Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutverygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex customersdo notunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment for the maker— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel 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 preciselyand are robust, durableand trusted.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with projectedannual production varieties 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, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date display, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t 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 very first watch to integrate all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizabledesign, Watch Rolex Men.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousmodificationsto the iconicstyle of specificmodel collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedjustveryslowly. Normaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofnumerousdifferentmodels and have actuallyhardly evergone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is real to a lower levelfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase rate.
