Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inveryfine, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around expectday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time accuratelyand are robust, durableand trusted.
Maintainingregularly high quality with estimatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to leave outuncommoncomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display screen, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This is true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not discover a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandpresentedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Cosmograph Daytona.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand constantlyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of specificdesign collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you buy a cars and truck, it drops in worth by half. This truth is true to a lowerdegree for 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 elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any customer— no matter whether they are buying the expectthis specificfactor or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a wisechoice.
