Rolex: A Century of Luxury & Innovation

History of an Icon

With its famed history of precision and innovation, the Rolex name remains a leader in the watchmaking industry. Visionary watchmaker Hans Wilsdorf is responsible for creating and building the world of Rolexes. In 1914, Rolex was the first ever watchmaker to be awarded with a Class A Precision Certificate, an honor formerly reserved for marine chronometers. Rolex became the gold standard of luxury watches with its 1931 invention of the world's first self-winding watch mechanism. Today, all timepieces are built with this mechanism. Despite being associated with celebrity red carpet appearances, Rolex was originally famous for designing watch models that could withstand extreme climates and deep-sea depths. When choosing a watch sidekick for their adventures, mountaineers, world travelers, and deep-sea divers find a durable friend in Rolex as they traverse unchartered territory.

Unmatched Quality

All Rolexes contain a self-winding Oyster movement, which guarantees high performance, long-term durability, and top-notch precision. The Rolex ceramic bezel is also incredibly resistant to corrosion and is virtually scratch-proof. If your Rolex watch model contains a steel case, it is manufactured from 904L steel, a super alloy that is highly polishable and equipped to withstand significant wear and tear.

A Safer Investment than the Stock Market

In 2007, Rolex was awarded a slot on BusinessWeek’s Top 100 List of Global Brands. Despite producing over 800,000 luxury watches annually, Rolex remains one of the most counterfeited luxury products in the world. Worldwide appreciation and precision craftsmanship have helped to foster a market for Rolex that rarely dips in value. The power of the Rolex brand and the high standard behind which every watch is made has led to an incredibly strong resale market.

Your Wrist, Your Choice

When you seal a deal with a handshake, make sure the watch on your wrist matches your personality. Fortunately Rolex offers a wide variety choices. A few of the most popular models include the Submariner, Daytona, Datejust and Day-Date, but every model is welcome.

Getting the Most Out of Your Rolex Watch

A Rolex watch is much like an automobile in that proper cleaning and maintenance will help to ensure a higher value down the road. Watches have a ton of moving parts, and if one of those parts is off by even a fraction of a degree, the entire mechanism will suffer. Make sure to take your Rolex in for a “tune-up” every four years or so to make sure all the bits and pieces inside the case of the watch are moving as they should. Regular cleanings can also have a dramatic effect on a watch’s value. A clean, polished bracelet and a well-functioning clasp can mean a world of difference when our team of evaluators is determining the final value of your Rolex watch. Make sure to hold on to your original box and paperwork as well. Not only does it add to the watch’s overall value, it helps our evaluator’s to establish the legitimacy of your Rolex.
