HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR ROLEX


Once you’ve purchased a Rolex replica watches, or any mechanical timepiece, have you thought about what the next steps are? Are there simple things that you can be doing to ensure the watch functions at its optimum level? We asked our in-house Rolex by The Watch Gallery watchmaker Jamie Hardes, who is based at the One Hyde Park boutique in London, to talk us through his key tips to looking after your Rolex…

STEP 1: BRACELET FIT

Before you even leave the store, ensure your bracelet is fitted correctly. An automatic movement needs the motion of the wrist to work. If it’s hanging off the wrist, it won’t work properly.

STEP 2: CROWN SCREWED

After setting the time or changing the date, make sure the crown is screwed down securely. If it isn’t it can let in dust or water and potentially damage the movement.

STEP 3: SWIMMING OR WATER

If you’re swimming in the sea or pool on holiday, just remember to give your watch a quick rinse in cold water afterwards. Salt water or chlorine can be corrosive to a watch long term. Also, don’t forget to keep the crown screwed down tightly to keep it waterproof.

STEP 4: WATCH SURFACE

When laying down your replica watches after taking it off, remember to lay it down crown first. This ensures that the least amount of watch is touching the surface at any time. It also prevents the polished case from being scratched.

STEP 5: SERVICING

Rolex replica watches recommends you have your watch professionally serviced every 3-5 years, to ensure it continues to work effectively. During a servicing, the watchmaker will lubricate the movement and change the seels to ensure the timepiece stays waterproof.

The Swiss replica watches manufacturer Audemars Piguet is going against the current trend in the industry with the creation of a timepiece made entirely from yellow gold. It will be unveiled at the SIHH (International Fine Watchmaking Exhibition) in Geneva, Switzerland, from January 18 to January 22, 2016.

What if yellow gold were to make a comeback in the replica watches industry next year? While it never really disappeared, platinum, carbon, rubber, ceramic, steel and titanium have stolen the spotlight from it for several years. Audemars Piguet is getting back to basics by reviving the traditional precious metal used in the watch industry and launching its Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch.

First launched in 1972, Audemars Piguet’s iconic Royal Oak replica watch was made available in stainless steel that was worked and polished like a precious metal—a revolution in the watchmaking industry. Audemars Piguet is moving in a new direction for 2016 with the launch of a brand new model made of yellow gold.

This timepiece, which has an 18 carat yellow gold case, features a blue dial with a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern of three dimensional squares. It displays the perpetual calendar subdials with month, hour, minute, and date indicators at three o’clock, the day at nine o’clock, the month and leap year at midday, and the moon phase at six o’clock. The weeks of the year are marked on the rotating internal bezel.

On the dial, the applied hour markers and Royal Oak hands are in yellow gold, with a luminescent coating for better readability in the dark. The bracelet is also in 18 carat yellow gold with an Audemars Piguet folding clasp.

The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is powered by new self-winding calibre 5134, which is visible through the sapphire back, with a minimum power reserve of 40 hours.
