Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most popularamongst the world’s luxury watch brands.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandreallylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very 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 huge compliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even a person who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality crossing the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time properlyand are robust, toughand dependable.
Maintainingregularly 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 advantage to omituncommonissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date display screen, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t find a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– because 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 first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Root Beer.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are maintainedand constantlyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the iconicstyle of specificdesign collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are alteredjustreallyslowly. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofa number ofdifferentmodels and have actuallyhardly everundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is real to a lesser levelfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
