A Red Rolex? Top 5 Best Watches by Rolex with Red Dials

Red, Rouge, Burgundy; Call it what you wish, it’s the color of love and these are the top 5 Rolexes with red dials that we happen to love.

It’s not every day that we cover a bold looking watch such as a Rolex with a red dial but today is that lucky day where we will discuss several red-dialed Rolexes that deserve our undivided attention.

A Red Rolex? Top 5 Watches by Rolex with Red Dials

After reading this, click on any of the red luxury watches below to see details or click here to see all of them at once:

Despite the fact that the trend for watch case sizes is showing that people are buying watches with larger cases these days, the 5 featured watches are all midsize watches at 36mm and can be worn by women or even men with average to smaller wrist sizes.

Another thing that these all have in common is that they are all Replica Rolex Day-Date 36mm watches. Rolex prefers the term “burgundy” or “cherry dial” over ‘red dial’.

My best guess is that it is just a more marketable term for their target demographic.

The first one on the list that we will talk about is the Rolex reference 118139 Cherry Index Leather. This timepiece uses a 36mm case constructed of 18kt white gold and has a fluted bezel which gives it that very distinct “Rolex look”. This model has a matching red Bordeaux colored leather strap and is the only one on this list that comes with a leather watch band.

This Rolex red face watch uses a 31 jewel chronometer known as the caliber 3155 which is a self-winding/automatic caliber that runs at 28,800 VpH for about 48 hours on a full wind.

This watch red face Rolex watch uses a 31 jewel chronometer known as the caliber 3155 which is a self-winding/automatic movement that runs at 28,800 VpH for about 48 hours on a full wind.

NOTE: This in-house movement can be found in all the watches featured in this blog post.

It’s important to note that there are 5 models with red dials and all 5 are Rolex Day-Date 36mm watches. However the difference between them (aside from price and model number) is that 3 models are using an 18kt White Gold case, each with a different type of bracelet; one oyster bracelet (118239 Cherry Index Oyster), one presidents bracelet (118239 Cherry Index President), and one on a red leather strap shown above (118139 Cherry Index Leather). It’s a shame that the only materials used are white gold and platinum. No rose gold, no yellow gold, and no steel options.

It would have been nice to see a Rolex Datejust in Red on this list or in any other material such as stainless steel or even a solid 18kt yellow gold model with a red dial. I’d even settle for a stainless steel 36mm Day-Date with a red dial just to have a more affordable option for those that don’t want to dish out for gold or platinum models. Perhaps even a Rolex GMT-Master II with a red dial to match one of the models that have a split red and black bezel. If you ever see one in the future you’ll know that you heard of it here first!

The two most expensive models pictured below are not using 18kt white gold but rather platinum. The more expensive of the two platinum models has a diamond bezel (ref. 118346 Cherry Index President) while the more affordable of the two platinum models has a smooth bezel without any diamonds (ref. 118206 Cherry Index President).

Is there a model with a red dial that you don’t see here that you would have preferred to see in this list? Let us know in the comment box below.

Replica Ulysse Nardin VS Rolex watch

Once in a while we are asked questions like: “What’s better, a Ulysse Nardin or a Rolex watch?”. How can you compare two incomparable brands?

In this side-by-side comparison and review of Replica Ulysse Nardin and Replica Rolex we will try to answer the most common contexts in which this question is asked.

Ulysse Nardin VS Rolex
In-Depth Comparison
Let’s begin by listing a few of the many contexts in which “Which is best?” can easily be meant:

For your convenience, we’ll also list the general question categories. Click on any of the links below to jump to the section with questions discussing:

Which is a more valuable and more popular brand Rolex or Ulysse Nardin?
According to a report by Interbrand, Rolex has a brand value estimated at 7,387 million CHF (Swiss Francs) and is the 3rd most popular Swiss brand in the world. Nescafe and Nestle are the only two that surpass them. (Almost everyone consumes coffee and chocolate but not everyone has a Rolex.)

The above report covered the 50 most popular Swiss brands which included watch brands but wasn’t a report exclusively about Swiss watchmakers per se. A report from the year before Interbrand’s report was published covered just the top 20 Swiss watch brands. This Swiss watch brand report was published by BV4, a firm of brand valuation experts.

