Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most well-knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutincrediblyfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, just 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 bigcompliment for the producer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time accuratelyand are robust, toughand trusted.
Keepingregularly high quality with estimatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to omituncommonissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandpresentedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed 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 systemfollowed a number of years later– due to the fact that to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefeatures– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.

The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousmodificationsto the renowneddesign of individualdesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is true to a lesser degreefor 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 sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase price.
