The Latest Rolex Explorer II equipped with the 42mm watchcase

Image result for Rolex Explorer II

Since 1971, Rolex Explorer II began to travel around the world, attending countless expeditions. Its 24 hours needles can let speleologists and polar explorers distinguish day and night easily, which is especially valuable. The latest Rolex Explorer II equipped with the 42mm watchcase, which obviously be the perfect equipment for explorers challenge the limit.The arrow on the 216570 is larger and the tip has a point which extends out to the minute markers, whereas the red hand on the 16570 was longer and smaller. Another reason why the new 24-hour hand is so appealing is that the entire hand is colored orange, but the older model only featured a red shaft with a black point. The orange color is an homage to the original Explorer II which was launched in 1971.

Authentic Rolex Explorer II 216570 Orange Baselworld 2011 WatchIt’s finally here. The timepiece we’ve all been waiting for since Baselworld 2011. The new Rolex Explorer II (model 216570) has finally hit stores in the United States and it is as amazing as it looked behind the display case in Basel.

The big change with this new version of the classic Rolex offering is in the size. This time around, the Explorer II has been modernized with a slightly larger 904L stainless steel case. Now stretched out to a 42mm diameter (45mm including the crown), the 216570 rests comfortably on the wrist without weighing your arm down. The thickness or height of the case is 12mm. And although it has been beefed up to an XL, the design still maintains the traditional satin brushed lugs and polished sides. The new bracelet is a heavy duty stainless steel Oysterlock featuring the 5mm Easylink extension.

The next big update, and also the first visible difference, is the new orange GMT hand. Other than the size, this is probably the biggest “wow factor” in this new version. The orange hand pops out against the white or black dial, and matches so nicely with the Explorer II font. The hands on the new 216570 are larger than the older 16570 and hold more lume for a clearer view at night. The lume is Rolex Chromalight that is claimed to last up to 8 hours after a full charge. We have not tested this, but it does seem to last longer than the 16570’s green lume which glows much brighter at first.The updated Explorer II still has a fixed stainless steel bezel with 24 hour markers. The rehault has “RolexRolex” etched on the inside with a serial number at 6:00 and the Rolex crown logo at 12:00.Unlike the newer GMT Master II (116710) which was bumped up to a Triplock crown, the new Explorer II still keeps water and dust out with the protection of the Twinlock screw-down crown and carries a water resistance of 100m or 330ft.

Now on to the engine of this baby! The Explorer II is powered by the newest Rolex caliber 3187 (in-house of course) automatic movement. Even though the watch is capable of displaying two separate time zones, time setting is a cinch with the rapid setting GMT hand.

What does it mean to be a Modern Gentleman?

The Classique 5157 combines a contemporary ideal – an ultra-thin dress watch in white or yellow gold – with characteristic Breguet innovations, from the blued hands in steel to the self-winding movement. The heartbeat of history on your wrist, if you will.The Classique 7147 with black alligator strap. A watch such as this should be just like its wearer – the quiet extrovert in the room. The Arabic Breguet numerals work harmoniously with a more contemporary dial in “Grand Feu”. A watch with refined, modern élan.

That indomitability is its own reward and at the same time a slight curse. Ameliorate its effect on other On champagne: a glass lifts the spirits and sharpens the wits but ‘a bottle produces the opposite effects’s by always being the wittiest, brightest and least boring person you can be.It’s much more important to invest in looks that favour your age, lifestyle and outlook. Whether these come from this season’s collections or a vintage stall is irrelevant. By the way, ‘investing’ is a highly charged word: it’s better to consider clothing and accessories as interesting life partners rather than dull heirlooms.

Does anyone know what ‘timeless style’ actually means? I think what’s important is to find a style that works for you and your personality. I wouldn’t say it is vital to construct a rigid uniform, perse, but by the time you’re in your mid-twenties you should have a pretty good idea of what silhouette and style tics work for you. Use what you know as your sartorial foundations – narrow black jeans or a crisp button-down white shirt, for example – and then pick up various trends along the way. Trends, of course, are cyclical.

Introducing a Breitling Superocean Heritage

“Breitling Superocean Heritage”的图片搜索结果

One of the big announcements at this year’s Baselworld watch fair was the alliance forged between two powerhouse tool watch brands: Tudor (part of the Rolex enterprise) and the formerly independent Breitling, now owned by private equity house CVC Capital Partners.

Under this arrangement, each will supply the other with items missing from their stock list. Thus, Tudor gains access to the Grenchen brand’s BR01 in-house chronograph, while Breitling receives Tudor’s MT5612 automatic movement, now dubbed the B20, which has been put to use in the new Superocean Heritage II series, celebrating 60 years since the launch of its first “dive watch”. Available in 42mm or 46mm automatic and 46mm chronograph versions, all benefit from a ceramic ring adorning the steel bezel, to minimise wear, as well as subtly updated hands and markers. In addition, the COSC-certified B20 movement now delivers 70 hours of power reserve.

