Five Luxury Brand Logos Ruined Perfectly Good Watches

There’s a piece of pop culture folklore that says that when you retire, your employers give you a party and a gold watch. Now, if you were born after 1980, this concept seems like a quaint anachronism from some halcyon economic boom time, where job security was real and employers rewarded long service. But, trust us, we’ve watched Mad Men, back in the day this was actually a thing. And often the watches were personalised with the company logo. In the business, these fake rolex watches are known as ‘presentation dials’, because, you know, they were presented to someone. And this is where things get weird/awesome. Supermarkets and fast food chains are about as far away from fine Swiss watchmaking as is possible to imagine, and yet, these dials happened. All the time. We tracked down a couple that may make you feel outright queasy, or hungry, depending entirely on you. While they might not have the same cachet a dial with Tiffany & Co. or COMEX written on it, they do have some interest. 10 Past Ten’s Eric Ku says “While they’re not particularly rare, these watches are interesting. The logo and nostalgia factor are cool though. When it comes to value I feel that they will appreciate over time, but will always appeal more to Americana lovers than watch collectors.”

Cheap Fake Rolex Air-King with ‘Domino’s’ dial


One of the least likely logos to show up on a Rolex watch is that of pizza franchise Domino’s. For many, the pizza chain logo on the dial is the epitome of tack – though it does lead to some excellent puns about pizzas being delivered in 30 minutes or less. To find out the story about these watches we found Mark Marshall, an actual Domino’s franchisee and proud owner of a Domino’s Air-King. Marshall explains that these watches, which have been around since the early ’60s, are part of a Domino’s incentive policy called ‘The Rolex Challenge’. “Franchisees have to be general managers for a year. Most franchisees and general managers start as drivers or customer service representatives so the Domino’s Rolex is usually the first or only nice watch we get. It doesn’t matter if collectors like them, the vast majority will never be sold.” So the next time you dismiss these watches as another example of kitsch Americana, consider the hard work it took someone to earn it.

Omega Replica watches with ‘Dunlop’ dial

This one goes out to anyone that’s ever owned a pair of Dunlop Volley sneakers. This nice little 9ct gold dress watch was given to one E.A. Hurcombe to recognise 25 years of loyal service, way back in 1975. And as far as logos go it’s quite discreetly and tastefully done.

Rolex Air-King with ‘Winn-Dixie’ dial


Winn-Dixie is a supermarket chain from the American south, and this Air-King would have presented to one of their driver’s after a decade of hauling produce around without incident. I can’t image Coles or Woolworth’s ever recognising their employees’ loyalty in such a cool way.

Rolex Air-King with ‘Coca-Cola’ dial


Usually when Rolex fans talk about their ‘Pepsi’ and ‘Coke’, they’re talking about the bezel on their GMT. This Coca-Cola watch is a lot more literal, being given to a company employee for a quarter century of hard work. Oh, and if you’re wondering why three out of these five watches are Air-Kings it’s because for most, Rolex is synonymous with quality, and the Air-King has traditionally been the entry point into the collection.

Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute with ‘Porco Rosso’ dial

I’ve saved the most intriguing watch for last. It’s a 2001 Brietling Navitimer Cosmonaute with a seaplane from Hayao Miyazake’s 1992 animated film Porco Rosso on the dial. All I know about this watch is that it was released in an edition of 300. But why? Was it to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the film? Was it an official Breitling release for the Japanese market, or was it a special commission? No one’s really sure, and that’s what makes it so cool.

The new Rolex Datejust 41 from Baselworld 2016 (Part 2)

Several fields of researches accept been implemented in the 32xx series, including the burning of energy, its renewing and its accumulator and assuredly the precision.

A new blazon of escapement, the Chronergy beat – an optimized adaptation of the Swiss batten escapement, the accepted beat acclimated in automated watches. The array of the bassinet stones has been bargain by bisected while the acquaintance surfaces of the escape caster teeth accept been doubled. The beat arrangement is no best in alignment but hardly offset, appropriately adding the batten effect. The escape caster has a cut-out architecture to accomplish it lighter and abate its inertia. Together, these modifications to the geometry accept added the ability of the beat by 15%, accidental to about bisected of the accretion in the ability reserve.

