Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainly the most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brands.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow much about watches, just 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 substantialcompliment for the maker— because if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time preciselyand are robust, toughand reputable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with projectedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualcomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display screen, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not find a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Deep Sea Dweller.
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. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are preservedand continuouslyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of individualmodel collections over the decadeshaveresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you buy a vehicle, it drops in worth by half. This fact is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any customer— no matter whether they are buying the look forthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a sensibledecision. Rolex Deep Sea Dweller.
