Hublot enters the metaverse and builds the Hublot Love Football Stadium

Hublot cheap has teamed up with MEIS and Spatial to build a stadium with a capacity of 90,000 spectators in a virtual world ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. As the official timekeeper of world football, Hublot announced the “Hublot Love Football Metaverse Stadium”, setting the first place again.

The stadium will be a complex of sports, art and digital events, with a structure inspired by the case design of Hublot’s recently released Big Bang e watch. The stadium is the largest venue ever built in Spatial and was designed by respected MEIS architects.

Among luxury watchmaking brands, Hublot is the first to adopt encryption technology. In 2018, the brand celebrated the 10th anniversary of the currency with the launch of a limited-edition Big Bang Meca-10 P2P watch that can only be purchased with Bitcoin.

This is Hublot’s first foray into the metaverse, and the brand has chosen to work hand in hand with Spatial. The latter is a Web3 platform dedicated to assisting creators and brands in creating visually stunning 3D spaces.

Managed by seasoned leaders from Apple, Nest, LucasArts and Disney, Spatial is the home of luxury brands in the metaverse, Web3. Visitors can explore the virtual stadium inspired by the Hublot Big Bang e watch from all angles, with free access via mobile phone, computer or Oculus device.

As part of Hublot’s Love Football campaign, special exhibitions will be held at the brand’s boutiques in luxury shopping malls in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand during November, offering an exclusive experience of visiting stadiums with VR equipment.

Hublot is the Official Timekeeper of the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ for the fourth consecutive year

Hublot is proud to be the Official Timekeeper of the FIFA 2022™ World Cup for 4 consecutive years. The countdown to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar has begun, and Hublot’s innovative new GEN 3 connected watch is ready to count every minute.

Nyon, 14 October 2022 – Hublot loves football!

We are very excited about the start of this year’s Football Festival and wish everyone Good luck to the participating teams. Hublot loves football!” Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe.

The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is the Gen3 connected watch in the Hublot collection, the highest performing and exciting Big Bang e to date. The newly designed dedicated football app features a larger, improved HD screen where every moment of the game will be captured.

From the countdown to the most anticipated moment of the World Cup, the FIFA World Cup™ final, Hublot will be at the heart of the action. Ahead of the game, the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will enter a countdown mode, recording the days leading up to the first match between Qatar and Ecuador on November 20. Then, 15 minutes before each game, the watch will provide team line-up and player information, so the wearer can enjoy the details from the comfort of their wrist.

When a match begins, the watch will automatically enter “match mode” and activate “timeline”, a feature built specifically for this watch that will help fans capture the most memorable and important moments in football.

Here’s how it works: On the outer edge of the dial there will be a five-part scale indicating the first and second half, the extra time allowed for each half, and the half time. If a goal is scored, the watch will display an animation of the match event mentioning the player’s name, and the football symbol will appear on the scale at the appropriate minute mark. The same thing happens if there is a yellow card, a red card or a penalty.

If the game goes beyond normal time, the watch display will automatically switch to overtime mode and then to penalty shootout mode again to prevent the game from going into a penalty shootout. Each penalty is recorded by a football with a green or red outline to indicate whether the attempt was successful or not. The final “During Game Animation” shows when the game is over, and the final score.

At any time during the race, the wearer can replay these events by scrolling across the dial using the watch’s crown. After five seconds of inactivity, the watch automatically switches to a “low power mode” to save battery power. This legible, ergonomic, great interaction is unique to Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

In metal, the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is a perfect blend of fine watchmaking and high-end electronics. The imposing and beautifully designed 44mm case is crafted in micro-blasted polished black ceramic and black titanium, echoing Hublot’s iconic mechanical watch, the Big Bang.

However, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 4100 processor powered by the latest version of Wear OS by Google™ (Wear OS 3) replaces the most advanced watchmaking technology. A dedicated app tailored for the watch provides the wearer with a seamless experience worthy of one of the most exclusive watch brands in the world. The watch’s impressive hardware specs include an accelerometer, gyroscope, microphone, speaker, GPS, and a heart rate monitor. It also comes with a full suite of pre-installed apps that allow the wearer to stay connected and track activity, health, and more. Wearers can discover more great apps through Google Play on the watch.

It also promises all-day battery life and a two-hour charge from empty to full. Bluetooth 5.0 connects it to a variety of devices and accessories. Compatible with Android and iOS, the watch is water resistant up to 3 ATM.

The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will also be highly personalised, with dozens of dialing options available through the accompanying smartphone app. The official version features a burgundy dial and black and burgundy-lined rubber strap, inspired by the flag colors of Qatar, the host country of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Fans can also choose from the 32 participating countries in their own coloured dial and strap designs. This is a watch designed for fashion-conscious, active, football-loving people!

“For a football player, the World Cup is really special. It’s a wonderful thing to hear the national anthem on the football pitch. To hear the crowd in the stadium, to score goals, what a beautiful thing. It’s really special. The feeling. Off the field, this event is unbelievable, it brings people from all over the world together. This is a special moment for us to live together in peace. Good luck to all teams in the competition. I wish Hublot replica The table can host a wonderful World Cup. May the best team win.” Bailey, Hublot ambassador.

Spec Sheet: The Rolex Submariner Bridging the Retro-Modern Gap

Transition Sub that just finished work.

The Rolex Submariner – what can we say about the watch we haven’t talked about yet? From delving into the history of the model through our reference points, to taking a week-long “week on the wrist” in New York City with the latest Rolex Submariner, we’ve said a lot.

The Rolex Submariner Reference 16610 is a bridge between two eras at Rolex. Launched in 1987, it’s part retro, part modern. As one of Crown’s earliest “five-digit” reference numbers—that is, a model with a five-digit reference number instead of the four it used throughout the year—this Submariner is the brand’s first foray into classic diving watch and turn it into a luxury item. luxury watches for sale

Man, did it work? The Cyclops date at 3 o’clock, the Mercedes hands, the unidirectional diving bezel – all the instantly recognisable signs that make the Submariner a Submariner are here. While the case design has been updated, it’s still a classic wearable size, 40mm in diameter and 13mm thick. Rolex increased the water resistance from 200 meters to 300 meters and added a sapphire crystal for a more modern and durable diver’s watch. It also makes the Submariner more luxurious.

All in all, the 16610 model is perfect for those who want a little bit of everything: a little retro, a little modern – but still a Submariner.

Panerai launches Luminor Moon Phase for women

Panerai’s atypical statement of elegance.

A compact version of the iconic Panerai fake watch that debuted in 2016, the Luminor Due is essentially a scaled-down version of the military-style original that can easily fit on smaller wrists. So far, the Luminor Due has remained minimalist, with no complications other than the date display.

But now Panerai has introduced the more refined Luminor Due Luna, which has a small seconds and moon phase display with a solid gold moon disc.

I like the compact size of the Due, and the more formal shape that allows it to double as a dress watch. Although the original full-size Luminor had a clean, almost elegant design, its sheer size and stark aesthetic meant it could only be a military-style watch. The Due, on the other hand, manages to retain the silhouette of the original Luminor while being modestly elegant.

For this reason, the new Luna is an appealing watch. At just 38mm wide, it’s noticeably more wear-resistant, and a sculpted solid gold moon adds a touch of brilliance. The all-gold model is paired with a mother-of-pearl dial for even more luxury.

Interestingly, the Luminor Due is primarily aimed at female clients, but the models have a masculine aesthetic. The Luna continues with a steel and metallic blue dial, a combination that makes it look very much like a traditional men’s watch.

The dial design is largely classic Panerai, although the proportions seem a little off due to the small diameter of the dial. Both the hour markers and the twin dials feel too large compared to the case, giving it an exaggerated aesthetic, although the layout may have been made with legibility in mind.

