Rolex Time-Keeping Excellence…

Rolex is by far one of the most sought-after watchmakers in the world today. For generations  the brand has been highly regarded and revered for its impeccable craftsmanship and design, making it one of the top watch choices for royalty, heads-of-state, dignitaries and public figures.

ROLEX-116233-PO
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust

The brand is also noted for being one of the best watch brands that keeps it value over time and depreciates far less than perhaps other watch brand. Founded in 1905 in London, England by entrepreneurs Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis, the brand was originally conceived as a private label distributor, which imported premium Swiss-made watch movements and housed them in luxury cases that they sold to jewelers, imprinting the establishment’s names on the dials.

Wilsdorf and Davis opened a watch production facility in Le Chaux-de Fonds, Switzerland three years later in 1908 and registered the Rolex trademark name that same year, incorporating the standards of their high-end private labels in a new brand that has gone on to become synonymous with time-keeping excellence.

In 1910, Rolex was the very first watchmaker to be awarded official Chronometer certification from the highly esteemed COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute) for its precision crafted automatic and mechanical timepieces.

Today almost all Rolex timepieces feature automatic movements inside and also have official Chronometer certification. You’ll find many outstanding Rolex watches at TheWatchery.com, including prestigious styles from the esteemed Daytona, Oyster Datejust, Submariner and Yacht-Master Collections.
