Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutveryfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded look fordailywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the primarymotivator 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 producer— since if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time preciselyand are robust, strongand reputable.
Preservingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to omitunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t 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 much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brand namepresentedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– since to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.

The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the renownedstyle of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you buy an automobile, it drops in worth by half. This fact is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel a minimum of (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 initialpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any consumer— despite whether they are buying the watch forthis particularfactor or any other. It’s assuring to know you’ve made a smartchoice. Rolex Yachtmaster 42.
