[What is Rolex? ]
If you ask, "Which luxury watch brand do you know?", the most popular answer would be Rolex!
Regardless of the knowledge level of watches, there is no other brand that boasts overwhelming name recognition all over the world. It is no exaggeration to say that he is the king of the watch world that has earned the trust of others.
At the time of its founding, it collaborated with Egler and Oyster , which are also strong watch parts manufacturers, and repeatedly invented and developed many innovative technologies. More than one !
The company's main models such as the Daytona, Submariner, and GMT Master are extremely difficult to purchase at a fixed price, as many people are doing what is commonly known as a marathon, searching for models by visiting boutiques all over the place. I can say
If you really want to get it, you have no choice but to buy it at a premium price that jumps up several times the list price.
It has a high asset value like pure gold, and you can't take your eyes off the market charts of the watch market!
The history of the company up to that point is precisely due to the foresight of the founder, Mr. Hans Wilsdorf .
It was in 1905 that, as a brilliant young entrepreneur , he overcame the opposition of those around him and founded a watch shop in London.
[From a pocket watch to a wristwatch]At that time, when it came to wearing a watch, the mainstream style was to put a pocket watch in and out of the pocket of the clothes, and watches worn on the wrist were extremely unreliable due to their lack of accuracy and durability. A lot of times.
On the other hand, in this era when sports competitions such as polo and yachting and outdoor activities began to become popular, there was a latent need for an elegant timepiece that was more convenient to carry than a pocket watch and could be trusted .
Focusing on that, he devoted all his energy to creating pioneering and reliable watches that meet the needs of the times.
[Challenging the world's first waterproof watch]
Compared to pocket watches, wristwatches come into direct contact with the outside air and the skin, so it was a major challenge in the production of watches to sufficiently protect against moisture, dust, moisture, and sweat in the air.
However, Oyster, which had a cooperative relationship with the company at the time , developed the world's first waterproof case (Oyster case) ! In 1926 , Rolex announced the Oyster, the world's first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch , and succeeded in making its name known worldwide as a pioneer of waterproof wristwatches.
The superiority of the Oyster case lies in the fact that the case is carved out of a solid piece of metal, maintaining a high level of robustness , and the back cover and crown are screwed into the case . This technology protects the internal movement and succeeds in perfect sealing! It was such an innovative idea that it acquired a technology patent . Although the Oyster reached its final form in the early 1940s , it is still loved by many enthusiasts as the originator of many current models.
[Charm of antique Rolex]
In general, the company's watches manufactured before the 1970s have built a solid watch genre as antique Rolex, which is a condensed state-of-the-art technology at the time.
Of course, compared to the company's current product, the current product is superior in terms of functionality, but with regular maintenance, it is an excellent product that can be used without problems even with a wristwatch that is about 70 years old!
The charm of antique Rolex can be said to be that the lowest price range can be purchased from around 200,000 yen , the cute small and rounded case that is unique to antiques that is not found in current models, and the luminous paint and the burnt condition of the dial .
The discoloration of dials that inevitably occurs over time is a tasteful world with individual differences that are said to be the same in the world!
With current products, if the dial is the same model with the same color, there is almost no individual difference, but the opposite is true for antiques.
Even with the same type of model with the same color dial, I prefer A for the degree of burning of the dial, and B for the degree of corrosion of the hands and indexes. Antique Rolex is truly full of charm to choose a special one for a once-in-a-lifetime chance .
The Oyster Date introduced this time is a popular model with excellent maintenance and reliability among antique Rolex!
The oyster case from that time is fitted with a plastic windshield that is unique to antiques.
The dial is original at the time , and the luminous paint is tritium ! Unlike Redan, the dial has not been restored, and the original dial is the same as when it was manufactured, making it a very valuable piece.
The hour and minute hands are pencil type , and the indexes are bar type , giving you a classic look.
The sunray (sunburst) finish of the silver-colored dial reflects the light in a fan-like shape, creating a sophisticated gem worthy of long-lasting use.
The silver color design changes its expression depending on the angle of light
This model is equipped with the famous Cal.1215 , and is recommended for antique beginners! The Cal.1200 series has a reputation for being excellent in functionality and durability among the movements developed in the 1950s !
As a hand-wound watch with a date display, you can fully enjoy the real pleasure of admiring an antique watch while winding the mainspring every day.
The bracelet is in mint condition , which means it is in the finest vintage condition.
Unusually for an antique watch, it comes with an inner box and warranty (October 1967) !
