Image Rolex watches have become an attribute of governmental officials, movie and sports stars. Fidel Castro, Charles de Gaulle, Winston Churchill, Richard Nixon, General Eisenhower, who represent a political elite, preferred to wear the watches of this brand, which has its own history which was started by Hans Wilsdorf in 1905. Together with Alfred Davis he founded a company in London that was gathering and selling pocket watches. But Hans has already realized then that wrist watches are the thing of the future, besides it is necessary to bid on the quality of the mechanism and status design. And in 5 years already the company produces the first world wrist watches, which were awarded with the highest Swiss certificate of chronometrical accuracy. Since that time the sales of Rolex watches for men were performed not only in England, but behind its borders as well and the brand constantly confirms that its priority is not only luxurious look of the chronometers with dials topped with the golden crown, but their accuracy too. Firstly, the price for original men watches Rolex was comparatively not high.
Having moved to Geneva the company has developed the first world’s waterproof watch: it was released in 1926 and called Oyster (oyster) making analogue with the waterproofness of shells. The brand has proved by this fact that it represents not only a luxurious image, but also an incredibly reliable and accurate chronometer, and to buy genuine Rolex for men is equal to becoming a part of elite. Apart from this the company has made much for the development of watch-making. The development of the first world watch that can change date and then day of week automatically belongs to it. What price the excellent incessant powerful testing during 15 days including checks for condensation and pressure trials? The British expedition of the Everest climbers was equipped with the brand watches in 1953 and they showed themselves in the best light. And in 1960 the watches were dowsed to the depth of more than 1 kilometer – they were mounted to the US Navy submarine and it did not absolutely influence a perfect work of their mechanism and outside adornment.
Today the brand produces 2000 watches per day, but all the same, people, who wish to buy original men Rolex for a loyal price, have to be added to the queue list. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona collection is especially popular being named after the motorway with the same name, where world’s famous races are traditionally held and the company is their sponsor and timekeeper.

They are created in 3 variants: of gold, steel and combination of these two metals, recently the models with diamonds have appeared.
Since the middle of the last century the company produces Day-Date watches – the first world’s watch demonstrating not only the date under the lens, but also day of week fully written at the place of the numeral “12”. They have a function of the momentous set and correction of time and date. Oyster case is waterproof, made of gold or steel with the increased content of nickel and chrome that makes the metal even more resistant to wearing out or salty water influence. Late Day-Date II 41mm Platinum model appears, where there is a version made of platinum. “Presidential strap” was developed especially for Day-Date, though “oyster strap” with a special type lock looks wonderful with this watch.
