Rolex is a watch brand that has some of the most prestige and respect of any brand on the world market. In today’s world, with everything being so close, interconnected, and accessible, that is saying a lot; while people are now able to buy more watches than ever before, often without leaving their home, they are still choosing Rolex more than any other brand. Rolex has been producing quality watches for a long time, and they have built up a reputation that they can be proud of. These luxury watches are still coming out of Switzerland each and every day, and they are as popular and dependable as they have ever been in the past.
Rolex began in 1908, though the creator of the watches, a man named Hans Wilsdorf, actually began selling watches under the name “Wilsdorf and Davis” in 1905. The watches were relocated to Switzerland when they changed over to being “Rolex,” and they have stayed there ever since. As can be seen, this is a company that has been in business for a long time, and they still stick to the personal touch that they had when Hans Wilsdorf first went into business, despite the fact that they are now an international corporation that brings in huge amounts of revenue every year.
Much of the prestige of Rolex has come from the fact that they have always prided themselves on quality. They have been awarded certificates that state that their quality is unmatched, such as the Class A Precision certificate that they received from Kew Observatory. They have always had the reputation for having watches that are this precise, this perfect, and the owners of those watches are glad to back up the reputation with stories from personal experience.
Another reason for their prestige is that they have been the first to make a great many innovations. They had the first waterproof case, for example, and they also had the first day and date that changed automatically.
As can be seen, Rolex watches are some of the best in the world. They have been considered the best for a long time, and with good reason.
