Introduction To Rolex ‘bubble Back’ Watches

Famous Rolex & ldquo; Bubble back & rdquo;

After the watch developed to a certain stage, it gradually separated from the style of pocket watches and bracelet watches. Because the overly complicated design is not easy to promote, and the fragile shell can not meet the needs of daily wear, especially for work and labor. In order to comply with the watch’s own laws, designers began to focus on the watch’s own design language, such as sturdy, reliable, and durable, so two types of shells, such as pillow and coffin, were created. As we can see, there isn’t much to boast about in terms of design. They are neither as decorative and aesthetic as wine barrels and rectangles, nor as square, triangle, and octagonal watches. The shell is so modern. They give priority to practicality, and then consider aesthetics. They can be regarded as the first wave of watches with an industrial atmosphere, especially the ‘coffin casket’ represented by the Rolex Oyster Watch, which once flourished. For ten years, it still looks kind.
Cushion-shaped watch appeared around the 1920s and 1930s, and it was affected to some extent by ‘ART DECO’. From Patek Philippe’s Ref. 7071R ‘Ladies First’ chronograph, we can clearly feel the beauty derived from Art Deco style. The other two iconic pincushion watches are Piaget Emperador coussin and Bucherer’s EvoTec. Their round, thick outlines are more reminiscent of a good-speaking and reasonable man. Of course, he has to be very tasteful.

The famous Rolex & ldquo; Bubble back & rdquo;

‘Coffin Tsai’ is often confused with ‘Bubble Back’, they are actually talking about two characteristics of a style. Rolex introduced it to the market around 1930, basically ending in the 1950s. Because the back of the table is arched, the English name is ‘Bubbleback’, and the literal translation is ‘Bubbleback’. Because the middle of the case bulges and extends up and down to the strap, it looks like a Chinese coffin from the side. Therefore, it is called ‘Coffin Tsai’ by the superstitious Hong Kong people. ‘The design of the coffin is more practical and sturdy. In the middle of the last century, the design of the coffin was endless. It formed a style in the altar. Even today, in the retro models launched by Zenith, Seiko and other brands, the shell shape of ‘Coffin Tsai’ can still be seen. The shape that evolved from practicality and life now looks different.
