Rolex Sea-Dweller Oyster 43 mm Oystersteel 126600

First, let’s start with the technical specifications, with the new reference number 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller gets five major updates: first of all, it increases its width from 40 mm to 43 mm, which makes a huge difference between the Rolex Sea-Dweller. -resident 50th anniversary and the Submariner (40mm long). Secondly, it received the Cyclops on that day, a first for the Rolex Sea-Dweller and controversial as it grew in size. Third, it is now powered not by the 3135, but by the newer 3235 movement (the same as the Datejust 41 reviewed here). Fourth, its bracelet has been redesigned and is now wider for a more secure fit on the wrist. Last but not least, it pays homage to the original 1967 sea dwellers.

All of this, of course, would seriously change the look of the Rolex Sea-Dweller Oyster 43 mm Oystersteel 126600 . The larger case and bracelet could be made more proportionate by matching the larger diameter case to the existing thickness – arguably a bit out of proportion with the 40mm width of the previous 116600. Keep in mind that the thickness (no official figures yet, but check that water resistance to 4,000ft / 1,220m is required.
While adding width makes sense in this regard, the newly discovered Cyclops (once again, brand new to the Rolex Sea-Amateur) is arguably the more controversial decision. Some have argued that the Rolex Sea-Dweller should have been a replacement for the No-Date and Date Submariner models from the start (instead, all three have been 40mm wide so far) – but even the Cyclops is, as Rolex admits, a less obvious and more controversial addition.

The little known fact is that the original 1967 Rolex Sea Dweller did not have a Cyclops because when Rolex added it to the Plexiglas front, it created a structural weakness and eventually broke it until it reached the required depth rating – hence the omission of the Cyclops. Up until 2017, the Rolex Sea-Dweller remained Cyclops-free, making it yet another reason for the Submariner replacement (apparently, not everyone likes the Cyclops look). Now, for that matter, the Rolex Sea Watch is more in line with all the others, with only the Deepsea standing out among the others because it still doesn’t have a small ring for the date range.
As we’ve already noted, the movement is the new 3235, a self-winding caliber entirely designed and manufactured by Rolex itself, which conforms to Rolex’s -2 / + 2 second daytime accuracy (all the details here) and offers 70 hours of power reserve over the previous Rolex Submarine Chronograph 48 hours. Thus, it features a Rolex large-capacity barrel, Chronergy escapement with paramagnetic nickel-phosphorus escapement fork and escapement wheel, Paraflex shock absorber, Parachrom hairspring, large balance with Microstella variable inertia lugs, and an operating frequency of 4Hz.

Rolex Pearlmaster Oyster 34 mm Everose gold and diamonds 81285

While the Rolex Pearlmaster is often considered a ladies’ watch (often referred to as the “Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster” in smaller cases), this new 39mm wide model does have a distinctly feminine feel to it, but for me the fact will appeal to watchmakers around the world! Male customers. For this reason, I feel uncomfortable wearing what is essentially a woman’s watch, at least for some customers, and good enough for men. Of course, this is an interesting phenomenon because most women’s watches are actually smaller versions of men’s watches, and vice versa.

As far as I know, every Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster watch has some type of jeweled decoration (at least, that I’ve seen). This series seems to be the “official” or decorative version of the Rolex Pearlmaster Oyster 34 mm Everose gold and diamonds 81285. The series of Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster watches started with a compact version of 29mm, with a maximum width of 34mm, and is now 39mm. They each share a special type of bracelet that is certainly more “jewel-like” than most other Rolex bracelets. Rolex refers to this five-strand bracelet as the “Pearlmaster” and it is very smooth and comfortable to move and wear.
The 2015 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster 39 watch collection shares many similarities with another new 2015 Rolex launch. Both the Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster 39 and the new Rolex Day-Date 40 watch (hands-on use here) boast the fact that they are the first watches to include ceramic inserts in a gold bracelet (more on that later). As well as the 3235 series movement. The Rolex Day-Date 40 watch contains the Rolex 3255 automatic movement instead of the 3235, but as far as I can tell, the only major difference is the addition of the day of the week indicator dial in the 3255, while the 3235 has the time and date.
So let’s discuss sports. I actually recommend that anyone interested in sports read our discussion above about the 2015 Rolex Day-Date 40 watch. I claim these watches are probably the best timepieces Rolex has produced to date. What makes the 3235 movement different is its focus on accuracy. In addition to the standard COSC chronograph ratings provided for each individual movement, Rolex now employs its own series of tests to ensure accuracy and reliability over time – they call it the Rolex Chronograph Test.

