Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inexceptionallygreat, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not discover 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 manufacturerswith far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-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 actually ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto 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 decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Pepsi Gmt.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuouslyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicdesign of specificmodel collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no abruptstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedjustverygradually. Commonstylefunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveraldifferentdesigns and have actuallyrarelygone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
EnjoyexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
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 situationfor gold Oyster models and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase cost.
