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. Read on to know a little bit more about them:
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.
Eloquently released in 1945 to celebrate Rolex’s 40th anniversary, the Datejust was the first and only automatic watch with a date window. The epitome of elegance became the paradigm of horological glamour and is one of the most diverse models within the Rolex canon.
Rolex first released the Air-King in 1958. It builds upon the legacy of Rolex watches used by aviators since the ‘30s. For those who spend their lives in the cockpit, they need one thing from their watch above all else, and, i.e., legibility. The Air-King is the most elegant of Rolex’s timepieces and your perfect companion for every occasion.
The Cosmograph Daytona is, for all intents and purposes, the most iconic timepiece ever released. Its 3 subdial layout is instantly recognizable along with its engraved bezel and the 4130 caliber. What sets it apart, however, is the person wears it as the Daytona is one of the finest chronographs out there.
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 Rolex GMT Master was the first dual time zone wristwatch. It used a 24-hour hand and rotating bezel to show the second time as per your choice. The modern GMT-Master II perfected this mechanism. The 24-hour hand in the contemporary iteration is set independently from the 12-hour, allowing 3 different time zones to be displayed at once. The most popular version of the two-tone bezel variations is the ‘Pepsi Cola’ known for its blue/red day/night bezel.
The Sky-Dweller is for those who like to fly first class. Instead of the practical rotating bezel, you can see the second time zone in this watch at the off-center rotating disc at 6 o’clock. And you can easily set a load of features this watch has, such as the reference time, the local time, and calendar, simply by turning the so-called command bezel into different positions. Interestingly, even the most basic Sky-Dweller has 11 patents.
The quintessential dive watch – The Submariner is the first actual water-resistant watch that put Rolex on the radar. This watch has quite a few professional touches, such as 300m depth resistance, a unidirectional rotating bezel, and a rugged case. The simplicity of the dial combined with various dial colors and metals means you can wear the Submariner with anything.
With the Sea-Dweller’s launch in 1967, even the Submariner got pushed to the extreme. There are two different versions of the Sea-Dweller. The Deep-Sea version has more powerful water-resistance qualities than the original; it can perfectly work up to 3,900m.
For the scientific community, strong magnetic fields are a regular occurrence, generated by plenty of necessary equipment and around the scientifically-valuable poles. Rolex designed the Milgauss line of watches for people who work in places where electromagnetic fields do not let the timing mechanism work. It even led to its adoption by the European Organization of Nuclear Research, CERN. Derived from the Latin words mille and gauss, this watch can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gausses.
The Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II models embody the spirit of the sailor. The watch of the open seas is a huge part of the rich heritage that connects Rolex to the world of sailing. The Yacht-Master is easy to use, easy to read and blends functionality with style. It also brings together the finest in Rolex technology to result in a regatta chronograph explicitly built for your yachting passion.
