this should throw away all the others perception of lack of cosc on non-date... its the same cosc standard movement found in explorer 1 ah etc... base on timezone qoute... this movement is one of the most tough wearing found in rolex line... due to the fact it lack the date function thus a more rugged movement... anyone who wan get a sub... can consider this 14060M... value for money...

go get GMT also... damn solid price now too... damn not eoungh money... if not i get both!!!!
the COSC +6 /-4 standards is quite meaning less nowadays lah...almost any watch can do that...
but COSC is a mechanical watch tradition test loh...they why today they still send for certification...
think the sub non-date don’t send is because of the cost...need $$$ mah...if send for COSC sure got to pay more $$$...

some of R models using the same movement…
3130 is a non-date version of 3135(Sea Dweller, Sub Date, Yacht Master, DateJust, Date using)
GMT2 using the same movement as explorer II...3185
think it easier for them to keep spare parts ba…even a 50+yrs old Rolex got replacement parts…



becareful...later kana the 'Kon Tao' of of Rolex....buy 1st pic...feel like buying more...
got $$$....collect the whole Pro series loh...

Snip3r: better check that yr crown is fully tighten. my wasn't lucky i find out else water get in die liaoz.. think they adjust the time for us they nv lock the crown and want to seal the deal fast. Go check

For those going to buy watch.. check that too
hey guyz, i m not sure if u felt the same for ur rolex after having it for a while, but i dont wear it that often hence i have to wind the watch every time i want to wear it to the exact time, by constantly wind the crown will it do any adverse effect to the watch?

Coz now when i wind the crown, i feel that its not as smooth as when i first got it.

PS: I just got mine 6 months ago.