Rolex Explorer Oyster 42 mm Oystersteel 216570

The Rolex Explorer II, reference number 216570, along with the Submariner, GMT Master and Datejust, make up Rolex’s most popular watch. As with the other models, the Explorer model is from the late 1950s. Unlike the other models, it has two current models that are both popular and very different. The first model, the Rolex Explorer, is 39mm in diameter and is closest to the original version, while the Explorer II is 42mm in diameter and is more suited to modern Rolex Explorer Oyster 42 mm Oystersteel 216570 tastes. In this article, I will review the latter model. While any model of the Rolex Explorer can be used as a sturdy tool watch, for this review I did not take it on a mountain trekking trip, but rather a modern exploration. My account is based on the fact that it spent a month traveling through Asia, exploring a distant land, an ancient people, and a fascinating culture

For starters, the Rolex Explorer was one of the first watches designed for adventure, especially when it came to exploring new lands and different terrains. Today, the Casio ProTrek or a similar solar-powered multi-function watch will serve you well on far-flung treks, and in the 1950s and early 1960s, real exploration of the poles and the world’s high peaks took place, but without quartz watches. Even today, if you’re attempting to explore Earth’s poles or climb Mt. Everest, a Rolex Explorer may still be a better choice than a quartz device, as they suffer from exposure to heat and cold and rely on an external power source. However, the Rolex Explorer II is guaranteed to work even in extreme temperature gradients and without power, except when worn and slightly moved (or the crown tightened) on a daily basis.
So, on my own Rolex Explorer II adventure, instead of taking it to extreme conditions, I took it on some sort of typical modern travel journey that included airports, business meetings, business excursions, gyms, and visits to the outdoors in far-flung places. In all cases, the Rolex Explorer II never felt out of place.
At the airport, the first step was to set the local time and local time to PDT. when the plane took off, we used the quick set function on the hour hand to indicate Beijing time, I just pulled the crown and moved it forward about 8 time zones in China. Interestingly, unlike many large countries, China has a time zone! Whether you are in the east or west of China, there is only one. While I imagine the Chinese get very different time of year experiences, I think it makes it easy for them to do business, depending on which country they live in.

One of the great things about Rolex sports watches (especially the modern versions) is that they tend to be multi-functional. That is to say, they’re perfect for both business and leisure situations, as well as the sporting environments for which they’re designed. As a result, I don’t really need to use any other watch during my month-long visits and the organization of various meetings at all levels. The Rolex Explorer II fits the bill perfectly.

Rolex Explorer Oyster 39 mm Oystersteel 214270

im sympathetic to those who have picked up a Rolex Explorer I 214270. Beyond those who “got it” simply because they, understandably, fell for its handsome looks, there are also those super-thoughtful Explorer I customers who have done a fair bit of research before buying their first (or next) Rolex. They have looked at the Submariner and Submariner Date, as well as the Oyster Perpetual, the two collections that flank the Explorer I both price- and feature-wise. I can relate to those who end up with the Explorer I 214270, but I am, nevertheless, not quite sure that this is the watch I’d purchase, were I shopping for an affordable Rolex today.
You’ll find cyclops fans, maxi-case haters, Cerachrom ceramic Rolex Explorer Oyster 39 mm Oystersteel 214270 bezel naysayers and believers, OP (that’s Oyster Perpetual for us mortals) value proposition preachers, fact sheet comparers, and the list goes on and on. I could fill an entire article, or perhaps a whole book, with the psychological struggles one experiences when looking for the best Rolex watch to put hard-earned money into.

