Find Out More About Rolex Watches

Rolex is possibly the best-known brand name in the jewellery business and owning one of these watches is a dream for many people. The more you know about the jewellery you invest in, the more you can appreciate it:

  • The first wristwatch – Rolex owes its initial innovation to Hans Wilsdorf, a watchmaker who began in the business when pocket watches were all the style. Deciding that a watch worn on the wrist would be more useful, Wilsdorf had to convince people that a precise-enough movement could be made in order for the watch to be marketable. He did, and the wristwatch was born.
  • Class ‘A’ precision – in 1914, the Rolex watch movement was the first to be awarded a Class ‘A’ precision certificate – something previously only given to precise marine instruments. Rolex has continued to ensure that its movements are the epitome of precision.
  • Patent protected – inventors always take the time to ensure that new methods of working are patented if possible, and Rolex is no exception. Since 1931, the company has held the patent for the original self-winding movement, eliminating the need for constant hand-winding by the wearer.
