History: Rolex 3085 is a calibre by Rolex. Automatic winding Rolex Caliber 3085 with 27 jewels and adjusted to 5 positions and temperature. This movement provides 24 hour time (second timezone) by means of the red hand which revolves around the dial once every 24 hours. The 12 hour hand can be moved in one hour increments independently of the red 24 hour hand, thereby allowing the wearer to track a second timezone. The local and 24 hour hands are normally left in synchronization with each other to let the wearer know if it is AM or PM (remember this watch was designed for cave explorers who may lose track of day or nighttime). The movement is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer. Self-winding movement, bi-directional winding, 28,800 A/h, 27 jewels, GMT function (dual time zone) and date indication. Used in previous editions of the models GMT-Master II and Explorer II Ref. 16550.

Description: Self-winding movement, bi-directional winding; Chronometer certificate (COSC); Breguet hairspring; Microstella precision adjustment with regulation screws; Kif shock protection.
Rolex SA (/ˈroʊlɛks/) is a Swiss luxury watchmaker. The company and its subsidiary Montres Tudor SA design, manufacture, distribute and service wristwatches sold under the Rolex and Tudor brands. Founded by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905 as Wilsdorf and Davis, Rolex moved its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919. Forbes ranked Rolex 64th on its 2016 list of the world's most powerful global brands.[Rolex is the largest single high end watch brand. The company is owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a private family trust.

Alfred Davis and his brother-in-law Hans Wilsdorf founded Wilsdorf and Davis, the company that would eventually become Rolex SA, in London, England in 1905. Wilsdorf and Davis' main commercial activity at the time involved importing Hermann Aegler's Swiss movements to England and placing them in high-quality watch cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were sold to jewellers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from Wilsdorf and Davis were usually hallmarked "W&D" inside the caseback.
