The watch uses a 38.6 mm stainless steel case with a moderate diameter. The case is polished and matte, with a black dial. On the black ‘tropical’ dial, the centerpiece is the iconic element of a Speedmaster watch, with ‘wide arrow’ hands. The hands and bar hour markers also have an orange luminous coating, adding a bright color to this watch.

The bezel of the watch is marked with a speed scale, which can read the estimated speed per hour at a distance of 1000 meters.

The 1920s flight was in the enlightenment stage. Europe and the rest of the world recognize the importance of this revolutionary change in transportation. Due to the limited functions of technology and instruments, the pilots at the time had to perform multiple duties such as maintenance technicians, navigators, photographers, and even draw maps to record flight routes. It can be said that the pilot at that time was an out-and-out explorer. With the Navigator World View, the Pilot’s Watch World Time Zone, Glashütte pays tribute to the adventurous explorers and their spirit of adventure.

The 1920s flight was in the enlightenment phase. Europe and the rest of the world recognize the importance of this revolutionary change in transportation. Flying makes the world smaller, making the impossible before possible. Inventors and pioneers continue to test and challenge the limits of technology, hoping to apply the results to exploration and commercial use. Due to the limited functions of technology and instruments, the pilots at the time had to perform multiple duties such as maintenance technicians, navigators, and photographers. You even need to draw your own map to record the flight path. It can be said that the pilot at that time was an out-and-out explorer.
Watches were one of the most important tools for pilots of the time. The primary requirement for a watch specifically designed for pilots is its size, which must be able to be worn outside a heavy flight jacket. Second, it must be highly legible, easy to read day and night. Of course, the accuracy of the travel time is also very important.
With the Navigator World View, the Pilot’s Watch World Time Zone, Glashütte pays tribute to the adventurous explorers and their spirit of adventure. The appearance of the Pilot’s World Time Zone watch is consistent with the style of other watches of the 20th century vintage series. The case has a rotatable ring marked with the world city name, which can easily define the time in different time zones. The oversized hour markers provide ideal legibility, and Glashütte’s proud calendar window is located at 6 o’clock, giving the wearer complete control of the world.
The sapphire crystal case back reveals the beauty of the 39-47 movement, the skeletonized rotor in 21K gold, the gooseneck fine-tuning device and the finely polished Glashütte 3/4 splint. A model of table craft. The Pilot’s World Time watch is ideal for adventurers with its sporty and tough design. Just look at the wrist and you have the world. Although flying has become a part of our daily lives, the excitement that adventure brings us is something we will never lose!

Rolex can change from imagination to reality because of Plans-Les-Ouates. Here is Rolex’s central laboratory, watch case maker and gold foundry. Plans-Les-Ouates, built in 2006, is composed of 6 parts that are 65 meters long, 30 meters high, and 30 meters high. It is the largest Rolex factory.
It should be noted that if you stand outside the building, you will only see half of the factory. Plans-Les-Ouates has 11 floors, 5 floors above the ground and 6 floors hidden underground. This factory underpins Rolex’s core competitive advantage. It is different from any other Swiss (German or Japanese) watch brand factory. Expanding the scope to the entire watchmaking industry, or even beyond this single industry, may be unique.
Visitors to the factory need to hand in cameras, mobile phones and all other digital equipment. There is an elevator in the factory, which leads to several floors underground. The floors are concrete and the corridors are very spacious. There are multiple doors on both sides. If a person does not need to enter a specific room, he will not get permission at all. For further in-depth visits, an authorized guide is required to check with an iris scanner.
Under the factory are two 12,000 square meters of vaults connected by 1.5 kilometers of rails, which can transport more than 2,800 parts pallets per hour, covering 60,000 storage rooms and workshops upstairs. If the upstairs workshop needs a certain part, from retrieval to delivery, the entire system takes only 6 to 8 minutes. This is Rolex’s automated inventory management system, synonymous with efficiency.
Rolex has its own foundry, which is mainly used to produce three kinds of gold and 904L composite steel with exclusive formula. why? Rolex is Rolex. Each alloy that Rolex uses is produced entirely by the brand, because Rolex knows that the alloy composition is the most important factor determining the aesthetics, mechanical properties and dimensional characteristics of the watch.
Rolex has the ability to produce these exclusive materials because Rolex dares to be the first in the industry, investing in many watchmaking brands and even dare not imagine. Plan-Les-Ouates has a central laboratory that employs world-class experts in not only materials science, but also tribology (friction, lubrication and wear) and chemistry. This is an extraordinary laboratory, incredible testing, and self-developed machinery (for example, Rolex has developed a machine that can open and close the Oyster buckle 1,000 times in just a few minutes), which is actually the most impressive The deepest is the technicians who work here, they are not 100% from the watch industry.
The Rolex Ceramics Division is also industry-leading. Although we have only seen it used for bezel production so far, the Rolex team is passionate about the future possibilities of ceramic materials.
Surprisingly, the factory also has a finishing (retouching) department. Rolex will retouch watches, professional and skilled, but not traditional aesthetic decoration, that is what consumers are always looking for when inspecting fine watchmaking, not Rolex style. The Rolex watch case is polished by hand, just like Jaeger-LeCoultre and Audemars Piguet. At any given time, 50 to 60 employees are polishing the case.
The artificial elements in Rolex’s watchmaking are far more abundant, real and important than imagined. The chamfered outer edge of the old Rolex case is very beautiful. In fact, the current retouching effect is not inferior to it. As long as Rolex thinks, they can easily bring them back to the watch fans. The assembly of the Rolex Oyster trademark and the Jubilee bracelet is also completed by hand, and of course, the guidance template used is also manufactured by Rolex.
