You Haven’t Seen The Rolex

What are the common points between AP’s Royal Oak and PP’s Nautilus? Many people know that they are high-end steel-case sports watches that came out in the 1970s and are still active in the product lines of the two major brands. In addition, they all come from the same designer-Gérald Genta. Before establishing his own brand, Gérald Genta had designed many famous classics for many brands, including the Omega Constellation series, IWC’s engineer series, Bao Grace looks like the Bvlgari · Bvlgari series of ancient Roman coins. Not to mention you may not know, Gérald Genta also helped Rolex design a watch around the 1960s, but this watch is not like the several well-known series mentioned earlier, currently disappeared in the Rolex product line. But looking back, you will find that it has a completely different personality from modern Rolex watches, and even surpassed the President watch of Day-Date for that time, and became the most expensive flagship model under Rolex. This watch is called King Midas, its name comes from a myth in Greek mythology that has a magic power of stone and gold, it is not difficult to see from the watch’s naming Gérald Genta and Rolex’s expectations for this watch. On the whole, this watch is made of K gold material, just like the ability of King Midas to turn stones into gold, and the precious metal material can also echo the noble status of the king. This watch, like Royal Oak and Nautilus, is designed with a metal chain strap. Its chain strap is simpler than the previous two. There are no extra auxiliary or decorative parts between the chain links. As for the case shape, it is a bit square. Positive taste. It is a left crown watch, but in particular, the left case line has a pointed line that slowly arches towards the crown. It is said that the design of Gérald Genta is inspired by the Greek temple of Paderon. It may not be obvious when worn on the hand, but after placing the crown of the watch flat, you can see the design ingenuity of the master somewhat. After placing King Midas flat, the overall feeling is a temple, and the chain by section looks like a Doric column in the temple at this time. The surprise is still behind. Move your eyes to the top of the crown. In addition to the words ‘KING MIDAS’ engraved on the shoulder surface, the non-slip groove design around the crown has a metaphor of the sun’s outline. These seemingly simple lines and elements actually cast the designer’s meticulous thinking. Looking at the front of the dial, King Midas only has a simple two-handed pattern, with a Rolex Logo at 12 o’clock, and the handwritten Greek ‘Midas’ at 6 o’clock, and the mirror material of this watch is sapphire. Showing some noble and honorable temperament. The back of the case is still not transparent, but the 650/651 manual-winding movement exposed after the bottom cover is opened is not small. It turned out that it was Rolex 21, which was converted from the FP movement factory. This movement has been well-known Used by brands, including Blancpain, Cartier, and PP. The thickness of the movement is only 1.73mm, the vibration frequency is 3Hz, the number of gems is 18 stones, and the power reserve is 42 hours. It was quite outstanding at the time. It can be seen that this watch tried hard to interpret the shape from the inside to the inside. Realm of ‘King’. It may be that the design concept of the time was more difficult to accept in modern times, or that the price and positioning of the models were a little distance from the ordinary Rolex watches, resulting in this King Midas period was not too long. However, it was also a glorious year. In the 1960s to 1970s, some celebrities owned this Rolex watch that now looks quite special, including the rock song king-Elvis Presley, Elvis Presley once received a gift A King Midas watch, this king and king’s encounter, has added some legend to this watch. Finally, let’s take a look at the market changes of this Guru in the past ten years. The trough period is below 5,000 Euros, the peak period can reach 40,000 Euros, and the span is large, so remind friends who want to play antique watches, if you really are If you are interested in playing, then it is best; if you want to speculate, you can avoid it. Do you think this alternative Rolex is beautiful or ugly? Do not ask for powder, just talk about the public number of the watch