It is worth mentioning that the internal P.900 movement is the entry-level movement used by many brands in the Richemont group except Panerai. Considering the Luna’s retail price, the movement is simple but adequate, making it at the affordable end of the Panerai range of automatic watches.

Naturally, the Luna is clearly too fancy to be compared to the traditional Marina Militare Panerai, so it is definitely not suitable for collectors with a traditional mindset. But it’s a useful option for those who just want the Panerai look without the big size or clean design.Luminor Due

a golden moon
The Luna debuts in four styles, from a basic stainless steel version with a brushed “sunburst” dial to a top-of-the-line gold version with a mother-of-pearl dial.

It is worth noting that the stainless steel model is also equipped with a matching bracelet designed with the Panerai logo. It consists of links modeled after the Luminor crown lock bridge, with a brushed outer part and a polished center part. The heavy bracelet will definitely give Luna more weight.

But the Luna’s highlight is the moon phase at three o’clock. Housed within a traditional semi-circular aperture, the moon phase disc is a two-piece structure consisting of a golden moon against the backdrop of the night sky. But the moon is actually a disc made of 24k solid gold with dimples carved into it to reproduce the craters on the actual lunar surface. fake watch for sale

The night sky background, on the other hand, has a fine grained surface with scattered sculpted spheres representing the stars. While the stars are not as delicate as the golden moon, they are more unusual than the printed stars on most moon phases.

Inside the watch is the P.900/MP, an automatic movement with a three-day power reserve. It’s finished in the brand’s usual minimalist style, with neat brushed bridges and blue-filled engravings. However, the movement is only visible on the gold version, as the stainless steel model has a closed caseback.

Although custom-made for Panerai, the P.900 is actually a movement developed by Valfleurier, the movement specialist behind many of the Richemont brands. Considered a no-frills workhorse for entry-level models, this movement is also known as the Cartier 1847 MC (found in the latest Pasha, for example), the IWC 32000 series (found in the base model pilot’s watch), and the Baume & Mercier Baumatic.

Patek Philippe Introduces Nautilus 5711 Olive Green Dial Watch for Final Production Year

Patek Philippe Introduces Nautilus 5711 Olive Green Dial Watch for Final Production Year

New Patek Philippe watches will be unveiled at Watches & Wonders 2021 – we just didn’t expect any of them to be from the Nautilus 5711 collection. That’s because Patek Philippe confirmed back in 2021 that the 5711 (40mm wide steel case, three-hand movement) Nautilus would be discontinued. They just don’t know when it will be retired. Patek Philippe may even release more 5711 models in 2021 – the Geneva-based company says it will produce this generation of iconic Gerald Genta-designed luxury sports watches that the enthusiast community has known about for the past 15 years at this point.

Now in April 2021, the latest addition to the Patek Philippe Nautilus is the 5711/1A-014, which features a stainless steel case with a metallic olive green dial. This is the first ever green dial Nautilus watch, and if you’ve been following recent timepiece releases, you’ll now see that green is the latest trending color for top timepieces. Patek Philippe calls this their “Sunburst Olive Green” facet, which combines the signature horizontal relief dial with applied gold markers and matching hands.

This is Patek Philippe’s second modern sports watch with an olive green dial treatment. The first time was in 2019 when Patek Philippe introduced the Aquanaut 5168G with a similar green hue to the dial. The only major difference is that the Aquanaut has an 18k white gold case, while this Nautilus has a steel case. Also interesting is that Patek Philippe also released a diamond-decorated version of the olive green Nautilus – only in the steel case. I say this because for the most part, Patek Philippe diamond-set watches are made of gold or platinum. The Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1300A-001 (5711/1300A) has the same 40mm wide steel case (8.3mm thick) but with a 3.6 carat baguette-cut diamond on the bezel. It’s a rather masculine way to enjoy diamonds – making it an evening version of this semi-sport bracelet watch.

