d like to focus on dive watches that share a few important things in common with the Rolex Submariner. Those things, for our purposes, are 1) available steel or titanium case construction with matching bracelet, 2) high-quality mechanical movement, 3) time-only display (date optional), 4) mostly (or entirely) monochromatic design with dark colored dial, and 5) a sporty design that can be feasibly be dressed up for a more elegant or formal look.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Nothing can absolutely replace the Rolex Submariner, and in many ways the Rolex Submariner is the best of its kind when blending price, features, and quality. Also, Rolex has some of its own “alternatives” to the Submariner which arguably include the Rolex GMT-Master II, Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000, and the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller. I won’t mention those below, but you should know about these more “deep-diving” watches that Rolex produces which are technically Submariner alternatives as well (even though they arguably look very similar).

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Last, I would like to mention a few basic tech specs of the Rolex Submariner to keep in mind. The watch is 40mm wide in 904L steel, water-resistant to 300 meters, and has a wonderful matching bracelet that has a handy micro-adjust system for a more precise fit that can be adjusted on the fly. Rolex uses their own in-house-made movement which promise arguably class-leading performance, and the Rolex Submariner’s bezel is produced from ceramic. Current retail price for the steel Rolex Submariner 114060 “No Date” is $7,500, and the Rolex Submariner Date 116610 is$8,550.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms

Strengths: 45mm wide and with an in-house movement, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique 5015 (PPWATCH review here) collection has an available steel model with a matching bracelet and black dial that is thematically in the same category at the Rolex Submariner. It is expensive, but it is also well-made and beautiful.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

How it compares: With a heritage similar to the Rolex Submariner in terms of origin and purpose, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms currently exists a bit higher on the price ladder than the Rolex Submariner, even though it arguably isn’t a “better” watch. The Fifty Fathoms does have an attractive curved sapphire crystal over the bezel (versus ceramic), and which you prefer is a matter of taste. Blancpain’s has a different look that some say is a bit more on the elegant versus “tool watch” side. The Blancpain is also the more original choice with a higher price premium and far fewer of them out there.

Price: $14,500

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Tudor Heritage Black Bay

Strengths: Tudor is owned by the same people as Rolex (they are careful to say they are not owned by Rolex), so there is a lot of design and construction carry-over from “the crown” brand. Starting in 2016, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay (hands-on here) also has an in-house movement along with a handful of interesting design refinements. It is easily one of the best values around when comparing design, construction, and mechanics.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

How it compares: The Tudor Black Bay is slightly larger than the 40mm Rolex Submariner with a 41mm-wide steel case, and it is a bit thicker as well. Perhaps the biggest “down-side” is its aluminum bezel insert material versus the Rolex Submariner’s more durable ceramic – though you do get more interesting color options in the Heritage Black Bay, such as burgundy red. Solid dial design was historically inspired by the Rolex Submariner, so the differences are only slight, though noticeable.

Price: $3,675

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean

Strengths: Omega has spent decades refining and honing its Seamaster collection… which has actually resulted in a huge amount of variety. At the top of the ladder when it comes to fancy dive watches is the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, which combines the appeal of a serious diving tool with a good-looking lifestyle product. The Planet Ocean is just sober enough to not look showy, but it certainly has an impressive wrist presence and a lot of very attractive movements today.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists

How it compares: Comparing the Omega Planet Ocean to the Rolex Submariner really depends on the model since Omega makes not only different sizes, but different versions – and that applies even to just the three-hand automatic models (the image above shows the Planet Ocean Master Chronometer). There is no perfect 40mm-wide analog, but there are Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean models similar to the Rolex Submariner in terms of features and size. While Rolex still arguably wins when it comes to fit and finishing, Omega is clearly chasing Rolex when it comes to movement performance, dial and case construction, as well as overall popularity. It’s certainly worth a close look.

