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 P-R

P

Pedometer: The first self-winding pocket watch design, invented by Abraham-Louis Perrelet in 1770. Thus named after the source of its power (i.e. a weighted lever that jerks as a man walks).
Perpetual Movement: Another term for an automatic or self-winding movement with a winding rotor that travels a full 360 degrees.
Precision: Term used by Rolex to describe their watch movements which had not received a timing certificate, thus were not rated as chronometers.
Pivot: The turned down part of an arbor. This part commonly projects through the hole in watch jewels.
Plate: The portion of the movement which supports the bridges and other plates.

President: (also Presidential): This nickname is often used to describe the Rolex Day-Date models, since one was given to then President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956 to celebrate his re-election, and nearly every President since Franklin D. Roosevelt has worn one. However, the name ‘President’ is officially only used to describe the bracelet style featured on the Day-Date model.

Q

Quartz Movement: Quartz watches use a tiny energy cell (or battery) to replace the mainspring as the power source. The oscillating mass is replaced by a tiny piece of shaped quartz crystal, which is tuned to a frequency of 32,768 Hz (cycles per second) – this is often called the piezoelectric effect and is similar to that of a tuning fork. A system of integrated circuits then divides the frequency into one-second pulses to drive a tiny motor, which in turn drives the hands.
Quick Set: Introduced in late 1970, this feature allows the date to be rapidly set via the winding crown, without having the hour hand pass over the ‘midnight’ position – See also Double Quick Set.

R

Radium: Radioactive luminous material first used on the hands of watches around 1913. This material was subsequently replaced by Tritium around 1950.
Reference Number: The case or model number of a watch, usually engraved between the lugs, and/or inside/outside the case back.
Registers: Term used to describe the subsidiary ‘extra-function’ dials positioned on the face of a chronograph watch.
Rehaut: Recent Rolex models (2008) have a distinctive "ROLEX ROLEX ROLEX" and serial number engraved on the "inner bezel" also known as the "Rehaut" (French) or "Flange"(English).
Rolesium: A Rolex term used to describe the case metal mixture of stainless steel and platinum, trade-marked on May 21, 1932. This configuration is currently seen on the Rolex Yacht-Master.
Rollesor: A Rolex term used to describe the case metal mixture of stainless steel and gold, trademarked on April 1, 1933.
RIS: Rolex Idiot Savant
Roman-Arabic Dial: See also California Dial.
Rotating Bezel: Often used on sports watches like divers’ or aviator models, it is used to perform an additional function, such as checking decompression times, or telling the time in different time-zones – See also Bi-Directional Rotating Bezel and Uni-Directional Rotating Bezel.
Rotor: The oscillating weight used in an automatic movement.
Ruby: See Jewel.
