Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Basicallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand namepresentedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the renownedKew-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 qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and 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– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Submariner Hulk.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of individualmodel collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a distance. SeeprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is true to a lower 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 maybe even more, than the initial purchase rate.