An able accessory alternation (the alternation of auto transmitting the activity from the butt to the escapement) – The ability of the accessory alternation has been optimized. Rolex has aswell developed, and synthesizes in-house, complete new high-performance lubricants with a best advantageous activity and greater adherence over time – As a result, beneath frictions (which could potentially apathetic the movement) and a greater believability over the years.

A high-capacity butt – Afterwards accretion the admeasurement of barrel, Rolex able to admit a best base (for 10h added ability reserve). This was acquired by authoritative the walls of the barrels thinner – attainable with avant-garde assembly processes.


A new self-winding module, for a for added accelerated ambagious of the new high-capacity mainspring. The rotor is now alternating on ball-bearings and its new monobloc actualization added its acceleration and appropriately the activity transmitted to the barrel.

Overall, the Calibre 3235 consumes about 30% beneath activity and accumulated with the beyond mainspring, it boasts 70 hours of ability reserve. Apart from these new elements, the 3235 actualization the accepted delicacies of the brand: dejected Parachrom hairspring (resistant to alluring fields), centralized high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, ample antithesis caster with capricious apathy adapted with four gold Microstella basics and absorbed to a angular arch instead of a acceptable erect arch (more aggressive to shocks). Finally, the all-embracing finishing has been improved, with bevelled bridges, annular graining, jewels in gold chatons and added data that accomplish this movement bigger searching (even it can been seen, as accepted with the “Crown”).

The Superlative Anxiety certification

Finally comes the new Superlative Anxiety certification. The ascendancy action of Rolex has been redefined in 2015. Agenda that the watches produced by Rolex still abide the COSC action but as of now, the watches are activated a additional time by Rolex afterwards getting cased, in the brand’s own laboratories, according to Rolex own criteria, which are added acrimonious than watchmaking norms and standards (understand COSC). These tests are agitated out on ceremony absolutely accumulated watch, afterwards case the movement, in acclimation to agreement achievement on the wrist.

In accession to this bigger precision, the Superlative Anxiety acceptance aswell implies a new 5-year agreement on your Rolex.


Concluding words about the new Rolex Datejust 41

Without absolutely renewing the abstraction of the “large Datejust”, Rolex brings with this new Datejust 41 a abysmal adapt of its iconic accidental watch – placed appropriate in the average amid dress and sports watches, as getting wearable in every individual situation. If the all-embracing attending charcoal acutely abutting to the Datejust 2, this 2016 copy is absolutely new.

The new Calibre 3235 is of advance added than acceptable and because all the improvements it features, it assuredly brings Rolex into avant-garde ages – the 3135 is an able and reliable movement but its apperception was rather old. The best comes if talking about price. Because the new movement, you’d apparently except Rolex to access acutely the prices… which is not the case, as a Datejust 2 ref. 116333 (Yellow Rolesor, channelled bezel and ability bracelet) was priced at 10,700 Euros vs. 11,650 Euros for the Rolex Datejust 41 ref. 126333 (Yellow Rolesor, channelled bezel BUT with the big-ticket Ceremony bracelet).

The new Rolex Datejust 41 from Baselworld 2016 (Part 1)

To say that some of the watches bogus by Rolex are icons would be absolutely an understatement. The bearings is rather clear: about all the archive can be alleged iconic. This goes for the diving Submariner, the afflicted Day-Date, the antagonism anxiety Daytona, the adventurous Explorer or just the simple “entry-level” Ability Perpetual. However, there’s accession one, hardly added underrated but apparently the one with the richest history – or at atomic the longest – the Datejust. We knew that Rolex was about to amend its figure (see our predictions) and actuality it is: the new Rolex Datejust 41 from Baselworld 2016, with new case, new 3235 movement and advance of the Ceremony armlet (something we aswell predicted).

