INSIDE the Rolex Submariner

just wanted to share these Rolex3135 movement pictures. That's what you'll find inside your Rolex submariner.

indestructible
reliable
built like a tank
a watch which will survive you without problem.

Ofcourse the level of finishing is far from a Patek Philippe but I guess that's not what Rolex wants to be.





















































and that was the patient :-)

<<< Ofcourse the level of finishing is far from a Patek Philippe but I guess that's not what Rolex wants to be. >>>



Assuming this statement is correct, does the far higher level of finishing on a PP make it run more accurately, make it more durable, increase the life of the movement parts, decrease the need for periodic servicing, etc? I am curious if any or all are true, or if it simply adds substantially to the cost of a PP due to more time involved with hand finishing.

Great pics, but I've often wondered why Rolex don't use the Philips 4-head screws instead of the straight-slotted ones..............wouldn't be easier and quicker for the watchmaker to work on?

Isn't it interesting how different people have such different tastes. I have a sapphire back on my gold Omega 2500B movement, but have never wanted one on any of my Rolexes, as I don't think Rolex puts any real effort into making the movements look interesting. That really doesn't matter to me when I think of Rolex, because I'm not looking for JLC style finishing of the motor, but rather looking for years of accurate, bulletproof service, in a pretty average looking but tough movement.

After all, my wife married me. If it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me!

JJ, as an engineer it's harder, so more expensive, to make screws that small with a Phillips head as opposed to the slotted type.
So I guess that's why Rolex uses the slotted screws.

you need more depth on a philips head. slotted are low profile