I’ll add that, fortunately, value retention is pretty stellar with steel Rolex watches these days, so even if you realize your choice wasn’t the right one for you, chances are you can get out of it having not lost more than a few hundred bucks. But the goal here is to help you figure out whether or not the Rolex Explorer I 214270 is the watch for you.
The Rolex Explorer I 214270 is, essentially, a mix of the Oyster Perpetual 39 and the Submariner “No Date” in terms of case, bezel, dial, bracelet, and movement. This neatly leads us to the point I began with, that in terms of both price and features, many think they will end up with the best of both worlds if they go with the Explorer I.

It essentially has the 39mm Oystersteel monobloc middle-case of the OP with a profile that is slightly more curvaceous than the flat, trapezoid profile of the 40mm Oystersteel Submariner. The bezel of the Explorer I is different on each: The OP has a domed, high-polish bezel, while the Explorer I has what Rolex calls a “Smooth” bezel; it is just as nicely polished, but has a flat surface, rather than the convex bezel of the OP. There is no Cerachrom anywhere on the Explorer I, which means you’ll certainly end up with at least some swirls on your steel bezel, but you’re definitely exempt from the fear of cracking your Cerachrom bezel insert. Water resistance in the Explorer I is a perfectly ample 100 meters, as opposed to the 300-meter rating of the Submariner. As I am sure you have already noticed, this really is going to be a game of trade-offs.
The movement inside the Rolex Explorer I 214270 is the Rolex Caliber 3132, the same as in the Oyster Perpetual 39. The only main difference I can find between this and the 3130 in the Submariner “No Date” is that the Explorer and OP both have the “high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers,” while, strangely, the Submariner, with its professional diver’s watch pedigree, does not. You’ll see the Rolex Explorer’s Paraflex shock absorber on the image below. While they all, like every Rolex watch made today, come with the Superlative Chronometer -2/+2 second daily accuracy rating and 5-year international warranty, the OP, Explorer I and Submariner all have 48 hours of power reserve, much less than the 70+ hour extended power reserve that is present with the new-generation Rolex movements dubbed 32xx. More on this in a bit.
The dial of the Rolex Explorer I 214270 now features the blue Chromalight display — essentially BGW9 luminescent material, the sort that lasts longer than the much more common Super-LumiNova C3, but isn’t quite as bright right after it’s been charged with a powerful light source. I much prefer the long-lasting blue hue of Chromalight to the temporary light show of the Super-LumiNova, as seen on Panerais and others.

Rolex Deepsea Oyster 44 mm Oystersteel 126660

The Rolex Deepsea is the largest watch in Rolex’s current collection, hence the name “Beast”. I find that, unlike many big brands, it’s hard to find enthusiasts who think the Deepsea is simply “good”. Usually it’s a love-hate replica rolex watches relationship, which is what makes the watch so unique in the catalogue. Basel has had so much hype about Pepsi and Root Beer this year that Deepsea’s update in the Much attention has been paid to it – admittedly, largely due to the model’s lack of any comprehensive aesthetic changes or significant developments.

In addition, the Oysterlock’s clasp size has been adjusted accordingly and is still fine-tuned in 2mm increments – overall! A more comfortable experience for the watch on the wrist. The appearance of a larger wrist might be read as “less elegant”, but on the wrist it looks cleaner and more practical without compromising the elegance of the watch. . Although, I think it takes a very trained eye for someone to notice the difference even if they don’t have it tied to their wrist. The Rolex “redesigned” the lugs-AKA to give them an extremely small rounded taper, while continuing to use the 44mm stainless steel case.

Continuing with the 44mm stainless steel case, Rolex “redesigned” the lugs – Rolex Deepsea Oyster 44 mm Oystersteel 126660 AKA – so that they have an extremely small rounded cone. and small size adjustment. The lugs are about a millimeter thinner than previous versions of the watch. With this in mind, the bracelet has been enlarged by about a millimeter and has also tapered to fit.

The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue is a Rolex ( The Rolex dive watch is the highest performance dive watch and the largest among the thickest (17.7mm) and widest (44mm wide) cases. The. It has an Oyster bracelet and is made of 904L steel. The back of the watch is made of titanium and has a number of features that provide great water resistance, such as a ring lock system and a dial that The 5 mm thick sapphire crystal.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Oyster 40 mm yellow gold 116518LN

This wasn’t always the case with the Rolex Daytona. To fully understand how the watch reaches this point. We must look to the past. There is no need for a watch when.
The Daytona proudly displays a map of the universe on its dial, which many consider a tribute to space. However, despite the watch into space was still chosen as a contender. Daytona never really made it to that point.

