About Mens Rolex Watches

The motto of Rolex is ?Timeless Luxury? and their watches are certainly luxurious. Rolex was founded in London in 1905 by Hans Wildorf; Hans sought an accurate timepiece that could be worn on the wrist. He enlisted the services of a Swiss watchmaking company and equipped his wrist watches with small, very precise movements to enhance their accuracy. In 1910 one of Hans? Rolex watches was the first wristwatch in the world to receive the prestigious Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, and four years later he received an ?A? class rating for precision. This impeccable precision and quality is what makes Rolex the brand that it is today. Rolex have never stopped developing their watches; they pride themselves on their pioneering spirit and have created a lifetime of ?firsts? including the first waterproof watch and the first watch to display the date on a dial on the watch face. Today their oyster cases are made from steel, gold or platinum and are guaranteed waterproof to a depth of at least 100 metres and even up to 3,900 metres for the Rolex Deepsea. The faces of Rolex watches are made from synthetic sapphire crystal and are virtually scratchproof. For those who are interested in the aesthetic appeal of a men's Rolex watch, they are available with a variety of different coloured and styled bezels. The fluted bezel is a signature Rolex feature and is only available on the most luxurious gold models ? it is a true mark of distinction.
