Rolex Oyster 36

The Rolex Oyster 36 came out in 2014, and was, almost immediately, taken for granted, which if you stop and think about it, is in a funny way a compliment to the watch.It’s simply a very solid watch, and since its whole identity is to be the paradigmatic everyday watch – reliable, classic, versatile, accurate, and dependable; the sort of thing an actual spy might wear, especially the sort whose stock in trade is to go unnoticed – flying under the radar is sort of exactly what it’s supposed to do. But like so many steady, steadfast things in life, there’s a lot of dignity and even beauty in the Oyster 36, if you pay attention.

The movement’s certainly a solid one, and a reminder of just how much more you get from Rolex at this price point chronometrically than you do from virtually all their competition: the manufacture caliber 3130, chronometer certified, with Parachrom balance with Breguet overcoil, adjustable balance bridge, and free-sprung balance with Microstella balance screws for adjustment of rate.

Now if you want a version of this watch that has all the understated, just-the-facts-ma’am, poker faced, Joe Friday quality for which so many Rolexes are famous, you can have this watch in steel with a grey dial and you won’t have a moment’s regret; you’ll own a watch you can look at every day for the rest of your life, with a fantastic movement that’s all sorts of bang for the buck, that will give you all the pride of ownership you could possibly ask for in a mechanical watch. But why not have, you know, a little fun.

n 1933, the combination of gold and steel Rolex was registered under the name Rolesor. Three years after the launch of the Oyster Perpetual in 1945 the model was introduced in Rolesor. He was an instant success, reaching to distinguish the status of a legendary clock, with the naked eye. Today Rolesor Datejust is available in various combinations: white steel, yellow gold or Everose.

For Rolex, stone property is the expression of a complex art form, and high labor productivity, which has earned its reputation through a fine art and creativity.

Rolex Daytona

Created by Rolex in 1963, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is a watch born to race. It has established an extraordinary track record in the world of motor sport thanks to its reliability and performance. Known simply as the “Daytona”, the watch has risen to the rank of an icon as one of the best known chronographs in the world.

A key part of the model’s identity is the bezel engraved with a tachymetric scale for measuring average speeds of up to 400 miles or kilometres per hour. The new monobloc Cerachrom bezel in high-tech ceramic offers a number of advantages: it is corrosion resistant, virtually scratchproof and the colour is unaffected by UV rays. This extremely durable bezel also offers an exceptionally legible tachymetric scale, thanks to the deposition of a thin layer of platinum in the numerals and graduation via a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process. The monobloc Cerachrom bezel is made in a single piece and holds the crystal firmly in place on the middle case, ensuring waterproofness.

Named after the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, the Rolex Daytona is a racing chronograph designed for the gentlemen drivers of the day, and has since become one of the most popular and sought after watches in history. Understated and elegant, its design is unmistakeable and continues to carry huge demand.
