In the past two days, I have seen such a problem in the exchange group. Talking about the 5 most worthy Rolex cash models, many watch friends have expressed their opinions, which is interesting.
Some people say: Bai Gangdi, Coke, Green Jindi, Black Rock Sugar, Green Water Ghost
Some people say: According to the concept of “the most worthwhile”, 5 public price green ghosts
Some people say: 5 new Perpetual
The watch friend who said 5 green ghosts at a public price must be a humorous person in reality. Let alone 5, it means to get 1 at a public price. It is a beautiful fantasy in recent and future years.
The new green circle black disk 126610LV was released on September 1, with a public price of 74,600 yuan. Two days later, a watch maker announced a high-profile Moments of 200,000 mentions. As of September 12, the market had dropped, around 150,000. The price of the new water ghost in just 10 days is like a roller coaster. It’s just that once this roller coaster is launched, it won’t be able to return to the original point at least for a long time. difficult!
What is “most worthwhile”? Many people think that the most worthy = great room for appreciation. So the most worthy of being an ordinary watch friend is to get your favorite and good quality watch at a relatively reasonable price.
I personally recommend the 5 most Rolex watches, covering basic models to complex models, so start from the movement, 3230, 3235, 3285, 4130, 9001 each.
3230 movement, the simplest 32 series Three needles without calendar, dynamic storage for 70 hours
Before 2020, my favorite non-calendar Rolex was 114300, especially the white plate launched in 2018. I once defined it as the first choice for entry to Rolex, equipped with the 3132 movement (the shockproof version of 3130).
But this year’s color revolution, I’m afraid it will make me look better, the new Perpetual Pokémon version equipped with the 3230 movement is very amazing. Cool color matching is in line with the current consumer psychology that pursues diversification. Personality and youth are the first reaction to seeing New Perpetual.
Of course, the market is also full of other voices, such as “This is not a Rolex”, “It’s full of cheapness”, “Isn’t this just like Seiko”, “Like a Swatch”…the likes and dislikes are up to people, these comments There is no right or wrong.
In terms of personal aesthetics, I have been hit by this new wave of Perpetual. Men’s models are available in 36mm and 41mm versions, which can take care of the big watch friends who were previously considered as small as 39mm. In fact, 41mm is not too heavy in actual wear. , The injection of the dynamic reserve 3230 movement takes one more day, and the practicality is enhanced. The domestic public price of the two sizes is 43,400 yuan and 46,000 yuan respectively, which is still a good choice for entry-level.
However, whether the Pokémon version of Perpetual is a transitional product, or whether it has the nature of playing tickets, is hard to say, but according to usual practice, its service time should not be very long.
Calibre 3235, the most topical 32 series Single calendar with three needles, dynamic storage for 70 hours
The 3235 movement can be said to be based on the 3230 movement with a calendar module, and other qualities remain unchanged. Why is it that it is the most topical, or it is because of the water ghost. Since 2017, it was applied to the 50th anniversary of the Red Sea Envoy and Yacht Masters. Every year, everyone will guess, when will the water ghost update the movement? At the same time, comparisons and evaluations with the predecessor, the famous 3135, continue one after another. There are constant disputes over which one is better and which is worse.
Earlier I predicted that the Green Water Ghost will be new this year (on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the 116610LV launch). At that time, I only guessed to replace the 3235 movement. I didn’t expect Rolex to play a bigger wave. The new 126610LV directly dreamed back to the beginning of 2003. , The movement is replaced, and the disk surface is adjusted to a green circle and a black disk.
In terms of appearance, 126610LV has increased from 40mm of the previous generation to 41mm. Although the size has been enlarged, the lugs have become thinner and the crown shoulder has become thinner, so the overall wear will not be bloated than 116610LV. Of course, there are also reasons for “black and thin” .
Other details, such as the small crown in the middle of the “SWISS MADE” under the disk surface, are used to distinguish the new and old models; the distance between the two ears has been adjusted from 19mm to 21mm due to the thinning of the lugs, which means that the new and old models have different straps. generic.
