In 1931, Rolex created and patented a self-winding pendulum device called “Permanently Moving”. The technical principles of this invention are more widely used throughout the watchmaking industry. The f-style fake watches and the later renamed OysterPerpetual have since been found on the surface of all watch collections (except for finely decorated or gem-set watches), indicating that the watch is waterproof and equipped with automatic winding movement.
Rolex uses 904L stainless steel to forge stainless steel replica watches. 904L stainless steel is widely used in high technology, aviation and chemical industry, so it must have high corrosion resistance. This superalloy is not only extremely durable and easy to polish but even in the most extreme environments, its beauty remains undiminished. As a result, Rolex has created a perfect watch with 904L stainless steel and precious metals.
Replica watch Rolex’s history is inextricably linked to its visionary and pioneering founder Hans Wilsdorf. At the beginning of the 20th century, when the pocket watch was still quite popular, the young man had already joined the Swiss watchmaking industry and conceived wearing a watch.
Although the accuracy of the watch at the time was not sufficient, Hans Wilsdorf was able to predict that the watch not only showed an elegant style but also was accurate and reliable. In order to convince the public that his innovative timepieces are equally accurate, he specially equipped the watch with a compact, precise movement made by a watch company based in Biel, Switzerland.
The watch incorporates more innovative technologies, such as a movement with an automatic winding and constant motion. These innovative inventions have combined to create the legendary character of the Oyster watch, which has created the outstanding reputation of Rolex, and many innovative inventions have set a new standard for the watch industry.
The enamel case is water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) and its unique mid-surface case is cast from a single piece of 904L stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance.
The triangular bottom cover is screwed tightly by the special tools of the Rolex watchmaker to completely seal the case. The winding crown features a patented double-lock waterproof system that securely tightens on the case. The enamel case gives the precision Rolex movement the most precise protection against water, dust, pressure, and impact.
