With the holiday season coming to a close soon, here are some top choices of Rolex watches for men you might be interested in. It’s a brand of elegance and style, providing accessories for the finest tastes to delight in. However, Rolex watches are part of a larger narrative, one that puts reliability and innovation above all else. We start with their story.
Every Rolex Tells a Story
Since the early 1900’s, Rolex watches have been the standard of luxury wristwatches. Founded by Hans Wilsdorf in 1905, the Rolex brand has never compromised reliability for elegance. Even though Wilsdorf’s work on Rolex watches started in 1905, it would take three years for the young entrepreneur to actually come up with the name.
Within 5 years of starting the now iconic brand, the accolades began rolling in. In fact, the Rolex was the first wristwatch in history to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision. It doesn’t stop there. Rolex watches are not only pioneers in reliability but also innovation. In 1926, the Rolex Oyster was the first waterproof and dustproof watch. In 1931, Rolex patented the first self-winding mechanism with a Perpetual rotor, a system still used in these modern times.
The Rolex was on the wrist of Sir Malcolm Campbell when he broke the world speed record. The Rolex was the first wristwatch to offer a self-winding Datejust. Over a hundred years later, the Rolex brand continues to expand and innovate.
Best Rolex Watches Available
Rolex has a deep (pun not intended) history with divers. In 1953, the Submariner was introduced as the first diver’s watch to reach a depth of 300 feet. Also included were a rotatable bezel that allowed divers to read their immersion time. Over 60 years later the Rolex Submariner is still a force to be reckoned with. Today’s Submariner comes in white gold, yellow gold, steel and a combination of steel and yellow gold. Large luminescent hour markers make them easy to read and they also come with the option of the Datejust.
The Rolex Daytona was originally launched in 1963 under the name Cosmograph. The Cosmograph was created with endurance race drivers in mind. As soon as they got their hands on them, the name Daytona was added on the end. The original Daytona had a tachymetric scale on the bezel for calculating average speed. Today’s Daytona can measure average speeds up to 400 miles per hour perfectly. The Daytona comes in white gold, yellow gold, steel, Everose gold and a combination of steel and yellow gold. It is also waterproof and dustproof.

The Price of Elegance and Reliability
There is no eloquent way to put it, Rolex prices are high, as they should be. You are not just buying a watch. If a watch is all you want, you can buy one at a convenient store. If you want the very best, if you can afford the very best, then you deserve the very best.
Rolex watches are the very best. They are an investment and they are a symbol of success. No other brand retains its value better than Rolex. Even James Bond himself chose a Rolex! Not everyone is or can be in the market for a Rolex, but that’s okay. One day you will be, and on that day the price of a superior Rolex watch is one you’ll gladly pay.
Every Rolex tells a story. No other brand of wristwatches can say that. Rolex watches have been passed down as heirlooms, given as gifts, symbolized success milestones and have represented countless other moments in one’s life. If you’re in the market for a Rolex watch for yourself or that special guy in your life, what will your story be?
Concluding – A Story Begins
No doubt it’ll be unique to you and forever tied to the Rolex brand. Whether you’re looking to make a fashion statement, deep sea diving, race car driving, scientific work, aviation or trek some of the most remote destinations on this planet, Rolex watches will be there. In fact, they’ve always been there, blazing new trails since the beginning.
In 1905, a young man named Hans Wilsdorf had a vision of a wristwatch that was not only elegant but reliable. He never wavered or compromised those two core beliefs, and to this day the Rolex brand has still held true to those two core values. No other brand is more respected nor maintains its high value after purchase. For more information on becoming part of the diverse Rolex family, head over to www.rolex.com and begin your story.
