Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inextremelyfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around expectdailywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator 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 maker— because if even a person who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, sturdyand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have 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 become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Toronto.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. SeeprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the original purchase cost.
