Speaking of Rolex’s new products, you first consider the “left-handed” Greenwich II. Because the outer ring is green and black, it is called the “Sprite Ring” by cousins. Highly recognizable, it is undoubtedly the blockbuster of the year. On the other hand, the new Airmaster with the addition of a crown guard bridge is also more popular. It has upgraded its movement and appearance to enhance its sports attributes and is further closer to noob Rolex replica professional watches. In addition, the women’s journal type of the flower plate, the 18K gold yacht, and the platinum ice blue DD all gained a lot of exposure. However, the new ghost king Ref.136660 could be more manageable among all the latest products. Not only are a few cousins discussing it in the forum, but even the office has yet to write any news materials. We also learned about it from the quietly updated details page, which is the most low-key new product of Rolex.
Unlike Airmaster’s iterative product, which has been upgraded from a 31-series movement to a 32-series action, the Ghost King Ref.126660, released in 2018, is already equipped with a Cal.3235 movement. The 2022 Ghost King has not changed the movement model and still uses the Cal.3235 movement, which is more based on the fine-tuning of the appearance. The following is a summary of the upgrade points of this new product based on the information released by foreign media.
From the front, the most significant upgrade of the new ghost king is the calendar window. It has a larger display area, allowing the wearer to read the date. Rolex uses a convex lens calendar display window for the Submariner and the Sea-Dweller. Originally derived from the log type, this design has become one of Rolex’s iconic elements. However, among the many diving fake watches for sale of Rolex, only Ghost King did not add a convex lens calendar display window. The reason is that the convex lens calendar window is not formed in one piece but is bonded by two pieces of sapphire glass through a unique process. The waterproof level of Ghost King is 3900 meters, and the pressure it receives during deep diving is several times that of ordinary diving watches. Therefore, to ensure stability, Ghost King’s upgrade of the calendar window only increases the display area, rather than using a convex lens window.
The second upgrade of Ref.136660 is the bezel. The ceramic outer ring of the new ghost king has become more slender, which can enhance the exquisite sense of the watch to a certain extent. At the same time, the brand has also optimized the rotation mechanism of the outer ring, and the new product has a better rotation feel. The mirror is also one of the upgrade points. The sapphire mirror with reflective coating can effectively resist strong light refraction and make reading more straightforward.
The luminous effect has also been optimized. Early Rolex watches all used Super-LumiNova luminous, currently the most mainstream material. However, Rolex, produced after 2008, stopped using Super-LumiNova, and then changed to the brand’s exclusive Chromalight brilliant. Chromaligh has a longer glow time and a stable luminosity. The 2022 Ghost King Ref.136660 adopts the latest generation Chromalight luminous solution, and its bright duration and brightness are improved compared with the previous generation Chromalight luminous.
After reading the front, let’s look at the changes in the bottom cover. In the old Ref.126660, the black “ROLEX OYSTER DEEPSEA ♕ SEA-DWELLER 12800 ft = 3900 m” is surrounded by the titanium alloy bottom cover to mark the series and waterproof performance of the watch. In the bottom surface of the new Ref. 136660, this material has an exclusive name: “RLX titanium alloy.”
However, regarding the new ghost king Ref.136660, real photos have yet to be seen at home and abroad, and more details about this product need further confirmation. Ghost King has not been well recognized among players for a long time, which is not only reflected in the market share of the product but also directly reflected in the secondary market. It is true that with a diameter of 44 mm and a case thickness of more than 17 mm, it is not friendly to the general body of Asians. This means the King of Ghosts has not been as universal as a water ghost since its birth. It is work prepared by a few cousins, so it is reasonable for the brand to upgrade it in a low-key manner.
