Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutexceptionallygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around look fordailywear.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t 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 makerswith far moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The 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, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Explorer 11.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes 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 keptand continuallyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lower extentfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase cost.
