Rolex was founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England. The company initially operated as Wilsdorf & Davis, but the name was changed to Rolex in 1908. The exact origin of the name is unclear, but it is believed to have been chosen because it was easy to pronounce in many languages and sounded like a watch winding.
Rolex moved its operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919, and it was in this same year that they introduced the first Rolex wristwatch with a date function, called the Rolex Oyster. The Oyster was also the first waterproof watch, and it quickly gained popularity among athletes and adventurers for its durability and reliability.
Throughout the 20th century, Rolex continued to innovate and expand its product line, introducing iconic models like the Rolex Submariner (1953), the Rolex Daytona (1963), and the Rolex GMT-Master (1954). Rolex watches were also worn by notable figures like Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr., and James Bond in the film franchise.
Today, Rolex is one of the most recognizable luxury watch brands in the world, known for its quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. The company is still headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and it remains a privately owned company. Rolex continues to innovate with new technologies and designs while maintaining its commitment to excellence and precision. Rolex watches are great investments, but do need regular service to maintain their value.
