“Cyclops” gives you a glimpse into the wider world of Rolex.

Some people love them, some people hate them. But whichever view one takes, it cannot be denied that the Cyclops is one of Rolex’s iconic features, a highly innovative invention designed to magnify the calendar window and highlight the time (1945. The Cyclops convex lens, named after the Sicilian giant Cyclops in Greek mythology, was patented by replica Rolex watches  in the early 1950s and introduced with the Chronomat in 1953.

What led to the invention of the Cyclops convex lens? Certain sources claim that Hans Wilsdorf invented the Cyclops to help his wife read the date on his wristwatch (note: a reference to his second wife, Betty Wilsdorf Mettler, as his first wife, May Wilsdorf Crotty, had died in 1944), though of course this claim has not been confirmed by Rolex.

In a February 1953 letter, Wilsdorf wrote: “I am sure that the new Tropical case and mirror, as well as the optical magnifying element, will give us something completely new.” With this in mind, and in order to protect innovation, Rolex issued a “warning statement” in 1955: “To all watchmakers, we draw your attention to the fact that watch mirrors with specially shaped magnifying glasses are patented by Rolex, both in Switzerland and abroad. We will not hesitate to take legal action against any counterfeit.”

The Cyclops convex lens was soon extended to all Oyster watches with a date display, and the Greenwich and Day-Date models, introduced in 1955 and 1956 respectively, were also equipped with this feature. The only exception was the Deep Diver, which was not fitted with a Cyclops convex lens for technical reasons relating to the shape and thickness of the lens.

In the early 1970s, the sapphire crystal was first used on the Ref. 5100 Oyster Quartz, then extended to the entire range. Since 2005, Rolex has also applied an anti-reflective coating on both sides of the lens.

The Cyclops convex lens has attracted an untold number of fans to Rolex, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t voices on the opposite side. Critics have complained that air bubbles can cut through the flat lens and disrupt the overall harmony of the watch’s design, while the slightly raised lens is also more susceptible to scratches.

So for, or against? The topic has been in the midst of a heated debate. For example, the introduction of the Aquamarine, which was fitted with the Cyclops convex lens for the first time in 2017, sparked a great deal of controversy among the Rolex fan base and even became one of the most controversial topics at Baselworld that year, as the cleanliness of the crystal has been a defining characteristic of the Aquamarine collection for 50 years. Rolex explained that the Cyclops had not been fitted in the past for technical reasons (the lens is highly curved to cope with extreme water depths and high pressures), but that the problem had now been solved. “If you can, why not? After all, the Cyclops convex lens is an iconic element of all Rolex watches with date display windows.”

The Rolex Deep Diving 126660 watch is currently the only watch with a date display window but not equipped with a Cyclops convex lens.
The Rolex Deep Diving 126660 watch is currently the only watch with a date display window but not equipped with a Cyclops convex lens.

Currently, the only watch that has a date window but is not fitted with a Cyclops convex lens is the Deep Submariner. In order to achieve water resistance to a depth of 3,900 meters, the Deep Submersible is fitted with an extra thick sapphire crystal and therefore can no longer be fitted with a convex lens. We will have to wait for Rolex to come up with a new solution.

Searching the web, one can even see some attempts to remove the Cyclops lens from a Rolex (highly discouraged), and of course, some people have upgraded their watches with it. Beyond its practicality, the Cyclops lens has become one of Rolex’s most iconic features. Even though some of its competitors have used or are using them, such as Seiko, TAG Heuer and Cartier (some even place them underneath the lens), the Cyclops lens belongs only to Rolex. It’s safe to say that without the Cyclops convex lens, the Logbook would not be the Logbook model it is today.

What do we need to look out for when buying the Rolex Explorer I and II series?

Over the past year, we’ve talked a lot about the Rolex Daytona and the Aquatimer. I’ve bought them before, but to be honest, I also had a “speculative” mind when I bought them, as many of the players who bought them “made” money. In fact, in all kinds of  replica Rolex watches , I myself wear the longest time, is the first one, I used to wear for several years. So in this period of time when the Di and the Ghost are hot, I would like to talk about the Explorer I and II series.

