What makes Rolex watches so special?

Most people can agree that when they see someone wearing a Rolex, they see it as a sign of wealth, status and success. For decades Rolex has been one of the most sought after luxury watch brands with politicians, celebrities and high net worth individuals opting to adopt their watches as timepiece of choice. But why does this brand have this global reputation? 


The brand was born in London in 1905 but moved to Switzerland after the First World War. SInce then, it has gone from strength to strength. Part of the reason for this is the company’s meticulous manufacturing process. Every single part of the watch is made in-house at Rolex. They even make their own gold and platinum at an in-house foundry (one of the only watchmakers in the world to do so!). 


The brilliance of Rolex is that they are luxury, high-end watches that look good in almost all situations. Whether you are pairing your Rolex with a suit, a wetsuit or simply a t- shirt, it is sure to elevate the outfit. The design of the watches is such that their simple elegance is unrivalled in the luxury watch market. 


Part of the popularity of Rolex is that it is a luxury brand that is not unattainable. If Rolex were a car, it would be a Porsche. Everyone who puts on a Rolex knows that it is a sign of success due to the validation the rich and famous have given to the brand.


It is well known that Rolex watches rarely, unless damaged, depreciate in value. It is also for this reason that they are a popular investment for many. You can read all about the value of Rolex watches and why they make such great investments, here
