The Anatomy of a Rolex

If you’re like me and find fascination in mechanical watch making then you’re sure to enjoy this video about the anatomy of a Rolex from our friends over at The Watch Gallery.

This fabulous video titled ‘The Anatomy of a Rolex’ has been made in conjunction with The Watch Gallery’s in-house watchmaker Jamie Hardes based at their Rolex Boutique.

The film depicts the disassembly of a Rolex calibre 3132 movement, featured in the Rolex Explorer ref. 214270 showing each detailed part and how it all fits together to make the functioning movement. I was lucky enough to be invited to IWC’s Watchmaking Masterclass in late 2012 and know first hand just how delicate and precise one must be when working with mechanical movements, making this video just that little bit more amazing.
