Didn’t Always Make Watches

The Rolex company didn’t always make watches; when it started in 1905, it was a watch assembling outfit; Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis imported Swiss movements, fused them into English watch bodies and sold them to jewellers who sold them with their own logo.

It was in 1908 that the founders started make their own watches, having discovered that it was more profitable.

Some Major War Action

women’s rolex oyster perpetual date just  watches were much favoured by British Air Force officers during World War II.  They were not the only ones who liked them; the Nazis also took their Rolex whenever they shot them down.

Hans Wilsdorf, however, came to the rescue, promising to replace any Rolex watches lost by prisoners based only upon their word.

A Movie Star

The Rolex Oyster 3525 has some credit for the birth of the movie, The Great Escape, which is a well-known movie based on the story of the escape of British prisoners of war from a German POW camp during WW II. It is reported that Corporal Clive Nutting actually made use of his rolex oyster perpetual cosmograph daytona‘s precise movement to time the guards and escape with fellow prisoners.

Solid, High and Low

It has been recorded that the Rolex watches worn by Sir Edmund Hillary and some members of his team in 1953, kept working even at the top of Mount Everest.

Also, in 1960 the Rolex survived without missing a second on a US Navy bathyscape Trieste that went about 36,798 feet into the depth of theOcean at Mariana Trench. The watch endured a pressure of 14.000 psi.

Highest Quality Metal

Rolex watches are made with 904L grade metal; it is more expensive and features a higher level of nickel and chromium than 316L, which is used in making most watches.

Here’s a look at the most impressive replica Rolex watches-and current models that let you own a piece of that storied past.
Replica Datejust: Rare Functionality

For their 40th Anniversary in 1945, Rolex introduced the Datejust model. It depicts the hours and minutes with a distinctive “Cyclops” magnifying date lens added during the 1950s. While variations of the classic fashion designer replica watch change little over time, the current model is offered in “Rolesor,” an attractive combination of gold and steel unique to Rolex.

Rolex Reference 6062, from the 1950s, is a very rare exception to a brand that otherwise abstains from too many complications. One of only two Rolex models to feature a yellow gold triple calendar with a moon phase, the dusty rose and gold fake rolex for women watch is nicknamed the “Stelline” because of the fabulous star-shaped indices. The “Stelline” will be coming to auction at Phillips upcoming “Rolex Milestones” auction on November 28th in Hong Kong with an estimate of $110 – $120 and is expected to bring in much more.

The new dials feature a unique two-color (yellow and green) Air King logo, a detail that will most likely become an essential design element for future collectors years.