The Daytona is the only Rolex watch to outsource a movement from the iconic Zenith Elprimero. Despite all the decline, it remains somehow the most collectible Rolex in the world. Along with Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Oyster 40 mm yellow gold 116518LN the 5711 Patek Philippe Nautilus, it is one of the two most collectible watches in the world.

Since its introduction in 1963, the Rolex Daytona has earned a reputation in the luxury watch world as a Legendary status. Named after the Daytona International Speedway track in Florida and designed to meet the needs of professional race car drivers, the watch is considered to be Iconic fashion accessories, thanks in large part to actor Paul Newman, who He died in 2008, having worn a Daytona watch almost every day between 1972 and 2002.

Due to high demand and limited production, Daytona also has a lengthy waiting list, which helps deepen its mystique. It also makes it popular among grey market buyers who are able to get hold of one of these more quickly. This buying guide details the Daytona collection and the various options available.
Rolex Daytona watches are equipped with a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. This allows them to display the time and measure elapsed time, and to be used as both a cheap rolex watches stopwatch and a traditional watch. To this end, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona has three subdials at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The 6 o’clock position shows the seconds elapsed, the 3 o’clock position shows a maximum of 30 minutes elapsed and the 9 o’clock subdial shows a maximum of 12 minutes elapsed. hours. They are also COSC-certified chronometers to ensure their accuracy.

In addition, Daytona is known for its tachymeter scale on the bezel, which can be used to determine the time of day based on the driving time. Measure speed or measure distance based on speed. However, it’s worth noting that not all Daytona models since the product line was expanded have actually had the had this tachymeter scale.
Waiting list.

Rolex Datejust Oyster 41 mm Oystersteel and yellow gold 126303

Rolex has provided some very classic interpretations of its most advanced Rolex Datejust model to date, bringing the classic back to the modern day in a watch with a “green stamp”. What is the Green Seal, you ask? This is the unofficial and official title of Rolex’s new internal certification, which most people simply refer to as the “top-class chronometer”.
Let me take a moment to talk about the Rolex Green Rolex Datejust Oyster 41 mm Oystersteel and yellow gold 126303 Seal and the new in-house caliber 3235 inside the Rolex Datejust 41 series. Back in February, aBlogtoWatch first showed the official announcement that the Rolex watch would establish a new -2 / + 2 accuracy rating threshold and a five-year warranty for the entire range of movements. Rolex more or less uses its historic term “Superlative Chronometer”, which means that Rolex’s internal certification process produces watches with the Rolex Green Seal. Reasonable?

The 3235 movement is very similar to the new Rolex 3255 caliber that was introduced last year with the Rolex Day-Date 40 (hands-on here). In fact, the series of updates and improvements on the Rolex Datejust 41 are very similar to those on the Rolex Day-Date 40 “President”. However, if you want the Rolex Day-Date 40, you can currently only use the watch that is only available in a precious metal case, while the Rolex Datejust 41 was introduced as a two-tone model for about a third of the price of the Rolex Day-Date. 40, which is a killer timepiece.
The Rolex 3235 movement contains the new Rolex Chronergy escapement as part of a regulation system that runs at 4Hz, and the movement has a 70-hour power reserve and is very accurate. The 3255 and 3235 are undoubtedly the most exquisite movements Rolex has ever produced. Functionally, the real difference between the Rolex Day-Date 40’s caliber 3255 and the Rolex Datejust 41’s caliber 3235 is the number of weeks in the latter.
The Rolex Datejust 41 is 41mm wide and has the same width dimensions as the Rolex Datejust II model that will begin replacement. The Rolex Datejust II was introduced a few years ago and is the “modern size” big brother of the original Rolex Datejust, only 36mm wide. Consumers like the larger size of the Rolex Datejust II, but some critics have complained about certain design improvement issues, such as the too-small crown and other matters related to aesthetic proportions. Just like the Rolex Day-Date 40 fixes those problems with the Rolex Day-Date II, the Rolex Datejust 41 elegantly improves the Rolex Datejust II into a modern size Rolex Datejust worthy of the Rolex we get from Rolex.
While all 2016 Rolex Datejust 41 watches are diatonic (we expect an all-steel model in the future), there are several models available, including steel and 18k gold and steel and 18k rose gold. . Smooth polished and fluted bezel options are also available, as well as a triple-link Rolex Oyster bracelet and a new Rolex Jubilee bracelet, a modern-sized men’s Rolex that I haven’t seen in a while.

