All about Rolex

Lover, Hater, Modern, Vintage, Sport, Dress, etc.. all are welcome!!

Ini adalah tempat untuk sharing tentang Rolex. Sebagai manufaktur yang sangat dikenal sepertinya agak aneh kalau tidak ada trit khusus rolex di sini. Ini adalah beberapa topik yang sering dibahas tentang rolex (hasil rangkuman baca2 di internet):

Rolex adalah penemu water resistant; mungkin bukan yg mencetuskan ide WR untuk pertama kalinya tapi rolex adalah yang pertama successfully execute it and bring it to public. Screw down crown adalah konsep sederhana dari rolex yang sampai sekarang dipakai oleh jam2 diver lainnya.

Self winding system dari rolex sampai sekarang masih dipakai oleh hampir semua jam tangan di dunia. Konsep dari otomatic rotor yang diciptakan rolex terbukti masih yg paling handal.

“The Rolex Watch Company improved Harwood's design in 1930 and used it as the basis for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, in which the centrally mounted semi-circular weight could rotate through a full 360° rather than the 300° of the 'bumper' winder. Rolex's version also increased the amount of energy stored in the mainspring, allowing it to run autonomously for up to 35 hours.
By the 1960s, automatic winding became standard in quality mechanical watches. Because the weighted rotor needed in an automatic watch takes up a lot of room in the case, increasing the thickness of the watch, some high end watch companies, such as Patek Philippe, continue to design manually wound watches, which can achieve a case thickness as low as 1.77 millimeters.”

Saat ini kita semua terbiasa dengan istilah Tool Watch, yang berarti jam tangan yg dirancang untuk pekerjaan tertentu atau hobi, ada jam diving, jam tangan pilot, dll. Explorer, Submariner, Master GMT dan Milgauss adalah beberapa tipe rolex yang merupakan pencetus tool watch.

"1. The first waterproof wristwatch "Oyster", 1923
2. The first wristwatch with an automatically changing date on the dial (Rolex Datejust ref.4467, 1945)[7]
3. The first wristwatch with an automatically changing day and date on the dial (Rolex Day-Date)
4. The first wristwatch case waterproof to 100 m (330 ft) (Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner ref.6204, 1953)
5. The first wristwatch to show two time zones at once (Rolex GMT Master ref.6542, 1954)"

Rolex juga sering dikaitkan dengan resale value yang bagus. Rolex (baru atau bekas) mempertahankan persentase resale price yang lebih tinggi daripada merek jam2 Swiss lainnya (kecuali patek). Semua jam rolex dapat dijual kembali dalam sekejap dimana saja di dunia sesuai dengan pasaran yg berlaku (more liquid). Bahkan sangat mungkin untuk memakai Rolex baru selama 5 tahun dan menjualnya dengan harga yg lebih tinggi daripada saat anda membelinya.

Hal lain tentang rolex adalah bahwa sebagian besar keuntungan yang didapat digunakan untuk tujuan yang baik. Perusahaan ini adalah warisan dari dua keluarga. Hans Wilsdorf Foundation memberikan jumlah tetap untuk sisa anggota keluarganya tetapi sebagian besar diberikan untuk amal, termasuk sebuah sekolah tinggi dan sekolah watchmaker di Geneve. Salah satu murid yg dihasilkan adalah Franck Muller emoticon-Stick Out Tongue

Sisi negatif dari rolex adalah mereka telah menjadi korban dari kesuksesan mereka sendiri. Rolex berusaha mempertahankan filosofi mereka tetapi persepsi publik yang berubah. Meskipun rolex tetap membuat jam di kategori sport/tool banyak orang berpikir tentang emas dan berlian saat mendengar nama Rolex.

Desain Rolex sering diaanggap ketinggalan jaman alias basi. Rolex belum pernah merilis model yang benar-benar baru dalam lebih dari beberapa dekade. Mungkin model terakhir dari rolex yang benar2 merupakan sebuah inovasi adalah milgauss yg dirilis tahun 56.

