    The Oyster Perpetual Series is by far the most recognized and easily identifiable watch. Over time, it has been recognized as a representative of modern watches. The design is full of heritage and exquisite Rolex watchmaking technology, suitable for all occasions.

      The Oyster Perpetual Series has undergone many aesthetic improvements, but its unquestionable design features have always been respected and retained. Today’s Watch House brings you a Rolex Oyster Perpetual series watch, the official model of the watch is: 116000-70200.

      The 36 mm log-type case is elegant and comfortable to wear. Simple three-pin design, sapphire crystal glass, read at a glance. The arched bezel design, these outstanding features have been widely praised since its inception and are still in use today. The Oyster case is an important basis for Rolex’s prestigious reputation and excellent performance. The material is 904L stainless steel, which has high corrosion resistance and is widely used in high-tech, aviation and chemical industries.

      The design of the double-locked winding crown is simple and practical. The double-locking device can ensure that the screw-in crown is completely waterproof, with a depth of 100 meters and sharp edges. The crown is engraved with the Rolex small crown logo.

      The strap uses an oyster strap, consisting of three rows of wide, flat links, which are extremely sturdy. It has always been the most widely used strap in the Oyster series, made of 904L stainless steel.

      Viewed from the side without the crown, this watch is relatively thin, not heavy, and comfortable to wear.

      The Oyster Folding Hidden Buckle opens and closes with an operating clasp, making operation easier and safer to wear. Each time the clasp is closed, the sound is crisp and loud, making people feel at ease.

      I have to say that Rolex still values ​​ergonomics. The design of the oyster lugs is very short. In order to better match the flexibility of the chain strap, the lugs are basically flush with the first bracelet, more like a bracelet Part of it, comfortable and flexible to wear.

      The black dial design is very unique. Except for the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, the other hour positions are replaced by minute digits. The classic small crown design at 12 o’clock position is beautiful and elegant, and the design of the big three hands is clear and clear when reading. The crown at 12 o’clock uses Rolex’s inlay technology. There are two main types of Rolex dial logo production processes, namely transfer and inlay. All inlaid logos will have a slightly larger volume, which is the ‘big crown’ that everyone often mentions. It looks full of three-dimensional and very imposing. It is worth mentioning that there is a white inner ring on the dial that says Certified Oyster Perpetual Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. The Oyster Perpetual is certified by the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Center (COSC), which is what we often call ‘Swiss Observatory Certification’ .

      The bottom case of this watch uses a screw-in caseback and is equipped with a self-winding caliber 3130 developed by Rolex. This movement is equipped with a Parachrom hairspring to help resist the impact of impact and temperature changes. It is also equipped with a half-moon-shaped automatic cymbal, which can freely rotate around the central axis wheel in a single direction, which can continuously deliver natural energy sources to the watch, with a power reserve of 50 hours.

      Summary: In the history of Rolex’s watch development, the Oyster Perpetual model has become a recognized symbol of elegance with its extraordinary aesthetic design. If you want to choose a durable and special Oyster Perpetual watch, this watch’s unique dial design is definitely your best choice. The quotation for this watch is 42,500 RMB.

    Dark Side Of Super Moon Vs. Ceramic Circle Daytona

    It is not too late to get to the topic. Rolex Daytona and Omega Speedmaster are undoubtedly the greatest chronographs on the planet. Both watches have created great achievements at one time. Many watch enthusiasts often face a dilemma when facing these two chronographs. Now, let us have the battle between the strongest Daytona and the strongest Supermaster, the strongest chronograph in the altar is about to begin.

    Dark Side of Speedmaster

       The movement once limited the performance of the Speedmaster, more precisely, the early exploration and experimentation of the coaxial escapement performance delayed the pace of Omega. Once the problem of the movement is completely solved, or the technical characteristics of the coaxial escapement are thoroughly understood, this revolutionary escapement device will bring Omega the absolute power to dominate the altar. In 2011, the Supermaster ended a long wait. A new automatic winding chronograph movement that concentrated all the technical experience of the coaxial escapement for more than 10 years and was completely developed based on the characteristics of the coaxial escapement. born.

    Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Chronograph
       This technical achievement is enough to let the super bully punch things, foot north and south. But Omega feels that this is still not enough. Omega is equipped with a full set of new cases for the Super Speedmaster equipped with the 9300 coaxial chronograph movement. In addition to the ceramic case, the ceramic buckle, and even the ceramic dial. Omega Speedmaster’s opponents have begun to tremble. At this stage, I do not hesitate to praise the dark side of Omega Speedmaster. If the brand’s additional factors are left aside, the dark side of the Omega Moon basically represents the highest level of self-winding chronographs in the watch industry. If you exclude the K gold case and platinum case, the precious metal value, the dark side of the superb moon of the ceramic case is basically the most cost-effective automatic chronograph. I believe that many people will think that I am exaggerating, let me analyze it below.

    Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Chronograph
       The dark side of the Omega Speedmaster uses a ceramic case. Automatic chronographs of the same grade as Omega, and even higher-level brands of automatic chronographs mostly use stainless steel cases, or use a combination of stainless steel case and ceramic bezel. Of course, there are also some automatic chronographs that have a higher positioning than the Omega Speedmaster also use ceramic or titanium cases, but their prices far exceed the dark side of the Speedmaster. At the same price, the dark side of the Speedmaster has the best case configuration (the price will be further analyzed later). In addition, the ceramic case used on the dark side of the Omega Moon has a relatively high level of craftsmanship. For example, watches with a ceramic case rarely have a transparent case back. This is because it is difficult to cut the thread on the ceramic with the current technology, so a few ceramic watches with a transparent bottom cover are first pressed into a steel case fixing ring inside the ceramic case. But the dark side of Super Moon uses a new method. The dark side of Super Speed ​​Moon does not have a fixing ring, even the crown tube. Instead, the movement is directly fixed in the case with screws. While the movement penetrates the bottom, the weight of the watch is only 91 grams. In addition, the dial and buckle of the watch are ceramic, and the hour markers on the dial are platinum. As far as this case and dial is concerned, it is full of technical and exquisite.

    The dark side of the Omega Speedmaster uses an all-ceramic case.
       For Omega, compared to the case material, the 9300 coaxial escapement chronograph movement is a great achievement with more technical content. Diameter 32.5 mm, thickness 7.6 mm, vertical clutch, columnar wheel, 54 jewel shaft eyes, silicon spring, double spring 60-hour power, and observatory certification. This automatic chronograph movement specially developed for coaxial escapement is called The ultimate technical achievement of the coaxial escapement. From the watch dial, the 9300 movement uses a unique chronograph minute and chronograph hour hand coaxial design. There are only two small dials on the dial.

    9300 coaxial chronograph movement used on the dark side of Omega Speedmaster.
       The 9300 coaxial chronograph movement uses the 4th generation coaxial escapement, which is one generation ahead of the 8500. The octopus-shaped escape wheel and escapement on the 9300 movement are also adopted by Omega’s new Co-Axial movement, and the technology is fully mature. The combination of a vertical clutch and a cylindrical wheel is standard on the new generation automatic chronograph movement. The cylindrical wheel exposed in the window of the movement’s plywood also shows us more technical characteristics of this movement. The 9300 movement increased the wobble frequency from 25,200 times / hour to the 8,500 movement to 28,800 times / hour to meet the timing needs. The 9300 movement is driven by dual springs and has a power reserve of 60 hours. It can be seen that the movement is designed with torque stability as the premise. When the dark side of Super Speed ​​Moon is turned on / off, the movement’s swing basically remains unchanged. The use of silicon hairsprings and non-clamping fine adjustment balances has increased the movement accuracy and magnetic resistance of the 9300 movement. It is worth noting that in this year, Omega has applied the Coaxial technology to the 9300 caliber Speedmaster, which means that the Speedmaster has also had 15,000 Gaussian antimagnetic capabilities since then, becoming the chronometer with the strongest magnetic resistance in the watch industry. .

    Ceramic Circle Daytona

       I must admit that Daytona’s evolution does not have such a large amount of technical stacking as the dark side of Super Moon, but it has nothing to do with Daytona, and this does not prevent Daytona from continuing to claim in the altar. king. In 2000, a new generation of Daytona using Rolex’s own 4130 self-winding chronograph movement was launched. Today, 16 years later, Rolex Daytona has equipped the stainless steel Daytona with a ceramic bezel. The ceramic ring Daytona (number 116500) that watch fans around the world have been waiting for for years has finally arrived in 2016.

       Watches are definitely different from anything else in the world. Its magic is that although it is a mechanical technology product, it cannot be measured simply by its technical content and technical indicators. This is why the dark side of the Omega Speedmaster created by the most advanced watchmaking technology from the inside to the outside can not occupy the advantage in front of the ceramic circle Daytona. It seems that the dark side of Super Moon is just a full ceramic case, which can overturn Daytona (Daytona only has a ceramic bezel, and the rest are all stainless steel). But this is not the case. The fact is that Rolex Daytona used only one ceramic bezel to explode watch fans around the world. Not only was the new ceramic ring Daytona popular, but even the old steel ring Daytona that was about to be discontinued. Little orgasm (because many people are very interested in the final steel ring Gangdi). Rolex is different from other watch factories in that Rolex is a very restrained watch factory and will not blindly follow the trend, whether it is aesthetic or technical trends. Rolex mainstream styles will never undergo large-scale subversive changes, and will only gradually improve from the details, so the modern and historical models of Rolex mainstream styles have basically no major changes. It is also this way that every change of Rolex will become a blockbuster in the watch industry.

