Rolex Luxury Watches
Every Rolex tells a story.
Rolex, founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred David in London, England, was first known as Wilsdorf and Alfred before they became the iconic brand known to be Rolex. Rolex has contributed to the history of watchmaking with incredible innovations during its time.
The brand was inspired to design quality durable wristwatches to meet and exceed the demands of explorers and adventurers that accompany them on their expeditions from land to sea. A few of their professional model’s line, designed for specific activities, include the Submariner, Daytona, Explorer, Oyster Perpetual, and the Datejust.
To further dive into a few of those models, - The Rolex Submariner has been one of the most iconic divers’ watches since 1953. Its functional design has evolved over the years with a redesigned Oyster case and distinctive features – this line is best known for its resistance to water and corrosion.
The Rolex Daytona features the ultimate chronograph and bezel with tachymetric scale – geared towards the Professional race car drivers. The Rolex Daytona’s self-winding chronometer with chronograph functions measure average speeds up to 400 miles per hour has been an impressive timepiece.
The Rolex Explorer embodies the capabilities to withstand low temperatures, high altitudes and extreme conditions during adventurous journeys and travels. In 1953, Rolex was one of the sponsors of the Everest Expedition that year, they provided Sir Edmund Hillary with the Oyster Perpetual Chronometer at the time for testing purposes - in which he conquered Mount Everest with that very Oyster watch. To mark the occasion, the Explorer was coined to dedicate to the launch of the Explorer collection. The original watch was returned back to Rolex to perform additional testing. Over the past decades, Rolex continues to improve and include the best of their innovations to each timepiece.
The Oyster Perpetual watch is a legend itself and to go back in time when Han’s invented the first waterproof case in 1926, he named this style after an “Oyster” because it was very difficult to open. Later in 1933, the term Perpetual was added to the name to symbolize being the first automatic self-winding watch. The Oyster Perpetual series comes in many models such as the Gold Oyster Perpetual Datejust or Oyster perpetual submariner.
On to a more modern yet classic timepiece, both the Datejust and Day Date make great additions to add to any style. During its launch in 1945, the Rolex Datejust adds to the innovation to be the first wristwatch to be able to change date functions automatically. From there, Rolex proceeded to create a watch that can also display the day and date of the week located in a window on the dial which became the Rolex Day-Date line. These models showcase four different types of materials - choose between platinum, oyster steel, gold, or a blend of both oyster steel and gold - gold watches also come in different tones which can be selected by preference.
When it comes to choosing Rolex watches for men, there are plenty to select from that fit each individual's’ personality and lifestyle and the same applies for women’s Rolex watches as well. For beginners, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual makes a great entry-level collection to start.
