History of Rolex

Rolex watches were born after Hans Wilsdorf, who opened a company in London in 1905, dreamed of wearing a watch on the wrist. Wristwatches weren’t too reliable at the time, so Hans sought to make his watches precise, so the public could rely on their accuracy. In 1910 it was a Rolex watch that received the first certificate of chronometric precision. As time progressed Rolexes became renowned for their accuracy. In regards to the name itself, Hans wanted to find something that was “short, easy to say and remember in any language”. He combined letters of the alphabet randomly creating new words, but Rolex was the named he eventually opted for. As they paved the way for wristwatches,  Rolex also became famed for being the first brand to create the waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926. They claimed their Oyster watch was waterproof and in 1927 a swimmer proved its claim when she swam with the watch on her wrist across the English Channel. Over the years Rolex have continued to pave the way for excellent and ground-breaking wristwatches which is why they are known today as one of the most famous watchmakers. If you’re looking for a luxury designer watch, you can’t go wrong with a Rolex. Their history, creativity and passion for their trade stands out today. Our range contains a broad range of their models from over the years, so you can find some truly remarkable gems in our selection.
