Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, toughand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not find 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 much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3features– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no abruptstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyextremelygradually. Typicaldesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofnumerousdifferentdesigns and haverarelygone 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.
ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you buy a vehicle, it drops in worth by half. This reality is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase rate. This is an appealing point for any consumer— despite whether they are purchasing the look forthis particularreason or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a wisechoice.