Price: Starting at around 5,700 CHF

Bulgari Diagono Scuba

Strengths: The newest generation Bulgari Diagono Scuba is the best Diagono diver watch made to date, offering an interesting Italian-theme to the idea of a Rolex Submariner alternative. Built on the Diagono family of watches, you see distinctive design elements such as the hinge-style lugs, bracelet, and dial design, which here is the cleanest we’ve ever seen it on a Diagono Scuba. It also happens to mix sportiness with elegance very well, just like the Rolex Submariner

How it Compares: The 41mm-wide Diagono Scuba is about the same width as the Rolex Submariner, and they have similar thickness profiles as well. On the wrist, they have a very different feel, even though they attempt to serve the same purposes. Both are 300-meter-water-resistant divers and contain in-house movements. The Bulgari Diagono Scuba doesn’t have a ceramic bezel (it uses an all steel design) but is an admirable and lower-priced Rolex Submariner alternative with a more modern, designer twist to it.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What may seem like a few minor design changes here and there actually mean a lot of serious firsts with the new-for-2017 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary model reference 126600, making this replacement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 one of the more important releases of Baselworld 2017.

First and foremost, let’s begin with the tech specs, as with this new reference 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller has received five major updates: first, it has grown from 40mm to 43 millimeters wide, making for a very considerable difference between the Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary and the Submariner (which is 40mm). Second, it received a cyclops over the date, a first for a Rolex Sea-Dweller and as controversial an update as the growth in size. Third, it is now powered not by the 3135 but the updated 3235 caliber (the same as the Datejust 41 reviewed here). Fourth, it has a redesigned bracelet that is now wider and makes for a more secure fit on the wrist. Last, but not least, it pays tribute to the original Sea-Dweller of 1967.

While in this regard the added width makes sense, the new-found cyclops – again, new for the Rolex Sea-Dweller altogether – arguably is an even more controversial decision. The Rolex Sea-Dweller, some argued, from the get-go should have been a larger alternative to the No-Date and Date Submariner models (instead, all three watches thus far had been 40mm wide) – but the cyclops, even Rolex admits, is a less obvious and more controversial addition.

A lesser-known fact is that the original Rolex Sea-Dweller of 1967 did not have a cyclops because when Rolex added it to the plexiglass front, it caused structural weaknesses in it and ultimately caused it to shatter before reaching the desired depth rating – and so the cyclops was omitted. The Rolex Sea-Dweller all until 2017 has maintained its cyclops-free looks, making yet another reason for it to be a Submariner alternative (as, clearly, not everyone is a fan of the cyclops-look). Now, in this regard, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is more in line with all other collections, with only the Deepsea now standing out from the rest, as it still does not have a cyclops over its date aperture.

The movement, as we have noted, is the new 3235, an automatic, fully Rolex-designed and -made caliber that complies with Rolex’s -2/+2 second daily accuracy (all details here) and offers an extended 70 hours of power reserve over the previous Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 48 hours. It, hence, features Rolex’s high-capacity mainspring barrel, its Chronergy escapement with paramagnetic nickel-phosphorous pallet fork and escape wheel, Paraflex shock absorbers, Parachrom hairspring, a large balance wheel with Microstella variable inertia lugs and an operating frequency of 4Hz. It is the latest and greatest tech-fest that Rolex can offer at the moment.

The new Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 904L Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterlock safety clasp, Fliplock extension system for an added 26mm of reach along with the Rolex Glidelock system for 2mm-increment fine adjustments over a distance of 20mm. Typical Rolex Sea-Dweller feats such as the black Cerachrom bezel with PVD-applied platinum numerals, flat front sapphire crystal and 1,220m of water resistance enforced by a helium escape valve inside the left side of the case (see its components below) remain present.

Available exclusively with a black dial with white gold hands and indices and Chromalight lume, the stand-out feature (if we can call it that) here is the red Sea-Dweller designation over the usual depth rating and COSC certification reminder.

