Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutextremelygreat, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expectdailywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the manufacturer— because if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, sturdyand dependable.
Keepingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandpresentedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
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 standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– due to the fact that 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 2features are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.

It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. EnjoyexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