The success of the Patek Philippe Nautilus watch is largely due to the product’s traditional comfort and composure, as well as the level of support it has received from watch collectors. Originally designed by renowned watch designer Gerald Genta, the Nautilus today features more of a financial asset than just a luxury watch. That’s because Nautilus watches are naturally limited in production (the case is finished like a jewel, so it can take as long to make as the movement), and they’re usually associated with price stability. Given the uncertainty in the larger investment market, a watch like the Nautilus may have gotten too much attention because it could be resold to collectors for more than retail. In some cases, well above the retail price.cheap watch

Inside the watch is Patek Philippe’s in-house manufactured 26-330 SC automatic movement – which can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback window. As a timepiece, the Patek Philippe Nautilus has a lot of charm. It is clearly well-made, very comfortable, has an elegantly thin automatic movement, and is stylish and versatile. You can read the full review of the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 watch here. It is one of the most popular “steel bracelet watches” and its popularity will remain unchanged even after Patek Philippe ceases production of the 5711 – as they have confirmed the successor to the current generation three-hand Nautilus On the way.

No doubt some collectors will be annoyed by the rollercoaster news that Patek Philippe 5711 is on the market. First it’s discontinued, then it’s not completely discontinued… wait… The quagmire of aftermarket pricing strategies is a minefield for those looking to buy. The best way is to buy directly from an authorized cheap Patek Philippe dealer – but that’s easier said than done.

The heart of the watch is not enough?

The balance wheel is called the heart of the watch, and the swing of the balance wheel has a decisive influence on the running time of the watch. Around 2010, the multi-balance wheel began to be integrated into the watch design. The purpose of the multi-balance wheel at the beginning of the design is to connect two or more balance wheels through a differential, so that the error between the balance wheels can be averaged and the accuracy and reliability can be improved. The representative work of the multi-balance wheel.

Freak S is the most eye-catching work in Athens this year, and it is also the most dazzling Athens watch in my opinion so far. The biggest feature of FREAK S is that Athens designed the entire movement into an interstellar spaceship. The aventurine disc with an hour hand display turned it into a sea of ​​stars. I talked to you about aventurine, this artificial glass material, it can be said It is the most suitable material for creating a star disk. The huge carrousel mechanism rotates once an hour, the minute hand shows the bow of the combat ship, and the movement balance wheel and escapement are all integrated on the carrousel, and the second half is like the propeller of the spacecraft. Athens made a double balance wheel for the first time, using its best silicon technology to create two silicon balance wheels, parallel to the left and right, and inclined at 20 degrees. The inclination is to be more beautiful, so that the wearer can better appreciate its beating, and the silicon balance wheel has a kind of lightness and beauty due to the material and dynamic effect. Double balance wheels, connected to the differential at the rear of the “spaceship”, drive the movement through the differential, this differential can average the error of the left and right balance wheels, one with error, one without error, as long as the differential After averaging, the error shrinks. The UN-251 movement assembled in the watch also uses a silicon automatic grinding machine chain system. Through four symmetrical pawls, it captures subtle movements and converts them into energy, which is twice as efficient as the traditional winding structure. , 72 hours of full chain power. This FREAK S, with a 45mm diameter, has a case made of rose gold, black-plated titanium and ceramic.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15407BC.GG.1224BC.01

Product Model: 15407BC.GG.1224BC.01
Watch Diameter: 41mm
Case Thickness: 10mm
Movement type: automatic
Movement model: CALIBRE 3132
Case material: 18k white gold with hammering process
Waterproof depth: 50 meters

