Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most popularamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Fanaticsbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutincrediblygreat, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around look fordailywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the maker— since if even a person who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, strongand reliable.
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 turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Tiffany.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of specificdesign collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. WatchexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initial purchase price.
