Rolex journey stretches back to 1905 and is closely linked to founder Hans Wilsdorf’s pioneer and visionary spirit. After the invention of the first wristwatch, the company became a forerunner in the industry of time. With the introduction of Oyster -the first waterproof case- and the development of a self-winding mechanical movement (Perpetual), the brand made its way to global markets.
Since then, Rolex watches have been manufactured and meticulously assembled with the best materials. The brand masters in-house the entire production process for its components.