At the Geneva Watch Fair in 2016, Audemars Piguet integrated the double balance wheel with the hollow design and launched the Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Hollow Watch. The double balance wheel style on the picture, which uses the frosted gold process to make the case, is the most beautiful one in the series in my opinion. The ancient gold hammering process has a dazzling effect, which is reflected all the time. Very distinctive plate. The biggest feature of Audemars Piguet’s double balance wheel is that it is coaxially driven, that is, the two balance wheels can be understood as being superimposed on a shaft and driven together. Audemars Piguet once introduced that the purpose of making a coaxial double balance wheel is to improve Accuracy and reliability, but a more intuitive understanding is that its structure can be simplified, which means that the structure is simple, and the failure rate, energy loss, and environmental factors will also be smaller. The invention of this double balance wheel structure also benefits from Audemars Piguet’s previous investment in research and development, such as the innovative attempt of the double hairspring single balance wheel, the APRP director of the advanced movement research and development team introduced that they will tend to improve the movement structure by improving the movement structure. To achieve the accuracy of travel time, rather than relying solely on materials, they feel that this is not the professional field of traditional watchmakers. Hollowing is his second highlight. AP has always used hollowing out as his traditional application for high-end styles. Except for the softer hollowing out of CODE 11.59, from pocket watches to royal oak perpetual calendars to concept series, even the original millennium style, these The hollowed-out works belong to the style with a strong sense of architecture, very hard and powerful.

Watch Diameter: 48mm
Movement type: manual mechanical
Movement model: RD101 Quatuor
Case material: black carbon
Waterproof depth: 30 meters

Finally, let us appreciate a Roger Dubuis King series four-spring balance. Roger Dubuis launched the four-spring balance wheel in 2013. After 7 years of research and development, and obtained 2 patents, he successfully developed the world’s first watch equipped with four balance wheels and five sets of differentials. . The four balance wheels are located at the four corners of the disc, and each balance wheel is also inclined at a 45-degree angle. It works in pairs, and each pair of balance wheels is connected to the differential to average out the error caused by gravity. Then average the displacement with the other pair of balance wheels. Five differentials, three adjacent to the balance wheel in the watch’s gear train, one of the three are located on the central gear, the other two are located on the third wheel, and the fourth differential is used to ensure the disc surface The crescent power reserve on the display shows the fifth next to the winding rod and two parallel barrels. Roger Dubuis RD101 hand-wound movement, consisting of 590 parts, producing a 4×4 Hz frequency. In short, this system is to greatly improve the accuracy of travel time. The brand has introduced that the four balance wheel device can offset the gravitational force that the tourbillon can offset in one minute in a very short time. This multi-layer carbon fiber style is a work launched in 2018. The carbon fiber pattern texture of the entire shell is particularly obvious in circles on the shell.

Although the design of the multi-balance wheel is to reduce the time difference of the cheap replica watches, combined with the actual development of the design in the watch field, it is the same as the tourbillon, and collectors do not care how much it can improve the accuracy of the watch. How many errors are reduced, but I simply like the cool effect brought by the multiple beating beauty of multiple balance wheels. Although the above styles are the flagship styles of various brands, the entry threshold is high, but it does not prevent us from appreciating and understanding these special top timepieces.

Panerai launches Luminor BiTempo PAM01360 and PAM01361

Minimalist dual time zone.

Traditionally a vintage-inspired “Marina Militare” diver’s watch, Panerai has recently introduced complications with minimalist, modern execution, such as the recent Luminor Perpetual Calendar.

Perhaps more practical – certainly more affordable – is the new Luminor BiTempo PAM 1360 and PAM 1361 of similar aesthetics – a GMT watch with a striking pale blue tint on a blue or black dial.

initial thought
Given its large diameter and clean dial, the Luminor can accommodate complications well, while still maintaining its typical minimalist style – if the additions are properly integrated. Panerai has done this with BiTempo, which manages to incorporate the date, second time zone and power reserve indicator without getting in the way of the recognizable Panerai aesthetic. In fact, BiTempo can deliver a time-only Luminor across the room.

That said, the second time zone isn’t a new complication to the brand – the movement is an existing one – so the novelty lies mostly in changing dial details like the enlarged date display and blue accents . While I appreciate that the light blue indicator is clear and easy to read, I find the color too muted for an understated military-inspired look.

