Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the 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 hugecompliment for the producer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, strongand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor 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 makerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand namepresentedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– since to ensurethe 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 product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all 3features– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Repairs.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are keptand constantlyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are alteredjustreallyslowly. Commondesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveraldifferentdesigns and have actuallyhardly everundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The minute you buy a vehicle, it drops in value by half. This fact is true to a lowerextent for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any customer— regardless of whether they are purchasing the look forthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a smartdecision.
