At Baselworld 2018, Rolex introduced a new meteorite dial option for the 18-carat white gold version of the Day-Date 40 (reference number 228239). Rolex currently sells Cosmograph Daytona chronographs with meteorite dials, but the natural material is uncommon in today’s Rolex watch collections. Given the beauty of its organic and metallic crystals, meteorite has been considered a dial material for decades, adding value to its origins in space.
Rolex has combined this meteorite dial with the French disk-cut diamond hour markers to create a stylish and elegant watch. Adding decorative elements such as diamonds can make it more difficult to maintain the masculinity of a watch, but the delicacy of the diamond hour markers works. Of course, the dial window is 12 o’clock every week and the date is 3 o’clock. In fact, when the replica rolex watches was first introduced in 1956, it was the first watch to have a dial capable of displaying both the date and the day.
The Day-Date 40 is only available in yellow or white gold, and some consider it to be luxury high configuration watch most durable and classic design. Yes, some watch aficionados may consider the most iconic design to be the Submarine, but the accolade is “because mainstream audiences tend to recognize the Day Date and the Date more easily.
A few years ago, Rolex updated the Day-Date II model to the Day-Date 40, a significant upgrade as it was the first Rolex watch to be equipped with the company’s new 32XX series internal movement. The Day-Date 40 is equipped with the Rolex 3255 self-winding movement, internally certified as a “Premier Chronometer”. The meteorite dial of the Day-Date 40 is the first luxury rolex watch to display the miniature Alex crown between the “Swiss Made” positions at 6 o’clock. This visual indicator indicates that your watch is using this modern movement.
The self-winding caliber 3255 operates at a frequency of 4 Hz and has a power reserve of 70 hours and hour, date and date indications. This movement also guarantees an accuracy of +/- 2 seconds per day. In my own experience, the 3255 and other 32XX series movements certainly perform very well, with high precision and reliability. The 18 carat white gold Rolex Oyster case is water resistant to 100 meters and is fitted with a screw-down crown and sapphire crystal. Of course, the date “Cyclops lens” helps to improve readability.
The meteorite dial proves to be very beautiful and very eye-catching for the replica Rolex Day-Date 40 watches theme. Rolex uses only the highest quality materials, especially in the high-end series, so you get natural materials that are clear and practical. One of the charms of this watch is the accumulation of rare materials in the product, which is a combination of 18 carat white gold, diamonds and meteorites. All of these are considered valuable materials. The actual market shortage of these materials is still debated, but one of the purposes of integrating them is to increase the intrinsic value of the watch.
The Day-Date 40 has a reference number of 40mm wide (not particularly thick). 228239 wears well. One of the reasons the watch is smaller than its actual size is that the width of the strap appears to reduce the size of the case. This is in line with sophisticated imitation watch desire to emphasize the presidential strap. The round, 3-bracelet bracelet is very comfortable and has a “hidden” deployment clasp on the wrist, which maintains a consistent look from start to finish.
Platinum is a very luxurious material, but it seems that steel is not the only one. The extra weight of platinum means different wear and tear than steel, but unless you’re a watch enthusiast and know that the Day-Date 40 is made entirely of gold and platinum, the watch is often mistaken for stainless steel. Is. This particular president of Rolex has further enhanced its personality and character by setting the impressive meteorite dial with diamonds to find the line between luxury and sophistication.
