To be honest almost a friendly sort of reminder of what you are wearing Rolex watches

The first thing I noticed when i received this watch is how small it is in comparison to most watches in my collection. The Rolex is only 30mm wide without the crown, although it is about as thick as most other Rolex watches (mainly due to the tall crystal). 30mm is a woman's size Rolex watch by today's standards. A few of the images are of the Rolex in comparison to two other replica Rolex Submariner.
One, is a manually wound 38mm wide Rolex watch, and the other is of a 45mm wide Rolex. You can see the drastic size differences, especially when worn on the wrist. Funny enough, the small size of this particular does not bother me much, even though I tend to stay away from small watches. It is one of the most legible watches I know own, and for what its worth, size doesn't matter with this Rolex watch. So while I still feel as though the watch is petite, I am not too bothered by its minuscule stature (see how I have to keep justifying that to myself).
Despite the small size of the Rolex watch, you always seem to know it is there on your wrist. Quartz watch owners will never know about this, neither will most modern mechanical watch owners; but older mechanical Best Replica Omega Seamaster Watches On Sale ticked in an audible manner. Basically, the escapement releasing energy from the balance wheel creates a rapid ticking noise. On modern watches you really need to place your ear right up to a Rolex watch to hear it. However, before watch cases got thick, you could hear the faint ticking pretty well, even when your wrist is some distance from your head. To be honest, the noise is not at all unpleasant, and I am the type of personal easily annoyed by erratic noises. It is almost a friendly sort of reminder of what you are wearing. That there is a little operating machine on your wrist. It might not be something I want to hear everyday, but it is a charming novelty that i have come to sincerely appreciate.
Two main things keep this watch looking clear and legible for its size. And these two things are continually overlooked by other watch makers, which is a shame. The first is a very thin bezel size. The larger the dial of a replica Breitling is in comparison to the bezel, the larger the watch will appear to your eyes. Next, the Rolex watch hands are the right length. This is of the few Rolex watches that i own that has hands long enough!
Seriously. The minute hand of any Rolex watch should extend almost all the way to the edge of the dial. The hour hand should stop right at where the hour markers stop. Not near, but exactly there. If you notice, there is a marked red perimeter at the edge of the dial, that the minute hand follows exactly. This actual 'touching' makes a closer mental association with the analog time in my opinion, and dramatically aids with legibility.
