Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They may be less interested inverygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around expectday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, sturdyand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement 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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– since to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Watch Turner.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the iconicstyle of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is true to a lower extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initial purchase cost.