All models feature blue, black or bronze finishes and a choice of strap material: crocodile, rubber and a new rubber-leather composite. Alternatively, a mesh strap can be fitted, in line with the 1957 original.

Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT

As ever today with watch collectors and aficionados, along with fashion forward men and women throughout the globe. The average size today on most men’s timepieces is approximately 42mm in diameter, while the average size on most women’s watch styles is approximately 37mm in diameter.

The oversized watch trend started in the early part of this century with popular watchmakers TAG Heuer, Invicta, U-Boat and Breitling offering extra-large models for men with cases measuring more than 42mm in diameter and 15mm thick. The trend was soon adapted for women by watchmakers TechnoMarine and Michele, who introduced larger scale women’s watches with chronograph dials and generously oversized cases. Prior to this, most men’s watches averaged 37mm to 39mm diameter in size, while most women’s watches were well under 30mm in diameter in size.

Bold, amply proportioned timepieces for men and women are the focus of attention this week at World of Watches with our Oversized Watches: Go Big Or Go Home Event for 2017 event. Over 250 popular styles are featured in the promotion, including highly-sought after styles from Invicta, Lucien Piccard, Breitling, Michael Kors, TechnoMarine, Raymond Weil, Ingersoll, U-Boat, Glycine, Casio, Luminox and Swiss Legend.

Invicta watches have been at the forefront of the oversized watch movement and the Swiss-made Invicta Reserve Chronograph in stainless steel does not disappoint with a robust 52mm diameter, 22mm thick case in brushed stainless steel, presented on an attractive triple-link bracelet in brushed and polished stainless steel with black ion-plated stainless steel accents on the bracelet, crown and push-piece covers.

The unidirectional rotating stainless steel bezel with a screened black enamel top ring surrounds the black dial with three subdials, date and day windows, luminous skeleton hands and markers. Features include 1/10th of second, small-second and 30-minute countdown timers.Additional features include a scratch resistant Flame Fusion crystal above the dial, a locking screw-down crown and case back for water-resistance to 500 meters or 1,650 feet and premium quartz movement inside.

Rolex President

The Rolex President is noted as the most luxurious of all luxury watches. When the watch was first released to the market in 1956 and named the Rolex Day-Date, it quickly overtook the Rolex DateJust as the brand’s high-end watch model. When President Eisenhower was spotted wearing a Rolex Day-Date in public, the watch was quickly coined the Rolex President.

In the tennis world, the Rolex President is tied to Roger Federer. In fact, as he hoisted his 2012 Wimbledon trophy over his head following his victory over Andy Murray, upon his left wrist was a 41mm Everose Rolex President provided by the Rolex Company. Much like Federer, the Rolex President is a true classic and amazingly precise.

Once again, some of the world’s most influential women wear both the ladies and men’s versions of the President Rolex. Stars associated with the Rolex President include Jennifer Anniston, Hillary Clinton, Victoria Beckham ( she loves her Rose Gold Daytona ), Renee Zellweger, and many more.

New and pre-owned Rolex President Watch models are available in a wide variety of styles. One can choose from the most simple and classic models featuring 18k yellow gold and diamond less face to a platinum model with plenty of diamond bling. Some of the hottest Rolex President models are those with Rose gold, oversized cases and bracelets, and rare vintage models.

Both the Rolex President and the Rolex Daytona are amazing investments in today’s world. Much of their value is based on the high-demand of both precious metals and Rolex watches in general. If you are going to buy a new Rolex, be sure to select an Authorized Rolex dealer to ensure authenticity. There is sure to be one around you but click here for a list of Rolex dealers near you.

With a bit of research, it is possible to find rare vintage watches that are amazingly unique and valuable.

No matter which way you stack it, both the Rolex President and the Rolex Daytona are amazingly beautiful watches for wear both on and off the tennis court. Finding the Rolex of your dreams can be an enlightening adventure…full of fascinating history, discovery, and inspiration!

THE NEW ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL AIR-KING WITH BLACK DIAL

The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist’s Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex , with no distractions. In 2014, however, it was discontinued, and its status as the entry level Rolex as well as the purist’s Rolex was taken in 2015 by a new version of the Oyster Perpetual. In 2016, however, the Air-King returned and it is emphatically not your father’s Air-King. With a 40 mm case, new “Superlative Chronometer” certification, complete overhaul to the dial, and the same arrangements for resistance to magnetism as the Milgauss, it may be an Air-King in name, but in the hand and on the wrist, it’s an almost entirely new watch.

