The world-wide known Rolex company began its ascent of Olympus not at easy times, when wars were breaking off in the countries and pocket watches were considered to be an accessory only for thin female wrists. The founder of the company is Gans Wilsdorf from Germany, whose family has never had any reference to watch production and he considered it only a business. When a young entrepreneur finished school and applied for a job in the big company, one of his friends made him a very profitable offer, which presented him with the world of chronographs, which he had never left.
In 1903 Gans moved to London, where he founded a company, which imported Swiss watches. Wilsdorf’s business was entitled Wilsdorf&Devis at that time, it was W&D abbreviation that was applied to the Swiss watches. The firm became more than just successful, but the businessman was so interested in watchmaking that decided to open his own manufacture and in 1905 Gans’s company began to produce wrist watches. In 1906 the models of his watches carried the palm in sales in England. One thought crossed the mind of the company founder, his creation must have a loud-spoken, remembering and fitting the watch case name; the name Rolex has appeared so, but it was registered only in 1915.
1910 was a watershed year for the company, when the mechanism developed by hard work received a certificate of chronometer, which seemed unreal for wrist watches. In 1914 the brand was awarded with one more certificate – for high accuracy of the watch mechanism. This achievement has increased the sales of this brand even more and many people wished to buy Rolex watches for a low price, which ascended the company to a new level. World War I raised original wrist Rolex watches, the models of the company became popular among soldiers and the overwhelming majority of menfolk, then Wilsdorf started thinking how to improve his creation. It occurred to him that they must be waterproof. When the first model of such watches appeared in the world, it required advertisement as nobody could believe such a miracle. So genuine Rolex watches were sent into the travel across the English Channel and withstood the test of environment.
After the end of the war and till the death of successful master the company was “attacking” itself creating new and more perfect models. Gans Wilsdorf bequeathed his brand to the trust fund, which acted as a guarantor of his heirs’ interests.
