Andrew Babanin wrote a great essay on the Rolex caliber 3135 at TimeZone. He starts his review with the following short, simple but yet so caracteristic introduction,

” Rolex is a manufacture with old traditions and one hundred years of history. Rolex is always considered a luxury watch, giving assurance to its owner.

I would like to review a quite common model Rolex Submariner (Ref. 16610). The case and the bracelet are made of stainless steel. It is a COSC certified automatic chronometer with central seconds and date indicator. There’s a special Triplock screwed down crown with increased water protection. “

And what follows is everything beyond short and simple.. a superb review on the caliber 3135 movement in understandable text with some fabulous explanatory photos. I wonder if this review will become as well-known as the one done by Walt Odets.

I guess I’ll be wearing my 3135 watch (Sea-Dweller) tomorrow!