Last year, when everyone was expecting a new Daytona, I don’t find it a stretch to say that many were looking forward to seeing something really quite close to the Newman Daytonas of old, or at least a perfect panda dial – and yet, Rolex has decided to tip-toe their way around that. A few years ago, the re-launch of the Pepsi-bezel GMT was also close to its predecessor but very clearly different in its colors than the original. Here, however, we are looking at a clear reference to one of the defining aesthetic elements of an early Rolex collection, making it a small change, but possibly a significant one to many Rolex fans.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Anyhow, the 43mm-wide Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 is the new and only Rolex Sea-Dweller in town from now on, as it fully replaces the 40mm-wide Sea-Dweller 4000. It looks bold and feels heavy on the wrist, but it carries that heft in a much more balanced manner when compared to how its predecessor had done.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What truly makes it an interesting step on Rolex’s part is how the new Rolex Sea-Dweller now blends more into the Rolex dive watch range with its cyclops fitted over its date, and how it stands out with its boldly different 43mm-wide diameter. In closing, it is worth imagining what this watch would have been like without the red text and the cyclops but everything as it is now – it would have made for a long-expected update bringing on better proportions and a larger alternative to those who have been on the lookout for something larger than a Submariner but not as bold as the Deepsea.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

As it stands now, however, it certainly cannot be called another safe step from Rolex – they admittedly made the controversial decision of not only considerably upping the size but also adding the cyclops, rendering this a truly new Rolex Sea-Dweller that offers more than a mere face-lift (and not just by Rolex standards). Price for the new Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 isCHF10,800 including tax.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610

WRIST TIME REVIEWS

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex is as much a lifestyle as it is a watch brand, but we feel that a hands-on Rolex Submariner review is still necessary as it is meant to be worn and used. The company is a legend, and their products are the cornerstone of an industry that sells dreams, status, quality and ideally, value. Whether or not individual entities in the luxury industry can deliver on these promises is a different story, but what makes Rolex so famous is its consistent ability to actually deliver these goals to a large degree. So today I look at probably the most popular Rolexproduct, the Rolex Submariner.

For review, I am looking at two Rolex Submariner models in steel. These represent the newest generation Rolex Submariner timepieces and are often referred to as the Rolex Submariner Date and Rolex Submariner No Date. The difference between them should be clear. One has a date window with magnifier over that window on the sapphire crystal, while the No Date has none of that for a cleaner looking dial. While the difference is minor, it is these little differences which are important to Rolex fans, and the price difference between the two is not inconsequential. UPDATE: Check our long-term Rolex Submariner 114060 watch review on aBlogtoWatch for even more.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

While I am very well-versed in all things “watches,” I don’t consider myself to be a Rolex expert compared to many people that I know. I have a basic understanding of the brand’s history, the evolution of its products, and what is appealing about watches like the Rolex Submariner. Other people have extremely detailed knowledge of each and every product, hard-to-find timepieces, differences in products as they evolves, etc… The purpose of this review is to discuss the modern Rolex Submariner to the mainstream watch lovers and those interested in why this is a worthy timepiece. In short, the Rolex Submariner started the dive watch craze that made those types of sport watches the most desirable type of timepiece on the planet – and with its crown logo, the Rolex Submariner thematically rules over the lot.

The Movement

Let me state now that the Rolex Submariner is not the most expensive, most durable, most complicated, or best looking high-end dive watch around. There are dozens of more expensive steel sport watches, and tons that can take much more of a beating. Rolex is also known for making very good, but simple movements (for the most part). Rolex mechanical movements have a reputation for being rather accurate, long-lived, and easy to work on. Many of the watch makers that I’ve spoken to voice positive sentiments in working on Rolex movements. Still, servicing a mechanical watch is not all that cheap.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Inside of these two Rolex Submariner models are two different movements (because one contains the date and the other doesn’t) but practically speaking they are more or less the same. The Rolex Submariner Date (Ref. 116610 AKA 116610LN) contains the in-house made Rolex caliber 3135 automatic movements, while the Rolex Submariner No Date contains the Rolex caliber 3130. Both of the movements feature Rolex’s newer Parachrom hairsprings and have a power reserve of about two days when fully wound. Rolex also has the majority of their watches (including all Rolex Submariner models) COSC Chronometer certified. The 3135 and 3130 are about as good as can be hoped for from relatively basic three-hand automatic movements. No one per se buys a Rolex for the movement, but at the same time, the movements don’t really leave much to be desired given the price and intended use. They are durable and mechanically sound – enough said.