In this report, Rolex is once again the most popular and valuable brand and Ulysse Nardin is not found in the top 20. Mind you, that doesn’t change the fact that Ulysse Nardin is a master-watchmaker and manufactures incredibly well-made watches. They just fell short in a brand popularity contest of sorts and lots of that has to do with their marketing & advertising.

This is one of those cases where the younger brand (Rolex) has the upper hand. While typically in watchmaking, the most respected watchmakers are usually very old very established brands such as Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, for example. Ulysse Nardin is over 50 years older than Rolex yet, Rolex has built an incredibly valuable brand as a watchmaker.

Which is more durable Ulysse Nardin or Rolex watches?
Ulysse Nardin has fine watches and they are built well but how would they stand up against Rolex’s patented Paraflex shock absorbers which are found in many of their watches? Or how the bezels stand against Rolex’s proprietary Cerachrom bezel inserts which are highly scratch resistant and impervious the discoloration associated with prolonged UV ray exposure?

Rolex has invested tremendous resources into improving their watches for day to day use and design many watches made for people with active lifestyles.  Many luxury watch collectors who own many fine watches including those from Ulysse Nardin also own a Rolex which they will use as their go-to every day “Beater” watch.

Ulysse Nardin, on the other hand, has beautifully finished movements and they put a lot of work in the craftsmanship and aesthetics of their movements and in terms of appearance, they are often more pleasing to the eye. In most cases,  several different finishing techniques are used on their calibers and the various plates within to allow them to really shine. 

Which has better water resistance Rolex or Ulysse Nardin?
Both Ulysse Nardin and Rolex have excellent diver watches equipped with enough water resistance for diving enthusiasts (enthusiasts being the operative word here) The Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver, for example, has a water resistance rating of up to 300m/1000ft which is adequate for impact sports such as board diving, scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming.

What about diving professionals? What about some deep-sea diving? What if I want to touch the ocean bed at its deepest point known to man? Between Rolex and Ulysse Nardin, who has the best water-resistant watch (period)? Rolex has. While Ulysse Nardin does have one watch that is particularly better than their standard diving watches, this is, of course, the Ulysse Nardin Deep Dive 46mm which has 1000m/3300ft of water resistance the Rolex Deepsea and has 3900m/12800ft of water resistance. That’s nearly 4 times the water resistance compared to the most water resistant Ulysse Nardin watch.

Which is more accurate, a Rolex or Ulysse Nardin watch?
Let’s start with a primer on how accuracy is graded in the watch industry. At the moment the highest 3rd party designation for accuracy is the Chronometer designation which is issued by COSC. This designation means that your mechanical movement is precise within -4/+6 seconds per day.

Ulysse Nardin is famous for their Marine Chronometers which throughout history allowed ship captains navigate the great waters of this earth using charts that required very precise maneuvers which needed to be timed to perfection.

So, in terms of a question like “Are all Ulysse Nardin watches COSC certified Chronometers?” Most of their collections of men’s watches are such as the Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer, GMT Perpetual Calendars, even many of the watches in the Maxi Marine Diver collection. There are few exceptions though it’s always good to check that it comes with a COSC certificate if accuracy is a concern for you.

Rolex, on the other hand, has taken their precision testing a step beyond the standard COSC certificate. After receiving their movement back from COSC, they place the now COSC certified Rolex calibers in a case and put them through another series of tests which regulates them to even higher accuracy of -2/+2 seconds per day at which point they give their own designation of Superlative Chronometer. All Rolex watches made these days (except for the Cellini collection) have this higher level of accuracy.

Who has more complicated watches, Ulysse Nardin or Rolex?
Ulysse Nardin and Rolex are both very skilled watchmakers. However, when it comes to what the industry calls ‘Haute Horlogerie’ or high horology …simply put: watches with high complications, Rolex falls short.

Ulysse Nardin, on the other hand, has plenty of watches with high complications such as a Tourbillon, Perpetual Calendar watch or even a mechanical Alarm complication. They can be found in the following collections:

What’s more affordable, a Ulysse Nardin watch or a Rolex?
In terms of their most affordable watches and considering the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, the cheapest Rolex is the Oyster Perpetual 39mm which starts at $200 according to the Rolex price list and comes on a stainless-steel bracelet.

