The History of Rolex Watches

ROLEX. For decades, the name has been synonymous with precision, elegance, and class. It is the fitting punctuation mark at the end of any successful career, the memento that is passed down from grandfather to father to son, and the only piece of jewelry to rival the engagement ring. Sprung from the imagination of Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in 1908, Rolex is regarded as the status symbol, a breathtaking display of prestige and power.

Rolex Craftsmanship

These handcrafted Swiss timepieces, featuring the bejeweled face and the second hand that unmistakably sweeps without ever ticking, embody exquisite craftsmanship. More than a watch, the Rolex is a long-term investment that will last decades and is known to appreciate in price over time.

About The Rolex Watch Collection

The Rolex brand currently produces about a dozen different Oyster Perpetual watch models. Among the most timeless of the available models are:

  • Rolex Submariner (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner. Originally designed for diving and boasting an impressive maximum submergible depth of 300 meters, the Submariner can be found on 007's wrist in 11 James Bond movies.

  • Rolex President (+)

    The Rolex President. Also known as "El Presidente," this is the Day-Date model – which was the first to display the day and date in its entirety – customized with The President bracelet. Named for its first recipient, President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

  • Rolex Date (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date GMT Master. Designed in collaboration with Pan Am Airlines to be used by pilots and navigators, this model displays two time zones at once. Before the days of GPS, an accurate GMT source was a must for aviation planning, weather forecasts, and scheduling.

  • Rolex Sea-Dweller (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Sea-Dweller. This line of watches, designed with professional divers in mind, is the most water resistant mechanical watch on the market. Director James Cameron affixed one to the DSV Deepsea Challenger as it made its dive into the deepest point of any ocean.

  • Rolex Cellini (+)

    The Rolex Cellini. Named for Benvenuto Cellini, a goldsmith and papal sculptor during the Italian Renasissance, this watch is a true classic. This perfect dress watch, which embodies nobility and elegance, is available in three different versions, Cellini Date, Cellini Time, and Cellini Dual Time.

  • Rolex Daytona (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. The archetype of the sport watch for racing drivers. The late legend Paul Newman received it as a gift from his wife in 1972 and would go on to wear it every day until his passing in 2008.

  • Rolex Datejust (+)

    The Rolex Perpetual DateJust. The first wristwatch to feature a date function, this model served as the basis for the Submariner. Chuck Yeager was wearing the Perpetual Date-Just when he broke the sound barrier in 1947.

  • Rolex GMT-Master (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date GMT Master. Designed in collaboration with Pan Am Airlines to be used by pilots and navigators, this model displays two time zones at once. Before the days of GPS, an accurate GMT source was a must for aviation planning, weather forecasts, and scheduling.

  • Rolex Milgauss (+)

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss. This line of watches was designed as an antimagnetic watch for those who work in places where electromagnetic fields disrupt the timing mechanism of a watch, like research labs and power plants. From the Latin words mille and gauss, this watch can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss.

  • Rolex Air-King (+)

    The Rolex Air King. One of the longest continuously manufactured Rolex models – and among the most affordable – the manually-wound “Warrior Watch” was created by Wildorf to be used by the British Royal Air Force during the 1930s. Senator John McCain still proudly wears an Air King.

  • Rolex Yacht-master (+)

    The Rolex Yacht-Master. First released in 1992, this line of sport watches is available in a lady’s model and is notable for being the first instance of Rolex releasing a man’s model with smaller dimensions.

  • Rolex Sky-Dweller (+)

    The Rolex Sky-Dweller. Rolex released the Sky-Dweller in 2012. This line of watches is the first to offer both dual time zones and an annual calendar. The calendar only needs to be reset every fourth year to accommodate Leap Year.

The Making of a Perfect Luxury Watch

Rolex brand watches are typically made of stainless steel, but many styles offer more luxurious metals, like 18k yellow and white gold and even rose gold. There is also a line of two tone (stainless and gold) models available as well. Rolex refers to this combination of metal as Rolesor.  Bezel and dial colors can include black, blue, green, white, and silver among others. 