Dual time zone
The BiTempo has a 44mm Luminor 1950 case and the iconic crown guard. The “sandwich” dial features the iconic Luminor layout with oversized Arabic numerals in the quarter, but has additional date displays, GMT and power reserve displays. Panerai copy

Thanks to the calibration, the dual time zone display is as clear as possible. P9012. The movement has a 12-hour GMT hand for the second time zone instead of the usual 24-hour hand, so there is no need for an additional 24-hour scale. And the GMT hand can be hidden under the local time hand when not in use, further enhancing the minimalism of the dial.

That said, the 12-hour clock in the second time zone means that day and night cannot be discerned from the dial, so the wearer must know this.

While the dial design is simple, the execution is slightly more complex than Panerai’s entry-level models. It has a two-piece “sandwich” construction that displays the hour markers through small holes in the dial. replica watches review

Interestingly, the dial design is slightly different from the traditional Panerai dials with printed minute scales, something that the Panerai dial tradition does not have.

Panerai has several two time zone movements in its stables, the P.9012 in BiTempo is one of the more premium movements. In addition to this, the P.9012 is powered by twin barrels that provide a three-day power reserve.

In addition to its obvious functions, the P.9012 also features a reset to zero, a countdown – when the crown is pulled to set the time, the second hand stops and immediately flies back to the 12 o’clock position, a rare usefulness in watches Function. this price range.

The movement is visible through the back of the display and has a typical Panerai aesthetic, an almost monochromatic, industrial finish with brushed brushed bridges.

Rolex’s upgrade this time can be said to be “unprecedented”

In the eyes of many people, Rolex is actually a bit stubborn, and many watches are sold for decades without much change, which has also attracted a lot of complaints from watch friends. And cheap Rolex seems to have heard everyone’s voice. The new watch released this year has some visible changes, especially the “left-handed” Sprite circle that everyone didn’t expect, which is really surprising. But in addition to this highly regarded “Sprite Circle” GMT, there is also a watch that has undergone very big changes and upgrades. This change can be said to be “unprecedented” for Rolex.

Among Rolex’s new watches this year, the new green and black “Sprite Circle” GMT and the new Airmaster are the two new watches that attract the most attention from players. In addition to these two sports models, there is also a heavyweight Rolex that has undergone a major facelift this year, which is Rolex’s new platinum weekday calendar DAY DATE. The new platinum DAY DATE uses a new dogtooth bezel, replacing the previous polished bezel.

Rolex platinum DAY DATE used dog tooth ring for the first time.

Rolex DAY DATE, since its birth in 1956, has launched a platinum case model. You know, from 1956 to 2021, in the past 65 years, the Rolex DAY DATE platinum case model has been using a polished bezel and has not changed.

As a result, the gold DAY DATE, rose gold DAY DATE, and platinum DAY DATE all use a dog-tooth bezel, but the platinum DAY DATE uses a polished bezel. As soon as you see the DAY DATE with the “polished bezel”, you can recognize it at a glance. This is the most expensive platinum case DD in the DAY DATE family.

But things changed this year (2022). Rolex replaced the platinum shell DAY DATE with a “dog tooth ring” and completely discontinued the “grinding ring” platinum DD. A break with a 65-year-old tradition. From then on, the Rolex DAY DATE family, regardless of gold, platinum, rose gold, or platinum, has no polished bezel, and the dog tooth ring “unifies the rivers and lakes” (except for the dog tooth, the bezel is diamond-encrusted).

Why does Rolex only use dog teeth ring for platinum DD to this day?

Because, Rolex couldn’t make platinum dog teeth ring before.

Platinum is the most valuable precious metal in watches. Compared with 18K gold such as gold, platinum, and rose gold, platinum has a high melting point and high hardness, making it difficult to recast and polish. Platinum is expensive and difficult to machine. This is why, among the famous watches, the platinum case is 30% or more higher than the public price of the 18K gold case for the same watch.

Rolex dog teeth ring, with a large number of facets and all polished, 18K gold is easy to make because it is relatively soft. In the past, platinum has not made dog tooth rings, and can only use a relatively simple polished bezel for more than 60 years. From the actual effect, the dog tooth ring has a large number of reflective surfaces, and the effect is definitely better than a simple polished bezel. It was reported before that Rolex finally broke through the manufacturing technology of platinum dog teeth, so this year, the dog teeth ring was completely changed on the platinum DAY DATE.

