Protagonist in this issue: Rolex 116508 Lujindi mentioned Rolex’s super-public price, then there must be the name of Lujindi 116508! Leaving aside the speculation and crash this year, the price of Lujindi has been relatively stable recently. The starting price of the secondary market has been almost the same as the public price. This depends on the year, but some can be lower than the public price. This price is more suitable to start, and it is expected that the price drop will be extremely low next. The 116508 disk under the micro-shooting lens talked about Rolex. In addition to the topics of super price, value preservation, and materials, its movement durability has also been praised. Among its many movements, the 4130 has outstanding performance and can have its own stable chronograph movement, which is definitely the strength of the brand. The 4130 movement 116508 Rolex safety buckle on this 116508 is still the same sentence. The quality of a movement is never measured by its durability. The value of a watch is not its accuracy. But I also have to admit that Rolex is indeed testing this part in the years of identification and testing, which is most worrying. When I met Rolex in a bunch of watches, I was very reliable in testing. This is the truth. 116508 18ct Oyster Strap Rolex is fully stocked with material and weighs the scales. Today’s Rolex 116508 is an 18-year watch. The watch has been refurbished twice, but the movement has not moved. The purpose is to look at the 4130 movement. After using it for one year, the real state (which cannot represent all 4130 movements) weighs 197g. There are currently 10 and a half sections. The entire surface of the watch under the 116508 disk microphoto lens is very good. After all, it was Daytona, 18 years old. The face plate does not have any marks such as oxidation. I removed the model at the 12 o’clock case, and the lug connection was not stained. But this may also be due to refurbished reasons. The movement is in good condition and unmaintained. The Parachrom niobium-zircon hairspring equipped on it is still very short for Rolex watches, and it will not cause any problems. The movement was intended to be dismantled for everyone to see, but because the length is too long, I still give up and come back next time. Official Rolex parameters of 116508 can be seen in the official parameters written to us, the 4130 movement averages within ± two seconds per day. 4130’s travel time accuracy is evident. Then how about it, let’s go to the machine to see. Degauss the data before detecting it. The display of the witschi automatic demagnetizer used this time shows that the non-magnetization is not only related to the niobium-zirconium hairspring, but also to Rolex’s bottom, which is less susceptible to magnetism. Since it is not magnetized, we will begin to test the travel time line. The current time test still used the three meter calibration instruments from the previous period. The data of the three instruments is enough to explain. The next time a few more tests are used, the 600 domestic meter calibration instrument is not sensitive enough. The six-azimuth test process shows the six-azimuth data. The six-azimuth final data is still possible, except that the travel time of the upper position is slightly higher and the swing is lower. The other face values are relatively stable. Parallax is not significant. In view of the high sensitivity of this instrument, when measuring Rolex data, the polarization is high, so the polarization data is for reference only, and the polarization of a few planes is indeed not good. Witschi’s another model of the domestic meter calibration data shows that the surface data of this watch is very stable. The test data of the domestic calibration meter is relatively single and the sensitivity is slightly worse, so the lines appear extremely stable. To sum up, after using this Rolex for one year, the entire travel time is still stable, but if you look at the six directions, it can not reach the factory value of plus or minus two seconds on each side. Water test machine test data process display waterproof test Pass the waterproof coefficient to show that the selected waterproof coefficient is P5, the positive pressure is 1bar, the waterproof test has passed. After dismantling the refurbished second watch, the water resistance is no longer high. Daytona is a land-based chronograph, and the 1bar waterproof test is enough for daily use. The results of this test, I think is still expected. Even if the Rolex movement is stable, it will not maintain the accuracy of the factory when it is used. The official data is the final conclusion after a certain amount of testing, but after the actual watch is started, there will be deviations, not to mention that the environment for daily use is not a laboratory environment. This is like waterproofing. Laboratory data does not mean that the watch can actually be placed so deep in water. There are many factors in the doping. Travel time accuracy and durability are the points that many watch friends care about, and Rolex hits most people’s hearts in this regard. However, it does not mean that other brands cannot or cannot be compared, just that the positioning and choice are different. Different routes. What do you care about most when choosing a table?

[Special Report from Watch House Basel] On April 25, 2013, the annual watch industry event Basel International Watch Fair kicked off. The watch house team went to Switzerland. Bring the report of the exhibition to everyone at the front.
The Arceau watch was originally proposed by Henri d’Origny in 1978. It was a project developed in Geneva in cooperation with Agenhor, and it was also jointly developed by its founder Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. Big experts in the field of time flyback instructions.
Hermes Arceau Temps Suspendu is a retrospective proposed by Henri d’Origny in 1978. After 23 years of watchmaking development, this watch containing the ultimate essence of Hermes Hermes is finally available.
Matte light brown or black alligator leather strap, 750 rose gold or 316L case, can be equipped with herringbone printed silver-white dial, or herringbone printed black.
With hour, minute, and calendar functions, classic Arabic numeral time scale, calendar hands at 5 o’clock, 12 o’clock is the pause time zone, power reserve is 42 hours, and waterproof depth is 30 meters. Limited edition of 174 rose gold.
This watch only needs to press the button at 9 o’clock to stop the hour and minute hands at noon, thereby completely hiding the date hand. Although the displayed time is paused, the watch uses a triple flyback system ( The world’s first), which allows the internal movement to maintain normal time operation, and as long as the button at 9 o’clock is pressed again, the hour and minute hands with 360 ° callback function can return to the normal time display. It’s like a show, with only the main character performing in the foreground, while the orchestra in the background is still moving.
Two minutes, three hours, five days, or a few weeks later, at any time if you want, just press that button again to stop the pause and resume normal time. This technology involves a triple flyback system, including two 360-degree rotation functions (hour and minute hands), which is extremely impressive, and it is also the first in the world to have two exclusive patent protections. Watch.
Summary: At the 2011 Baselworld Baselworld, Hermès CEO Luc Perramond grandly launched Hermès new watch: Arceau Temps Suspendu. This unique watch simply presses the button at 9 o’clock to stop the hour and minute hands at noon, pausing the displayed time perfectly, while the time of the internal mechanism continues to maintain the standard time normally. This is also the first watch in the world with two exclusive patent protections.
The pictures and information collected by the reporting team in front of the Watch House will be uploaded to the special topics in Basel, so stay tuned.
