Know More About Tool Watches

If you are fairly active and needs something you can wear every day, then you can choose a tool watch. The tool watch is designed for a specific purpose more than telling time. As the moniker connotes, a tool watch must be durable and adjustable, which has multiple uses. Specifically, certain job functions are what separate a tool watch from a dress watch.

Despite the ubiquity of electronic timekeeping in this day and age, there was a period during WWII and later in the 1950’s that the concept of a “tool watch” was born, and Rolex certainly defined the concept. Rolex innovations and patents such as being water tight, self-winding, and readable at night underlie the concept of a tool watch. Rolex replica watches has links to many areas of specialist timekeeping, and the connection with diving that has made the greatest impact on the public at large. The Submariner was launched in 1953, and it was the first divers’ watch waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. It had a rotatable bezel so that divers could easily read their dive time. The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller was presented in 1967, waterproof to 610 metres, with helium escape valve for use during long decompression phases in hyperbaric chambers. In 1978, it was the turn of the Sea-Dweller 4000, waterproof to 1,220 metres.

Wristwatches have been a part of aviation since its inception. In fact, one of the first purpose-specific men’s wristwatches ever made was for a pilot friend of Louis Cartier back in 1904 (the iconic Santos watch). In the decades after, watchmakers built on that original design to make timekeeping easy for pilots taking off into the wild blue yonder, most notably with the addition of a chronograph. Back in the 1930s, the Swiss company Breitling made onboard chronographs for planes in the Royal Air Force so pilots could determine their speed, distance traveled, and fuel consumption. In the 1940s, they decided to put their chronograph on a wristwatch — creating the Breitling Chronomat, as well as the mold for future aviator watches.

The Rolex Daytona was engineered in 1963 as a perfect timing tool of professional race car drivers. It is built with a highly accurate and reliable chronograph and tachymeter scale which can be used by racers to precisely measure their speed of up to 400 kilometer per hour. This popular and admirable watch is truly legendary in the motor sports world. If you value luxury, speed and performance, then the Rolex Daytona is perfectly right for you.
