We often say that Rolex has the classic 3135 movement (there will be more details later), in fact, OMEGA also has a classic 8500 movement. These two movements, of course, are not only brand’s self-made movement, but also the brand’s star movement and classic movement. It may even be said that the born of OMEGA 8500 coaxial movement marks the return of OMEGA to the family of Swiss watch manufacturers that has its own design and production of unique movement. Of course, some friends say its revolutionary impact on the field of movement is not inferior to other famous sports. However, compared with Rolex’s 3135 movement, there is a little important difference that OMEGA’s 8500 movement is still very young which means it must continue to accept the baptism of time and test. In 2007, OMEGA launched its own 8500 movement system with a coaxial escapement. This also can be called OMEGA’s regression to brand origin. Because OMEGA’s name comes from the name of the movement that it developed and produced in 1890. It should have been a brand with more emphasis on movement.
Among the many Rolex movements, the 3135 movement is the classic of the classics. It is also one of the main movement of swiss replica rolex watches. It has been applied to almost all of Rolex’s classic watches, the famous “submariner”, “Datejust” and “Deepsea”.
The 3135 movement is currently the main men’s movement which has the largest number of production and long time span. It is also the second movement that has 28,800 vibration frequency after 2035. Although it is improved from 3035, the design and process are more mature, and it is also recognized as a generation of “movement king”.
The basic technical data of 3135 movement are as follows: movement diameter 28.5 mm, thickness 6 mm, pendulum frequency 28,800 times per hour, 31 gems, power reserve of 50 hours, instant-jump calendar, Glucydur alloy balance wheel, 4 weights, Breguet hairspring, KIF Shock absorber
In addition, it is worth mentioning that, in the movement of the automatic winding system, Rolex movement is equipped with some unique red wheel, of which adopts TEFLON printing crafts. They are excellent in corrosion protection, wear resistance and friction reduction.
