No one will be unfamiliar with Rolex, though not people who are very obsessed with watches. replica Rolex watches is already the world’s most acclaimed watch brand, the reason for such a high popularity also naturally has its own reasons. Today, I’d like to introduce you to the Day Date II Series 218238 Gold Disk Men’s Watch.
The 218238-83218 is an uncompromising gold watch, with a case and bracelet made of 18k yellow gold. The bezel has the same function and appearance as the triangle pattern on the case back. The bezel has improved over time to the point where it is only fitted to the crystal and case by friction, and the technique is now just a reflection of Rolex’s obsession with aesthetics. The standard formal large three-hand configuration looks noble and elegant. The 41mm gold dial with 10 diamond-set hour markers and the Rolex logo below at 12 o’clock is a beautiful piece that will conquer any occasion that requires a formal dress code.
The Rolex Day Date 218238-83218 with large 3-hands is the perfect choice when a smartly tailored outfit is already in place. Whether you’re washing your car or swimming, washing your face or getting wet, diving or snorkeling, the 100M water resistance will support you. After all, this is a Rolex, the premier brand in the dive watch industry, known for its toughness and long-lasting precision, and the slightest corrosion is no problem for Rolex. The crown and case are both screw-down and water-resistant. 3 o’clock date window displays the date of the month, a design inspired by the water droplet, also dubbed the “blister” by Rolex fans as one of the classic Rolex details. The day of the week window at 12 o’clock is particularly important. The double calendar is the Day-Date, which is also the most business-friendly day watch.
The 218238-83218 is powered by the Rolex Caliber 3156, a self-winding movement developed by Rolex itself, certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute and launched in 2008. This movement, like all Oyster movements, is accurate and reliable, and will provide approximately 48 hours of power on a full winding. The balance is fitted with a blue Parachromatic hairspring, which is exclusive to Rolex and patented by the company. Rolex’s Paraflex shock absorbers are also mounted on this movement, which increases the shock absorption by 50%. The Cal.3156 is one of the few Rolex movements to have both a Parachrom hairspring and a Paraflex shock-absorbing device, and is equipped with two specially treated Paraflex hairsprings. The “Big Red Wheel” is extremely resistant to wear and tear and can even compete with the Billerton (Woodpecker) winding system.
The 218238-83218 features the classic Rolex rate-style look, a symbol of excellent water resistance. Rolex also makes its own gold, and the molding, machining, and polishing are doubly carefully cared for to make the gold shine. There is no complicated chronograph function on this watch, just a simple double calendar display. The calendar seems to be less important nowadays as both white-collar and geeks are used to checking the date on their phones and computers, but as a devoted watch enthusiast, it is absolutely irreplaceable, as it conveys thoughts and ideas that can never be matched by electronics. Moreover, a shiny gold Rolex DD can give you enough air to be the center of attention, and it looks more business-like and formal than a regular large three-hand, so it’s an ideal watch for both business occasions and formal dinners.
