The Rolex Caliber 5055 was constructed as much as possible along the same lines as the mechanical movements Rolex had been building for decades. The bridge, gear train and pallet assembly would be recognizable to anyone with a familiarity of the inner workings of a Rolex movement. In fact, the entire drive mechanism of the 5055 is based very much on a traditional escapement, with the exception of the pulse motor and electronics.  The movements utilized the latest CMOS circuitry, a 32khz oscillator, and analog thermocompensation.  In addition, they were finished to even higher standards than Rolex’s mechanical movements.