       Before the introduction of the ceramic ring steel case Daytona, using the 4130 movement, the steel case steel ring Daytona of 116520 has become the benchmark product of the automatic chronograph. The steel case of Daytona with a public price of more than 90,000 yuan can also be taken at the auction site for 60,000 to 70,000 yuan. This classic example is enough to show people’s recognition and pursuit of Daytona, and it also reflects that Tonna has strong stored value capabilities and its own qualities.

       Rolex 4130 self-winding chronograph movement, diameter 30.5 mm, thickness 6.5 mm, 44 jewel bearings, vertical clutch, cylindrical wheel, 72 hours power reserve, observatory certification. The 4130 movement is Rolex’s most successful automatic chronograph movement. Once it was introduced, it became the object of study and imitation by various watch factories. The 4130 movement integrates all the technical configuration of the new generation automatic chronograph movement, and incorporates Rolex’s unique technical configuration including blue niobium balance spring, red wheel two-way winding device, adjustable span balance plate, escapement wheel axle suspension and other shock absorption. It achieves the best combination of technicality and practicality, and has a certain movement decoration. It is one of the best comprehensive automatic chronograph movements in the watch industry.

    ‘Little Crown’ contains great power
    How is the situation

       This is a contest full of suspense. In terms of value alone, the moment of victory is difficult to distinguish. However, through past experience, we can still predict the situation between the dark side of Super Moon and the ceramic circle Daytona. I have to admit that, from a cost-effective perspective, the dark side of Chao Ba Yue has shown great strength and competitiveness. The public price of the dark side of the Speedmaster Moon is only a staggering 90,000 yuan. Don’t forget that the dark side of the Speedmaster Moon is an all-ceramic and uses the 9300 coaxial movement (the coaxial movement with the highest Omega technology content) ) Watch, a ceramic automatic chronograph of a certain brand with the same technical configuration as the dark side of Super Speed ​​Moon, the price is steadily over 100,000, which is basically around 130,000. Within 100,000, there is no such product at all. So I said in the previous article that if you do n’t add brand additional factors, the dark side of Omega Moon definitely represents the best price-performance ratio in high-end automatic chronographs. Omega is even more scary. If you think the dark side of the Speedmaster is still high, then there is a stainless steel version of the Speedmaster 57 chronograph (the ceramic case is replaced with a steel case, the same movement), and the price immediately drops to 60,000. . The price is really high. On the other hand, referring to the previous price of Daytona, even if the price of Daytona of the ceramic ring does not change much, it will need at least 90,000 yuan (in the precedent of the water ghost, the price of ceramic ring will increase). From the perspective of the technical configuration of the watch alone, although the Rolex 4130 movement and the Omega 9300 coaxial movement have taken different technical routes, they can basically be regarded as the same level (the technical content of the Omega 9300 is actually higher, and it is mainly added 15000 this year. Gaussian anti-magnetic ability thus obtained a huge advantage). The dark side of the Speedmaster is an all-ceramic case, and Daytona has only one ceramic ring. The configuration is definitely higher on the dark side of the Speedmaster, and more importantly, the price of the dark side of the Speedmaster is even more expensive Tonna took a few thousand dollars lower, and from the perspective of the cost performance of the watch alone, the conclusion is already obvious. However, the dark side of Super Moon seems to have overturned the ceramic circle of Daytona. The actual situation is not so simple.

       There is no doubt that the advent of the ceramic circle Daytona further increased the price and value of Daytona. Ceramic circle Daytona’s future auction and trading prices will be higher than the current steel circle Daytona. The steel ring ditona can take 60,000 or 70,000. Will the ceramic ring ditona not rise and fall, it is impossible. In addition, the new ceramic ring Daytona’s white plate adopts the color of the white dial and black dial. It is very charming of Paul Newman Daytona. There is no doubt that this will further increase the value of the ceramic ring Daytona and become a hot stir. Style. Back then, Rolex’s green glass was even fried for 100,000 yuan on a watch, and it was difficult to find a watch. The actual price of green glass was only more than 60,000 yuan. The potential of Daytona in the ceramic circle is immeasurable. The only weakness of the dark side of the “all-round invincibility” of the Supermaster Moon is this. Omega’s performance in auctions and the private market is different from Rolex’s. This mainly reflects people’s traditional awareness, recognition and recognition of the Omega brand. Acceptance. In other words, the technical level is important for a watch, but it does not play a decisive role. I believe that the dark side of the Omega Speedmaster Moon will bring Omega professional chronographs to a new peak and a new realm. At the new peak, Omega will also face a stronger opponent than ever. I think this is a good thing, and good luck with Omega.
