Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Enthusiastsbuy Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They may be less interested inverygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex clientsdo notunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment for the maker— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time properlyand are robust, durableand dependable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to omituncommonproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date screen, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not find a turning 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 producerswith far morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented 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 style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renownedstyle of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no abruptstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustreallygradually. Normaldesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofseveralvariousmodels and havehardly evergone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality is real to a lesser levelfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
