Since 1908, since HansWilsdorf registered the trademark ROLEX in LaChauxdeFonds, Switzerland, after more than 100 years of active progress, Rolex’s countless achievements are the loudest gold-signs in the watch industry today. In short, these achievements include: the creation of the Oyster in 1926 with a closed case, the world’s first water-resistant and dust-proof watch, which made watchmaking technology a step forward. Before; In 1931, the world’s first patented automatic winding mechanism, Perpetual, was developed, which became the basic design of every modern automatic watch; in 1945, it was the first oyster in the world to automatically display the date with a magnified window. Automatic Datewatch; Day-Date was released in 1956, and a second enlarged day window was added to the surface to automatically display the day of the week.
Since the 1950s, Rolex has developed a series of professional watches with more than pure chronograph functions, relying on its full grasp of the precision and water resistance of precision timepieces. Including the well-known ExplorerI, ExplorerII, GMT-Master, Submariner, Sea-Dweller, Deepsea, Daytona and Yacht-Master, these watches are designed for professional activities, including deep-sea diving, aviation, mountain climbing and scientific exploration. Supported by outstanding people.
Powerful and practical professional watch
Of course, some critics have criticized them for staying true to the status quo because Rolex’s watch models and styles have not changed much in recent decades. But in fact, it has something to do with Rolex’s unwavering watchmaking philosophy since its founding. Rolex has always been proud of the two benchmarks of ‘pursuing precision’ and ‘practicalness.’ Perseverance has prompted Rolex to focus on improving the robust structure and reliability of chronograph performance, and never blindly change for change.
Rolex’s current models have not changed much, and they have rarely introduced some works that can be called imaginary styles. However, even consumers may not be able to tell at a glance that Rolex’s accuracy and practicality have been continuously improved. The picture shows the Yacht-Master model 116622.

Rolex’s introverted watchmaking attitude is a testament to the minimalist design philosophy of Thelessismore in Western proverbs.