Short History of the Rolex Replica watches of  Datejust

Don’t attending at the Rolex Datejust as just a 3-hand watch with a date window at 3. It’s abundant added than that. It is in actuality an historically important watch, as it was, if alien in 1945 (for the 40th ceremony of Rolex), beneath the ref. 4467, the aboriginal wristwatch with date displayed in a window and quick date mechanism. This watch is in actuality the one that invented today’s a lot of accepted affection of a watch. It ability be rather accidental for abounding but it charcoal for collectors an acutely important actuality – see our complete history of the Rolex Datejust for added details.

Fake Rolex-Oyster-Perpetual-Ref.-4467

An archetype of the aboriginal alternation of the Rolex Datejust, the advertence 4467 – agenda the abounding gold case / armlet (not attainable on avant-garde editions) and the absence of date magnifier (it came later). Source: Mondani Web

The Rolex Datejust’s abounding name was and still is in actuality the Rolex Ability Perpetual Datejust, acceptation that even at the time of its introduction, it already featured 2 important innovations of Rolex: the Ability case, appropriately getting a waterproof watch, and the Perpetual winding, acceptation that it was an automated watch with 360° rotor. And it was abutting to the complete edition: a 3-hand watch with a date breach at 3 o’clock that afflicted automatically at midnight. Thanks to an boilerplate apparatus and a bounce mechanism, the date disc was able to accomplish an burning jump at midnight. The date was just, all the time.

As you can see, the architecture of the aboriginal alternation charcoal rather abutting to what we apperceive now, even if two actualization was missing: the channelled bezel (the aboriginal ones had a coin-style bezel) and something that is an complete Rolex’ hallmark: the cyclops – the magnifier over the date window. This appropriate aspect of the complete Datejust abandoned appeared in 1954, afterwards nine years of production.

Over the years, the Rolex Datejust evolved, bringing new designs, new dials, bigger movements and several added refinements. However, the abstraction – 3-hand watch with a date breach at 3 – and the all-embracing attending remained rather affectionate to the original, references afterwards references. The latest change of this figure appeared in 2009, with an adapted diameter, affective from 36mm to 41mm, with the Datejust 2.

A archetype of 41mm Rolex Datejust 2

The Rolex Datejust 2 was a beyond copy of the Datejust… and abounding collectors of Rolex never absolutely accepted this watch, apparent by some as too bulky, mainly because of ample indexes and a fat bezel. The bore itself can’t be accusable but the accommodation are. This is this watch that Rolex updates at Baselworld 2016, with the new Rolex Datejust 41.

The new Rolex Datejust 41 of Baselworld 2016

Let’s aboriginal go aback to 2015, if Rolex alien the new 40mm Day-Date. This watch apparent a advance to beneath bulky, added aesthetic and slimmer watches bogus by the “Crown”. It was aswell the break for Rolex to acquaint a cast new alternation of movements, the 32xx (in the case of the Day-Date 40, the calibre 3255) with bigger escapement, best ability reserve, adapted butt and accessory alternation and bigger finish.

The Rolex Day-Date and the Rolex Datejust accept consistently been rather affiliated and both were attainable in 41mm edition. in acclimation to chase what the cast did with the Day-Date, we were rather abiding that a aforementioned amend was about to appear for the Datejust. It is absolutely what Rolex did at Baselworld 2016. But the bearings is a bit added circuitous than just introducing a date-only copy of the 40mm Day-Date…

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – 6

The new Rolex Datejust 41 keeps its diameter, at 41mm, just like the beforehand Datejust 2. We were assured Rolex to chase the aphorism implemented with the 2015 Day-Date, acceptation a hardly bargain bore of 40mm. but this won’t be the case. However, if the bore charcoal at 41mm, the accommodation and the added ambit change rather drastically, which is a complete acceptable point because the somehow “fat” attending of the beforehand Datejust 2 – the bezel was apparent as apparently too advanced for the bore of the punch and the indexes were too thick. This watch was apparently missing a bit of elegance.

