A late spring encounter: the new Rolex InterGold Tan One (124273)

After a few heavy snowfalls at the start of spring in the capital, the temperature has quickly warmed up. With the spring in full swing comes the urge for friends to make plans for spring. Coincidentally, I was discussing travel plans with my friends. I received a message from my counter sister: a new Makuhimo Tanichi has arrived, would you like to consider it?

I then passed the message on to my best friend, who immediately said that he was thinking of travelling in the spring and wanted a new watch with the same theme, so I decided to take it. However, considering that my friend was still in home isolation, I went to the counter to pick up the watch on his behalf.

Before I left, I had a quick look at the official website to learn more about the Tangyi.

It turns out that the Tan One has undergone an update in April 2021. The diameter of the watch was reduced from 39mm to 36mm, making it more suitable for wrists of up to 16cm in circumference.

On actual hands, I found that.

  1. the 36mm diameter is not as small as expected, and it fits perfectly with a wrist circumference of 16cm.
  2. the interval gold is not as “rustic” as expected, and the overall colour scheme is quite harmonious.
    3, black dial, or more complementary to the dial elements, and does not lead to visual monotony.

After all, it was a special occasion, so the process of lifting the watch was quick, 15 minutes.

After returning, I had to play with it carefully and take a set of pictures].

A set of details.
The black dial, with the K gold bezel, is still very harmonious.

The gold bracelet and clasp are really good value initially, but as you wear it over time, the hairline will soon be all over the K-gold part. Cherish this brand new moment.

Perhaps the design of the movement of the Tangyi does not take into account the rotating bit of the handle, so it is not vertically aligned.

The Rolex Skywalker

On Saturday, after dropping off the kids at school, I had two hours of free time, and the Queen wanted to go to the mall to buy some food and then rest in the car, so I casually found a coffee shop to sit in, and after I got my coffee, the Queen insisted on leaving, saying that shopping costs money, so I headed for the lift. This is not, the door is the Rao’s boutique, thinking that there is nothing anyway, or go in to see , may be the problem of the epidemic, the counter table

There were still several watches on the counter, two gold GMTs, three logs, and a voyager.

I had picked one of the Logicians and the King of Ghosts a year ago, and I was still thinking about it. I couldn’t afford a full gold model, so I took a step back and bought an inter-gold model.

The Zongtong is an elegant watch designed for globetrotters that displays the time in two time zones simultaneously and is equipped with an annual calendar. 24-hour off-axis dials indicate the time at the place of departure and a central hand indicates the time at the location. The annual calendar device, called the Saros system, automatically distinguishes between 30- and 31-day months. This innovative device, operated by a patented system, displays the annual calendar in a revolutionary way: the month is indicated by 12 month windows around the dial and the current month is marked in red. The instantaneous calendar changes with the local time.
