Rolex, the mere mention of the name takes us to the world of luxurious and dependable watches. Touted to be one of the most valuable brands in the world, Rolex was founded in 1905 by Alfred Davis and Hans Wilsdorf. Driven totally by their passion, the brand has set a benchmark in the world of horology. The Oyster wristwatch, the Datejust, the Submariner, the Day-Date are some of the most popular and revolutionary watches of all time. A favourite amongst entrepreneurs, celebrities and the most influential people in the world, Rolex is the only watch brand that produces 2,000 watches every day. The company is now owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation.
With umpteen useful features and a Triplock winding crown that ensures water resistance to the depths of 1,000 feet, this is truly a watch lover’s treasure
The exclusivity offered by Rolex makes the brand all the more prestigious. The Reader’s Digest once published an interesting story about Rolex that left many in awe. Back in the mid-90s, a murdered “John Doe” was recognised and brought to justice, all thanks to his Rolex. Each Rolex comes with an exclusive serial number and it was his Rolex that eventually helped the police to zero in on the owner’s identity and helped solve his case. Pretty darn amazing!
