Rolex History


Rolex was founded in London in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis under the name Wilsdorf and Davis. Shortly after the company relocated to Geneva in 1919 and trademarked their iconic Rolex logo in 1925. With a desire to perform better than its competitors, Rolex is considered one of the most elite and precise watch brands in the world. In 1910, one of their watches became the first ever to receive the Swiss Certificate of Precision. Then, in 1914 Rolex was awarded a class ‘A’ precision certificate from Kew Observatory, an award that was previously reserved only for marine chronometers.

Few other watchmakers have developed pieces with such timeless appeal. Rolex watches are coveted the world over and the brand’s timepieces have always embodied the virtues of quality, elegance and endurance since Rolex was first established at the turn of the 20th century. 

With a series of innovations under the brand’s belt including the Daytona, Submariner, GMT-Master II, Datejust, Day-Date, Pearlmaster, Yacht-Master, Sea Dweller, Sky-Dweller and so much more, Rolex has changed the world of Horology forever. When you wear a Rolex watch, you know that you’re wearing a unique piece of history.

The level of detail within each Rolex watch is truly exquisite and the brand is synonymous with luxury, quality, craftsmanship and style. Having used only the finest raw materials during the manufacturing process, Rolex has ensured that each and every component within its designs are produced to an exceptional standard. 

So much more than a luxury fashion brand, Rolex produces some of the most timeless watches in the world that can only ever be dreamed of by other watch manufacturers. Priding themselves on precision and prestige, Rolex will always be iconic.
