Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, toughand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not find 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 manufacturerswith far moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has become 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– due to the fact that to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Yacht Master 2 Gold.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renownedstyle of individualdesign collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyreallygradually. Normaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofnumerousdifferentmodels and haveseldomundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is real to a lesser degreefor 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 classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase price.