Rolex Explorer I, model number: 214270
Rolex Explorer I, model number: 214270

Compared to the Rolex Dittona and Water Ghost, the Explorer I and II series are relatively “niche” watches among the sports watches. Although the Rolex market rose in these two years, but with the Steel Di, Aquaman, red and blue circle, blue and black circle, blue disk Skywalker, these hot models compared to the market also rose, but belongs to the market is relatively “rational” sports labor, and even can have a discount. In the movement of the labor cost is very high.

Rolex Explorer II, model number: 216570
Rolex Explorer II, model number: 216570

The Explorer I and II series is also a very “background” watch in Rolex.

The Rolex sports watches (professional watches) each have a professional direction. It’s not all-around, it’s just to do well in your own profession. For example, Dittona is a professional chronograph, Aquaman is a professional diving watch, Lightning Needle is a professional anti-magnetic watch, and Greenwich is a professional GMT watch. The Rolex Explorer’s professional direction is adventure, such as climbing mountains and caves, Rolex Explorer I and II series are historically associated with mountain climbing watches.

The origin of the Explorer I is that in 1953, mountaineers Hillary and Norgay climbed Mount Everest, the first time a human climbed Mount Everest. Mountaineering team in the process of climbing Mount Everest, wearing a watch provided by Rolex, this watch is the forerunner of the Rolex Explorer series, thus giving birth to the Rolex Explorer (Explorer I), Rolex Explorer became the first watch to climb Mount Everest. The origin of the Explorer II is that in 1971, mountaineers prepared to climb the snowy mountains of New Guinea (in what is now Indonesia), Rolex provided climbers with the Explorer II watch. At the time, Rolex offered the 1655, the first generation Explorer II.

Here’s a look at the current Explorer I and II series.

The Explorer I is the most minimalist of Rolex’s sports watches. No extras, no calendar. Only the hour, minute and second hands, the most basic time functions. Considering that the Probe I is a professional watch developed from mountaineering, mountaineering doesn’t need any functions either. It just needs to be sturdy and durable, luminous and easy to read the time. The 3, 6, 9 hour markers on the dial is the most distinctive feature of Probe One. There are mainly two types of Explorer I in circulation, one is the new model and the other is the old model. It should be noted that, regardless of the new and old models, the 39mm Explorer I number is 214270, when Rolex introduced the new Explorer I, did not change the number. The most important thing to buy an Explorer I is to differentiate between the old and new models. The way to distinguish between the old and new is simple, there are two differences between the old and new Explorer I. The old and new Explorer I have two differences.

Rolex old Explorer I214270 (left) and Rolex new Explorer I214270 (right), pay attention to the difference between 369 and the hands.

1, 39mm new Explorer I’s 3, 6, 9 hour markers, all luminous words, with luminescence; 39mm old Explorer I’s 3, 6, 9 hour markers are metal words, no luminescence.

2, the new 39mm Explorer I’s hour and minute hands are larger and thicker, and the minute hand length is longer; the 39mm old Explorer I’s hour and minute hands are shorter and thinner, and the minute hand length is shorter.

The reason why the 39mm Explorer I214270 will cause there are new, old two is that the previous generation of the probe one 114270 is 36mm, after upgrading to the 39mm 214270, initially only increased the case size to 39, did not change the hands. Later found that the proportions are not particularly good, so they changed the longer and thicker hands. Now stores are selling, are new fat needle, luminous 369 probe I, but in the secondary market there are many old fine needle metal 369 explorer I, you should pay attention to the distinction.

The Rolex Explorer I and II series are very different, although they are both explorers. The Rolex Explorer II has a dual time function, a calendar, a bezel with 24-hour numbers, and a crown with a shoulder guard. This is because, in the 1970s, Rolex felt that the Explorer I was not very functional, so it introduced the Explorer II to improve the configuration of the watch.
First of all, dual time was added in order to allow explorers to identify the correct time (e.g., whether it’s 10 p.m. or 10 a.m.) in caves, extreme day and night, and other places where they can’t tell the difference between day and night. A calendar and crown shoulder guard have also been added. The Explorer II, currently in circulation, is also of two kinds. One is new and the other is old. The new model is number 216570. The new Explorer II is numbered 216570 and the old Explorer II is numbered 16570.