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – 1

Rolex activated the aforementioned compound with the Datejust 41 as with the Day-Date 40, acceptation a aboriginal a slimmer profile. The lugs are thinner than before, added cone-shaped and pointy to the end and added arced to bigger chase the curvature of the wrist. The case is aswell thinner if apparent from the abandon and finally, the breach of the punch is beyond and the bezel is thinner, creating a added counterbalanced and afflicted look. The new Rolex Datejust 41 seems now abate and visually “lighter”, while befitting the exact aforementioned diameter. Again, this is just a amount of proportions. As a result, the bezel is beneath “opulent” than before, abnormally if chosing the iconic channelled shape.

The advance of the Ceremony armlet on the Rolex Datejust 41

Another complete nice affection in this Rolex Datejust 41 is the advance of the 5-link Ceremony Bracelet. This blazon of armlet is anon hotlink to the history of the Datejust, a watch that came aboriginal with such a 5-link bracelet. Its name comes from the agent of the Datejust too, which was alien to bless the 40th ceremony of the brand, what some anxiety a jubilee. However, the Datejust 2 had never been attainable with this armlet and instead, it featured a adventurous 3-link Ability bracelet. And even if this Ability armlet will still be attainable on the new Rolex Datejust 41, you’ll now accept the best with an iconic Jubilee.

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – ceremony bracelet

For those who already able the Ceremony bracelet, it was and still is one of the a lot of adequate armlet anytime created. For the new copy of the Datejust, it has been improved. Of course, all the links are now solid (and not bankrupt like in the past). The aggregate of baby links with the angled actualization is just pleasant, complete bland and awful flexible. The adapter is aswell new, as now buried beneath the bezel, which ensures seamless beheld chain amid the armlet and case. Finally, as all avant-garde Rolex watches, the Ability and Ceremony bracelets are able with a folding Oysterclasp and aswell affection the Rolex-patented Easylink accelerated addendum arrangement that allows the wearer to calmly access the armlet breadth by about 5 mm.

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – on the wrist

Some will say that this is just a bracelet, but for us, it is absolutely the best amend of this new Rolex Datejust 41. It absolutely change the abundance of the watch already beggared on the wrist. Its added aesthetic and comfortable attending altogether matches with the slimmer and thinner case. Overall, this Rolex Datejust 41 becomes dressier and added elegant, and appropriately emancipating from the adventurous Ability watches.

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – 3

As accepted with anew alien watches, Rolex consistently starts with adored abstracts and the abounding stainless editions will chase later, in one or two years probably. Thus, the new Rolex Datejust 41 is, for the moment, abandoned attainable in Rolesor, acceptation a aggregate of stainless animate (for the case and the alien links of the bracelet, whether on the Ability or Jubilee) and 18k gold for the bezel, the acme and the centralized links of the bracelet). There’s no copy with channelled 18k white gold or stainless collapsed bezel yet. However, the Rolex Datejust 41 will be, for the aboriginal time, attainable in blush Rolesor, acceptation a aggregate of stainless animate and 18k blush gold, as able-bodied as in chicken Rolesor, a aggregate of stainless animate and 18k chicken gold.

Rolex Datejust 41 126333 – Baselworld 2016 – Review – 7


The punch aswell hardly acquired with this new copy – but it charcoal mainly details. The indexes are still classical continued batons abounding with white beaming acrylic but they are now a bit slimmer, acceptable the breeding of the watch. The fonts are aswell hardly thinner but the easily charcoal according in architecture to the Datejust 2.

Several options are attainable for the dial, including these two we photographed (Champagne and Silver) as able-bodied as amber brown, black, sundust or white – all depending on the best of metal (yellow or blush gold). Actuality are a few examples of combinations (with retail prices):

The new calibre 3235 of the Rolex Datejust 41

The added Baselworld 2016 novelties of Rolex we showed you beforehand were about all beheld updates, like for instance the Daytona with Atramentous bowl bezel or the Explorer. The abandoned complete change was the Air-King with Pilot dial, a complete arguable section (which we advised actuality – and that we loved). The new Rolex Datejust 41 is aswell a complete novelty, as the amend not abandoned apropos the beheld ancillary but aswell – and this is the complete advance actuality – it actualization with a cast new movement, from the new bearing developed by Rolex. The Datejust gets rid of the 3136 (a beyond adaptation of the iconic 3135, which aswell equips the Submariner Date, the Yacht-Master, the Deepsea or the Sea-Dweller 4000). Instead, it allowances from the contempo innovations of the movement featured in the Day-Date 40 – of advance afterwards the day complication, appropriately acceptable the Calibre 3235

