Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most popularamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutveryfine, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator 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— since if even a person who understandsnothingabout watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh item quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time preciselyand are robust, durableand dependable.
Keepingregularly high quality with projectedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to leave outunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t find 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 producerswith a lot morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandpresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the prominentKew-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 become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Watch Zurich.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the iconicstyle of individualdesign collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in worth 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 models and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the originalpurchase rate. This is an attractive point for any consumer— no matter whether they are purchasing the expectthis specificreason or any other. It’s assuring to know you’ve made a wisechoice. Rolex Watch Zurich.
