Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the producer— since if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality crossing the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, strongand reputable.
Keepingregularly high quality with estimatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outuncommonproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith a lot morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brand namepresentedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– since to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Bond Street.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are maintainedand constantlyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefulmodificationsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is true to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initial purchase rate.
