Their attention to detail is unlike any other watchmaking company. Every component, every mechanism, every detail is developed in-house and according to the unwavering standards set by Rolex.
Rolex has become a global powerhouse. As a company, it is one of the world’s biggest brands and it produces up to 2000 watches each day. The company is owned by a private family trust, the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, and is estimated to be worth billions of dollars.
Founded in 1905, the company has continued to grow exponentially in the last century. The original owners were Alfred Davis and Hans Wilsdorf, and soon after founding the company, they opened an office in Switzerland, where the company is still based to this day. During the early days of the company, the watches were primarily sold to jewellers who would put their own names on the watches, but the inside of the case back was usually engraved with the initials W&D.

Like most luxury watch companies that have stood the test of time and been in the watchmaking business for as long as Rolex has, the one way that the company has managed to keep its reputation for setting the benchmark is by investing plenty of time into being innovative.
