Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very 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 hugecompliment for the maker— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, sturdyand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions along withfor 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 rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– due to the fact that to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.

The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lesser degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase cost.
