Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutexceptionallygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the 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 producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time properlyand are robust, durableand reliable.
Preservingconsistently 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 benefit to leave outunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display screen, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand namepresentedinnovativefunctionsquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to guaranteethe 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 twofunctions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.

The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicdesign of individualmodel collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower levelfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase cost.
