The new Datejust that Rolex unveiled at Baselworld 2016 scarcely differs from the Rolex Datejust II. The similar design characteristics set Rolex replica watches apart from other brands. Learn more details in this feature article from WatchTime’s upcoming Special Design Issue 2017.
The cornerstone of this singular distinction was Rolex’s founder, Hans Wilsdorf, a native of Kulmbach, Germany, who registered the brand name in 1908. He put his faith in wristwatches at an early date and set out to rectify their shortcomings: for example, wristwatches were notoriously less accurate than pocketwatches. But Wilsdorf’s Rolex wristwatches soon ticked so precisely that they earned official certification as chronometers. He patented his first watertight watches in 1926, followed by patent protection for automatic winding in 1931. With these two functional abilities, the optimal wristwatch was born — and swiss Rolex positioned itself as the technical leader for precise, watertight, self-winding watches. The label successfully advanced along this path with its divers’ watches, while simultaneously creating structures that guarantee high quality and an outstandingly accurate rate.
Ensured by the chronometer-certified calibre 3235 self-winding movements tested a second time by Rolex after being cased, the chocolate dials Rolex replica watches are able to enjoy incomparable performance.
Self-winding Caliber 3235, on the other hand, is absolutely new. Thanks to a new addition to its barrel and an improvement in the efficiency of its Chronergy escapement, this manufacture movement can amass a power reserve of up to 70 hours. Like all Rolex replica calibers, it runs with chronometer-worthy precision. Its accuracy is confirmed by the “Superlative Chronometer” certificate, which Rolex introduced in 2015. With this certification, Rolex defines a new standard for its watches. Only timepieces that keep time within the required tolerance range of -2 to +2 seconds per day are allowed to leave the factory. Rolex accordingly upholds stricter tolerances than the COSC, which permits daily deviations between -4 and +6 seconds.
