    The ‘technical Content’ Of Rolex Women’s Watches Is Higher Than That Of Men’s Watches?

    It is not too late to get to the topic. Let’s not talk about the market today. I want to tell my brothers a purely “technical issue” and explain the “strange” phenomenon in a Rolex watch. Some of the technologies in Rolex women’s watches are more advanced than men’s watches?

    The Rolex 28mm Women’s Diary Women’s Watch is the first to use Rolex’s latest silicon hairspring technology.
    The technical configuration of Rolex men’s and women’s watches is different.

       As we all know, the current movement of Rolex watches is as follows:
       Rolex men’s watches currently use 3135 series movements and new 3235 series movements (for various branch models, I use 3135/3235 for all).
       Rolex small size women’s watch (some models), currently using the 2236 movement.

    Rolex Caliber 3135

    Rolex’s new 3235 movement

    2236 movement used by Rolex women’s watches.

       Rolex uses the Parachrom hairspring in the men’s watch 3135/3235, which is what we usually call the ‘blue niobium’ hairspring; Rolex uses the new Syloxi silicon hairspring in the small-size women’s watch 2236 Started). Rolex men’s and women’s watches are different. Women’s watches are new silicon hairsprings.
       At that time, in 2014, Rolex used new silicon hairsprings on small-sized women’s watches, but men’s watches have always used Rolex’s signature blue niobium hairsprings. I wonder, what does Rolex mean? Blue niobium hairspring is very good, why do you want to produce silicon hairspring? The result is a silicon hairspring, why only use it on female watches? Who is the blue niobium spring for men’s watches and the silicon spring for women’s watches? In recent years, I have seen more and more things, and I can almost answer these questions.
    First of all, the Rolex Blue Niobium Gossamer is really good.
       At present, the hairspring of general watches uses Nivarox alloy hairspring. In Chinese, it is Nivarox alloy. A large number of watches on the market use this alloy hairspring. This Nivarox alloy hairspring is actually okay, its antimagnetic ability and anti-temperature change ability are ok, and it can be dealt with in general living environment. But it is just okay, because Nivarox alloy hairspring has a loophole, that is, this alloy still contains a small amount of iron. Iron is susceptible to magnetism, so Nivarox alloy hairspring cannot resist too strong magnetic field. So this is why, some brother’s watches are magnetized when they are worn, and they are not allowed to leave.

    Rolex’s iconic Parachrom blue niobium balance spring.

       In order to solve this problem, Rolex developed the exclusive Parachrom blue niobium balance spring in 2000, which is characterized by anti-magnetic and anti-vibration. Rolex blue niobium hairspring is made of niobium zirconium alloy (because it is blue, it is commonly called blue niobium hairspring). Let’s put it plainly, there is no iron in Rolex blue niobium balance springs. Because there is no iron, blue niobium hairsprings are not afraid of magnetic fields. Even if it is not a special anti-magnetic lightning pin, the general Rolex has a strong anti-magnetic ability. Omega 15000 Gauss uses silicon hairsprings, so Rolex blue niobium hairsprings, like Omega silicon hairsprings, are antimagnetic.
    Since the Rolex blue niobium hairspring is so bullish, why do they still produce silicon hairsprings?
       In recent years, because silicon springs have the advantage of anti-magnetic, so many watches have changed silicon springs, even Tissot, Mido silicon springs. The performance of the Rolex blue niobium hairspring is very good, and the result is a silicon hairspring. Not only I wonder about this, but players around the world are wondering, it is simply an ‘unsolved mystery’. Until, some players in Rolex’s official statement on the new Syloxi silicon hairspring obtained key information, explaining the role of Rolex silicon hairspring.

    Rolex’s new Syloxi silicon hairspring, please pay attention to the small holes on both sides of the hairspring. The two small holes are used to fix the hairspring.

       The Rolex blue niobium balance spring has good performance, anti-magnetic and anti-vibration, but there is a small problem, that is, ‘the curve is not flat enough and not symmetrical enough’. Because, like blue niobium hairsprings, Nivarox hairsprings, these alloy hairsprings need to fix one end of the hairspring to a ‘clip’ (outer post of the hairspring, which can be easily seen from the figure). Therefore, the hairspring’s curve cannot be ‘fully symmetrical and completely flat.’ If he is asymmetric, it may affect the accuracy of travel time (the professional point is that it will affect isochronism).

