The history of Rolex began with a business friendship between Ernst Bucherer and founder Hans Wilsdorf at the beginning of the 20th century. They considered the possibilities of positioning a watch on the wrist. When he founded his watch distribution company in London in 1905, he seemed to already know the recipe for success for his company: Always offer the best to the customer. From the very beginning, this was the motto under which he marketed high-quality timepieces manufactured in Switzerland.
In order to make his watches more recognizable, he signed them from 1908 onwards with an international and easily pronounced name: Rolex. Thanks to their shared pursuit of quality and excellence, the partnership soon proved to be a real model of success. Known for their outstanding precision, reliable water resistance and high robustness, Rolex watches have been seen on the wrists of watch connoisseurs worldwide.
Today, the watch brand is one of the most successful in the world and is the icon. One does not wear a watch but a statement, a statement of the highest quality. The watches are exclusive and are now part of successful investment opportunities, who would have thought it? The Rolex Submariner is by far the most successful and popular range. Simple and elegant but still the watch stands out with its design. Not without reason have many other brands followed the design of the Submariner.
