Given the buzz and angelic choral singing surrounding the new ceramic-bezel Rolex Daytona, we’ll give you a pass if you didn’t notice that Rolex quietly updated the Rolex Explorer. A subtle update, this refreshed Rolex Explorer series replica watches UK features a set of fully lumed numerals and a re-sized handset, marking a course correction for one of Rolex’s most recognizable and enticing entry-level models. The Rolex Explorer has long stood as the entry point for Rolex’s most sporting group of watches, and it’s easy-wearing charm and versatile design belies its history as one of the brand’s most prolific adventure companions. This newly refreshed iteration is a practical and useful nod to the Rolex Explorer’s roots as a sport watch and adds some much-needed refinement to the modern design.
While the reference number remains unchanged as 214270, a closer look will suggest a considerable refresh against the current generation that was announced in 2010. The 2016 Rolex Explorer retains the 39mm sizing and, being a Rolex sport model, the case uses their 904L steel. The movement also remains unchanged, with the Rolex Explorer running Rolex’s 3132 Superlative Chronometer automatic movement, with 48 hours of power reserve, a Parachrom blue hairspring and Paraflex shock absorption.
With a minimal and function-driven aesthetic like that of the Rolex Explorer, it doesn’t take much to unbalance the design. The previous version (the 214270 up to Baselworld 2016) wore beautifully, but in the move from 36mm (reference 14270) to 39mm, some of the magic was lost. We saw the unfortunate shortening of the minute hand which was a bit too short to fill the dial or reach the minute track. With the new 214270, the Rolex Explorer returns to the proportions and design of the 14270.
Those brightly polished arabic numerals are out, replaced by lume-filled versions similar to those seen in previous generations. While this is a small change, considering both the sporting and flexible intention of a watch like the Rolex Explorer, lume is important and should be an integral element in the Rolex Explorer’s design. Additionally, consider the Rolex Explorer’s roots. Today’s Rolex Explorer design is based on the 1016 Rolex new Explorer series copy watches which was launched in 1963 with painted numerals to offer as much glow as possible, a goal mirrored in this 2016 version.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King was gone – did you notice that? We are sure many of you did, at the least, when we covered its replacement, the 2015 Oyster Perpetual at BaselWorld last year… But worry not, if you missed its brief absence, as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is back for Baselworld 2016, and in a few interesting ways. While it may not have the sex appeal or luxury Rolex cache as pieces like the new Rolex Daytona or Rolex Datejust 41, it’s actually been more of a surprise for a few of us, as it is not exactly something we would have expected to see from Rolex.
To begin with, Rolex traditionally changes and updates only when they feel it’s truly necessary – and the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is no exception to that commendable rule. One complaint that was arguably more frequently levied against the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King was that the 34mm wide case version it was offered in were just “not large enough” for contemporary trends. Well, instead of just releasing an “upsized” model, Rolex fake watches UK dropped the old model, and two years later released a fresh new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King that addressed that issue and brings one of the more entry level models in the Rolex line-up back with a much welcomed 40mm-wide case.
Citing the watch’s return to its aviation roots, Rolex wants this new larger dial to be read loud and clear. The first impression we got from the new 2016 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King cheap replica watch was that it has gotten so much bolder in its design that the previous version looked scaled down and extremely conservative. This new model fits a lot more between the Rolex Explorer I and the Rolex Milgauss.
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is re-debuted with just one version with a black dial. While at 40mm-wide, its case design is virtually the same as the Rolex Milgauss, its dial sports basically the same polished 3-6-9 indices as the Rolex Explorer I before Rolex updated it for this year. It is an interesting mixture, that is for sure.
There is no doubt that the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is a venerable institution of modern luxury Rolex watches, even though the collection has been around since the 1960s. Since its birth, the Rolex Daytona watch has seen a range of versions and evolutions, but for the most part, it has been considered one of the most important chronograph sport watches of all time. This year at Baselworld 2016, Rolex once again introduced a few new versions of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona including this handsome-looking reference 116508-0013 (116508 YG) 18k yellow gold version on a matching bracelet and with a handsome, deep green metallic dial. This is a new addition to the 116508 Daytona collection (yellow gold models), and I want to add that, ironically, the green dial color looks better in person than the slightly too-bright images Rolex has on their own website.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona cheap fake watch is a unique success story of wrist watch families for having so much popularity, even amongst a large range of versions, movements, and styles that were produced over the years. “Daytona” is a highly profitable name in Rolex watches when it comes to both new and vintage models. A market dud when it was originally released, the so-called “Paul Newman” Daytona collection earns top dollar by demanding collectors at prices almost utterly out of whack for what most enthusiasts would consider to be the sum of its parts and prestige.
In the 1990s, steel Rolex Daytona replica watches UK were all the rage – which Rolex reportedly produced in “insufficient” quantities given market demand. The result was both a waiting list as well as mark-ups for new steel Rolex Daytona models. Rolex managed to do it again this year in 2016, during a time when timepiece collectors lining up to purchase new watches at retail prices are arguably at an all-time low.
At Baselworld 2016 Rolex introduced a new version of its nautical watch, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master, for the first time in a combination of 904L steel and Everose gold, with a warm-toned chocolate dial Rolex replica watches UK.
Sporty but sleek, the new Yacht-Master 40 is strongly characterised by its bidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel in Everose gold with polished raised numerals and graduations which stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted background. This bezel is not just decorative and can be used, as an example, to calculate the sailing time between two buoys.
The use of gold and steel on the same watch has been a signature feature of Rolex since 1933, when the brand registered the Rolesor name for this combination of metals.
On the Yacht-Master, Everose gold is used for the bezel as well as for the centre bracelet links while the winding crown, the middle case and the outer bracelet links are made of 904L steel.
With its middle case crafted from a solid block of steel and the fluted case back hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement, the Rolex replica Yacht-Master 40 waterproof watches to a depth of 100 metres / 330 feet.
The winding crown is fitted with the Triplock triple waterproofness system and protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case.
The chocolate dial with sunray finish is enhanced by pink gold applied hour markers and hands which are treated with Chromalight for long-lasting luminescence in poor light conditions. The sapphire crystal features a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date.
The Yacht-Master 40 is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement beating at 28,800 vph and offering 48 hours of power reserve. It features the patented blue Parachrom hairspring which is insensitive to magnetic fields. According to Rolex fake watches UK , this kind of hairspring hairspring offers great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