The Design

Rolex claims to have invented the water-tight watch case with the Oyster. True enough, they did produce the first commercially noteworthy water resistant watch with the Oyster. For that reason you see the “Oyster” label on a lot of Rolex products, even though there isn’t a Rolex watch called the Oyster these days. It is a signifier that the watch is water resistant. Of course, the Rolex Submariner is more than just that. Originally designed as a commercial diver’s watch in the 1950s, the Rolex Submariner today has a water resistance of 300 meters and a design that is incredibly similar to the original. This design that mixes sport and professional looks is one of the key factors to the design’s success. The dial of the Rolex Submariner is clever, yet easy on the eyes. The black and white design is meant to offer a high contrast for easy reading of the time. The lumed indicators and hands are meant to make it easy to read in the dark. A different style of hour and minute hand are there for legibility, and a special character for the 12 o’clock indicator is meant to make it easy to mentally orient the dial when looking at it from the side.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex also uses 18k white gold on the dial for the hands and hour indicators. A few years ago Rolex switched from a green toned lumed to a blue one. This not only made the lume glow blue, but allows for it to look more white during the day. Rolex also increased the size of the hands and hour markers a few years ago when they introduced their “Maxi dial” style which I personally liked, but of course proved controversial. Every change the brand makes is controversial, even when they did something small such as removing the lug spring bar holes on the exterior of the case. The Rolex Submariner dial is a testament to legibility and functionality. The Rolex Submariner is a tool watch with a slick design that lasted the test of time. It is good because it was never design to be anything more than a good looking, legible dial. It is a tool, and we like tools that work well. Rolex also makes their own dials. Precision machining and printing on the dial is very good. When you look at a Rolex Submariner’s dial closeup, you’ll notice that the lume is evenly applied, and that everything is cut very well.

The Case

Even though the Rolex Submariner is a tool watch at heart, Rolex knows it is a luxury item today. So there are little things here and there meant for looks more than function. A good example is the sapphire crystal. Rolex applies a coat of AR on the bottom of the crystal, but not on the top. This allows for the top of the crystal to be reflective and sort of makes it more shiny to onlookers. This is arguably a design decision by Rolex to make their products stand out more. It works too. The Rolex Submariner case has changed very little over the years, but each improvement is welcome. The current size of the Rolex Submariner is 40mm wide, but it wears large for that size. This is because of the lug structure. I would say that the piece wears closer to a 42mm wide watch.

Rolex famously uses plain casebacks on its watches. The Rolex Submariner’s screw-in caseback is devoid of any markings. The watches I have for review were loaned from our friends at the Rolex boutique nearby in Beverly Hills. We agreed not to remove the protective plastic on the sides of case, which you’ll probably see in the pictures. There is also a type of bar code on the side of the case which is a serial identifier. That is removed when people buy the watch. Rolex uses a grade of steel called 904L. Most steel watches use 316L steel. The differences are minor, but involve more corrosion resistance in 904L steel from what I understand. So if your Rolex Submariner spends a lot of time in saltwater, then it will look better.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

It is widely known that Rolex is fanatical about their metal. They do a lot of metallurgy in-house, and not all steel of the same grade is made equal. I’ve seen a lot of steel watches in my time and can say that no one makes steel or polishes a case quite like Rolex – and they so do fantastically using high-tech machines in rather large production volumes. This isn’t about tiny details, but rather that the steel of a Rolex Submariner looks and feels a bit different than the steel of other watches. This is of course due in part thanks to Rolex’s amazing brushed finishing that is applied to much of the Rolex Submariner case. Other parts of the case (such as the sides) are given a polished finish. These “alternating finishes” help the case to look its best.