Rolex’s new platinum DD comes in two sizes, 40mm and 36mm.

40mm version, model number 228236.

36mm version, model number 128236.

The two models, 40mm and 36mm, are dog-tooth rings, head bracelets, and use the iconic “ice blue” dial of Rolex platinum watches. Whenever you see a Rolex with an “ice blue” dial, whether it is a DAY DATE or a Daytona, you can instantly recognize that this is a platinum Rolex. It should be noted here that in addition to the ice blue plate, Rolex’s platinum DAY DATE also has a white plate, a black plate, a silver plate, a green plate, and a gray plate, but only “ice blue” is the exclusive color of Rolex platinum watches.

Apart from the size difference, the biggest difference between the 40mm and 36mm models is the dial hour markers.

40 mm 228238: Use Rolex’s latest three-dimensional Roman numeral hour markers. The three-dimensional time scale has multiple facets, and the three-dimensional effect is very strong and very sharp. At present, this new time scale is only used on the 40mm DD.

36mm 128236: Use the regular Roman hour markers before Rolex. Although it is also a three-dimensional hour-marker, the hour-marker is only polished on the front. This kind of Roman numerals, the log-type DATEJUST is also used, and it is only used on the 36 mm size on the DAY DATE.

HYT H2 Titanium Black DLC 248-DL-00-GF-RA

In terms of size selection, the size of the gold watch is smaller, and the sense of formal wear will be stronger, and 36mm is no problem. The 40mm DAY DATE is updated in terms of design language, and 40mm can be given priority. Here I want to say one more thing, platinum watches are very heavy, even heavier than 18K gold. I have worn a friend’s platinum Rolex, platinum head platinum chain, very heavy.

The new 40mm and 36mm platinum dog tooth DDs both use Rolex’s new generation of 32 series automatic movements (3255 movement). The 32 series movement uses the new Chronergy escapement, which improves the efficiency of the movement and enhances the power of the mainspring. While maintaining 70 hours of power, it has the standard of the Rolex Super Observatory, with an error of +2/-2 seconds per day. And continue to use the Rolex blue niobium hairspring to maintain outstanding anti-magnetic ability. At present, Rolex has popularized the new generation 32 series automatic movement across the board. It has been 7 years since its launch in 2015, and the performance of the movement has passed the test of time. The small crown in the middle of SWISS MADE at 6 o’clock on the dial is a sign of the use of the new 32 series movement.

Although the market of Rolex sports models is now higher, DAY DATE has always been the flagship style of Rolex. This time, the dog-tooth ring replaced the grinding ring, and some players also said that they still prefer the platinum DD of the previous grinding ring.

Well, it’s that time of year again. It seems like just yesterday, we were talking about the lack of changes on the 50th Anniversary Explorer II and the polarized 36mm bi-color Explorer. Nonetheless, now is the time for us to once again explore, dissect and delve into cheap Rolex novelties. This latest batch of novelties is undeniably polarizing, to say the least. With some hits from releases and shutdowns, this year has certainly been a year of divided opinion, with some works coming straight from the left.

Left-handed GMT-Master II, or right-handed?
In one of the most interesting releases of the year, Rolex announced their first left-handed model, a variant of the GMT-Master II, ref. 126720VTNR. With its winding crown at 9 o’clock instead of 3 o’clock on every previous watch, this “destro” variant is said to be the brainchild of Rolex’s left-handed CEO and rocks in exciting and unusual ways The Rolex series fashion. Featuring a black and green Cerachrom bezel, the watch introduced a new colour combination to Rolex’s classic collection and earned it the “Sprite” moniker after soda.

