As a representation of opulence and status, every Rolex watch is the ultimate luxury timepiece that transcends time and space. Crafted with scrupulous attention to detail, every timepiece is built with true prestige and elegance and has become a hallmark of quality and precision ever since the early 1900s when the brand first debuted in England. Every component is designed, developed, and manufactured following the strictest standards. Not only is a Rolex watch an investment because of its high cost that would appreciate in value over time, but it is also a timepiece that will last you a lifetime. Bidsquare is proud to sell Rolex watches which have soared above their auction estimates.
Formed in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis - later branded under the Rolex name in 1915, the luxury watchmakers moved its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Rolex was the first watch brand to receive the coveted Swiss Certificate of Precision and later, it was awarded a class ‘A’ precision certificate from Kew Observatory, an accolade previously only awarded to marine chronometers.
Many of Rolex's innovations contributed to the success of the wristwatch, making the Swiss watchmakers one of the most prestigious and well-known brands in the luxury industry. These innovations include the iconic waterproof wristwatch, 'Oyster' - (Rolex Oyster) the world's first hermetically sealed case to protect against water and dust that continues to remain one of its most popular models, the world’s first self-winding mechanism with a Perpetual rotor for wristwatches, and the development of the quartz watch movement technology, used for the rare 'Oysterquartz' model. This was followed by Rolex Datejust and Day-Date, the first watch with the date displayed on the watch, as well as many of their watches such as the Women Rolex Watches, Mens Rolex Watches, Rolex Submariner, Explorer, and GMT-Master that continue to soar in popularity.
The company continues to manufacture high-quality innovative timepieces to this day, consistently maintaining its reputation for quality craftsmanship and precision movements. Rolex is regarded as one of the most prestigious luxury brands in the world today, and their 'Paul Newman' Rolex Daytona wristwatch currently holds the record for the highest auction price of $17.8 million for a wristwatch.
