The History of Rolex Watches
Rolex’s history is linked to 24-year-old Hans Wilsdorf, who in 1905 founded a unique company in London that specialized in timepiece distribution. His dream was to create a watch you could wear on your wrist. At the time (the early 1900s), wristwatches weren’t extremely precise, but Wilsdorf had the vision that these timepieces would not only offer a luxury accessory to users, but also be a reliable method for telling time. By 1919, the Company had grown and expanded so much, it moved to Geneva, Switzerland. The growth of this luxury watch brand continued, eventually creating the household, luxury brand name that is so well-known today.
What Makes Rolex Watches So Desirable?
Today, virtually everyone (from all around the world) recognizes the brand name. It is a company synonymous with luxury, exclusive timepieces. In fact, today, wearing Rolex watch can help to define you as a person with a luxury sense of style. With a Rolex on your wrist, it shows the world you not only have exquisite taste, but also appreciate the fine craftsmanship of the best mechanical watches in the world.
Why Buy Pre-Owned Rolex Watches?
While Rolex Watches offer excellent value retention, new watches -- like new cars -- often depreciate when you take them out of the store. Purchasing a pre-owned Rolex watch allows you to avoid the depreciation of a new watch. The value will remain intact, and often rise over time. Additionally, as time continues to pass, certain models, like the Rolex Submariner, are becoming collector’s items, causing the value to skyrocket. Another reason to buy a pre-owned watch is that you have access to years’ worth of Rolex models to choose from, even those that have been discontinued and are no longer offered to buy new. WatchBox specializes in watches that are in like-new condition. When you go to a new watch dealer, you are limited to the watches that are currently in production. When you buy pre-owned Rolex, their entire history of production is at your fingertips!
