Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Connoisseurspurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutextremelyfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the maker— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, strongand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t find a turning 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 producerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Norwich.
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 webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are alteredjustreallyslowly. Typicalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong tonumerousdifferentmodels and have actuallyhardly everundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
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 designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