Personally, I’m a blonde guy, so my favorite model is the Rolex Datejust 41 Ref. 126333 on the Jubilee bracelet, with alarm markings and a champagne-colored cheap rolex watches dial. It is only a non-sporty Rolex watch and should be a stunning classic interpretation of everything used by men. I’m not ashamed to say that I’m in love with the all-steel Rolex Cosmograph Daytona at the same price point.
What makes me happy is that despite the subtle changes, Rolex offers a greater variety of models in both size and style. At its longest, Rolex watches were too large to reach 40mm wide. Today, you can get modern Rolex models in sizes 39, 40, 41, 42 and 44 mm wide. The refined lugs on the Rolex Datejust 41 make the watch comfortable and blend perfectly with the bracelet.

Rolex Cellini Time: the dress code watch for a return to the crown

When we think of Rolex, we think of sporty models like the Submariner, or dressy models like Datejust and Day-Date, but remember, Rolex has a line of luxury dress watches in its Cellini collection.

At Baselworld 2014, Rolex has just announced three new Cellini models, which were hinted at earlier this week. The Rolex Cellini has new dimensions, a new case, and cheap rolex cellini watches even some new movements for Rolex.

The Rolex Cellini Time, announced today, is an elegant expression of the traditional three-hand watch, with central seconds, minutes and hour hands. The Cellini collection also includes Cellini Date (with date) and Cellini Dual Time, with two time zone complications and day/night indicators. In this article, I will focus only on Cellini Time, which is the most basic and traditional of the three models.
Traditionally, Cellini models are rarely shared with the brethren of Rolex sports and dress watches. They use different cases, dials and earphones. However, when we read the specs, the pioneering innovation of the 3135 movement has returned to the movement used in the 2014 Cellini collection. It is worth noting that this is a self-winding movement with a blue Parachrom hairspring winding in a Breguet, at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz), with 31 rubies.

The new models are increased in size to 39mm. new models are equipped with a double bezel with a groove and then a domed shape. The crown is a tapered, fluted ornament that screws into the case to help it reach a 50-meter water resistance rating, although these Cellini models (as always) are among the few Rolex watches without an Oyster case. The rear cover is a hemispherical rear cheap rolex watches cover with a notch, reminiscent of some models in Rolex history. The lugs have more in common with the Datejust’s than the Cellini Cestello or Cellini Prince. There’s no doubt that this new collection looks as if Rolex has borrowed from the best in their history in these elegant timepieces, and further attempts to show consumers tuxedos or formal wear watches for very formal occasions.

This series really struck a chord with me. I am very fond of vintage works and the history behind them. The Rolex Cellini Time feels like it was created by a manufacturer who knows their history and treats it with reverence. Interestingly, the minute track is not on the edge of the dial, but divides the hour markers in two. I’m not sure I like the dial markings by minute track. If the marker is not that long, or the minute trajectory is not that far from the edge, the pointer may be too short. When implemented, the minute hand reaches the minute track and the hour hand reaches the hour mark and feels even.

All the elements of this watch are elegant, classic, and almost aristocratic. I can’t help but compare it to Datejust and think, “This is what Datejust looks like when he grows up.” The lugs aren’t much different, the bezel is narrow, allowing more of the dial to be stared at. I think 39mm is the perfect size, and by today’s standards it’s not too big or too small.

