Buying a Rolex Watch – A Dream for Many
With timeless classics such as the Submariner, Oyster and Daytona, it is not strange that Rolex is one of, if not the most, well-known producer of exclusive watches in the world. Many dream in life of one day buying a Rolex watch.
Rolex has reached its status by offering high quality workmanship combined with beautiful design. It takes almost one year to develop a watch, and despite this, Rolex sells around 1 million watches every year. Since Rolex is incredibly strict about its quality, no shortcuts are taken during production. Among other things, certain watches are tested in pressure chambers and underwater to make sure they are without flaws. This naturally contributes to both a high level of quality and a long production time. Most parts of a Rolex are produced in their own factory in Switzerland.
In addition to its iconic logo and timeless design, a Rolex is also characterised by the steel used in the watch. Since 2003, the watches have been produced using 904L steel. This material is not only more exclusive, it is also a considerably complicated material to work with. This led to Rolex making changes in its production, but having exquisite results that create a very special feeling and shimmer.

Rolex – A History of Adventure
The history of Rolex began during the early 1900s, when Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf started a company in London with imported Swiss watchwork. He was already beginning to dream of watches that were more precise, reliable and elegant than were available at the time. In 1910, Rolex had already developed its first watch that was certified for chronographic precision. In 1920, the company moved from London to Geneva, Switzerland. Rolex developed the classic Oyster model, the first waterproof watch, in 1926. One year later, the watch was tested when Mercedes Gleitze swam the English Channel.
The history of Rolex is marked by remarkable and groundbreaking discoveries and adventures. The first pilot to fly over Mount Everest, the two times that humans have been at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, and the speed record over the Bonneville Salt Flats during the 1930s all have one thing in common. Those people all chose to buy a Rolex watch.
