The new, higher calibre 3085
With the Rolex Fat Lady, the Swiss manufacturer has set a milestone in the field of travel watches. With calibre 3085 installed in the Ref. 16760, the 12-hour hand could be adjusted independently via the crown for the first time thanks to the "quick set hour hand" function. For the first time, it was possible to set a second time zone without using the bezel. For frequent travellers, this was a considerable relief. Additionally, three different time zones could now be displayed on the Rolex Fat Lady when using the bezel.
Since the installed calibre 3085 was more sophisticated than the previously used movement, Rolex built the superior Ref. 16760. In addition to the Fat Lady's thick crown protector and its Coke bezel, the taller case is, therefore, one of the watch's characteristic design features.
