Talking about the two brands of Omega and Rolex may resonate with many people. After all, as a watch brand that is quite mature in the Chinese market and its popularity is unshakable, there are many overlaps between them. This is why it is possible to be dizzy with these two brands in a certain price range, I do not know which one to choose.
First of all, I want to say a little bit of digression to everyone. When you type ‘Omega and Rolex’ on Du Niang, a series of contrasting stickers will rush, and it can be said that they all have their own opinions. From this we can also feel that the bloody war between these two brands has long gone. However, the battle of PK is so loud. This is definitely due to those who are ignited by the side. It is because of their various views and opinions that the competition between the two brands has changed from high to high. Friends talk after dinner.
Just because there are differences, there is something to watch. Some brands are afraid that they are better than others. Of course, it is not easy to find an opponent that is almost the right one like Omega and Rolex. In addition, the two brands can continue to flourish on the road of competition also stems from their dedicated watchmaking efforts. In a nutshell, it means ‘magic one foot high and one foot high’, and competition is the best driving force.
Isn’t there too much pavement, today editors will use the most direct, and some even feel rude and violent to comment on the record of Omega and Rolex in the 2014 Basel Watch Fair.
Hippocampus AQUA TERRA 150m VS Oyster Perpetual Milgauss
From the first round, there is a strong smell of gunpowder. Regarding the two brands’ new launches of the AQUA TERRA 150 meters and Oyster Perpetual Milgauss watches this year, I do n’t compare them. I’m sorry they are both predecessors. Simple, their predecessors have also been compared.
Let me talk about Rolex’s new Oyster Perpetual Milgauss watch this year. Compared with the old version of Milgauss launched in 2007, the most intuitive difference should be the color of the disc. Many people said that it makes people who are accustomed to seeing green glass a little bit confused Feeling, the overall surface of the plate has turned blue, and of course there is another purple style this year. Think about it. In fact, a friend described the current Rolex as saying very standard, that is, becoming more and more bold, more and more unstoppable!
In terms of hardware, Milgauss’ 40-mm Oyster case is water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet), making it a sturdy and reliable example. From the case to the crown to the bracelet, the brand’s essence is strictly inherited. The movement is 3131, which has undergone years of experience. The blue Parachrom hairspring made of a unique niobium-zirconium alloy is immune to magnetic interference. Magnetic force can interfere with the normal operation of mechanical watches, but this watch can withstand a magnetic strength of up to 1,000 gauss, allowing it to maintain the performance and accuracy of official timepieces. ‘Mille’ in French For a thousand, so the watch also got its name.
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m watch is the latest masterpiece launched by the brand at the Baselworld 2014. As the Appearance Association, my first concern is still how much attention this watch has. In terms of color, it is also very bold, and the choice of emerald green has also broken the dullness of some dark disks.
In fact, no matter how the Aqua Terra series changes after years of baptism, we can discern its appearance, and this new watch is no exception. The black dial of the hippocampus’s iconic ‘Teak Concept’ vertical texture is also an inheritance of the essence of the series. Compared to Rolex’s cutting-edge and bold, Omega’s Aqua Terra 150 meters watch is a little timid, but this will not prevent people who love it from feeling deeply attached to it.
The 41.5 mm stainless steel case has a bezel and a stainless steel bracelet. This certified astronomical watch is equipped with the Omega 8500 coaxial movement, which is not only a guarantee of precision timing, but it also represents a supreme glory.
Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 4000 VS Haima 300 Watch
This round is an underwater PK. Personally, I can’t just judge who is the top grade just by looking at the extreme waterproof depth. The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 4000 Sea-Dweller watch that we met in 2014 has undergone some improvements.
The Sea-Dweller was launched in 1967 and was water-resistant to 610 meters (2,000 feet), and later increased to 1,220 meters (4,000 feet) in 1978. It was designed for deep-sea pioneers such as subsea workers and hydrosphere explorers. From this point, the birth of the sea-dweller was later than the birth of the Omega seahorse diving, but with its superb skills it still won countless praises.
The new Cerachrom ceramic word circle, persistent luminous Chromalight luminous material, paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, oyster safety buckle and Rolex Glidelock strap extension device, all equipped with the most advanced brand hardware facilities. In addition, the new watch inherits the helium exhaust valve patented by Rolex in 1967, making it worthy of the name of a deep-sea diving watch. This is also a respect for traditional watchmaking.
The Sea-Dweller 4000 Oyster case is water-resistant to 1,220 meters (4,000 feet). The movement is still equipped with Rolex’s self-developed 3135 movement. The structure of this movement is the same as all oyster watch movements. Blue Parachrom hairspring made of a unique niobium-zirconium alloy that is immune to magnetic interference.
