Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutveryfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, only 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 substantialcompliment 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.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time properlyand are robust, strongand reliable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with approximatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to leave outunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a big date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t 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 makerswith far morecostlyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Quartz Gold.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand constantlyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the iconicdesign of privatemodel collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes over the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. SeeprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
