tid bit of info for you :-)

Ever wonder what a cap jewel is or an "Inca bloc shock system is all about?"

A cap jewel you will find on both sides of the balance wheel staff (pivot)  and this piece (cap jewel) is under a very small spring that closes down on the jewel but lets it float a little so if G-d forbid you drop your watch the balance staff that fits right underneath it will move up and down a fraction so it will not snap as the cap jewel is held in by the small inca bloc spring as mentioned just before. You have a small friction jewel just under the cap jewel and this small friction jewel has a hole in the center and this is where the balance staff goes into, to keep the balance straight and the cap jewel is flat on the balance staff side and rounded on top so the Inca bloc spring keeps a it snug in place but will let it move a fraction of a mm to give the staff protein from falls. Without an Inca bloc system on both plates of the balance if the watch is dropped there is no give and the balance will snap in half and you are looking at a major repair job.

October 7, 1927. It was a cold October morning, and Miss Mercedes Gleitze (1900-1981), a London typist and part-time professional swimmer from Brighton, was about to make her eighth attempt at swimming the English Channel. Just a year prior (on July 29, 1926), Rolex patented the first waterproof wristwatch: the Rolex Oyster. When Hans Wilsdorf (the cofounder and Managing Director of Rolex) got word of the vindication swim, he saw this as a golden opportunity to promote his new creation. Wilsdorf wasted no time, and on October 14, dispatched a letter to Miss Gleitze by way of the S. T. Garland advertising service. By this letter, he formally agreed to provide her with a gift wristlet watch to be worn during the upcoming swim. In exchange, Gleitze would provide a written testimonial on the performance of the watch after the swim.

It may sound a bit more romantic to say that Mercedes wore a Rolex on her wrist as she swam across the English Channel, but this, unfortunately, was not the case. While she did “carry” a Rolex for more than ten hours during her vindication swim, it was not on her wrist, nor was it during the “successful” fifteen-hour swim she is remembered for. This is simply a story that has had some “specifics” misquoted over the years. With that being said, on October 25, 1927, Mercedes Gleitze forwarded a letter to Rolex, which summed it up very well, and read as follows: “You will like to hear that the Rolex Oyster watch I carried on my Channel swim proved itself a reliable and accurate timekeeping companion even though it was subjected to complete immersion for hours in sea water at a temp of not more than 58 and often as low as 51. This is to say nothing about the sustained buffeting it must have received. Not even the quick change to the high temp of the boat cabin when I was lifted from the water seemed to affect the even tenour of its movement. The newspaper man was astonished and I, of course, am delighted with it…”

Again, while Mercedes was unsuccessful on her vindication swim, the significance of this feat was not lost on Rolex, as it heavily promoted it in its now-famous London Daily Mail front-page advertisement on November 24, of that same year “Rolex introduces for the first time the greatest triumph in Watch-making – ROLEX ‘OYSTER’ – The Wonder Watch That Defies The Elements. MOISTURE PROOF WATER PROOF HEAT PROOF VIBRATION PROOF COLD PROOF DUST PROOF”