Modern Guy OF Best Eye: Rolex Replica Cosmograph Daytona

The Patek Philippe Calatrava alternation is one, the Omega Replica Speedmaster another, and — lest we overlook the watch we’re demography a attending at today — the acclaimed Rolex Replica Cosmograph Daytona alternation absolutely fits that bill.  Modern Guy OF Vintage Eye Rolex Replica Cosmograph Daytona (3)
Rolex Replica Daytona – old-new

The Cosmograph Daytona is a activating alternation of watches steeped appropriately in actual fable and avant-garde fame. From the 1955 absolution of the aboriginal Ability Chronograph, a forerunner to the Cosmograph line; to the “pre-Daytona” Ref. 6238, a watch added aesthetically appropriate to the avant-garde lineage; to the 1963 admission of the aboriginal official “Cosmograph” watch; to two years afterwards in 1965 area the chat “Daytona” began to be printed over the basal subdial, the watch’s birth is one abounding of changes, variations, and improvements that has alone connected during the accomplished 60-plus years.

During that time, the alternation has formed to antithesis the demands of those in charge of a apparatus and sports watch with those carefully analytic for an big-ticket timepiece. From its aboriginal canicule on the racetracks at Daytona Beach, Florida, with chiral Valjoux 72 movements, to added contempo versions in gold cases on the wrists of boardroom admiral with adapted Zenith El Primero movements, it is a accumulating that has accurate to be absolutely dynamic. Today, the Cheap Replica Rolex Daytona holds a attenuate abode in horology — admired both by best enthusiasts, with their big-ticket adulation of alien “Paul Newman” styled dials as able-bodied as added aboriginal Cosmographs and pre-Daytonas, and by a added avant-garde army analytic for their “pinnacle” watch from this acclaimed brand.

Rolex Watch Daytona – front

This year was abnormally big for the Daytona, as Rolex issued a new absolution for the alternation at BaselWorld 2016. We activate the architecture of this new archetypal demography a hardly altered administration than those of Cosmographs in years past. The watch, accessible in several metal and punch variations, is now characterized by an engraved, audible bezel fabricated of Cerachrom, a Rolex-specific actual agnate to bowl meant to alter the antecedent engraved metal bezels.

Specifically absorption on the all-steel variants, the watch is 40 mm in bore afterwards the crown, powered from aural by Rolex’s modern, centralized alarm movement, Caliber 4130. On the atramentous or white punch that resides aural the now-black bezel are three categorical atramentous or white alarm subdials barometer 12 hours, 30 minutes, and 60 seconds. Aswell on the punch is the Daytona’s appropriate four anecdotic curve of autograph below the accumulated logo, the activated hour markers, the billy hands, and, of course, the iconic red “Daytona” book aloft the basal subdial. Added key appearance to apprehension are the screw-down acme and alarm pushers, and the acclaimed Rolex Ability bracelet. This watch, accessible afterwards this year, will activate in amount at $12,400.

Fake Rolex Daytona – angle

While the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona has absolutely afflicted absolutely a bit back its official barrage in 1963, it is not afterwards historically afflicted architecture elements. The screw-down acme and pushers, forth with the armlet and ability case, are all about anon descended from the designs of the aboriginal models in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Meanwhile, the added abreast characteristics — such as the 40-mm size, activated hour markers, acme guards, and centralized automated movement — are all elements added associated with the Daytonas produced afterwards 1988.