Around the dial is a rotating diver’s bezel which is more or less a standard element on the majority of dive watches. This bezel can be turned by your hand and gives you the ability to line up the 12 o’clock point with the minute hand to measure something that is up to 60 minutes long. This has a purpose while diving, but most people use it to measure short things like parking meters and cooking times while being an at-home chef. The bottom line is that even though the Rolex Submariner is a diver’s watch, a very small percentage of the people who own it dive. Why buy a dive watch then? Well it is really about an appreciation for what a dive watch can do and what it represents. Activity, durability and exploration. While we aren’t engaged in these things all the time, we like to keep capable items near us.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

The rotating bezel on the Submariner used to have an aluminum insert with the minute indicators printed on it, but a few years ago Rolex moved over to making ceramic bezels. This was a distinct upgrade and Rolex calls their ceramic “Cerachrom.” Sounds fancy right? The production process of the bezel include engraved numerals and lume. Some dive watches have lume in the entire bezel, but the Submariner is more traditional with a single lume point (pip) at 12 o’clock. The black ceramic bezel is shinier than aluminum, but is much more durable and very scratch resistant. Ceramic bezels are a wonderful thing. Among the various Rolex Submariner models available you can get ceramic bezels in black, blue, and green.

On the wrist, the Rolex Submariner is a very comfort friendly watch. Rolex has had literally decades to improve the design. It feels so natural on your wrist and for a dive watch it doesn’t have a very tall profile either. There is a good reason that many people choose the Rolex Submariner as a daily wear. Aside from being very comfortable, the Rolex Submariner has the added quality of looking good on most wrists. Plus, it has versatile style that seemingly works with everything from jeans and t-shirt to practically a tuxedo. Very few watches can claim that.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

The Bracelet

Rolex offered a significant bracelet upgrade for its newest generation Rolex Submariner models. The most important elements of the upgrade are the bracelet’s profile and ability to be micro-adjusted. More on that in a second. For years, the Rolex Submariner bracelet was a three-link tapering steel bracelet. Tapering means that the lugs get narrower closer to the deployant clasp. This actually helps the bracelet be more comfortable, and visually makes the case look a bit larger. Few brands make bracelets with tapering links because it increases the numbers of part types they need to produce to make them. Though I recommend tapering bracelets when they are available.

For many years, Rolex deployant clasps stuck out awkwardly under your wrist. With the newest generation bracelets, they offer a much more clean profile – which was a welcome improvement. A lot of people buy the Rolex Submariner over other Rolex watches because of its Glidelock adjustment system. The idea is that you can micro-adjust the size of the bracelet within a few millimeters on the fly. This means that as your wrist naturally expands, you can re-size the bracelet with ease, or increase the size of the bracelet to be worn over a jacket or dive suit. The design and comfort of the bracelet should not be under-estimated, nor should you ignore these elements as a major selling point behind this model of Rolex watch. Sadly Rolex doesn’t offer the Glidelock system with even similar watches such as the Explorer II – though you can get it in the beefier Deepsea models. As an interesting tangent, you should check out the spring-loaded system thatRolex/Tudor designed for the Pelagos here.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

The Value

Now it all comes down to cost in the end. For some people a Rolex Submariner is a cheap daily wear, but for many people it is an item of aspiration with a price in the several thousand dollars. Over the years, the price of Rolex Submariner watches has creeped up to rather ambitious levels. Rolex still sells them in large quantities. The good news is that unlike many luxury watches, Rolex timepieces tend to hold value very well, and that is especially the case with the Rolex Submariner. While you probably aren’t going to get rich buying one, you will likely be able to resell it for a price close to what you paid for it. That is good news for people who like to upgrade or switch watches every few years, or if you are in a financial pinch.

As I said, the Rolex Submariner Date and No Date models have two different prices attached to them. The difference in price has to do with the date complication and really depends on what you like. Though the roughly $1,000 difference is appreciable. Some people hate the “cyclops” magnifier on the dial and love the clean look of a simple dial. Others feel that it is only a real Rolex with the date window and crystal bubble. For the Rolex Submariner Date ref. 116610LN the price is$8,550, and the Rolex Submariner 114060 is retails for $7,500.

