The History of Rolex Watches
Posted on December 13, 2013
Rolex is one of, if not the, most recognizable watch brands in the world today. It’s name is synonymous with luxury, quality and beauty. The history of the brand and the man behind it is as rich and interesting as the timepieces themselves.
The Rolex website offers a detailed timeline of the brand, from its humble beginnings to the world renowned watches it produces today. For any avid Rolex or luxury watch collector, it’s an interesting and worthwhile read.
Starting with the inspiring story of Hans Waldorf and moving forward…take a look at the complete history of Rolex
An excerpt from the Rolex website:
The history of Rolex is inextricably linked to the visionary spirit of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, at the age of 24, Hans Wilsdorf founded a company in London specialising in the distribution of timepieces. He began to dream of a watch worn on the wrist. Wristwatches were not very precise at the time, but Hans Wilsdorf foresaw that they could become not only elegant, but also reliable.
