Since the inception of Rolex in 1905, courtesy of Hans Wilsdorf, the valuable timepiece has held a high place in many people’s eyes. The London made piece of luxury faced the same difficulty in it’s origins as all wristwatches; keeping a reliable time. However, by 1910 Rolex became the first producer of a wristwatch to receive the highly esteemed Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision by the Official Watch Rating Center located in Bienne, Switzerland. With continued success at the highest level in the watchmaking industry, in 1920 Rolex moved their headquarters to Geneva; The Swiss city known and respected internationally as the leading watchmaking city of the world. Soon following, Rolex became the first watch to be waterproof in 1927, and the first watch to offer a self-winding mechanism with a perpetual motor in 1931, which has become the standard in all great watches today. The innovations continued, as in 1945 Rolex introduced the first self-winding wristwatch that displayed the current date on a dial, then in 1956 introduced a spot that clearly displays the day of the week as well. With these incredible innovations spanning over a century, Rolex has always and will always be at the forefront of wristwatch luxury, technology, and, creativity.