The Black dial rolex oyster perpetual air king replica watch ref. 116900 features a dial very similar to that on the Rolex Explorer I ref. 214270 we reviewed here; but this time, including a white minute scale with white numerals. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 features a black glossy dial with applied hour numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 is fitted with the legendary Oyster bracelet with satin-brushed finish. The bracelet features solid links throughout and is fitted with a folding Oysterclasp equipped with the Easylink system that allows the wearer to extend the last link on the bracelet by 5 mm.

The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

In fact, it’s such a departure from what we’ve all gotten used to thinking of as an Air-King that I almost wish Rolex had named it something else. The retention of the Air-King name means that you have to struggle a little when you first see pictures of the watch – or when you start wearing it – to see it as its own thing, instead of through the veil of years of exposure to something else that had the same name. What is the same, however – Rolex being pretty good at not totally disrupting the connection of any of its watches to earlier models in particular, and to the basic design codes of the company in particular – is the Air-King logo, as if to reassure the skittish that underneath it all, the Air-King is the same purist’s watch you knew and loved once upon a time.

THE GREEN SUBMARINER WATCH

Related image

The latest Submariners carry plenty of the features of the older Submariner models and wearing them is a real pleasure. The ref 16610 is the one with stainless steel and a date but now there’s the all gold and bi-color watches and they have ceramic bezel, bulky lugs and enhanced clasp and bracelet.The Green Submariner is a time limited edition to mark the collection’s 50th anniversary. But take note that Rolex is always known for being vague about years and production numbers so if you want to have the Green model it’s best to buy it now because at any time Rolex could stop its production.

James Bond is the most famous wearer of the very first Rolex Submariner which had no date. He wore it in Dr. No, and the watch he had had no crown guard. We think it’s much older than the 5512. Today, you can get a nice Rolex Submariner 5512 for around $10,000 but if you pick a non-chrono which is the ref 5513 you can get it for around $4000-$5000 complete with papers and a box. Perhaps you can try checking your dad or grandpa’s drawers, maybe you’ll see one lying somewhere gathering dust.Our most loved vintage Rolex Submariner has a date feature, and it’s the reference 1680 model. It came out in 1967 when Rolex finally realized that the date window might come in handy for divers. This 1680 model is known as the Red Submariner. By the 1980s, the watchmaker began using sapphire crystals and eventually shifted to a newer kind of movement. They created a Submariner with the then highly sought after plexi crystal.

The only way to know for sure is to take the watch into an Rolex authorized dealer or other high end watch shop and have them remove the case back and see what kind of movement is inside. That’s the only way to know for sure. The Two Tone Blue dial Submariners are a classic Rolex and are all but impossible to visually verify if one is real or not. Same for the Stainless Steel (SS) Black dial classic model 16610. You may not be able to tell a real one from a fake one unless you have the back removed and check the movement inside. If you’re going to try and buy a used Rolex Submariner on the internet, it is critical that you know who you are buying from.

REVIEW: PANERAI RADIOMIR PAM00685 & PAM00687

With Nobel Prize-winner Marie Curie’s discovery of the material radium in 1898 came a widespread fascination with the stuff. At this point, its deadly properties weren’t known let alone understood, and by the 1920s several companies—Panerai included—had developed commercial uses for the substance. This wasn’t limited to watches: the ‘health’—in inverted commas—benefits of Radium resulted in a radium-lined water container called the ‘Revigator’, which claimed to cure arthritis amongst other things; radium-based foodstuffs like bread and chocolate; and a radium-laced toothpaste given the seal of approval by a Doctor Alfred Curie—no relation to Marie Curie whatsoever. Clinics and spas were dedicated to the supposedly curative properties of radium. The trademark radium glow was even used in cosmetics and children’s toys.Image result for PANERAI RADIOMIR PAM00685 & PAM00687

In 1936, dive gauge manufacturer Officine Panerai and watchmaker Rolex joined forces to build a watch at the request of the Italian Royal Navy. Intended for use during covert, night-time dives, Panerai’s expertise gave what was essentially a complete watch from Rolex that extra level of functionality: a glowing dial. With numerals that shone clear and legible at a consistent and unfaltering rate, the Panerai Radiomir was unstoppable. There was just one tiny problem with it, however—that glowing dial was deadly.Now, radium itself doesn’t glow, but its radiation can excite the electrons in a phosphorescent material like zinc sulphide, which then emits energy as light. This was the basis of Panerai’s glowing Radiomir paint, which it patented in 1916. Note the Italian for ‘patented’, Brevettato, as seen on this Radiomir 685 1938 re-edition. Across the Atlantic in America, meanwhile, and a slew of radium-based paint brands were springing up. Radium was the most expensive material by weight in the world at the time, and the demand was huge. Factories employed thousands of ladies to apply this glowing paint to many different products, including watch dials. When the girls left the factories at night, they themselves glowed. At the time, it was considered a perk.