The models appear this year are decidedly absorbing as they pay a attenuate admiration to some of the a lot of acclaimed avant-garde variations in the series’ lineage, the alien dialed “Paul Newman” references. These watches were fabricated characteristic by their Spartan atramentous or white dials with atramentous or white (sometimes referred to as “panda”, or “reverse panda”) subdials, and generally by their use of a artificial or plexiglas atramentous bezel. The 2016 Daytonas, as you accept apparently noticed, use a atramentous bowl meant to account the antecedent atramentous plexiglas bezels, and use either atramentous or white subdial outlines alluding to antecedent “panda” models.

The Rolex Daytona has accurate itself as both an iconic and around-the-clock watch, as able-bodied as a alarm that has accomplished acute ballyhoo from about aberration and top prices through the years. The 2016 BaselWorld absolution will a lot of acceptable be no altered in award acclaim and acknowledgment through the next few decades, and has the added account of application some of the a lot of admired architecture elements (black bezel, atramentous and white dials) to accord it an added addition of fascination. Maybe one day Rolex will absolution a accurate and complete admiration to accomplished Daytonas, but for now the watch beneficiary association will accept to annoyed with this still-solid piece.

Rolex Explorer The New Fake Watch For 2016 Hands-On

Given the fizz and adorable choral singing surrounding the new ceramic-bezel Rolex Daytona, we’ll accord you a canyon if you didn’t apprehension that Rolex agilely adapted the Rolex Explorer. A attenuate update, this active Rolex Explorer actualization a set of absolutely lumed numerals and a re-sized handset, appearance a advance alteration for one of Rolex’s a lot of apparent and adorable entry-level models. The Rolex Replica Explorer Watches has continued stood as the access point for Rolex’s a lot of antic accumulation of watches, and it’s easy-wearing agreeableness and able architecture belies its history as one of the brand’s a lot of abounding chance companions. This anew active abundance is a applied and advantageous nod to the Rolex Explorer’s roots as a action watch and adds some much-needed clarification to the avant-garde design.

Rolex Explorer fake watch (2)

While the advertence amount charcoal banausic as 214270, a afterpiece attending will advance a ample brace adjoin the accepted bearing that was appear in 2010. The 2016 Rolex Explorer retains the 39mm allocation and, accepting a Rolex action model, the case uses their 904L steel. The movement aswell charcoal unchanged, with the Rolex Explorer active Rolex’s 3132 Superlative Chronometer automated movement, with 48 hours of ability reserve, a Parachrom dejected hairspring and Paraflex shock absorption.

With a basal and function-driven artful like that of the Rolex Replica, it doesn’t yield abundant to bewilder the design. The antecedent adaptation (the 214270 up to Baselworld 2016) wore beautifully, but in the move from 36mm (reference 14270) to 39mm, some of the abracadabra was lost. We saw the adverse abridgement of the minute duke which was a bit too abbreviate to ample the punch or ability the minute track. With the new 214270, the Rolex Explorer allotment to the accommodation and architecture of the 14270.

Rolex Explorer fake watch (3)

Those blithely able arabic numerals are out, replaced by lume-filled versions agnate to those apparent in antecedent generations. While this is a baby change, because both the antic and adjustable ambition of a watch like the Rolex Explorer, lume is important and should be an basic aspect in the Rolex Explorer’s design. Additionally, accede the Rolex Explorer’s roots. Today’s Rolex Explorer architecture is based on the 1016 Rolex Explorer which was launched in 1963 with corrective numerals to action as abundant afterglow as possible, a ambition mirrored in this 2016 version.

Eagle-eyed types will adequate apprehension the hardly adapted handset, which is now hardly beyond all-embracing and actualization a best minute hand. While the antecedent version’s minute duke was not terrible, its accommodation were off, and this change is annihilation if not welcome. The easily and markers affection a dejected alternative of Rolex’s Chromalite lume and the afterglow is agnate to what you get from a Rolex Submariner or Rolex Explorer II. With a antic affairs in mind, this anew adapted Rolex Explorer retains the Twinlock acme and 100m baptize attrition of the antecedent iteration.

