Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the maker— because if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, durableand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not discover a turning 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 makerswith far moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the prominentKew-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 ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– because 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 twofunctions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.

The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are preservedand continuouslyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of individualmodel collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.

It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is true to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs 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 original purchase rate.
