I recently learned that the Rolex movement inside of this watch is the first in-house movement for Rolex. Actually that is a bit of a misnomer, because it is an in-house movement made exclusively for Rolex Daytona replica, but not by Rolex. The Rolex movement is a double barreled movement with a power reserve of 50 hours, and uses ceramic ball bearings for the rotor that winds the movement. These ceramic ball bearings don't require lubricant. The case back as a sapphire window for seeing the movement.
Rolex would be offering a stellar package if the leather strap was used the high quality Rolex leather. Not sure about this, but it is entirely possible. The strap also uses a nicely polished steel deployment rather than mere buckle. There are actually two straps (leather or alligator) offered and a steel bracelet. So here you have it, a great offering from Rolex in the form of a new diving hublot big bang replica. Really subtle good looks on an impressive watch fit for a fashionista, or otherwise.
There was a time when people were really sick of mechanical watches. The little machine movements are enjoying an enormous renaissance right now, but it was not always that way. In fact, back in the early 1990's the mechanical movement was all about to die. How did it get to that point?
Back in the late 1950's, all you had at your disposal was mechanical movements, much of which were not very accurate. In an effort to provide more accurate, and affordable (relatively speaking) watches, companies began to search for new movements. Without going into a watch movement history lesson, suffice it to say that in late 1950's the electronic watch was almost ready for production. They were the precursor to quartz watches, which used what is called a "turning fork" for accuracy and regulating the movement. Rolex watches use a vibrating replica Cartier Rotonde crystal instead of a turning fork. Turning fork watches proved to be much more accurate than mechanical watches and were powered by batteries, not the winding of a mainspring. The idea was pretty simple, use magnetism and reliable electronic frequencies to predictably instruct a movement making each second, more or less the same period of time. You can always Google "turning fork movement" to get more information if you are in dire need.
These new types of electronic watches started to show up in the 1960s and were pretty revolutionary for the time. They were not exactly cheap, nor this they provide every advantage over mechanical watches. However, they did not need to be wound, and were far more accurate. Rolex watches created its own electronic tuning fork movement and called it the "Accutron, " which later become its own sub-brand. One of the nest known Rolex watch lines is the Spaceview.