Rolex old explorer II16570 (left) and Rolex new explorer II216570 (right), pay attention to the difference between the hands.

1, the new Explorer II216570 is 42 mm, large size; the old Explorer II16570 is 40 mm, small size.

The new Explorer II216570 has a large “orange” arrow hand for dual time; the old Explorer II16570 has a small “red” hand for dual time.

The hour and minute hands of the new Explorer II216570 are thicker “fat needles”; the hour and minute hands of the old Explorer II16570 are thinner “thin needles”.

The new Explorer II216570 is now available in Rolex boutiques, while there are many older Explorer II16570s in circulation in the secondary market. Please pay attention to the distinction. The bezel of the Explorer II is a steel bezel with printed numbers, which should be protected to prevent wear and tear on the bezel or numbers.

In the mainstream luxury brands of steel watches, the metric price of the Explorer I and II series is in the middle, normal price. The actual price/performance ratio of the Explorer I and II series in Rolex is outstanding. In this period, the Rolex market is high, and the price/performance ratio of the Explorer I and II series is bursting at the seams.

It’s also a good idea to take note of the fact that the Explorer I and II series are “no class” Rolexes. The Explorer I and II series from the birth to now, are steel watches, never precious metal. For example, the same sports professional watch Aquaman, there are steel, gold, and full gold, the level gradually increase. More money can buy full gold, less money will buy steel, forming a difference. And Explorer I and II series because it is never a steel watch, will not form a difference.

Low-profile luxury, new Rolex yacht

To be honest, I generally don’t like to talk about replica Rolex watches. Some people will say, “Look, it’s so-and-so’s Rolex again. But on the other hand, Rolex is a watch that I usually wear, and recently I’ve been wearing it most often, which is a yacht. Today, I would like to talk to you about the new Rolex Yacht 126622.

Rolex Yacht Master Series m126622-0002
Rolex Yacht Master Series m126622-0002

When I was first introduced to watches, the yacht was a watch that I really liked. The old players all know, at that time years, Rolex or normal market, not expensive (referring to the actual price), and not rare. The yacht on the market at that time, mainly 16622 and 116622, with a silver disk red second hand color scheme (now). 126622 generation, which is no longer available in this colorway), the yacht is more niche than the Blackwater, and with the platinum rings, it’s more Luxury, I prefer. At that time, I always thought to myself that I’d better buy a yacht sometime. As a result, over the years, Rolex has been playing with it, but I never got into a yacht, until this 126622.

The Yachts are a relatively “new” series of Rolex sports watches (excluding the Yachts II, which is a countdown watch). The Yacht Rolex collection was launched in 1992, the first model being the 16628, a 40mm model using the 3135 movement. , is an all gold sport watch. Compared to the more professional and tooled-up watercraft, the yacht was a luxury route from the start. Unfortunately, the original all-gold yacht did not catch fire. Rolex yachts really made a name for themselves and became widely known, starting with the launch of the steel-hulled yacht 16622 in 1999. The steel-hulled yacht, although the case and bracelet are steel, was a hit because of the use of a platinum bezel and platinum dial. And a few years back (2015, I think), a yacht with a rose gold bezel and rose gold links was introduced (116621/) (126621). A distinction is created with the Rolex Water Ghost through the use of platinum and rose gold.

Rolex Yacht Master Series m126622-0002
Rolex Yacht Master Series m126622-0002

Yachts on sale now (meaning Yachts I, not including the countdown Yachts II) include, the steel-hulled platinum-rimmed 126622 ( (grey or blue disc); 126621 in steel-hulled rose gold rings (black or brown disc). In addition, there are the gold yachts with 42mm white gold and 40mm rose gold hulls. All the yachts on sale already use the 3235 movement (excluding the Countdown and 37 ladies).

