Origin: Wilsdorf, Rolex & Models
The Rolex story began when Hans Wilsdorf invented the first waterproof wristwatch. The Oyster. In 1908, the Rolex name was invented, and within a few decades it became one of the most famous brands in the world.
The entrepreneur had a vision at that time. He was very determined and wanted to make a difference in the world. When men started wearing watches on their wrists instead of in their pockets in the early 1900s, it quickly became clear that the new watches would have to withstand much harsher conditions such as rain, moisture, dust and shock. So he invented the first waterproof watch on the market.
Hans was a kind-hearted person, always ready to question himself and at the same time motivate others to bring out the best in themselves. His perfectionism helped him improve his watches and found one of the most successful companies. The name Rolex comes from the French word “horlogerie exquise”. In German it stands for watches with high quality.
The founders found the name uncomplicated, easily pronounceable in all languages, and memorable. In 1931, Rolex invented the first winding mechanism for watches. This is still the heart of such watches today. The date display in a field also goes back to a Rolex invention. In the 1950s followed the development of models for professional use. The Submariner. It guaranteed a waterproof case that lasted up to 100 meters. Also, the names of the models often symbolized the purpose of the watches and addressed the target audience. The Submariner for divers, GMT-Master for pilots, for mountaineers, explorers and discoverers the Explorer and Milgauss.