The most affordable Ulysse Nardin watch is the Lady Classico at a list price of $200 and for the men, there is the Marine Chronometer Torpilleur both with a list price of $200. Both watches come on a leather strap. A Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer Torpilleur on a steel bracelet would run you about another $200.

What’s more expensive, a Rolex or a Ulysse Nardin watch?
On the higher end of each brand, you’ll find some expensive watches such as diamond-encrusted Ulysse Nardin tourbillon watches for over $1,000,000 and for Rolex fans you’ll find Platinum Rolexes with Diamond Bezels with 6-figure price tags.

Which holds its value more, a Ulysse Nardin or a Rolex?
Typically, a Rolex has a higher average resale value, more than any other brand in the business for that matter. There is more demand for a Rolex since it is a more widely known brand and they produce a very large quantity of watches each year. Their estimated output is estimated at about 2,000 watches per day.

Of course, there are always many variables that get considered with the valuation of a pre-owned watch. The things that are considered include and are not limited to the following:

  • the model itself (think limited edition, rare production flaws etc.)
  • the demand for a specific model (such as Rolex submersibles)
  • if it includes original papers and boxes, warranty cards etc.
  • if it is still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty
  • the condition the watch is in
  • if it was ever serviced and by whom it was serviced
  • the wear and tear on the straps

Many people say they want to “invest” in a luxury watch. It is not recommended to ever look at a fine watch as an investment. Watches are not the kinds of assets that usually appreciate. They do maintain a certain amount of their tangible value but should not be compared to any type of tradition security or investment.

They are like a vehicle in the sense that as soon as you use it, you can already expect it to lose a percentage of its purchase value. Yes, there are watches that have appreciated in value and have sometimes even more than doubled in value. However, these are few and far between and you should never count on this happening.

What is the difference between a Rolex and a Tudor?

The difference between Tudor and Rolex was the movement inside and its respective price point as a result of the less expensive ETA or Valjoux movement. However, Rolex Tudor always recognized the advantage of their direct connection to Rolex in order to improve their sales. Essentially, a Tudor is a Rolex. About Replica watch we can give you best watch

A watch that looks and feels like a Rolex but does not have a Rolex logo just might be, in fact, a Rolex. But, is there a difference between Tudor and Rolex watches? Rolex has a sister line known at Tudor. At the time of this writing, Tudors were not prevalent in the United States. This was because Rolex USA didn’t import Tudor watches. During this time, we found them on the secondary and pre-owned markets because people brought them into the U.S. However, now with Tudor coming to the United States, it will present other mid-priced watch brands with some healthy competition.

Many automobile companies have two different models at differing price points. Well, Rolex has a similar structure with Tudor. Tudor watches utilize the same case material and similar design, similar bracelets and dials. However the movement is typically a Swiss made ETA or Valjoux movement, rather than an in-house Rolex movement. In fact, Rolex manufactures, distributes, and services both watches. But, the differences are in style, movement, and price points. Also, Rolex intended Tudors to appeal to a wider international audience.

Traditionally, Rolex watches exemplify “evolution” rather than “revolution.” Because of this, Tudor models are markedly different from the traditional Rolex line. Tudor allowed Rolex to experiment with styles and materials that were not generally found in the staid Rolex model line. The utilization of cloth watch straps, titanium cases, vibrant colors and dials are commonplace for Tudor. Honoring the Tudor period in England, Hans Wilsdorf unveiled the line in 1946 with the intent of having a Rolex pedigreed wristwatch available to the common man. Early Tudors have a Tudor Rose emblem, which changed to the Tudor shield during the 1960’s.

Because Tudors utilize the same case, crown, crystal, and bracelet design as Rolex, Tudors are the go-to tool watch for many entities including sportsmen and various branches of the armed forces. Up until that last few decades, Tudor watches utilized Rolex signed crowns, bracelets and crystals. The difference between Tudor and Rolex was the movement inside and its respective price point as a result of the less expensive ETA or Valjoux movement. However, Rolex Tudor always recognized the advantage of their direct connection to Rolex in order to improve their sales.

Essentially, a Tudor is a Rolex. Similar packaging, similar styles, similar quality and timing, similar metal (both gold and stainless models), and both are serviceable at any Rolex Service Center. Tudor Watches Men
