Click here: Rolex Sea Dweller wrist fit: we compare the 2017 Rolex Sea Dweller 126600 50th Anniversary to the 2008-2017 Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller. Tim Mosso offers full measurements for these oversized Rolex dive watches; is your wrist built for the Sea Dweller 43, the Deepsea, or should you just stick with a Rolex Submariner? Tim busts the myth of fragile manual wind luxury watches with instructive examples for watch buyers considering their first manually wound watch; we consider the delicacy – or toughness – of the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196P. Yellow and rose gold watches: who’s up for the look? Tim responds to use questions about rose gold and yellow gold watches that Tim would wear. He names the Audemars Piguet Tourbillon Automatique 25463, the Zenith Academy Georges Favre-Jacot, the Vacheron Constantin Saltarello 43031, and the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso minute repeater 270.2.73. A user asks about water resistance testing for Breitling dive watches, and we consider water resistance tests as they are performed on “incompressible cases.” The concept of the watch collector’s “grail watch” receives ample discussion following a watch buyer’s question about how to define this enduring term. Is there a definition for what comprises a “grail watch,” or is the definition fluid. Can you select a new grail watch if you obtain your Patek Philippe tourbillon, for example? Moreover, should a “grail watch” be something totally unobtainable or a luxury watch at the outer limit of what is possible? We discuss tantalum watch options for a viewer who finds the dealer waitlist and aftermarket price premium for an FP Journe Chronometre Bleu to be unacceptable. Our discussion considers the Hublot Big Bang Tantalum, the mid-size Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 14790TR, the Royal Oak Offshore Orchard Road limited edition, the Gerald Genta Arena Bi Retro, the Wyler Chronograph Dakar Ralley in tantalum, the Panerai Luminor Marina PAM 172 and the Panerai Luminor Choronograph PAM 192. Finally, Tim answers a watch collector’s question regarding the tourbillon status – or lack thereof – of the Ulysse Nardin Freak. As a carousel is a mobile escapement like a traditional tourbillon, but in the case of the carousel, a separate powertrain provides drive to each of the escapement and the carriage on which it rotates. Out audience will offer its commentary alongside Tim’s thoughts during this interactive wristwatch web show. Remember to like, comment, and subscribe for more great content from WatchBox Studios.
