A brief glimpse of how Rolex came to be…
In 1905, Hans Wilsdorf set up “Wilsdorf and Davies” in London to distribute quality timepieces throughout the British Empire. To convince the public of the reliability of his timepieces, he started to equip his watches with precise movements, small enough to fit in a wristwatch’s case. In 1908, Hans Wilsdorf came up with the name “Rolex”, registered it as a brand name in Switzerland, and the company has endeavored to pursue the development of elegant and reliable wristwatches since then. Today, Rolex is a revered manufacturer of mechanical wristwatches seen on the wrists of discerning world leaders, global celebrities, and influential pioneers who made history with Rolex as their companion tool watch.

Winding up the watch, the emotions…
A perspective of the notion of a mechanical watch being ‘connected’ to its wearer adds to the appeal of having an enduring timepiece to award someone. The wearer powers a Rolex through the movement of the wrist throughout the day, and the self-winding of the Perpetual movement means that there is no need to wind a Rolex if it is worn daily), Many collectors often quipped that they wouldn’t dare sell a watch if it was gifted or inherited. They go as far as claiming that they sometimes feel the presence of their significant other, simply by putting on the watch and observing it in action, and thus highlighting its emotional, and sentimental value. Knowing that the Rolex watch you put on your wrist still keeps time just as well as when your father got it for his first promotion – it’s priceless.
