Rolex SA is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer based in Geneva, Switzerland. Originally founded as Wilsdorf and Davis by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905, the company registered Rolex as the brand name of its watches in 1908 and became Rolex Watch Co. Ltd. in 1915. In 1926, the creation by Rolex of the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch marked a major step forward. Given the name “Oyster”, this watch featured a hermetically sealed case which provided optimal protection for the movement. The year 1945 saw the birth of the Datejust, the first self‑winding wrist chronometer to indicate the date in a window on the dial. A watch of great distinction, the Datejust was equipped with a Jubilee bracelet created specially for it and a fluted bezel, making it immediately recognisable as a Rolex. It is the pillar of the Oyster collection. Initially for men, it became available in various models for women in the course of the following decade. Most important to Rolex, is that 904L steel, when worked properly, is able to take (and hold) polishes incredibly well. … So even though 904L steel is better than 316L steel for watches, it is more expensive, requires special tools and skills, and is overall more difficult to work with. Rolexes have this superpower because they’re so popular and in such high demand, especially certain models like Daytonas, they stand as investments rather than purchases. Popular Rolex watch models include Submariner, GMT, Datejust, Day Date or President, Explorer, Cellini, Milgauss, Pearl Master, Sea Dweller, Deep Sea, Sky Dweller among others.
