Fancy And Luxurious First Class Rolex Yacht-master 40

Rolex Yacht-Master has made minor repairs and changes in recent years. For example, in 2015, the Oysterflex rubber strap was introduced for the first time, and in 2016, it was a new attempt with half-gold with a chocolate-colored faceplate. The watch is still evolving in 2017. This time Rolex introduced the element of gem setting-previously in different brands under the brand such as Daytona or GMT-Master II, there have been designs with gems set on the bezel. However, it was a little unexpected. This is still an unknown area in the Yacht-Master series. Therefore, in ’17, the brand launched a new work of bezel-encrusted colorful treasures. As soon as it debuted, it attracted market attention with its eye-catching appearance.

Feature one: the acceptance of rubber straps has improved
The Yacht-Master 40 uses an eternal rose gold case with an Oysterflex strap, which looks like a 2015 version. When mentioning this Rolex’s exclusive rubber band, it is characterized by the elastic metal sheet covering the rubber inside, so it can strengthen the watch. With strength and durability, and after two years of hardening, the market has also questioned Rolex watches with rubber straps from the beginning to the higher and higher acceptance. Under the premise of showing the same sporting character, we have stepped out of the original Only the fixed pattern of the metal chain.

For the first time, Yacht-Master uses a gem setting process. Rolex logically arranges the colored stones according to a certain color order, orderly and colorfully presenting a sense of gorgeousness never before seen in the series.

Feature two: gem setting is also a sign of labor
The original Yacht-Master’s two-way rotating bezel faintly has the dive watch’s chronograph function, but compared to the more professional diving watch series, the Yacht-Master is relatively less practical in this regard. The 2017 new model is exactly Make good use of this space to make a fuss. Rolex chose rectangular colored gemstones and turquoise inlays on the bezel one by one (cyclically arranged in the order of red, yellow, blue, orange, and green). It is worth mentioning that the original 12 o’clock direction on the bezel The triangular mark, Rolex specially changed to triangular diamonds to make the bezel not only glorious, but also retain the original practical role, on the other hand, it can also highlight the brand’s advantages in gem processing and setting technology.

The watch is mainly modified for the appearance part. The internal 3135 movement maintains a good reputation and has been certified by Rolex’s top astronomical observatory to ensure that the travel time is maintained at a high level of performance within ± 2 seconds.

Feature 3: Lau’s self-made movement is synonymous with reliability
For the movement part, the watch model is equipped with movement 3135. The movement contains the brand’s patented blue Parachrom hairspring. Compared with ordinary hairsprings, this hairspring advertises a substantial evolution in temperature resistance, magnetic resistance and shock resistance. Of course, the core has also passed the dual insurance checks certified by COSC and Rolex’s top observatory. In addition to the extremely dazzling appearance ‘upgrade’, it has ensured that the Rolex watch has been popular for a long time: accurate and reliable, and the power reserve is satisfactory. 48 hours.

The alloy sheet inside Oysterflex has a memory function. Because the rubber used is extremely soft, this pair of fins allows the strap to fully fit the shape of the wrist, and also improves the durability of the strap.

Diving Can Also Be Luxurious Panerai 佩纳海 684

In 2017 Panerai launched this 42mm diving watch, which was interesting in several aspects. First of all, this is the first time that the P.9010 caliber was launched in the 42mm diving series in 2016, which continues the purpose of Panerai’s market strategy of ‘thinning’, so the overall thickness is more suitable for Asian men with thinner wrists. In the past, the luminous display of the diving watch was mainly green, but the new luminous display has a little different elements, that is, the minute hand and the rotatable unidirectional bezel at 12 o’clock for measuring the dive time. The change is blue light. This subtle difference affects the fineness of the watch itself. Third, as a diving watch, the diving depth is 100 meters, the global limit is 250, and 18K rose gold is used. These data are added The first two points point to the same conclusion. This is actually a premium sports watch with high waterproof performance, that is, a subtle change in product positioning, and Panerai’s 2016 ‘thin and light’ revolution. Not only is the positioning of the models more flexible, it also introduces a variety of thicknesses for watch fans to wear, and it is more clearly targeted at the peak audience or watch collectors in the market audience.

Feature 1: Collector-grade rose gold body
Players who value diving generally use stainless steel or titanium metal as the case, but rose gold as the case is relatively rare, because the price of rose gold is The first two are much higher. The average person is usually reluctant and unlikely to choose rose gold as a diving watch, so to be straightforward, the diving watch with rose gold as the body is mainly locked to players with deep pockets. Men. As for the practical aspect, maybe the fans who are not familiar with Xiaopei will have opinions on the rose gold watch body in the sea. They mistakenly believe that the precious metals of Xiaopei are easy to oxidize. Alloy ratio, so not only does it look redr than other brands of rose gold in appearance, but the addition of a small amount of platinum can effectively prevent the oxidation of precious metals, so there is no need to worry about the actual wearing problem as a whole.

In terms of color matching, PAM00684 adheres to the consistent simple color of Panerai. It has a black unidirectional rotating bezel, an 18K gold rose gold case, and a black rubber strap for diving. Overall, it is sporty and luxurious It’s both practical and physical.