We also have same type, the price is lower a lot, if you are interested in, please feel free to contact us.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver ‘Funky Colour Edition’ Watches For 2017 Hands-On

At SIHH 2017, Swiss Audemars Piguet celebrated color – which is clearly the focus for these versions of the popular Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver 15710ST. The independent brand’s offerings are light on novelty but rich in hue, and known as the “Funky Colour Editions.” As such, the company is likely doing what is smart this year as they continue to navigate uncertain economic waters where pouring R&D money into totally new products can be seen as a bit unwise. Despite understanding this fact of necessary prudence, it makes being a watch blogger tough since we are always hungry for annual “newness.” With that said, Audemars Piguet continues to remind myself and colleagues that our desire for “all things Royal Oak” is by no means a new feeling.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver is probably the Audemars Piguet I’d want to next own. I developed a fondness for it back in 2010 when the Royal Oak Offshore Diver was first introduced. Since then, Audemars Piguet has released a number of versions in various case materials ranging from steel to forged carbon, and ceramic (see them all in our Royal Oak Offshoretopic page or search “Audemars Diver” on aBlogtoWatch). For 2017, the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver watches are all in steel, but celebrate a host of bold visual styles which echo other products already produced by the brand, as well as a color theme which you can find in other new-for-2017 Audemars Piguet watches such as the much more expensive Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph Selfwinding Limited Edition pieces.

Not that any of these watches are inexpensive, but if you are going to opt for a sporty timepiece in mostly electric green, my suspicion is that spending circa $20,000 (the Royal Oak Offshore Diver) feels a bit more appropriate for something that isn’t going to be a daily wear as compared to circa $300,000 for a pure collector’s piece (the Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph Selfwinding Limited Edition). Most people will likely err on the more conservative side and opt for the same watches in more “classic” colors offered by Audemars Piguet. Then again, if you live a lifestyle where you can pull-off one of these colorful Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Divers as your daily wear, then more power to you.

If you are an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fan and already have a few conservatively-colored Audemars Piguet models in your collection then adding one of these Funky Colour Editions is likely what Audemars Piguet feels you might want to do. The brand’s current strategy is clearly focused on the popularity of the Royal Oak, and part of that means selling more models to existing customers. Price for each of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Funky Colour Edition 15710ST watches is US $19,900.

Do you know the history of Rolex?

Do you know the history of Rolex?

Rolex is known for designing and creating watches specifically for special populations of sportsmen and adventurers. One example of this type of timepiece is the Rolex GMT Master wristwatch. As the flight industry began to really take off in the 1940s and 1950s, pilots began flying longer distances. Originally designed in collaboration with Pan Am Airways, the Rolex GMT Master was initially created for Pan AM, and issued by them to their crews on long-haul flights. The key feature of the watch was that the wearer could tell different times simultaneously. The original GMT Master watch has a 24 hour display fourth hand complication directly linked to and displaying the same time zone as the standard 12 hour hand. The GMT hand enables the wearer to set the watch to GMT or any other time zone for the main time view, then set the rotatable 24 hour scale bezel to a second time zone. The name GMT is derived from Greenwich Mean Time. Greenwich Mean Time is also known as Coordinated Universal Time, and is the time zone that is required for all aviation planning, weather forecasts, and schedules.

The first GMT Master model was issued with ref. 6542, and was a regular Turn-O-Graph ref. 6202. It was produced from 1954-1959, and was pressure proof up to 50 meters (165 feet). The first version of the ref. 6542 had a luminous bakelite bezel insert. However, this bezel soon proved unacceptable, as it easily cracked. Thus, a new metal bezel was introduced in 1956. The first GMT Master is also fondly nicknamed the “Pussy Galore,” as it was famously worn by “Pussy Galore” (actress Honor Blackman) in the James Bond film Goldfinger in 1964.

In 2005, Rolex released an updated version of the Rolex GMT Master II. The new model features a number of technical changes. Utilizing technology from other designs, Rolex added a larger Triplock crown, originally featured on their divers’ watches. Rolex also utilized their patented Parachrom hairspring. Aesthetically, the new model changed slightly. Featuring a larger case and a new look for the hands and hour markers gave the GMT Master II a fresh, new look. A new bezel, made from extremely hard ceramic material that is designed to be more scratch and fade resistant, was also added. The style of bracelet also changed, incorporating a mix of stainless steel and precious metal.
