Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just 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 substantialcompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, toughand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith a lot moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the popularKew-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 ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– since to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto 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 combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Watch Japan.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are preservedand continuouslyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no unexpecteddesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustextremelyslowly. Normalstylefunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toa number ofvariousdesigns and haveseldomundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