Feature 2: Rare blue luminous display
Panerai’s common luminous display is green, but this time you can see that the luminous display of the new PAM00684 has a slight difference. In addition to the blue light display on the unidirectional rotating bezel, it is also made on the minute hand. The blue light design, compared with the other indicators of the watch and the way of green light, this subtle change in actual wear makes the dive measurement time better recognized, because the body is in a dark environment in the water, from the blue light position You can intuitively determine the diving time. The difference between the PAM00684 and the luminous display of the previous diving watch is also based on the positioning of the product, because the more detailed the design of the watch, the more it means the entire watch Refinedness and usability have also improved.

Due to the relationship of the P.9010 movement, the thickness of the watch is also reduced, so it is more suitable for actual wearing. The application of this thin and light strategy also makes the cut angle on the side of the case more delicate and multi-level. Worthy of appreciation.

Feature three: comfortable fit of thin and light movement
The P.9010 calibre just released in 2016 is the same as the P.4001 and P.4002 self-made calibres. It is a new self-made calibre launched by Panerai in order to reduce the thickness and thickness. Parts and other specifications, compared with the P.9000 movement, the thickness is about 2mm less, the vibration frequency is 28,800vph, double barrel, with a three-day power reserve, it can be said that it is just right in practical value, the thickness changes It is thinner and thinner, which makes Xiaopei’s chances of appearing greatly increased. Whether it is a formal suit or casual dressing, it is not only comfortable and comfortable, but also not obtrusive.

You can admire the P.9010 movement from the transparent case back. The design of the movement inherits the usual 3/4 plywood of Panerai, so it can be clearly seen that the balance and the automatic winding state.

Complex Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T

During these 20 years of the establishment of the Chopard LUC Watch Factory, the main force was the development of ultra-complicated watches of the brand. Therefore, in the short period of more than 20 years, Chopard has continuously challenged itself to spawn multiple high-end watches. Ultra-complicated watch-making models, including perpetual calendar, tourbillon, moon phase display, time equation and other functions. Even though more than 20 years of watchmaking experience is in its adolescent years in the horological world, being able to gather such a large and complex watch lineup in a short time is enough to prove the strong watchmaking strength of L.U.C Watchmaking Workshop. The L.U.C Perpetual T to be introduced in this article is one of the masterpieces that integrates complex functions such as perpetual calendar, tourbillon, and big date in a watch.

Feature one: extremely readable face plate design
From the details of this watch’s dial, we can see that Chopard’s dedication to making this ultra-complicated watch, including the date, week, month, tourbillon, day and night display and other information, Chopard will This information is evenly distributed around the face plate with a visually balanced beauty, and the rich information can be read at a glance. The platinum case with the white dial has been hand-newly decorated with slate gray, and the slate gray perfectly separates the month, year, leap year display at 9 o’clock, and the day and night display at 9 o’clock. The overall design It also brings out a sense of visual hierarchy. It is worth mentioning that the diameter of the CHOPARD LUC Perpetual T 43mm also indirectly makes the overall information of the faceplate not overcrowded, and the watch of this size is also very reasonable for the wearer. Seeing Chopard from the details Attentive.

At six o’clock on the faceplate, you can see the tourbillon that Chopard used to compete and win.

Feature two: a pleasing tourbillon
CHOPARD L.U.C Perpetual T has a ‘core’ design for the faceplate. The tourbillon frame sits at 6 o’clock below the faceplate and is suspended from a steel bridge. This design seems ordinary, but it is said that Chopard will regularly send his tourbillon watch to Locle to participate in international competitions. Among them, the LUC Perpetual T tourbillon watch has also achieved good results and obtained the Chronometer mark. Therefore, in addition to the accuracy certification of the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC), this tourbillon and even the watch itself are additionally recognized by other professional units to affirm the excellent performance of the watch.

After seeing the automatic winding movement designed by the L.U.C watch factory, this time the L.U.C 02.15-L manually wound movement is still full of Chopard’s characteristics no matter the performance or the finishing of the movement.

Can Rolex 3235 Be Placed In A 36mm Case?

It is not too late to get to the topic. Not long ago, I wrote an article ‘How to buy 3 Rolex DJs after the new 126334/126300 came out?’ ‘, Mentioned in the article, Rolex in the new DATE JUST 41 represented by 126333, 126334, 126300, completed the replacement of the new generation 3235 movement. At present, the new 41mm DATE JUST in Rolex’s official website and stores uses the new 3235 movement. At the same time, Rolex’s 36mm DATE JUST is still using the 3135 movement. As for the 36mm DJ, if it is not a new movement, it is unknown when the new movement will be replaced. After the article was published, some people said that ‘the 3235 movement cannot fit in the 36mm case at all’, ‘or why Xinhai Ambassador increased the dial this year. It should be the reason for the size of the 3235 movement.’ I believe that the new generation of 3235 movement may Not suitable for 36 mm DATE JUST. This question is very interesting, because I thought about it before, and I also asked myself, can 36 DJs use 3235 movement?
   Whether 36 DJ can use 3235 is a more meaningful question, this problem will affect some players. If 3235 can’t be used for 36 DJ, then good, we can safely buy 36 mm DJ without worrying about the replacement of the movement, the watch is out of date; if 3235 can be used for 36 DJ, then buy 36 now DJ, if the new movement is changed next year, some people may feel awkward. So today I will discuss with you and infer whether 3235 can be used for 36 DJs.

