In the world of horology, Rolex and Omega are both well known for their mass produced, highly industrialised watch movements. There is an eternal debate which is constantly raging between watch fans of both brands, ie Who Makes a Better Movement – Rolex or Omega?.
John Holbrook II of Rolex Reference Page has recently joined the debate with a very well written article which explores in detail the so called work horse movements from Rolex and Omega, namely the 3135 and 1120 calibers. Despite the potential bias due to John being the Owner of Rolex Reference Page, he had succeeded in presenting the discussion in a balanced and objective manner. Highly recommended read for the Rolex and Omega fans.
