Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamongst the world’s luxury watch brands.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment for the manufacturer— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel 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 accuratelyand are robust, toughand reputable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with estimatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to omituncommoncomplications.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements as well asfor the case. You will not find a turning 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 far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandpresentedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion to the prominentKew-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 actually become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Rainbow Daytona.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefulmodificationsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no abruptdesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyveryslowly. Commonstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofseveralvariousmodels and have actuallyhardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is true to a lower degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase rate.