Admittedly, this ability be added detail than a lot of humans capital about a few new markers and a brace of new hands, but I anticipate that the Rolex Explorer is a acute but generally disregarded criterion of Rolex’s band up and antic past. Aback summiting Everest in 1953, the Rolex Explorer has been a section of the Rolex ethos, and I’m captivated to see a brace that nails the data and ensures a absolutely sorted architecture for those who wish a Rolex action watch but don’t feel accountable to buy a Sub or a Cheap Replica Rolex GMT Master II. With a account amount of 5,000 EUR, the Rolex Explorer retains its position as the go-to access point for a adventurous Rolex and, in a acknowledged acknowledgment to form, is assuredly account your consideration.

Since 1910, Rolex began to make watches passed the test to obtain a certificate, partially solve the problem precisely. However, when the count of reliability in harsh conditions still a question mark. World War (1914-1918) effectively promote the popularity of wearing the watch, but also highlighted the existing defects in the product waterproof and dustproof.

Every change movement technology, all mechanical watchmaking concept of frontier exploration, or will go down in history, or short-lived, however, may be unlimited love the table is always the most traction of confusion between a chord.

Since the middle of last century, the major shape Rolex subtle design constantly evolve, but never from the apostasy cases, movement technology continue to make breakthroughs and development, but rarely on the surface somewhere, that if not carefully ask, you are not able to determine the movement of this table and in the past in the end what is different. Last year (2015), Rolex released two new movement: Cal.3235 and Cal.3255. Most people know Cal.3255, but few people know Cal.3235, in the history of the movement and the Rolex Datejust Day-Date movement, if there is an important technological innovation, often with the launch, in 1977, just as Cal .3035 launched, appearing together also Cal.3055, 1988 Cal.3135 replaced Cal.3035, Cal.3055 also Cal.3155 together instead.

Rolex important movement 3 Series Evolution

From the initial Cal.3035 to today’s Cal.3235, after 40 years of small, large and small technological change during too many, and each time change numbers, are an important technological innovation, of course, there is stress points . Cal.3035 to Cal.3135, and Cal.3135 to Cal.3235, substantially version circuit design movement have done a very big adjustment, the difference between these numbers is obvious. The Cal.3135 to Cal.3136, are mainly shock absorbers KIF replaced Rolex patented Paraflex. Movement number starts with a number of changes, the movement is a direct function of the type and completely change represents a completely different movement.

Rolex special structure – the amount of fine adjustment screw balance wheel clearance

So, in 2015 new out Cal.3255, and past Cal.3155, essentially different, but not beyond the scope of the type of movement, they are Day-Date watch (short DD) exclusive movement. So where is the difference? I think most of the difference, we would have been aware of the beginning of time, such as the barrel wall thinning 50%, the use of a new paramagnetic Chronergy escapement (15% efficiency), escapement fork watt than the previous generation thin 50%, moving to storage for 70 hours more than 90% of the movement of parts redesign or change the original Observatory certification twice, 14 patents when accuracy and so on. But there is a more details of the changes, but little known, this sort of a small change, but very conspicuous, nor the fact is ignored, and that is fine-tuning screw balance bridge board.

Rolex Cal.3130 movement in two trim screws

Speaking of the trimmer screw, it is the first time appeared in 3XXX based movement, but not only in 2015, so it is not new technology, but Cal.3235 or Cal.3255, but it is a sort of a small change. In saying this before trimming screw, we first want to say that it is hidden in the bottom of the fine adjustment screw, in Cal.3235 / Cal.3255, the balance wheel on the deck compared to previous generation made a very significant change, in addition to the original screwed to the top deck of the clips disappeared outside, underneath the deck had two fine adjustment screw, now only one. The role of this screw is placed by adjusting the position of the deck, to fine-tune the balance amount of clearance, the installation process, the positional deviation of the deck, will directly affect the position of the pendulum, which affects travel time. These two fine adjustment screw, after Rolex from 30XX from a single deck (slats), the transition to the 31XX series of movements there, and this also shows that, although the deck arms compared to the original arm splint to be more stable and reliable positional accuracy and better, but not perfect, once the positional deviation occurs, there will be no room for fine-tuning.
