Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day Calendar Ⅱ
问 Introduced in 1956, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date Watch (DAY-DATE) is the world’s first watch capable of displaying the entire week spelling. The day of the week display is centered at 12 o’clock, illustrating its importance, with 26 languages to choose from, covering most countries and regions around the world. Its calm, heavy appearance is still dated, and it also provides a template for future DAY-DATE watches.
The concept of the following day watch can be said as broad as possible. In the huge watch family, the watches that do not have the qualifications of Rip are rather few. Choosing a watch is not only a technical task, but also an individual one. Especially for non-watch enthusiasts who wear it for the purpose, they often have to spend a lot of time just asking for opinions, and they missed the opportunity to buy a new watch in the New Year to torment themselves.
As a daily watch, a calendar display is required. Tables with calendar functions abound, and are divided into multiple varieties such as single calendar, double calendar, full calendar, annual calendar and perpetual calendar. The most common of these is the single calendar, which has the advantage of being clear and easy to read. And rich in style, no matter the high, middle and low-end brands have corresponding main products.
Dual calendar refers to the day of the week calendar, dual calendar refers to DAY, DATE & mdash; & mdash; DAY corresponds to the day of the week, and DATE corresponds to the date. Compared with the single calendar, the double calendar only adds one function, but the positioning has changed radically. Because basically benefiting from this new feature are the middle and senior executives in various companies, and the meaning of controlling time is more obvious, so the dual calendar is also recognized as the most business day wear watch.
The leap year calendar only needs to be manually adjusted once a year, which is very worry-free for daily wear. Unfortunately, the options available are relatively limited. Since the launch of this ‘quasi-perpetual calendar’ product by Patek Philippe in 1996, only a few watch factories such as Bulgari, Audemars Piguet, Omega, Breitling and others have followed up. As for the pure annual calendar (only showing the month and date), it is not a second person except Omega.
The full calendar and the almanac are easy to be confused in appearance, especially the models with moon phases. Among them, Patek Philippe’s almanac and Blancpain’s full calendar moon phases. Their dials are rich in content, including the day of the week, calendar, month, moon phase, and minute hand, and the layout is orderly. Not only enthusiasts of watches and clocks, even laymen will be moved by it. Although there is still a gap between the price and complexity and the perpetual calendar, Patek Philippe’s annual calendar and Blancpain’s full-calendar moon phase watch have steadily entered the collection level and are the first choice of such high-end daily wear watches.
The perpetual calendar is naturally the top of the calendar family, whether it is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 8-day long-powered perpetual calendar, Athens’ GMT perpetual calendar, Blancpain’s ultra-thin perpetual calendar and exaggerated Piaget Emperador Cusion perpetual calendar, or H.Moser’s & ldquo; The flashing & rdquo; perpetual calendar can evoke the infinite impulse of love. And what I want to recommend is a Glashütte Senator Navigator perpetual calendar that many people will be unfamiliar with. Its week, month, calendar, leap year, and moon phases are all scattered on the edge of the dial in the form of a window, which is not the same as any other watch. I was used to the traditional perpetual calendar arrangement, and suddenly I saw a unique one that just can eliminate your aesthetic fatigue.
理由 Five reasons to choose & quot; Dual Calendar & rdquo;
Functional and pragmatic: In addition to the basic time display, the DAY-DATE watch adds and only adds the day and date function. Today, both white-collar workers and otakus are used to checking dates on mobile phones or computers, and even desk calendars have been eliminated. However, the convenience and speed of watches are still beyond the reach of other tools. The design of the DAYDATE watch is clearly focused on legibility, designed to help busy office workers save time and avoid interrupting the task at hand due to viewing the calendar.
Affordable price: Watches must be more complex and delicate, and simpler and more durable. Compared with expensive devices such as timekeeping, question and answer, tourbillon, the realization of the week and calendar functions is much easier. The related technology is very mature and very popular, so the price of this type of watch will not be too high. Fully affordable. And suitable for daily wear.
方便 Easy operation: DAY-DATE watches are basically self-winding. The day and date of DAY-DATE watches can be adjusted through the crown, without the need for other buttons or contacts. Because there is no annual calendar function, the calendar needs to be manually adjusted 5 times a year, at the end of February, April, June, September, and November. Considering that today’s mechanical watches that meet the observatory’s standards also need to be adjusted every month or two, there is no inconvenience.
The grade is enough: DAY-DATE belongs to the mid-to-high end of the mechanical watch from the product positioning. It feels more formal and more commercial than the ordinary junior or single calendar. And the DAY-DATE watches are often produced by mid- to high-end brands with a certain reputation and reputation, which can definitely be used in business and social occasions.
Various styles: Chinese people buy watches to look at the style first, and the functions are not practical. In terms of style, the range of DAY-DATE watches is still relatively wide. There are more than one combination from the material, the position of the calendar window to the overall style, which meets the wear needs of all levels from ordinary white-collar workers to workaholics to professional managers, while also taking care of fashionistas and sports fans Personality claims.