The Rolex Steel Hull Yacht 126622, like the Aquatimer, is 40mm, a classic Rolex size. It’s the perfect size for a variety of wrists. The most important feature of the steel case Yachts 126622 is the platinum bezel. Platinum is the most valuable precious metal among watches. Because of the difficulty of processing, so the public price of platinum watches, than gold, rose gold, white gold, etc.. The platinum bezel of a yacht has a satin matte body, but the numerals and indices, which are similarly embossed, protrude from the bezel. The protruding numerals and indices are polished and have a matte bezel backing that is very bright and conspicuous in the light. Also, even on the gold yachts with ceramic bezels, the bezel scale numbers are raised (excluding the countdown yacht II) and the bezel It can be rotated in both directions. In comparison, the bezel scales and numbers on each model of the Rolex Water Ghost are slightly recessed. While there are many similarities in appearance between the Yacht and the Water Ghost, the bezel is the biggest difference in appearance.

The Rolex Yacht is not a professional dive watch, although it looks like a dive watch. The Yacht’s crown also uses Rolex’s triple waterproofing mechanism with three locks that pop out when the crown is unlocked, as well as Sturdy rubber rings for waterproofing, but the yacht is waterproof to 100 meters. Water Ghost, a professional dive watch, is the basic standard for 300m water resistance.

Rolex steel-hulled yacht’s dial, now has developed several color schemes. The earliest Rolex yacht is mainly silver disk red needle, blue disk red needle. Now the production of silver disc red needles has been discontinued, while retaining the blue disc red needles, the new gray disc blue needles have been added. The new gray disc blue needle, popularly known as “gray yacht”, is very hot in the past two years because of its high color value. In addition, the plate of the yacht 126622 is also platinum.

Nowadays, all the yachts on sale have been equipped with Rolex’s new generation 3235 movement. Likewise, the SWISS MADE has a small crown logo in the center below the 6 o’clock position on the dial. Whenever you see the small crown in the center of the SWISS MADE, it is the new 3235 caliber (126622 for example). ), if not, then it’s the old discontinued 3135 movement model (e.g. 116622). After replacing the 3235 movement, the power reserve is substantially higher than the previous 3135, and the 70-hour power is still handy, 2 Day doesn’t wear it, and it doesn’t stop the watch. It’s been a few years now since Rolex switched to a 32 series movement. I’ve also switched and worn a few watches with 32 series movements, and in terms of actual timekeeping, at least on my watch, they’re all very accurate. It can meet the Rolex Super Chronometer +2/-2 per day standard. The various new technologies that Rolex uses on the Series 32 movement, including the Chronergy escapement, 14 new patents And so on, and it has been tested over the years.

Rolex yacht bracelets, steel watch or oyster bracelet, gold shell yacht is tape. The platinum ring 126622 is a pure steel bracelet, and the rose gold ring 126621 is a rose gold interlocking bracelet. The clasp of the yacht is the same as the Dittona, GMT, etc., with a folding clasp and a small cap, and the last section of the bracelet can be folded for shortening/ Extends the length by half a knuckle. The clasp does not have the ability to slide to adjust the length like the Aquaman. The Yachts 126622 is a luxurious but understated Rolex, with a silver platinum part that looks no different than a steel watch, but those who know what they’re doing, will understand.

Rolex Ambassador, the first “gold” watch.

This year, Rolex has introduced a new yellow gold colored seapassenger, model 126603. Separately written, the reason being that the new inter-gold seacock is very similar to the red-letter seacock (model 126600) previously replica rolex watches introduced by Rolex. The main configuration is consistent and many players are already familiar with the 126600.

But not long ago, when I talked about Rolex with a fellow watchmate, he said he wanted to start with a new “big number between gold and ghost”. “I just realized that some players are confusing the Mackinac with the Mackinac Messenger. Indeed, at first glance, the Aquaman and the Mercury are very similar, so I would like to focus on the new Rolex Mercury today.

The first Rolex Mercury in the Rolex Mercury.
The first Rolex Mercury in the Rolex Mercury.

