Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inextremelyfine, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantial compliment for the maker— because if even a person who knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, strongand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This is true for the movements along withfor 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 rivals– even other high-end producerswith far morecostlyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– due to the fact that to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Datejust Watch.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuouslyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of specificmodel collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.

It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.

The minute you buy a vehicle, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lowerextent for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase price. This is an appealing point for any consumer— regardless of whether they are buying the expectthis specificreason or any other. It’s assuring to know you’ve made a wisedecision. Rolex Datejust Watch.
