Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle. Connoisseurspurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inincrediblygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded look forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the manufacturer— because if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality crossing the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time properlyand are robust, strongand reputable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualproblems.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith a lot morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– 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 first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Datejust 36Mm.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the decadeshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you buy a vehicle, it drops in value by half. This fact is true to a lesserextent 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 sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any client— no matter whether they are buying the watch forthis particularfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a sensibledecision.
