This is a free world , you can love can hate anyone or anything . Of course, I now say just a little research , perhaps by the most ardent critics Rolex (or love to use those ) of. In this case , should be innocuous little tolerance , let us look at some of the facts according to their own feelings and get their own point of view.
1 , For all intents and purposes , is the invention of the Rolex watch , as we know, can be determined in the Rolex 1905 several companies launched prior to manufacture and sell watches the same things , but they do not try to Rolex made to meet the new market , because some older companies have no reason to change the design , they will watch the major funds are used for the production of design. Rolex itself is nothing, no history, no factories , but more importantly , there is no (tab ) tradition, so they can do is to be the only one inventor , so they invented the watch.
2, Rolex is no doubt invented the waterproof watch, and make it their strength , they are not the originator of the concept of Ningbo water were , but they while filling this possible. Screws to be simple in the classic, and Wilsdorf genius of this simple concept into the market.
3, Said self-winding movement , Rolex saw the market demands and see the mistakes of their predecessors and smarts to avoid the same mistake that many other manufacturers of self-winding movement , since its automatic place published Rolex Tuo on the 65th anniversary since the endless chain mechanism , but most of the Rolex automatic movement drew the design .
4 , Of course , exclude the above reasons, my view is that Rolex is the biggest advantage of the movement decided to send most of the Hong Kong Observatory certification, this certification in the Rolex before the start , all the watch factory is only talking about the accuracy of their movement , But Rolex is the first by an independent body to certify the accuracy of their movement . Before the advent of the quartz watch , accuracy is the value of the direct form factor , so people always want to know how their prospective watches – Rolex give them this protection.
5, We will form as a tool, the table is designed to meet the specific features or hobbies, like scuba diving watches, sailing sports watch , the pilot watch and so on. Yes ! Rolex invented these concepts , Submariner, GMT Master and the Milgauss is the vanguard of these concepts .
6, In the watch industry for a long time before the quiet , waterproof and anti- vibration function emerges, the Rolex sports enthusiasts to become a natural choice , since they create the table for the athletes , this is a tool to promote the progress of the type of watch a little bit . Like Explorer I and II, designed to be used for climbing and cave exploration table, they all have high-definition especially strong case dial and simple style , and, they locate a new market.
7 , Most innovative Swiss watch factory , at most only the above mentioned ideas, and always will be the Rolex as a long-term development strategy. In the Rolex 90 years of history, thousands of patents they have disdain for the altar watch .
8, Rolex watch factory in Europe is one of the few companies with most of the self-produced movement . Movement except for some time , ( since 4130 , after the movement , all movements are made Rolex – dubbed by Note) make all their own movement , case, strap and sapphire crystal glass . They have all the distribution outlets , and no other shareholder (Rolex held by the two families , and has the reputation of charitable donors .) This way they can without fear to promote their long-term planning .
9, No doubt they are the largest Swiss watch factory : the annual production of about 800,000 tables, they still only sell to each create their own table, they rely on multiple markets can indeed say : This is a list of their Oyster The world ( I’m sorry to say ).
10, I am afraid there is a problem is that they become a victim of its own success , when they did not change their design philosophy, change their public image , like Rolex movement is born with the name and the same, and is the largest output Section of the table . Many people hear the Rolex , the diamond that is the Day-Dates. Of course, this is not the fault of the company Rolex .
11, A Swiss company for any , Rolex has the longest single system. Is still family owned by the two (and their heirs .) During this period, the company initially only two executives (the third charge in 1997 ) , the above two factors ensure that the company decided to historical tradition without interruption.
12 , Many people terrified of the price of Rolex , they forget two things: First , Rolex for only their own table ( so it is apparent that some people do not think they so expensive) , and the second , no one was forced to buy a Rolex, Money should be their own decisions in their own hands . No matter what, all by the market.
13 , It is difficult not to discuss when discussing ROLEX second-hand value , a simple premise that Rolex ( new or second-hand table) to keep products in Switzerland, a very low rate of depreciation. Anywhere in the world , Rolex Submariner date from no to the president maintains strong type of second-hand price. Also, even bought a second-hand table, two to three years but also to sell the equivalent of the purchase price was , in fact, from an investment point of view, cash flow statement is obviously Rolex .
14, Reasons to buy Rolex , one of the best reasons, but certainly no one thought : it obtained by selling the table most of the profits are used for charitable purposes , as mentioned above , Rolex owned by two family trusts , the largest A (Wilsdorf family trust ) to provide a fixed amount of feedback to the fixed members of his family , but most used for charitable purposes, including Geneva, his hometown high school and watch the school . Similar grants provide an important if not part of Rolex , Franck Muller then there would be no , because he came out of the Geneva watch school.
In summary , if you want to hate Rolex, so good to hate , but at least I hope you do, at least you should be venting his complaints.
