Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notunderstand 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 substantialcompliment for the manufacturer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality crossing the many years of its presence. Rolex watches reveal time properlyand are robust, toughand dependable.
Keepingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outuncommonproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the motions along withfor 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 manufacturerswith far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brand namepresentedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the prominentKew-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 qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t 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 decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Watch Clock.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycarefulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
