The History of Rolex Watches
After its humble beginnings, Rolex has now become synonymous with luxury and success in horology. In 1910, it became the first-ever watch to receive the “Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision.” By 1919, the company had grown and expanded so much that it moved to Geneva, Switzerland.
In 1926, the Oyster watch, the most critical part of the Rolex collection, became the world’s first waterproof and dustproof watch. The first automatic watch (with automatic winding) is also an official Rolex creation, debuting in 1931. Today, Rolex is the largest luxury watch company, retailing in over 100 countries and producing approx. 2,000 watches per day.
Rolex’s history is further linked to 24-year-old Hans Wilsdorf, who founded a unique company in London in 1905 that specialized in timepiece distribution. He dreamt of creating a watch you could wear on your wrist, and he soon fulfilled his dream.
In the early 1900s, wristwatches weren’t extremely precise. Wilsdorf still had the vision to make timepieces that would not only offer a luxury accessory to users but also be a reliable method for telling time. The growth of this luxury watch brand continued, eventually creating a household, luxury brand name that is considered the best in the world today.
Rolex – Personifying Eternal Elegance Since 1905
Rolex watches are icons of luxury like a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Gucci dress, or Prada bag. Rolex timepieces are eternal, and they personify elegance and nobility as no other brand can.
The secret to this company’s success lies in its consistency, the design of the Rolex Oyster series has barely changed over the decades. Improvements to minute details are barely noticeable even after a second glance. This strategy, along with excellent attention to detail, has allowed these watches to become classics, making them instantly recognizable and raising their collector’s value.
These watches largely retain their value due to this timeless and consistent design. The situation is similar for other well-known iconic Rolex models, such as the Day-Date, Datejust, Daytona, and Submariner.
The Geneva-based manufacturer sells around 1 million watches a year, meaning they make almost 2.5 billion USD. Interestingly, they also tend to introduce more gold into circulation than any other watch manufacturer.
The brand’s reputation is also supported by the fact that they’ve remained independent, and their watches are almost entirely crafted in-house. Many other well-known luxury watch brands belong to large concerns. Another secret to their success is their very discreet company policy. Tours of their factory workshop are infrequent, the CEOs seldom give interviews, and their annual profits are mostly kept private.

Further, the brand currently produces about a dozen different watch models. Among the most timeless of the iconic models are:
Rolex first released the Day-Date collection in 1956. It showcased several innovative and unique features for the time. It included the date and day discs from which the model gets its name—designed in collaboration with Pan Am Airlines for pilots and navigators, the Day-Date displays two time zones at once. Before GPS came into being, an accurate source for GMT was a must for aviation planning, weather forecasts, and scheduling.
The President, also known as “El Presidente,” is named after its first recipient, President Dwight D. Eisenhower. This Day-Date model was the first to display the day and date in its entirety – customized with The President bracelet.
The Oyster Perpetual Datejust or simply Datejust is the first wristwatch to feature a date function. This model also served as the basis for the Submariner and gave Wilsdorf the idea of marine chronometers. Chuck Yeager was wearing the Perpetual Datejust right when he broke the sound barrier in 1947.
The Air-King is one of the longest, continuously manufactured Rolex models and is also among the most affordable. The manually-wound “Warrior Watch” was created by Wilsdorf to be used by the British Royal Air Force during the ‘30s.
The Cosmograph Daytona is the archetype of the sports watch for racing drivers. The Late Legend Paul Newman got it as a gift from his wife in 1972, and he wore it every day until his passing in 2008.
In 1953, Rolex sponsored an expedition to Mount Everest and gave a climber the then newly created Oyster Perpetual watch (it didn’t yet bear the iconic Explorer name). However, it became the first watch to reach Everest’s peak and inspired the Explorer collection. One of the most notable versions is Ref. 1016, which incredibly remained in production for 26 years.
The GMT Master II was designed in collaboration with Pan Am Airlines to be used by pilots and navigators. The Rolex GMT Master displays two time zones at once. Before GPS existed, an accurate GMT source was a must for weather forecasts, aviation planning, and other kinds of scheduling.
The brand released the Sky-Dweller in 2012. It was the first-ever watch to offer both dual time zones as well as an annual calendar, and the calendar needs resetting every fourth year to accommodate Leap Year.
The Submariner was initially designed for diving and boasted an impressive maximum submersible depth of 300 meters. The Submariner has been famously worn on 007’s wrist in 11 James Bond movies.
The Date Sea-Dweller line of watches, designed with professional divers in mind, is the most water-resistant mechanical watch and dive watch on the market. Director James Cameron affixed one to the DSV Deep-sea Challenger as it made its dive into the deepest point of any ocean.
Rolex designed the Milgauss line of watches as an antimagnetic watch for those who work in places where electromagnetic fields disrupt the timing mechanism, like scientific research labs and power plants. Derived from the Latin words mille and gauss, this watch can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gausses.
The brand first released Yacht-Master in 1992; this line of sports watches is also available in a lady’s model and is notable for being the first model to release with a man’s model with smaller dimensions.
