It is a nice day, and I just heard a big news, that is the first Rolex tourbillon watch published in our market. Yes, it surprises me and this is unimaginable, however it happens. We know Rolex is a world-famous brand and it is also one of the best-selling watches, but Rolex never made a tourbillon watch before, and today I still can not believe there will be a Rolex tourbillon watch. While I can say that this watch is not produced by Rolex, it is designed by Label Noir and just used the Rolex name.
Label Noir makes some custom-made watches, while this replica is made by JB factory. I introduced this factory in other posts, it is a factory that specilizes in manufacturing tourbillon watches. Now back to this watch, like Label Noir, JB makes it based on a Milgauss 116400, the movement is a real Sea-Gull tourbillon, the factory added 94 new components on the base of this tourbillon movement, it is a new breakthrough in technology.
Like Milgauss 116400, this Rolex tourbillon watch also uses an Oyster case, stainless steel case and bracelet look so common, the dial is sanded and in grey dial, so besides the white ROLEX printings, the first you will notice on the watch is its tourbillon device at 6 o’clock. The central second hand also inherits the lightning-bolt second hand of Milgauss.
After the Roger Dubuis Double Tourbillon and Richard Mille Tourbillon, this is another great tourbillon timepiece from JB factory, which is born for high-end tourbillon watches.
Chronograph, tourbillon and minute repeater are three complicated functions in modern watch industry, a watch that features one of these three functions is more expensive than others, especially tourbillon and minute repeater. Today, you can see a lot of replica watches with chronograph feature, but few replicas use genuine tourbillon movement and no replica watches have minute repeater feature. That’s because these two functions are hard for the factory to replicate, current replica watch making technology can not achieve this. However, many website selling replica watches offer faux tourbillon watches and cheated their customers at a sky high price, that’s the reason why tourbillon watches do not sell well in replica watch industry. Today, I will introduce you guys a replica watch using genuine tourbillon movement, it is from IWC Portuguese.
The replica uses a genuine Sea-gull tourbillon movement, people with some watch knowledge should know a little about Sea-gull Watch Factory, it is a famous factory manufacturing Sea-gull brand watches that have been well know at home and abroad. Sea-gull makes their own tourbillon movement, so this replica uses a genuine tourbillon movement from Sea-gull factory. You can observe the tourbillon work from the big window at 9 on the dial, it is the tourbillon position that features a rose gold round edge. From the crystal cas eback, you can also see the movement has more complicated structure, it has 41 jewels, so that its stability has been brought to a new high level.
The factory built every detail of the replica to be perfect. 18K rose gold case perfectly matches genuine brown leather strap, which echoes with the rose gold hour markers and hands. 316L stainless steel case is plated with 18K rose gold and then polished, the round bezel and lugs are polished well, no burrs existed on any edges and feel smooth, so they create a great wearing comfort. On silver grey dial, through careful abservation, there are delicate sun-ray patterns. All hour markers are Arabic numbers with corresponding bar-shaped studs, both are in rose gold tone. Finally I would like to share the specifications below:
