Rolex Classic Is Made Like This

As with all great undertakings, today’s glorious and extraordinary Rolex actually originated from an ordinary starting point. Hans Wilsdorf was born in 1881. In the early 20th century, an era when pocket watches were prevalent, he began to enter the Swiss watch manufacturing industry at a young age. At that time, wristwatches were only considered as jewelry favored by women with very little production, but Hans Wilsdorf firmly believed that watches were equally beautiful, precise and durable.
Mr. Hans Wilsdorf, founder of Rolex
In 1905, at the age of 24, he started a watch company in London, selling timepieces to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, and equipped the product with a small precision movement produced by a watch manufacturing company in Bill City. In 1908, he registered a trademark name for his innovative products, Rolex. The name conforms to the pronunciation conventions of all European languages ​​and can be easily printed on the surface. Hans Wilsdorf’s original vision beyond contemporary will soon be rewarded. World War I brought humanity a catastrophe, but also became the best promoter of watch popularity. For soldiers with heavy equipment and heavy uniforms, watches have pocket watches. With incomparable inherent advantages, Rolex quickly became one of the most important watch suppliers in the UK. The first oyster watch
Precision is the only language
十年 In the first ten years of Rolex’s establishment, Wilsdorf has always insisted on sending the movement to the official quality control agency for testing, and continuously improves the reliability of the movement. In 1910, the official timepiece evaluation center in Biel granted the official certification of a precision timepiece to a Rolex watch. This was the first time that a Swiss official granted such a certification. In 1914, Rolex was awarded the Class A precision timepiece certification issued by the British Observatory. Originally only professional marine timepieces could obtain this honor. Since then, Rolex’s quality has become synonymous with precision watches, and this success has also made Rolex’s future strategy more determined to send most of the watches produced to the Observatory certification, until today, Rolex has obtained the number of watches certified Already far ahead of other competitors, it ranks first in the world.
World Time Watch
Every glory begins in Oyster
In 1926, the world’s first waterproof and dust-proof watch was born, named Oyster. The so-called oyster watch was inspired by its screw-in waterproof back cover and was completely sealed from the structure of oysters. The case provides the best protection for the movement. Oyster watches make Rolex synonymous with water resistance. The emergence of the Oyster watch itself is a challenge to the traditional watch market, and also allows the legend of the brand to begin. In 1927, the Oyster watch accompanied the young British female swimmer Mercedes Gillies across the English Channel and remained safe and accurate. Since then, the prelude to close collaboration between Rolex and outstanding individuals has been unveiled. The combination of sports adventure activities and propaganda activities is also known as the most successful marketing method of the last century.
The first Datejust watch
Innovation and function go hand in hand
In the 1930s, when other watch factories were still experimenting with automatic winding mechanisms, Rolex was able to mass-produce its technology developed for many years. In 1931, it successfully launched other Rolex Oyster automatic winding watches. Most of the automatic watches in the world today have actually adopted this technology from Rolex. In 1956, the Day-Date was introduced. This was the world’s first watch with full date and day information. In the decades of the post-Hans Wilsdorf era, even after experiencing the impact of quartz and electronic timing technology, Rolex has always adhered to the development of mechanical timing. In the early 1950s, with perfect precision timing and excellent waterproof performance, Rolex developed The professional watch series has far more functions than simple chronograph.
 Permanent classic details
In recent decades, Rolex models have not changed much in shape and style. Therefore, they have been criticized for keeping abreast with the status quo. A series of intertwined tales of inspiration, characters and events are circulating. Even though consumers may not be able to tell at a glance that Rolex’s continuous improvement in accuracy and practicality, but look at the numerous classic designs that have been used by the times, such as oyster cases, Mercedes-style hands, two places The time display, waterproof performance, helium vent valve and unidirectional rotatable chronograph outer ring design, and those seemingly bland bezels, calendars, and second hand movement design have become the best details praised by Rolex, even if By today’s watchmaking standards, it is a classic century. Rolex’s introverted watchmaking attitude is a testament to the minimalist design concept of less is more.
This classic story has a clever combination of tradition, honor and technology, an eternal glorious chapter, a journey of excellence, a cohesion of wisdom and innovation, and a relentless spirit of perfection.
The classics are identified like this
Classic Features 1. The fluorescent spot at 12 o’clock must be warm and smooth as jade. The shape of the oyster shell has been tested for more than half a century and has become a classic and timeless, especially the fluorescent dot at 12 o’clock, which is extremely gentle and smooth, like a pearl. It appears in the diving watch series. Become one of the most important details.
Classic features 2. There are special rules for the second hand to follow. To put it simply, during the operation of the watch, you should see that the round key at the tail of the second hand just passes the center point of the “Benz” hour hand. This seemingly inadvertent “small design” can actually show Great brand skills and rigorous attitude.
Classic features 3. Rolex’s calendar font is different from conventional designs. Whether it’s Day-Date or Submariner, calendar fonts are extremely distinctive, and the two numbers that are most easily distinguished are 1 and 4. In the ‘Rolex System’, the ‘1’ displayed is very similar to the English letter ‘I’, and the top corner of the ‘4’ is flat.
