Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearly the most widely knownamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow 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 bigcompliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches reveal time accuratelyand are robust, durableand dependable.
Maintainingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omituncommonissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions along withfor the case. You will not find 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 manufacturerswith much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans 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 (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Yachtmaster 2 Gold.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. SeespecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality is real to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs 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 perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
