Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainlythe most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Enthusiastsbuy Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They might be less interested inincrediblyfine, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the 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 big compliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even a person who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, toughand reliable.
Preservingregularly high quality with projectedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outuncommoncomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith far morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand namepresentedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Jubilee Band.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuouslyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicdesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no abruptdesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyveryslowly. Typicalstylefunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofseveralvariousdesigns and have actuallyhardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
WatchexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
