Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inexceptionallygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around expectdailywear.
Other Rolex customersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator 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 an individual who knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, sturdyand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith far morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily 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 (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Quicklyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Watch India.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycarefulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of specificmodel collections over the yearshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental changes for many years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedjustextremelyslowly. Normalstylefunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofnumerousdifferentmodels and havehardly evergone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
SeeprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This fact is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the originalpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any customer— regardless of whether they are purchasing the watch forthis specificfactor or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a smartdecision.
