A Rolex watch is a wise investment. It’s an incredibly well made piece of machinery that will last you a lifetime, and it will be useful to know more about Rolex if you are thinking of purchasing one.
A Bigger Trend
Rolex is most likely the most famous luxury watch manufacturer that has ever existed, with an unmatched prestige and reputation. However, when purchasing a Rolex watch, the Rolex watch case size is an important factor to consider. Take a look at all the Rolex model options that are available. Presently, you will notice that there are many mens full size Rolex replica watches ranging from 34mm to 44mm. In the past, when we would get a question about available watch sizes, there would be only one answer. Today, that is no longer the case. Over the past decade, as bigger watches became more popular, Rolex began to offer larger versions of their most iconic models. As a result, mens full size Rolex watches have found their prominent place and continue to remain in style.
Only little changes and modifications
Rolex is very conservative with regards to its design. Rolex very reluctantly changes the general appearance of their watches. Even slight changes and modifications in aesthetics and design might take years and even decades.
Also, Rolex rarely changes or modifies its movement technology, and the technology and the design of their cases, bracelets and clasps – even though several relevant changes and improvements have indeed been made over the last few years. Rolex’s philosophy can probably be summarized by this sentence: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
A few hallmarks
Recently there have been some new lines that look very different from the classic Rolex watches (such as Cellini and Sky-Dweller), but in general, Rolexes can be distinguished by a few hallmarks. These include the screw-down caseback, the crown, the bezel and the Cyclops lens. Just about all Rolex watches have solid casebacks (which sets them apart from just about everybody else). The crown is small but important component, screwed hermetically down rather like a submarine hatch. The Cyclops lens in the sapphire watchglass enlarges the date. The fluting of the bezel was originally used to screw the bezel onto the case, but with rotatable bezels it became of even greater practical importance. It is now an important visual signature.