Constructed from stainless steel and with a black dial, like its Pepsi and Batman sibling variants, this will undoubtedly be a difficult watch to get started with, with a long waiting list and a premium secondary market. While it was designed for left-handed collectors to be worn on the right hand, it will no doubt be found on the left hand of many collectors looking for something a little different.

new king of the sky
Under the slogan “Get ready to take to the skies”, Rolex has introduced a brand new product for its iconic Air-King model. Originally launched in 1956 as a cheap watch for pilots, the Air-King was a tool watch, so this latest model has been updated to match its heritage.

Its changes include illuminated 3-6-9 Arabic numerals, an upgraded Glidelock clasp, a larger dial, and a crown guard that protects the crown from shocks. Perhaps the most notable surprise is the relatively unchanged Air-King dial. Inspired by the dials produced by Rolex for the Bloodhound LSR, a rocket-powered car that failed to break the land speed world record, it is thought that the Air-King will finally get a new dial when the time comes. Instead, Rolex has slightly altered the dial so that the “5” at 1 o’clock has a “0” in front of it to improve the symmetry between the numbers.

Day-Date has a new bezel
In addition to a long list of fascinating new dial variants added to the Day-Date collection, such as the onyx dial or the beautiful green sunburst dial they added to the collection, Rolex finally gives us the option of fluted platinum The bezels are on their most luxurious and iconic models. While the fluted bezel has a long history in Rolex’s catalog, it’s only available in gold. The Platinum Day-Date was previously only available with a flat bezel. This is due to the difficulty of working on platinum and creating sharp angles. Finally, this year Rolex has addressed any issues holding them back from offering a platinum fluted bezel and created a range of 36mm and 40mm platinum Day-Date variants featuring the iconic piece.

Yacht-Master 42 Expansion
Rolex was widely expected to introduce a new titanium variant to the Yacht-Master collection due to the existence of the titanium YM42 prototype worn by the Rolex Sailing Ambassador, but they decided to give us an 18kt yellow gold Yacht-Master 42. Joining the 18kt white gold in the 42mm variant, this completes the Yacht-Master presentation as it now comes in every gold alloy and rose gold offered in 42mm and 40mm and 37mm. In addition to the new materials, Rolex is also equipping the Yacht-Master with a new “Falcon’s Eye” dial with a stunning grain pattern and vibrant colors ranging from blue to green.

Diary Dial for Everyone
Following on from the precedent they have set over the past few years, with new Datejust dials entering the market every year, Rolex has launched an extensive range of dials for the Datejust, which undoubtedly means there is something for everyone, if not already . In addition to expanding the Palm and Fluted pattern dials to the 41mm collection, Rolex is also introducing a new sunburst green dial across its entire size range for the Datejust, as well as a new beautiful floral pattern for the 31mm model only. . Available in stunning shades of blue, silver or green, its surface is embellished with diamonds for a stunning effect.

Discontinued Galore
Perhaps the biggest shock so far this year is not the new models and novelties that Rolex has introduced, but the models that Rolex has discontinued. In addition to the older models that the new models have now replaced, Rolex discontinued some very popular watches. Sadly, some of our favorites have already gotten the stamp. The 41mm Oyster Perpetual’s three most popular dial styles; Coral Red, “Tiffany” Turquoise Blue and Yellow. In 36mm, it’s the same as they discontinued the coral red and yellow variants but kept the turquoise color. Considering the short 18-month lifespan of these dials and their incredible popularity with long waiting lists and huge secondary market demand, this is a very interesting and very surprising move.

In addition to the Oyster Perpetual, Rolex discontinued the flat-bezel Platinum Day-Date model and the entire Cellini line, except for one, the Moon Phase model. As their only genuine dress watch, it’s hard to imagine Rolex not taking into account the renewal of the Cellini collection, given its historic significance to Rolex. Like every year, there will be people who love the changes and some who hate them. While we’re happy with these novelties, we’re sorry to say goodbye to some of the most stunning and beloved dials Rolex has ever created. Not to mention they look incredible with our Rolex straps. It’s also valuable, isn’t it?
