Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the 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 huge compliment for the manufacturer— because if even an individual who knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, toughand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor 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 moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Quicklyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Yacht Master Steel.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefulmodificationsto the iconicstyle of individualmodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are alteredonlyverygradually. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofnumerousdifferentdesigns and haverarelygone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
