The history of Rolex watches: the world's leading luxury watchmaker.
We cannot talk about this prestigious brand without mentioning how it all began. It all started when visionary designer Hans Wilsdorf founded the brand in 1908. At the time, his quest to design miniature waterproof models was pioneering in the world of watchmaking. Thanks to him, wrist watches were very quickly sold the world over and became synonymous with extraordinary precision and quality. This high-precision Swiss luxury watchmaking brand pursued its objective of bringing reliable and aesthetically-appealing watches to its customers.
A symbol of prestige anywhere in the world.
Beyond the high-end products it offers, Rolex is characterised above all else by a brand image inextricably linked to luxury and prestige. Over the years, Rolex has shown great imagination and know-how and offered customers products on the cutting edge of new technologies and innovation. The models known as Rolex Prince and Rolex Oyster are prime examples, with one being waterproof and the other being duo-dial.
These days, wearing a Rolex watch on your wrist can even be described as symbolic. It has become a veritable sign of both personal and professional achievement. The brand's communication is based on the notion of its products being rare, which injects a little extra myth and mystique into the whole thing. Rolex has always been good at imposing its unique identity and setting itself apart from fashion and current trends. The end result is a singular blend of traditional know-how and modernity. The label's approach is perfectly controlled and that explains its incredible success today.