From the perspective of the overall configuration, the Sea-Dweller 4000 should be very competitive in the entire diving watch market.
After talking about Rolex, let’s talk about Omega’s Haima 300 watch launched at the Basel 2014 this year. The originator of the Haima 300 watch should be 1957, which is exactly ten years earlier than Rolex’s sea ambassador. . OMEGA has introduced a pioneering watch specially designed for divers and underwater operators, the Haima 300. It is also standard on many dive watches.
At the 2014 Basel Watch Show, the return of the Haima 300 is certainly a witness to its past glory. So how many new articles has Omega made in this watch? The 41mm case of the Hippocampus 300 is available in a variety of metal materials, including stainless steel, 950 platinum, grade 5 titanium, and 18K Sedna ™ gold. Among them, 18K Sedna ™ gold is Omega’s unique and innovative material, which debuted at Baselworld 2013. The sandblasted black dial is decorated with 18K Sedna ™ gold arched hands and white transfer logo.
The polished black ceramic ring on the bezel of the Sedna ™ gold watch is based on Omega’s unique Ceragold ™ innovative process. For the first time, Omega Ceragold’s innovative process achieves the perfect fusion of ceramic and 18K gold. Of course, in addition to the surface effort, Omega’s well-known coaxial movement has also been comprehensively upgraded.
Omega has introduced two masterpieces from the newly upgraded coaxial movement family in the Haima 300 watch. Omega 8400/8401 ‘Master Co-Axial Calibre’ not only has the accuracy and reliability comparable to any previous coaxial movement, but also uses Omega’s revolutionary anti-magnetic technology. The Hippocampus 300 watch-even any watch equipped with a ‘Cosmopolitan’ movement-brings extraordinary performance to withstand over 15’000 Gauss (1.5 Tesla) strong magnetic field interference. This officially certified chronometer is water-resistant to 300 meters (1000 feet / 30 atmospheres).
Personally, I think the best replica watch is to add elements that change from generation to generation in a conservative heritage. This round has more exciting places in my heart. Of course, I always like and like this kind of thing. The benevolent sees the benign and the wise, and everyone has his own answer in his heart.
Oyster Perpetual Greenwich II VS Seahorse Aqua Terra 150
Some people may ask if the editor has a long head. Why do you want to put these two watches together? Here I can only say that everyone has complicated the problem. What functions, the movement, these two watches? A common feature is the exclusive watch of ‘expensive’ locals. As for which one can become the new favorite of locals, let me slowly analyze it for everyone.
The first is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Greenwich II, which has also become a watch with red and blue circles. Think about it. In 2013, when Rolex’s ceramic blue and black circles appeared, it was a stone that stirred up thousands of waves. Many watch fans were secretly determined to start one. Of course, a considerable number of watch friends achieved their wish. The prices around are still affordable.
Of course, some cousins, after hearing the news that a red and blue circle will appear this year, are more like ten thousand horses in the heart, and once again secretly resolved to buy a red and blue circle this year, but never expected Rolex’s red and blue circle this year is out, but people have a unique solid 18 ct white gold case. In an instant, how many people’s dreams are broken, I can only say one thing: we do n’t understand the world of the tyrants. !!
From the blue and black circle steel watch to the current red and blue circle white gold watch, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Greenwich II has far exceeded our expectations. How many people can only list it as a dream watch .
In addition to being expensive, it seems that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Greenwich II did not give us too much surprise, or that the platinum watch was enough to cover everything else. At this moment, I suddenly remembered which song of Zhang Wei in the evening in the spring, five words floating in the sky, this is nothing! !!
Compared with this year’s Omega Perpetual Greenwich II, the Omega single product is not the hippocampus Aqua Terra 150 watch, the overall color is brilliant, even the surface is gold. It’s a bit higher than the golden labor test.
As for the sales prospects of these two watches, I am still not optimistic. After all, the current slump in the watch market is a well-known thing. It is difficult to sell watches with more than 300,000 yuan, even Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre This is true of all brands. Therefore, I am afraid that only a few people will buy such a tyrant’s watch. Of course, the brand will also consider this in advance. After all, this will definitely not be their main style.
I said a few watches today, there is no absolute good or bad, but different results from different perspectives. With the development of the brand, Omega and Rolex are gradually opening up the competition category. After all, the best way for them is to deftly avoid strong opponents, which is much less risky than facing the enemy directly. I believe that in the future, the two major brands will still be compared countless times, which seems to have become a thing that watch fans will never tire of.
