Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow 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 hugecompliment for the maker— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, toughand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t discover a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very 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 necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented 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 basics.

The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyextremelyslowly. Typicalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofa number ofdifferentmodels and havehardly everundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to recognize a Rolex from a range.

Keeps its worth.
The moment you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This reality is true to a lesserdegree for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless-steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any client— no matter whether they are buying the expectthis particularreason or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a wisedecision.
