Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the 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 manufacturer— because if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, durableand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the motions 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 makerswith far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all 3features– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Vancouver.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the renowneddesign of privatemodel collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower extentfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
