Rolex watches are highly revered. It is a symbol of style and luxury, which was founded in the year 1908 in Germany by Hans Wilsdorf. During this time, pocket watches were most commonly produced by Swiss watch manufacturers because technology for miniature fittings were not yet perfected and accurate. Wilsdorf, a perfectionist, has enhanced the standards hence the development of smaller and accurate movements. This marked the transition from bulky watches to smaller timepieces for the wrist.

Delving Deep into the Legacy

The School of Horology based in Switzerland had given the company an award for being the first wristwatch with chronometer rating in the world. This particular award – Chronometer Award – emphasized the accuracy and so Wilsdorf focused in enhancing the reliability of the timepieces. This lead to the development of waterproof watch called the Oyster.

The Collection

Since the early days, Rolex has been consistent in their production of top quality watches, which continues today. The Prince was introduced in 1928 that features dual dial and rectangular case. Rotor followed in 1931, which features the semicircular plate moving by means of gravity.

In 1960s, Rolex introduced a manual-wound watch made from stainless steel for Paul Newman called Cosmograph Daytona that featured flashy dial but it did not grab its expected success. By 1980s, a new interest for the watch developed and was re-launched hence the updated Daytona was released in 1991.