The Rolex Cellini Time is available in 18k white gold or Everose gold, and the dial and hands are matched. For example, if you have the Cellini Time in 18k white gold, it will come with a white or black dial with 18k white gold markers and 18k white gold hands. The crocodile leather strap comes with a matching 18k white gold buckle. If you don’t like white gold, you can opt for the 18k Everose yellow gold case with 18k rose gold hands and markers and an 18k Everose buckle on the alligator leather strap. The Everose version is available with a black alligator leather strap.

Rolex Cellini 39 mm 18 ct Everose gold polished finish 50535

The Rolex Cellini collection has a history dating back to the 1960s, but was re-imagined as recently as 2014. Named after the Italian Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini, the line fuses classic aesthetics and precious materials with modern technology. Today, it is the brand’s main collection of true formal dress watches.

At Baselworld 2017, Rolex unveiled a brand new addition to cheap rolex air king watches the Cellini family, in the form of the Cellini Moonphase, which, as the name suggests, displays the different phases of the lunar cycle. Here, we take a closer look at the latest addition and examine what else it has to offer.

Water resistance is guaranteed for 50 meters, or 165 feet, while the watch has a 48 hour power reserve.

In terms of materials, the Ref. 50535 features an 18k Everose gold case, which measures 39mm in diameter. The model’s hands and indices, meanwhile, are made from pink gold, and the strap is made from brown alligator leather. Finally, in a first for the Cellini collection, the folding Crownclasp is also crafted from 18k Everose gold.


Visually, the Cellini Moonphase has much in common with other releases in the collection since 2014. However, its defining aesthetic feature is the presence of a moonphase indicator at the 6 o’clock position, which cycles through the eight different stages of the lunar cycle, Rolex Cellini 39 mm 18 ct Everose gold polished finish 50535 showing both the full moon and new moon.

The watch has a white lacquer dial, providing a very clean appearance, while the date is displayed around the circumference of the dial, indicated by a fourth central hand, which is distinguished from the hour, minute and second hands by its blue color and crescent moon-shaped tip.
The Cellini Moonphase Ref. 50535 is powered by an in-house self-winding mechanical movement, the Calibre 3195, which is Superlative Chronometer certified, guaranteeing precision to -2/+2 seconds per day, after casing. The moonphase indicator is also said to be astronomically accurate for more than 120 years.

Rolex Air-King Oyster 40 mm Oystersteel 116900

the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King was gone – did you notice that? We are sure many of you did, at the least, when we covered its replacement, the 2015 Oyster Perpetual at BaselWorld last year… But worry not, if you missed its brief absence, as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is back for Baselworld 2016, and in a few interesting ways. While it may not have the sex appeal or luxury cache as pieces like the new Rolex Daytona or Rolex Datejust 41, it’s actually been more of a surprise for a few of us, as it is not exactly something we would have expected to see from Rolex.
To begin with, Rolex traditionally changes and updates only when they feel it’s truly necessary – and the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is no exception to that commendable rule. One complaint that was arguably more frequently levied against the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King was that the 34mm wide case version it was offered in were just “not large enough” for contemporary trends. Well, instead of just releasing an “upsized” model, Rolex dropped the old model, and two years later released a fresh new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King that addressed that issue and brings one of the more entry level models in the Rolex line-up back with a much welcomed 40mm-wide case.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is re-debuted with just one version with a black dial. While at 40mm-wide, its case design is virtually the same as the Rolex Milgauss, its dial sports basically the same polished 3-6-9 indices as the Rolex Explorer I before Rolex updated it for this year. It is an interesting mixture, that is for sure.
Though, what is a truly unusual design decision to come from Rolex is the one that resulted in a mix of hour and minute markers on the same scale. Rolex is rightfully proud of its amazing history of tried and proven tool watch designs that have made it to the deepest and highest spots on our planet. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King with this dial design is one that appears to be a bit of a misfit in that range of tool watches.
It would be difficult to deny that reading only hour or only double-digit minute markers (or just simply baton indices) on a dial is considerably easier than seeing single-digit hours at some places, and minute markings at others. While I am sure it is something that one could get used to pretty quickly, as a concept, it looks and reads somewhat confusing at first – even if the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King’s time-only functionality and overall good legibility otherwise leave little room for confusion.
