Rolex launched the new Greenwich II watch at Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Expo this year, equipped with a new 3285 movement and a redesigned watch appearance. The first new watch is an Oystersteel model with an Oyster case and a commemorative strap. Its two-way rotating outer ring is equipped with a red and blue two-color Cerachrom ceramic 24-hour scale. The other two new Greenwich IIs are cast for the first time in 18ct eternal rose gold with brown and black Cerachrom ceramic word rings.
This three-timer gold eternity rose gold model has a 40 mm oyster case, and the bezel and bracelet are made of eternal rose gold.
The crown of eternal rose gold, the Greenwich II watch is water-resistant to 100 meters, but the three points of the crown actually mean that it can also provide a water-resistant depth of 300 meters. Rolex has developed a spring bezel rotation system, which makes the bezel smooth and reliable and can rotate in both directions, and it will make a crisp click sound in every position every 24 hours.
Gold bracelet, polished and smooth.
In addition to the traditional hour, minute and second hands that show the time of the wearer’s location, the Greenwich II also features arrow-shaped 24-hour hands, a two-way rotating bezel, and a 24-hour graduated Cerachrom ceramic dial. When the outer circle is at the 12 o’clock position indicated by the triangle mark, the 24-hour hand indicates the time of departure (such as home time), and the hour can be read from the opposite outer scale.
The new 3285 movement has obtained 10 patents in total, fully reflecting Rolex’s innovative technology and cutting-edge watchmaking technology. In terms of precision, reliability, power reserve, shock resistance, anti-magnetic and ease of use, the 3285 movement is from On the basis of further improvement, perfection. This movement is equipped with Rolex’s new patented Chronergy escapement. The new escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus, which is not only efficient and reliable, but also immune to magnetic interference. The balance spring assembly is the heart of the watch and is equipped with a blue Parachrom hairspring. This hairspring is made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. It is not affected by magnetic fields and its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of traditional hairsprings. The last Rolex ring ensures that the hairspring can still operate regularly at any position. The 3285 movement is equipped with a self-winding component. The movement is wound by a perpetual oscillating weight. The new structure of the barrel and the excellent efficiency of the escapement increase the power reserve of the 3285 movement to about 70 hours.
As with all Rolex watches, each Greenwich II is certified as a premium chronometer. This unique title proves that the watch has successfully passed a series of tests by Rolex Labs, and its standard exceeds the standard and standard of watchmaking industry. The watch is tested only after it has been assembled to ensure that the watch performs optimally when worn.
