Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator 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— because if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, sturdyand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This is true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith much morecostlyitems.
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 actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– due to the fact that to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Instantlyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Official Site.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renowneddesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality is real to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs 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 maybe even more, than the initial purchase price.
