Rolex’s new generation of constant oyster movement 124300, the most popular three colors.

The situation of the new colored disk oyster constant movement, “one watch is difficult to find,” and “super -public price” are all market economies. I understand this. At the same time, as a famous watch enthusiast who does not pursue popular swiss models, I am Expressing calmness.

Rolex is a master of color plates, gem plates, and special disks. There are countless Rolex in history. The new generation of the oyster-style gauge is not the first time Rolex was launched. Therefore, when the colorful oyster’s constant movement is justified, I want to tell you how to say to you how did Rolex’s bright disk come from.

Rolex’s new generation of constant oyster movement has the charm of colorful candy plates in Rolex history.

Rolex’s most famous colorful disk was born in the 1970s.

Rolex’s colorful disk was first prepared for Rolex’s flagship “Day Date” (Rolex week calendar, referred to as DD). From the 1970s to the 1980s, Rolex launched the famous Stella color DAY DATE, with the models 1803 and 18038. At the same time, in addition to the color DD, there are a few Datejust, which also use this color disk.

Some players may ask what Stella means. In the product catalog of the 1970s, Rolex made this colorful paint, writing Lacquered Stella, so this bright disk DD was called “Stella disk” abroad and was used as the abbreviation of these color disk DDs. Due to rich colors and brightness, the domestic color DD called the “candy disk,” can be understood.

The color disk DD in Rolex history is very rich in color.

The colorful paint surface of Rolex is mixed manually and sprayed in layers and scattered layer by layer. Because the texture of the paint surface is very similar to the enamel, many people call it “enamel paint” or “low-temperature enamel.” It has nothing to do with enamel. The Rolex color disk is the paint surface. The Rolex antique color disk DD is very rich in color, including green, light green, blue, Tiffany blue, gradient blue, orange-red, brown-red, pink, and yellow, and can be said to be five light and ten colors. You can see that the color oyster-style constant dynamics now has not only the antique DD but is also more prosperous than the current color.

However, the colored plate was “failed” at the time.

In history, the DD of colorful disks is mainly put in the Asian and the Middle East market. But at the time, it didn’t get angry, but it wasn’t good. This is because the DD week calendar is the flagship of Rolex, which has always been full of gold. It is the highest price, Rolex. Those who buy Rolex DD must have a certain amount of financial resources, so they are often older people. These people are not interested in the colorful color DDs of flowers but buy traditional white, black, and silver disks.

Due to the poor sales of the color disk DD, some of the initially planned color disks were replaced by traditional color disks. Some colorful disks are not sold out, and Rolex has destroyed some bright ones. This is why Rolex antique color disk DD has a relatively rare number.

In addition to the small number of production, and the color dials from the 1970s and 1980s, the market has been prone to cracks such as cracks. Especially the color plate inlaid diamond style, under the drilling of the target diamond, it is prone to cracks, which makes the antique color disk DD, which is intact, even scarce. Due to scarcity, the value of antique color disk DD is very high (auction price).

Note that this green plate DD has cracks on the plate surface.

In 2013, Rolex once again launched the “color disk.”

In fact, from the previous generation of Oyster Heights 114300, Rolex has begun to promote the color disk on the oyster’s constant movement.

The new generation of color oyster-style constant moves launched by Rolex.

Before this, the Rolex color disk was mainly on Day-Date, but because DD was a gold watch replica, the price was very high, so the market was relatively small. Now put the colorful disk on Rolex’s entry-level oyster-constant type movement, which enriches the style of oyster-style constant movement. Due to the low public price of oysters, the color disk is very fashionable. Young people can reach it, and this wave is hot at once, which is reasonable.