    It can be easily seen from the comparison that only one side of the Rolex blue niobium hairspring is fixed on the ‘clip’, and the Syloxi silicon hairspring is fixed at the same time through both sides of the small hole, so the Syloxi silicon hairspring is completely symmetrical and flat.

       The silicon hairspring is made by ‘one-piece molding’ by chemical method, and the curve is particularly flat and symmetrical. On both sides of the Rolex silicon hairspring, there is a symmetrical ‘small hole’. These two ‘holes’ are used to fix the silicon hairspring, and the left and right sides are fixed. It is fixed on the Rolex movement’s iconic cross balance plate. It is symmetrical (the blue niobium hairspring has only one side fixed and cannot be symmetrical). This design of Syloxi silicon hairspring is a patent of Rolex. Silicon springs of other brands of watches do not have this technology. Therefore, Rolex’s new Syloxi silicon hairspring is flatter than blue niobium hairspring and more symmetrical than blue niobium hairspring, which is good for ensuring the accuracy of watch movement (professional point is to reduce the influence of gravity on the hairspring).
       In addition, the brothers take a closer look and can see that the curves of Rolex Syloxi silicon springs are different in thickness and spacing from the inside to the outside. These are all researched and calculated. Conventional alloy hairsprings, including Rolex’s own blue niobium hairsprings, are unattainable.
    Rolex silicon hairspring is so powerful, why only use it on women’s watches?
       There is nothing perfect in this world. One problem with silicon hairsprings is that they cannot be repaired or adjusted. If there is a problem, they can only be replaced. Silicon gossamer is plain, just like 3D printing, integrated into one, and it is the finished product. Unlike alloy hairsprings, they can be adjusted and repaired.

    At present Rolex’s new Syloxi silicon hairspring is mainly used on 28mm women’s diary ladies watches.

       The reality now is that Rolex’s new Syloxi silicon hairspring performs better than Rolex’s blue niobium hairspring. The Rolex 2236 movement for women’s watches, because the movement is small, the smaller the movement is not easy to get accurate, so the new Syloxi silicon hairspring is used on the small size women’s watch 2236 movement, which enhances the anti-magnetic of Rolex women’s watches , Shock resistance and accuracy.

    Including Rolex DD, Rolex men’s watches use blue niobium hairsprings.

       A large part of the Rolex men’s watches are professional watches, sports watches, Daytona, Water Ghost, Explore Two, Lightning Needle, Yacht or something. Sports watch is to be durable. In terms of resistance to manufacturing, the blue niobium balance spring is an alloy balance spring, which is easy to maintain. For these watches, the 3135/3235 series movements have large movements and thick movements, which have advantages over small women’s movements. Easy high. Therefore, Rolex men’s watches are currently using blue niobium hairspring.
       Of course, Rolex’s use of the new Syloxi silicon hairspring on small-scale women’s watches is also a test of Syloxi silicon hairspring. Many people speculate that once Rolex believes that the Syloxi hairspring has passed the test of time, it will be used in men’s watches.
    Which Rolex watches use the new Syloxi silicon spring?

    Rolex’s 28mm women’s log type has been equipped with the new Syloxi silicon balance spring (calibre 2236).

       Brothers, please note that not all Rolex watches use the new Syloxi silicon spring (2236 movement). Rolex now uses the new Syloxi silicon balance spring (calibre 2236). There are mainly two watches. One is the Rolex women’s log type. Note that it is a 28 mm women’s log type. One is a 37 mm small yacht. No other watches, brothers and sisters, please pay attention to the distinction.

    The Rolex 37mm yacht also uses the new Syloxi silicon spring (calibre 2236).

       2236 is a women’s watch movement, which is very reasonable for 28mm women’s diary. However, the 37 mm yacht uses 2236 movement, I think this is very interesting. In general, 37 mm is the size of a men’s watch, but the 37’s yacht uses a 2236 movement only used by Rolex women’s watches, does this suggest that Rolex defines the 37’s yacht as a ‘women’s watch’?
