The quality of Rolex
Since its founding, Rolex has been committed to making watches of the highest possible quality. Rolex uses only the finest materials and craftsmanship in its watches and timepieces. Rolex is also known for its innovation: it was the first watchmaker to mass-produce waterproof watches and created the first self-winding movement that is still used in Rolex watches today. Even today, Rolex remains at the forefront of watchmaking by constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
The brand’s products can be divided into dress watches and sports watches. They include, among others, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Rolex Datejust, Rolex Day-Date, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Milgauss, Rolex Explorer I and II, Rolex GMT Master I and II, Rolex Sky-Dweller, Rolex Sea Dweller, and the Rolex Submariner.
Rolex dress watches
Introduced in 1926, Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual collection is one of the brand’s most iconic models. The Oyster Perpetual is water-resistant and has a self-winding movement. The Rolex Datejust, introduced in 1945, is Rolex’s flagship watch. It has a date window at the 3 o’clock position and is available in a wide range of metals and finishes. The first Datejusts came primarily in gold, however, they also came as steel versions. The Rolex Day-Date, introduced in 1956, is the most luxurious watch. It is available in gold, platinum, and other precious metals and is one of the most prestigious watch lines in the world.
Rolex sports watches
Rolex has produced several sports watches. The Rolex Daytona, introduced in 1963, is a racing-inspired watch with a chronograph function, of which the best-known versions are the Rolex “Paul Newman” Cosmograph Daytona and the Zenith Daytonas. The Rolex Explorer I and Explorer II are designed for adventure and exploration. They are rugged and water resistant. The Rolex GMT Master I and II are designed for travelers. They have a dual time zone function that allows the wearer to monitor two time zones simultaneously. These watches were widely used by pilots because they often stay in multiple time zones for a short period.
Finally, there is the Rolex Submariner, this is a diving watch that can withstand depths of up to 1,000 feet (300 meters) and is perhaps the most iconic watch on earth. Read more about the history of the Rolex Submariner here.
Rolex Oyster case
How Rolex models have evolved into the most classic and recognizable timepieces that can grace a wrist has mainly to do with the way they were produced. The Oyster case is the key element of Rolex’s success. This waterproof case was first introduced in 1926 and has been used on many different models over the years. The Oyster case consists of three parts: the bezel, the body, and the case back. The bezel is snapped onto the body and the case back is sealed with a screw crown. This design makes the Oyster case water resistant and very durable.
