The Rolex Caliber 3135 is, in several variations, the basis for all three-hand watches by Rolex. Since 1988, Rolex has been building the famous automatic movement, which is designed for maximum precision, but also robustness and long service intervals. The power reserve of about 48 hours is not Rolex’s best, but the mechanism can boast high resistance to interference, and all those who would like to use their Submariner properly will be glad. The 3135 can withstand impacts and temperature fluctuations exceptionally well, for which, among other factors, the blue Parachrom hairspring developed by Rolex is responsible.
