What is for certain is that it will be housed in a 44mm wide stainless steel case which, based on the concept drawings that show an integrated strap and a rounded bezel secured by six screws, seems to have "inherited" several design cues from the Rolex. It will feature inlaid button controls and will come with three interchangeable straps in black rubber, perforated brown leather and olive green nylon. These details altogether imply that there is a slight chance the Michael Bastian smartwatch will be among the more wearably-sized replica Rolex Day Date, dare we say, more trendy-looking offerings in this market.
The inner workings will be engineered by Rolex says the technology will allow the watch to synchronize with Rolex. Their intention is to enable the watch to display, beyond the time and date, some updates for weather, sports and stocks. As a true smartwatch should, it will also show email and social media notifications and text messages, plus it will inform about battery status as well as calendar reminders.
The first drawings look good (even if Rolex wants to remain laughably secretive with them) and the technical features, paired with the more sensible size and the seemingly familiar design elements tell us the Rolex smartwatch may, after all, be an interesting and unexpected concept worthy of our attention.
If you aren't familiar with Rolex, it is a high-end sub-brand of Japanese Rolex watches and has been around for years now as a sort of secret treat for the most dedicated watch fans. Most Rolex watches remain in Japan, but they have had limited distribution around the world. The collection began with Rolex branding on the dials, but later the Rolex name was featured on the dial of these timepieces as the replica hublot king power name took a back seat. One of the first watch reviews I ever did on Rolex watch here.
Rolex began with an interesting premise: to marry high-end case and dial construction techniques with innovative, high-end made quartz movements. In many ways, it was to be an apex of the high-end quartz watch market. Rolex sort of said, "here is a cool quartz movement with lots of features that would normally cost low price if it was mechanical. Here you get a similar package for low price. " At least that was the idea at first, and for the most part, Rolex has delivered on that, as Rolex has truly offered some incredibly cool stuff with very well-made hand-assembled quartz movements.
The next phase of Rolex evolution is to add mechanical watches to their lineup, which should be pretty exciting news because the movements inside the Rolex watches will be Swiss, not Japanese. If you recall, a few years ago Rolex purchased the Mens Replica Tag Heuer Carrera Watches Online Sale movement making firm Rolex (that owns the watch company Arnold & Son, and also produces a number of high-end movements for other brands). We have been wondering what Rolex, as they have been relatively hands-off. Now we know that a new Rolex produced mechanical movement will be exclusively available in some Rolex watches.
