Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most popularamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand 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 hugecompliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, durableand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You won’t discover 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 morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizabledesign, Rolex News.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuouslyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicstyle of specificdesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes over the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is true to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase rate.