Men’s watches range in size from 34mm to 45mm, depending on the style. Like their makeup, Rolex watches also range in price. Depending on the materials used (such as diamonds, gold, etc), year the watch was made, its model and its rarity, a Rolex could sell for as little as a few thousand dollars to over $1.2 million for some rare vintage models

COMMON ROLEX QUESTIONS 

While Rolex is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable brands in the world, they are notoriously tight-lipped. Naturally, many people have questions about Rolex watches and have a hard time finding reputable sources of information. We have spent years researching everything there is to know about the legendary Swiss brand, and we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about Rolex. 

  • HOW MUCH IS A ROLEX WATCH? (+)

    The price of a Rolex watch can vary greatly depending on the specific model, the metals/materials used in its construction, the overall condition of the timepiece (and its box/accessories), and whether the watch is being sold as pre-owned or brand-new. Certain used Rolex watches can be purchased for as little as a few thousand dollars; however others sell for hundreds of thousands – sometimes even millions of dollars, and represent some of the most expensive wristwatches in the world.

  • HOW MUCH IS THE CHEAPEST ROLEX? (+)

    Prices for brand-new Rolex watches start out at $4,850 for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual: the smallest and least expensive ladies model. Prices quickly increase from there depending on size, model, materials, and additional features/complications.

    For used Rolex watches, pricing can be a bit more ambiguous; however since Rolex is one of the most well known luxury brands on this planet, it is highly unlikely that anyone will ever come across a genuine Rolex watch being sold for only a few hundred dollars. Additionally, not all used Rolex watches are sold in proper working order; and in many instances, it is the watches being sold for the cheapest prices that often require the most expensive repairs. Below, you'll find a list of the least expensive watches in the Rolex catalogue:

    - Rolex Oyster Perpetual 26mm: $4,850
    - Rolex Oyster Perpetual 31mm: $4,950
    - Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34mm: $5,050
    - Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36mm: $5,400
    - Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39mm: $5,700
    - Rolex Lady-Datejust 31mm: $6,200
    - Rolex Air-King: $6,200
    - Rolex Lady-Datejust 28mm: $6,300
    - Rolex Date 34mm: $6,300
    - Rolex Explorer: $6,550
    - Rolex Datejust 36mm: $6,600

  • HOW MUCH IS A USED ROLEX? (+)

    Much like brand-new watches, the price of used Rolex watches can vary greatly depending on the specific model, its materials, and the overall condition of the timepiece itself. It is also worth noting that used Rolex watches can often sell for significantly more than brand-new ones due to their age, rarity, and overall desirability. Additionally, it is not uncommon for certain pre-owned Rolex watches, which are still currently in production, to sell for more than brand-new examples, simply due to an overwhelming demand and the existence of multi-year-long waitlists at authorized retailers.

  • IS A ROLEX WATCH A GOOD INVESTMENT? / DO THEY HOLD THEIR VALUE? (+)

    Rolex watches can retain their value better than comparable timepieces from almost any other manufacturer. This characteristic allows them to serve as functional investments that can be worn and used every single day. Nearly all Rolex watches are able to hold their value reasonably well; however certain models have the ability to appreciate if given enough time and/or the right market conditions. Additionally, even when a Rolex watch is old and damaged, it will always be worth something, since it can always be repaired or (at the very least) used for its salvageable components.

  • WHAT IS A CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED ROLEX? (+)

    A certified pre-owned Rolex is a used Rolex watch that has been professionally inspected by a third-party certification service for both condition and authenticity. Certified pre-owned Rolex watches are issued a report, which attests to their originality/authenticity, and details the condition of the watch’s most important components. In order to be certified, each Rolex watch must go through a comprehensive process that consists of rigorous criteria and meticulously performed procedures.Certified pre-owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and every Rolex sold by Bob’s Watches comes with an optional and independent third-party certification report issued by WatchCSA, the leading authority on timepiece certification.

  • ARE ALL ROLEX WATCHES MADE FROM REAL GOLD? (+)

    The short answer is no. Although Rolex makes some of the finest and most expensive watches in the world, many of their most famous and desirable offerings are constructed from their patented 904L stainless steel, while others are made from solid 950 platinum. On modern Rolex watches, any components that appear to be gold are actually constructed from solid 18k gold; however many years ago, Rolex did manufacture watches that were made from stainless steel and covered with gold caps/shells on their outer surfaces to give them the appearance of having an all-gold construction.
