If the watch industry also follows the theory of evolution, Rolex must be a true believer in this law.
We are willing to accumulate successful technologies and pass them on to the next generation. Adhering to this steady evolution and avoiding radical innovation has thus become Rolex’s technical philosophy.
Prototype movements of the past generations
So, if you list the old and new Rolexes of the same series, you will see them as a family; open the bottom cover and observe the movement; they also have the same genetic genes.
Since its birth in 1945, Datejust has become a masterpiece of Rolex and has gradually become mature, perfect, and capable of civil and military use.
As the world’s first automatic watch with a window displaying the date, it was not born out of nowhere before this were the technical pavements of the Oyster case (1926) and the Perpetual Oscillation (1931).
After that, the five-bead chain, dog tooth ring, and bubble eyes (1953) became the classic elements of Datejust.
Rolex has launched a new Datejust 36, model Ref. 126231. It is the first 36mm Datejust equipped with the 3235 movement.
Mid-size, rose gold color, rather than a formal small watch, it is better to be nicknamed Boyfriend Watch.
It is dated 36, and the platinum ring is combined with Oyster steel, just like the old Ref. 116234 is not fresh and exciting but is the most versatile and timeless style.
The Datejust 36 was originally a men’s watch, but now it is suitable for both men and women. The dog tooth ring is made of 18K white gold, and the middle case is made of a piece of Oyster steel, equipped with a double lock crown, and is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters. Top quality replica watches.
Interestingly, dental braces were originally a functional waterproof design, but now they have become an eye-catching aesthetic symbol. The golden dog tooth ring has fascinated many people.
The new Ref. 126234 has a black sunray dial, and the hour markers and hands are 18K white gold, which will last forever. The deep black plate and shiny dental rings complement each other.
The five-bead chain completes the Datejust, adding a touch of splendor to the low-key watch. The middle three links of the bracelet are polished, and the two ends are brushed and polished. The Oyster buckle has an easily adjustable link and 5mm “playing space.”
Although I am a big fan of Oysterplate straps, the five-bead chain strap is snugger and more comfortable. After all, comfort is directly proportional to the number of links.
The new Datejust 36 is equipped with caliber 3235. The new escapement system, optimized spring and gear components, and bearing-type automatic thallium make this new watch more accurate, longer-lasting, and stable.
Although judging from the previous use, 3235 is only sometimes praised. But it is rumored that Rolex has been making silent improvements, so please wait and see.
I have always enjoyed small watches because I am not a strong man. I am so paranoid that wearing a small watch with a big wrist will look different. However, this stubborn belief in small, refined, and beautiful watches has become a niche sentiment. Fake watches for sale.
Today, when the Datejust 41 has become popular, Rolex still launches the new 36mm Datejust. Isn’t this paranoia?
In this case, please cherish the remaining small-diameter models; they will likely be fleeting.
