For reasons is still quite cool and makes for a very pleasing Rolex watches albeit simple

For reasons I won't go into, the watch model is not called the Rolex (even though it is often referred to as that) but rather Rolex is the name of the complication. This particular version on the while rubber strap isn't part of the companies http://www.waxreplicawatches.com official catalog, but is essentially a version of the Rolex collection on a different strap. So what is the complication all about?
Rolex had an interesting idea to create a travel watch that allows the wearer to change the timezones by turning only the bezel. The system, which is a few years old now, is still quite cool and makes for a very pleasing, albeit simple, travel timepiece. To adjust the Rolex, you must first fold down the latch-style section on the side of the case which unlocks the bezel, allowing it to turn.
Once the latch/lever is open, you can turn the bezel in both directions, which advances the hour hand forward when turned clockwise, or turns the hour hand backwards when turned counterclockwise. The bezel is designed to click in http://www.waxreplicawatches.com/replica-a-lange-sohne-watches-sale-for-uk.html one hour segments. Assuming you properly set the time at your current location, you use the reference cities on the bezel to know what timezone you are moving to. Alternatively, if you just know that where you are going is "five hours ahead" of where you started, you just need to turn the bezel five times.
Like I said, the system is elegant and simple, and very easy to understand and operate. The way Rolex mixes up the various models that feature the complication is by playing with the dial as well as the bezel. There are a range of themed versions of the watch, with bezels that have standard reference cities, the names of major golf courses, shopping destinations, etc... Vogard even places a small "s" next to those cities that observe daylight saving times.
After the Rolex complication watches, Rolex went further with the more complicated watches. These increase the functionality of the basic system. Those other two models both have chronograph complications, and the Rolex is able to move the date forward and backwards as well. Larger than the classic Rolex arguably have the masculine elegance of a model like the Rolex.
Rolex watches with the complication have 43mm wide cases with bezels http://www.waxreplicawatches.com/replica-alain-silberstein-watches-sale-for-uk.html that are a touch wider at 44mm. This Rolex model has a steel case which has been PVD-coated black. There are also polished and brushed steel models, as well as Rolex watches in 18k gold. What I've always really liked about Rolex watches with the Timezoner complication, such as the Rolex, is the dial design and legibility. There are various looks depending on the model family, but overall, this one showcases the best of the brand's distinctive yet conservative look. Rolex starts with well-rendered hands done in a bold sword style.