The Rolex Ambassador model can be considered as an upgrade of the Rolex Aquaman (Submariner), the Ambassador model has a deeper water resistance. The Rolex Ambassador also has a long history, the first Rolex Ambassador was launched in 1967, model 1665 ( (The Rolex Mercury was introduced in 1953). The first Rolex Ambassador 1665 reached 610 meters of water resistance, surpassing the Rolex Mercury’s 300-meter level. After the first Sea Crew model 1665, the Rolex Sea Crew went through the 16660 in 1978, the 16660 in 1988, and the Rolex in 1988. The introduction of models such as the 16600 has evolved into today’s modern model 116600 and the latest 126600. Depth also rose to 1220 meters. It is Rolex’s most powerful professional dive watch (deepsea is also in the Sea Make model series).

The development of the Rolex Sea Mate in recent years was the launch of the Sea Mate 116600 in 2014 and the Sea Mate 126600 in 2017. The 126600 was launched to replace the 116600. 116600 also became the shortest production model of the Rolex Ambassador. One, produced for only 3 short years.The 126600, introduced in 2017, is the current Rolex Helmut model on sale, thanks to the The dial has the red SEA DWELLER lettering (continuing the history of the red-letter sea ambassador), also known as the red-letter sea ambassador. And in 2019, Rolex introduced a new inter-gold version of the Sea Messenger, the 126603 inter-gold model 126600. The 126603 is also the first inter-gold watch in the Rolex Seapassenger model, as all previous Seapassadors have been made of steel.

What kind of watch is the Rolex Inter-Gold Seapassenger?

Rolex currently sells the Hercules model (not counting the deepsea) in all-steel 126600 and in gold 126603. Two kinds. The two watches are pretty much identical except for the material.

The first major change in the Rolex 126600/126603 is the increased size. 126600/126603 The size is 43mm. Prior to this, the Sea Angels were all 40mm, the same size as the Aquaman. 126600/126603 increased the size to 43, it has been suggested that the size was increased to better fit the European and American wrist and to differentiate it from the Aquaman. At the same time, there is a helium valve on the side of the case of the Aquaman, which is not found on the Aquaman.

The second major change to the Rolex 126600/126603 is the addition of a date magnifying glass. Previously, the Rolex was the Aquamarine with a loupe, but the Aquamarine without a loupe, to differentiate. Back then, there was an opinion that because the Sea Make type waterproof depth of 1220 meters, such a depth far more than the Water Ghost’s 300 meters of waterproofing, due to the The water pressure at 1220 meters underwater prevented the installation of a magnifying glass, so there was no magnifying glass for the sea angels. But judging from the 126600/126603 with a magnifying glass, this statement is self-refuting. Since the 126600/126603 also had a magnifying glass, it looks fiercely similar to the Aquaman/Margin Aquaman! .

The Rolex 126603 is a gold-plated watch, a combination of gold and steel. 126603 has a bezel, crown, links and a middle section that are all in gold. Solid gold. Also, the numerals on the ceramic bezel are filled with gold. And like the Tudor inter-gold shield we’ve talked about before, many of the components are gold-coated, a layer of gold over stainless steel. Intrinsic or steel. For inter-gold watches this is important to identify. Brands like to the level of Rolex, Omega, Cartier and higher positioned brands will only use solid gold because of the high amount of gold used, so The public price will be higher. To match the look of the 126603 inter-gold sea angel, the watch dial has hour marker edges, hand edges, SEA The DWELLER lettering is made gold. The gold lettering creates a distinction from the red SEA DWELLER lettering on the Steelcase 126600.

Rolex sells the SEA DWELLER 126600/126603 with the new Rolex caliber 3235, which is currently used in the Rolex Mercury. The old model 3135 movement is used. The main feature of the new 3235 is its 70-hour power, which significantly exceeds the 48 hours of the old Rolex model 3135. The new 3235 movement also includes a new Chronergy skeleton escapement, a ball-bearing rotor, a high capacity The winding case, etc. It’s important to note that both the new 3235 movement and the previous 3135 movement keep time in line with the Rolex Superlative. Observatory standard, error +2/- 2 seconds per day. So most intuitively, apart from the difference in power reserve length, the 3235 and 3135 are identical in terms of performance timekeeping. From the public’s point of view, the Rolex on sale, whether it is the 3235 or 3135 movement, do not bother too much with this question.

As the first inter-gold watch in the Rolex Sea Messenger, the inter-gold Sea Messenger 126603 caused some discussion after its introduction. It is a good idea to have a watch that has been used as a “tool watch” since its inception, as well as a steel watch. . Now out of the gold inter-gold watches, take the luxury route, and lose the original purpose of the sea ambassador type. For this problem, there are foreign media specially with the gold sea envoy underwater deep dive test, to prove the professional level of the gold sea envoy type. My feeling about Rolex is that, no matter how luxurious Rolex is, how many diamonds and gems are added to it, Rolex’s nature is accurate and durable. It’s always the same.

The two kinds of sea make the actual market price are Around the metric mark, with the steel cased red letter Sea Angel overall a bit over metric. The Sea Make is a much smaller market than the 40mm Aquatimer because of its large size and thickness of 43mm. But the Sea Make model is unassailable as a professional Rolex dive watch and can be considered a player-oriented watch.

The best timekeeper. A brief review of the Rolex Daytona Black Edition.

It has been 50 years since the introduction of the replica Rolex Daytona watches in 1963, and it has been refined over the years, and its popularity is not so hard to find, but it still takes some fate and opportunities to buy one.

In 1963, Rolex introduced a new generation of chronographs for racing drivers – the Cosmograph. The name created by Rolex, together with its innovative model, quickly made this new model stand out. The chronograph counters were designed in contrasting colours and stood out on their surfaces: light with a black design or black with a light colour. Design. A tachymeter (a scale that uses a chronograph second hand to measure the average speed of an object over a specific distance) is moved from the surface to the perimeter of the outer ring, providing the surface with a More space, more simplicity. Rolex has made the chronograph functions easier to read, which was a challenge in its day. Rolex also gave the watch a technical and sporty look that made it easy to identify. In 1953, ten years before the advent of the Cosmograph, Rolex launched a line of professional wristwatches, which, together with the Cosmograph, was to be the first of its kind. Other names include the Explorer, for explorers and mountaineers, and the Navigator, for deep-sea divers.

The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is a classic watch thanks to its advanced technology, its tradition and its sporty style. The dial is inscribed in red with the inscription "Daytona" - the world-famous American race track. The watch is made of 904L stainless steel, which is extremely resistant to corrosion.

The dial is inscribed in red with the inscription “Daytona” – the world-famous American race track. The watch is made of 904L stainless steel, which is extremely resistant to corrosion.

In 1965, the Cosmograph evolved by replacing the original pump pushers with screw-down chronograph pushers. The screw-down pushers provided the finishing touch to the Oyster-shaped case concept and protected the pushers from accidental presses. In order to emphasize the enhanced water resistance, the word “Cosmograph” was engraved on the dial before the word “Cosmograph”. The “Oyster” on the tachymeter. The bezel of the tachymeter is coated with black Plexiglas resin glass, while the white indices provide a clearer reading. Another new feature.

With the reinterpretation of the Cosmograph Dittona in 2000, Rolex not only continued the craze for the first ever Cosmograph, but it also created a new style of watch. The new millennium is the most symbolic moment for a new generation of timepieces. There could be no more symbolic moment to mark the arrival of a new generation of timepieces than the dawn of the new millennium.

The Cosmograph Dittona is the best timekeeping tool for endurance racers. Its advanced and minimalist mechanics use fewer parts than those used in a chronograph, but they are more reliable. The bezel of the watch is engraved with tachymarkers to indicate the speed of the watch.

It is powered by the self-winding Rolex calibre calibre 4130, a Rolex manufacture movement with a power of 100 metres.

This new method works on the same principle, with two interlocking discs in direct frictional contact, which offers significant advantages. The perfectly smooth-running chronograph second hand starts and stops with extreme precision at the push of a button, while the chronograph function starts and stops even at the push of a button. It has been operating for a long time without any adverse effect on the watch’s precision.

The four simple words “Superlative ChronometerOfficially Certified” engraved on the dial refer to the fact that the movement has passed 15 days of rigorous testing by the Swiss Chronometer Testing Centre (COSC), an independent, non-profit organisation.
