Rolex Timeline Introductions For Models & Features

When examining a traditional Swiss made timepiece it is easy to see why these beautiful wristwatches gained popularity.  The transitional design and style of older vintage models has been a big drawl for a number of collectors. 

As a privately owned company the brand has always had a long term vision. Rolex doesn't have to answer to share holders which has been one of their strong points.  Over the years you can find the various features and model introductions by the brand.
