The founding year: The 1908 founder: The Hans ウイルスドルフ birthplace, a district: Switzerland
Rolex is a brand having the head office as a pronoun of the high-quality clock in Switzerland Geneva. Founder Hans ウイルスドルフ starts the production of the watch and registers a trademark of the name of "Rolex" in 1908. It is honest and works on technology development, and the superior mechanism called "three greatest inventions of the Renaissance of Rolex" is still born in sequence. In 1926, I develop a world's first complete waterproofing "oyster" case. With the solid case which this began to reduce a lump of metal, and was made, I realized unprecedented waterproofing performance. In 1931, I announce self-winding watch rotor "パーペチュアル". There is only a rolling by hand clock and knows it till then how this self-winding watch function is grand invention. In 1945, I announce the "date just" that a date turns into instantly after 24:00 mechanism. In spite of being this technology development going away, one Rolex builds up one clock carefully and is known for a more conscientious thing maintaining and continues being loved all over the world now.
"The date just function" that a date changes in an instant after 0:00 a.m. acquires the patent for celebrity. The first clock which was equipped with an "oyster case" "パーペチュアル function" "date just function" at the same time. The case is used for a lot of noble metals such as white gold and yellow gold, the pink gold other than stainless steel. The variation of the clockface is seen in a bar type, a Roman numeral type, a type with diamond much, too, and there is the combination of material and clockfaces more than 100 kinds.
■The product details
It is the luxurious date just that put the same pink gold together in an oyster case, a bezel, the oyster bracelet of three links to pink gold & black dial. The world's first mechanism that Rolex is proud of the date just function to be replaced by instantly at the midnight in a little time of several-1000ths second. Furthermore, the rhinoceros crop lens adopted in the small window of the position at 3:00 is one of the characteristics on behalf of Rolex and I enlarge a date to 2.5 times and raise visibility. It is a charisma and one full of the dignity that I am refined, and the classical history is fragrant in the modern design.