Rolex adalah jam yg paling dikenal dan sering diidentikan dengan jam mewah yang dipakai oleh orang2 yang tidak mengerti tentang jam tangan. Selain itu banyak sekali replikanya, sampai2 banyak orang mengurungkan niatnya untuk membeli rolex asli dan memilih untuk beli replikanya dan juga sebaliknya.

So, which one are you, a lover or a hater? Share your rolex here. emoticon-Smilie

Rolex Dictionary A-B

Beberapa istilah yang sering digunakan kalo ngomongin Rolex. Ada beberapa istilah slang yang belum tercantum, mungkin nanti rekan2 bisa nambahin dan akan diupdate. Karena banyak istilahnya, dijadiin beberapa post sesuai abjad.
Mudah2an berguna.

A

Acrylic Crystal: Also known as plastic crystals, these were initially introduced in the 1920's.
Aftermarket Rolex Parts: A non-Rolex made part that DOES NOT contain counterfeit Rolex trademarks, hallmarks, or logos.
Aperture: Some watches contain small openings on the dials, called apertures, that show indications (i.e. numbered date, hour or day of the week).
Arabic Numerals: The figures on the dial that represent the hours, such as 1,2,3,4, as opposed to Roman Numerals I, II, III, IV.
Arbor: The shaft or axle that a gear rides on. At each end is a narrower segment called the “pivot.”
Atmosphere: Used as a measure of the watertightness of a watch case. One atmosphere equals average air pressure at sea level, approximately 14.7 pounds per square inch. Since one atmosphere equals 33.90 feet of water, a 3 ATM water resistant watch is considered water resistant to approximately 100 feet.
Automatic Winding (also Self Winding): An automatic watch is wound by the movement of the wearer’s wrist. This movement causes a weight inside the watch to rotate backward and forward. The weight is connected by a gear train to the barrel arbor, which is hooked to the mainspring, thus winding it and keeping it in constant tension.
Auto Rotor: Rolex patented perpetual movement invented by Emil Borer in 1931.

B

Baguette: A ladies style watch (or movement) featuring a thin rectangular or oval shape.
Bakelite: The transparent acrylic material used on the bezel of early model GMT-Masters in 1954.
Balance: The governor or controller of a watch; it consists of a metal wheel, now commonly made of Invar, a special steel resistant to changes in dimension due to fluctuations of heat or humidity and usually is mounted with a hairspring also of Invar or a similar alloy.
Balance Spring: Also referred to as the “hair spring,” this spring controls the swing of the balance.
Balance Wheel: A portion of the escapement, which divides time into equal sections.
Bark Finish: The finish on some bracelet links that resembles the bark of a tree.
Barrel: Often called the “mainspring barrel,” this is a circular box, often connected to a gear, which holds the mainspring, which drives the watch.
Beat: Measured in either Beats Per Hour (BPH) or Beats Per Second (BPS). This is the number of times per hour or second that the balance wheel goes through a full arc of motion in either direction. The usual number of Beats Per Hour is 18,000. However, current Rolex watches are 28,800 BPH.
Bezel: The ring around the crystal on the top portion of a watch. Often, the bezel is made from varying materials (i.e. stainless steel or gold) within a watch line – See also Rotating Bezel, Bi-Directional Rotating Bezel and Uni-Directional Rotating Bezel.
Bi-Directional Rotating Bezel: A bezel which can be rotated either clockwise or counterclockwise, and is used for making calculations.
Boy’s size watch: 2mm smaller than that of a standard men’s size watch.
Brancard: Rolex Prince model with flared ends. From the French word meaning ‘stretcher.’
Breathe: This is the term for the expansion and contraction of the hairspring. When breathing correctly, the spring is working at its optimum efficiency.
Brevet: From the French word Brevette, meaning patented.
Bridge: Any movement plate secured by a minimum of two screws.
Bubbleback: Term used to describe the early Rolex Perpetual models, due to the thickness of the case used to house the over-sized Auto-Rotor movement.
