Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. 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 understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inverygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantial compliment for the maker— because if even a person who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, toughand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the motions along withfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating 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 far morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.

The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.

It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is true to a lower degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models 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 perhaps even more, than the original purchase cost.
