A Discussion around Rolex and the 100th Anniversary of Le Mans Daytona Release. This important and symbolic Daytona is the first of its kinda, celebrating the significance of this historic moment, marking a milestone in Rolex’s history. Not only the original backstory of how the Cosmograph was once going to be called the “Le Mans” but how it now, as the official timekeeper, can celebrate the importance of Le Mans Centenary by creating a nostalgic homologation of Classic and Modern Design.

The Paraflex – Shocking!​

Introduced in 2005, the Paraflex shock absorber is designed to neutralize all the effects of the knocks and bumps of everyday life. No bigger than a grain of rice, the Paraflex moves one way and then the other, all within a fraction of a second. On the one hand, it bends at each impact to disperse the energy, then returns to its original shape. On the other, it displaces itself to ensure the functionality of the balance wheel and escapement anchor. It is through this unique ballet of deformation and displacement that the Paraflex preserves the watch’s movement with its own.

watchmaking-features-movements-parachrom-hairspring_2301_004e_rvb.jpg


Why blue?​

This is what our Parachrom hairspring looks like. It is an essential guardian of the watch’s chronometric precision. Unveiled in 2005, entirely designed and manufactured in house, it nears the apex of what metal alloy hairsprings can offer. The scale of the image might throw you off, though.

Its edge is thinner than a single strand of hair and its weight is merely a fraction of a pearl’s. Moreover, once coiled, its diameter does not exceed a few millimeters. It is shielded from outside aggressions by a case so hermetic it was aptly named “Oyster”. Needless to say, it is a rare occurrence for any eyes to be laid on the Parachrom. So why would we be concerned by its colour? Because this hue of blue is true to our tradition of watchmaking excellence. It is the exact colour taken by our unique alloy of niobium, zirconium and oxygen when it has been anodized to stop the process of oxidation. This blue is essential to us, because it symbolizes the long-lasting performances which we hold ourselves to. This hairspring is insensitive to magnetic fields, unwavering in the face of temperature variations, and resistant to shocks as to corrosion. Therefore, each Rolex equipped with a Parachrom hairspring will tick at a most regular and perpetual beat.

Shocking!​

This is the Paraflex, our shock absorber introduced in 2005. It is an absolutely crucial element in the protection of our horological movements. One which we designed and manufactured solely ourselves. Its specific purpose is to neutralize any and all effects brought about by the knocks and bumps of everyday life.

One may wonder how such a minuscule shield, no bigger than a grain of rice, could achieve such a feat? It is through the interaction of two separate properties which, in a never-ending dance, offset the consequences of all shocks at all times. The Paraflex moves one way, then the other, all within a fraction of a second. On the one hand, it bends at each impact to disperse the energy, then returns to its original shape. On the other, it displaces itself so as to preserve the functionality of the balance wheel and escapement anchor. Thus engaging the guarantee of the chronometric performance of the calibre in all circumstances. It is through this unique ballet of deformation and displacement that the Paraflex preserves the watch’s movement with its own.

The Perpetual rotor – Always on​

The Perpetual rotor is Rolex’s automatic winding mechanism. It enables the watch to be constantly wound by the wrist’s movement. Invented in our workshops, then patented, it was introduced in 1931. In a constant state of unstable equilibrium, the half-moon oscillating weight rotates with every gesture. The energy generated is transferred to the mainspring, which is continually wound, ultimately moving the watch hands. Regularly. Precisely. For though we all seek balance, it is imbalance that drives us to move, perpetually.

Autonomy by Rolex – Movement begets movement​

A watch’s autonomy. Not just a promise, a pact that works both ways. Our quest to control the energy of the movement’s cogs guarantees our watches optimal power reserves of up to 72 hours. Since the introduction of the first Perpetual rotor in 1931, this autonomy has taken on a human dimension. Understanding every wearer has their own constantly changing energy, we have been able to capture and dispense it within our calibres. Whether yours or its own, movement will always beget movement.

Roger Federer and the Oyster Perpetual, two icons in constant evolution, continuously improving. Over the course of his more than 20-year playing career, the tennis legend has reinvented himself yet stayed true to the essence of his style of play. Likewise, the Oyster Perpetual has evolved aesthetically and technically while remaining faithful to the 1926 original Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch.

Why Does Rolex Still Make Dress Watches? + 1908 Critique (Redesign)​

Jul 22, 2023

A Discussion around the Rolex 1908 & Cellini Collection. Why does Rolex still make Dress Watches? For the opportunity to say that they can still produce their more classic pieces, to now compete with names that are far more established and to allow for customers to buy something in their stores in order to be placed on "the list". There are plenty of thoughts surrounding the 1908, but none of us really knows why it exists.
