Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inincrediblyfine, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded watch forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the producer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith much morecostlyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Wimbledon.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousmodificationsto the renownedstyle of individualdesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
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 expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is true to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase cost.