Rolex’s new 41mm DATE JUST (top) and Rolex’s 36mm DATE JUST (bottom). I used the same ratio for the two pictures. We can see the difference in size between the two watches.
   Now we ask this question because Rolex did not give detailed dimensions and specifications of the new 3235. Some players see that Rolex using the 32 series movements are large-caliber, 40mm DAY DATE, 41mm DATE JUST, 43mm new SEA DWELLER, only models below 40 are not available. So I wonder if it is because the size of the 3235 movement has become larger. The 32 series movement can only be used on watches of 40 mm and above. Even some people think that the reason why this year’s new SEA DWELLER increased to 43 is also because of the movement (the reason for the change of the new sea dweller, I will write a separate article to talk about). Although Rolex officially did not give detailed data of the 3235 movement, but I also collected some 3235 information myself, let’s compare the previous generation 3135 movement and the new generation 3235 movement to see if the 3235 can be installed in 36 In the shell.
The technical specifications of the Rolex 3135 are:

   It has a diameter of 28.5 mm, 31 jewel bearings, a swing frequency of 28,800 times per hour, and a power reserve of 48 hours. Early 3135 used KIF shock absorbers, Nivarox hairsprings, and later replaced with Rolex’s exclusive Paraflex shock absorbers and Parachrom blue hairsprings.
The technical specifications of the Rolex 3235 are (not official, data from folk):

   Diameter 28.5mm, 31 jewel bearings, 28800 swings / hour, 201 parts, 70 hours power reserve, new Chronergy escapement, Paraflex shock absorber, Parachrom blue hairspring.

Rolex 3135 (top) and Rolex 3235 (bottom), according to folk data, the dimensions of the two movements are the same.
   I want to emphasize that although Rolex did not give official data for 3235, I have inquired from many foreign articles and materials that the diameter of the movement of 3235 is 28.5 mm, not a single company. Wherever I see 3235 size, The information written is 28.5 mm, the same size as 3135 (two years ago, when Rolex launched the first 32255 series movement 3255, I checked it once, and the data found at that time was also 28.5). Therefore, I believe that the data of 3235 with a diameter of 28.5 mm is credible and should be true. The previous generation 3135 is the same size as the new 3235, so it can be inferred that the 3235 can be used on a 36 mm DATE JUST. There should be no problem that 3235 can only be used on large-caliber watches of 40 mm and above.

   Because Rolex has not yet replaced the 3235 movement on this classic 36mm DATE JUST, it has caused many players to guess, which is also an indisputable fact.

Disassembly of Rolex 3135
Guess one: According to Rolex’s consistent technology change rate, the replacement of a new technology will take up to several years, gradually starting from the all-gold flagship model, gradually decentralizing to gold and stainless steel, and updating one or two models a year. Some people have speculated that it may be close to 2020 when the steel shell water ghosts change into the new 3235 movement. This year’s 41mm DJ has been replaced with 3235, and next year’s 36mm DJ can be replaced. It is really hard to say. Rolex has a large output, and replacing the movement is a huge process, which will take a long time.

Conjecture 2: Some players believe that Rolex may also use the new 3235 movement on large-caliber models such as DAY DATE 40; DATE JUST 41, and 3135 on some other models of watches. Use two different movements to form a price distinction. I personally think this is unlikely. Industrial production is focused on simplification, and especially Rolex, a large-volume brand, should not have two sets of standards and two systems. Rolex also wrote in the introduction of the new generation 32 series movement, 90% of the parts of the 32 series movement are completely new design, and 31 series is not universal. Moreover, Rolex has never done two sets of standards.

The wheel train structure of the Rolex 3235 movement. It should be noted that the new generation 32 series movements of the Rolex use the center two wheel train layout, which is completely different from the center 4 wheel layout 3135 movement.
So we can infer:
   First of all, Rolex must have made the layout of the new 32 series movements. All men’s watches and large-caliber women’s watches (39 mm pearl ladies) will be 32 series movements in the future, and small-sized women’s watches will be 2235 series movements (including silicon Gossamer’s 2236). The 36 mm watch is certainly also the new 3235 movement. First of all, 36mm is the most classic size of Rolex. The true neutral size is impossible to cancel. Since there is 36mm, the 3235 movement will not be used in the future. Will it always use 3135? (Don’t forget, the 3135 movement was produced in 1988.) Will we use the women’s watch 2235, 2236? impossible. Therefore, the Rolex movement is not unchangeable, it is not yet time. Each year Rolex presents new technologies to one or two models at the Basel Watch Fair. This year it is 43 mm SEA DWELLER and 41 mm DJ with steel case. Whoever is next will depend on the next year’s watch fair.
