Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They might be less interested inexceptionallygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the maker— because if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, strongand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You won’t find 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 producerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name 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 remarkablelegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of specificmodel collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.

It’s why it is constantlyeasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
