About Rolex Watches
Rolex was founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf at the age of 24 along with his relative Alfred Davis. Originally based in London, the company started out importing Swiss movements and combining them with finely made watch cases. In 1908 the company officially took the name Rolex and moved its operations to Switzerland. Hans Wilsdorf wanted a name that was short and easy to remember and looked good on a watch dial and movement. By 1910 Rolex watch was the first wristwatch in the world to acquire a Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision. In 1914. the Kew Observatory in London awarded a Rolex watch a class A precision certificate which until then had only been reserved for marine chronometers. From then on Rolex watches would always be known for precision timepieces.
In 1920, Rolex’s final destination was the city of Geneva, Switzerland. In 1926 Rolex introduced the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch. The watch would be known as the Oyster and it would forever change the world of fine wristwatches.. Hans Wilsdorf guided the legendary Rolex company until his death in 1944. Since then Rolex has been managed and directed by a charitable foundation in Switzerland.
In the 1950s, Rolex would introduce professional watches whose functions would go byond the mere telling of time. They would be as valuable as any tool on adventures as far reachng as Mount Everest.
In 1953 Rolex would introduce to the world, the iconic Submariner watch. Water proof to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet). The watch would feature a rotatable bezel allowing divers to read immersion time.
In 1955 the Rolex GMT-Master was born. In 1956 the Rolex Day-Date. In 1960 the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona became an instant icon as the ultimate tool watch for professional auto drivers.
Today Rolex continues to innovate and set the standards for fine Swiss watchmaking.
