Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutextremelygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only 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 huge compliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knowsnothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You won’t find a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brandintroducedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Ladies.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousmodificationsto the renownedstyle of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is true 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 stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initial purchase rate.
