Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inextremelyfine, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around look forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the 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 substantialcompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh item quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time preciselyand are robust, durableand trusted.
Keepingconsistently high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outunusualcomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion 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 ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto 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 item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuouslyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the decadeshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. ViewexpertGisbert 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– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the original purchase cost.
