Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst 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.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutextremelygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around look fordailywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment 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 extremelyhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, durableand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end makerswith far moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite 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 certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that 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 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Indonesia.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the iconicdesign of privatemodel collections over the yearshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. WatchexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is real to a lower levelfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase price.
