Rolex is one of the biggest names in luxury watches. Made by Swiss company Rolex SA with headquarters in Geneva, the fabled city of watch experts of the world, Rolexes have a solid reputation of being among the best watches the world has to offer. Rolex is the single largest luxury watch brand and produces about 2,000 watches per day.
The Rolex Story
The history of Rolex lies in the vision of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, Wilsdorf partnered with his brother-in-law Alfred Davis to create Rolex SA, initially based in London. Wilsdorf registered the trademark “Rolex” in 1908 and opened an office in Switzerland. According to the book The Best of Time: Rolex Wristwatches: An Unauthorized History, written by Jeffrey P. Hess and James Dowling, the name ‘Rolex’ itself was a made up word which Wilsdorf said could be easily pronounced in any language and looked good on the face of a watch.
The Rolex brand has a strong presence in many sporting events, in the equestrian, golfing, motor sporting, tennis, and yachting fields. Rolex has also supported various pursuits in the arts, cinema, architecture, science and exploration. Such partnerships have put Rolex firmly in the position of a backer of pursuits beyond the mundane; certainly, a watch for the individual who pursues the highest forms of success.
