Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamongst 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 primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the producer— because if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches reveal time properlyand are robust, sturdyand dependable.
Maintainingconsistently 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 leave outunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display screen, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not 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 far morepriceyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand namepresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Instantlyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Zifferblatt.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousmodificationsto the renowneddesign of specificmodel collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. SeespecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is real to a lower levelfor 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 stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
