Rolex’s inception took place when Hans Willsdorf founded a company, intended to develop and design new timepieces. At that time, wrist watches were not really popular, and people usually purchased used luxury watches, which gave Hans a great business opportunity for developing a proper and accurate wrist watch. This ambition led Rolex to win the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision in 1910 as well as Class “A” Precision Certificate by Kew Observatory in 1914. One of the most amazing developments was of the Oyster watch - the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch. It has repeatedly proved to be effective and durable. In 1927, a swimmer crossed the English Channel while wearing this watch, and in 1933, the expedition to fly over Everest also utilized this watch. Even Sir Malcom Campbell was a fan of it, which suggests the high level of the watch’s popularity and innovativeness for its times. In 1945, Rolex introduced the Date Just watch model for the first time, followed by GMT-Master designed specifically for pilots. After that, the Day-date watch was introduced, showing time, date, and the day of the week as well. All these innovations played a positive role in Rolex’s growth and fame. The story of Rolex’s success is quite long and its success comes from its determination to provision of high-quality products. If you are on a budget, it’s better to get one of the pre owned Rolex watches, since the new ones are very expensive.