3285 movement, the hands indicate two places Single calendar, 70 hours of dynamic storage
The 3285 movement is based on the 3235 movement by adding a needle to indicate the second time zone time. The four needles are coaxial and are used in the GMT II series. We set the time indicator back to March 2018. The location is Basel. Who was the spicy chicken at the exhibition? I am afraid that the non-126710BLRO is none other than the five-ball steel chain cola ring.
Since its launch in 1955, the 6542 of the Rolex classic GMT-Master has been deeply loved by labor fans. And this pursuit reached a climax when the platinum 116719BLRO (Coke ring) with the red and blue ceramic ring came out in 2014.
Then in 2018, the 126710BLRO equipped with the 3285 movement made Lao fascinated. It was still a two-color ceramic ring technology that was difficult to fire (the red color itself had no stable mineral pigments and was difficult to form a Cerachrom component), and it was still 40mm in size.
However, the classic Oyster chain is replaced by the same classic five-bead chain, which improves the wearing comfort to a higher level; the material of the bracelet is also changed from platinum to steel. The compression of costs has rekindled hope for the previously daunting GMT fans, even though it is today. The price remains at the level of around 120,000.
Calibre 4130, a classic chronograph Dynamic storage for 72 hours
Calculating the time, as of today, the 4130 movement has been in service for 20 years. Looking at the modern and modern Rolex movement that has been in service for a longer time than it, it is the 3135. The hero will eventually withdraw from the stage, but the classic will continue, no matter what the future, 4130 is worth remembering by all fans.
Mentioning 4130 is talking about Daytona, which is as topical as the Green Water Ghost. It is said that Daytona was a failed case at first: When someone bought a Rolex in the late 1970s and asked for a discount, the salesperson answered like this: I’m sorry, sir, Rolex does not sell at a discount, but if you want to buy a Daytona If you do, you can get a 20% discount.
Under the Daytona series, dozens of products are included, including gold and steel, tape and metal tape, and many disk options. Among them, the most discussed is Baigangdi 116500LN.
116500LN was launched in 2016. It is the first steel version of Daytona with a ceramic bezel, 40mm diameter design, screw-in chronograph button, familiar crown triple lock, and 100 meters water resistance.
Four years have passed, and the popularity of this chronograph has not diminished. It has been at a high premium for a long time, with a public price of 102,400 yuan and a secondary market of 170,000+! Regarding the purchase of watches, either tie-in sales, order to be added to the list, and then there is a long wait.
In recent years, Daytona has continued to release new models, and I also predicted that there will be no new Daytona this year, which will come true. Let’s guess again, when the Daytona is updated next time, it may be when the 4230 or other chronograph movements are launched.
9001 movement, when the master disc shows two places Annual calendar function, dynamic storage for 72 hours
The 9001 movement often gives me an illusion: it is not as complicated as a Rolex. If you want to divide the party in the watchmaking world, Rolex is undoubtedly a conservative, simple and practical, is the brand’s self-restraint when pursuing quality.
However, the appearance of Skywalker (now known as the long-timer) makes people’s eyes bright. If you take a closer look at Skywalker, you can find that this is the process of Rolex from simple to innovative, and then from innovation to simple.
The first is simple and innovative. In terms of function, Skywalker contains two complex functions: annual calendar and dual time, and the display is quite interesting: the dial indicates the second time zone time through its own rotation, instead of the traditional pointer rotation indication; in the annual calendar The month display of is hidden behind the 12 hour markers, and the opening behind which hour marker changes color indicates the corresponding month.
Then innovation returns to simplicity and complex functions, but instead of opening more crowns like other brands, it allows the bezel to participate in the adjustment of time. Rotating the independent Ring Command bezel to three different positions allows Skywalker to be in three setting modes: local time, second time zone time and calendar, and then simple two-way adjustments can be achieved through the crown. Unlike conventional decorative dog tooth rings, Skywalker takes the simple and practical concept to the extreme.
This year, Rolex launched the tape Skywalker, but I am not too cold about the tape, and the full gold price is high. The gold version will be the first choice among many skywalkers, with a public price of 137,600 yuan.
In summary, if you want to buy 5 Rolexes, I would choose: Blue Disc 41mm New Perpetual Motion, New Green Water Ghost, Five Pearl Steel Chain Coke Ring, Bai Gangdi, Jianjin Skywalker, leisure, diving, travel, and formal wear. Deal with.
