The Rolex brand was founded by Alfred Davis and Hans Wilsdorf in 1905. It is one of the largest single luxury brand of watch that produces about 2,000 watches per day. Due to this feat, the company was ranked at 72nd place on Forbes 2014 list of the most powerful global brands. Rolex has been a popular brand ever since, and you can’t talk about watches without mentioning its name.
The company is known for its many contributions to the watch industry, including the “Oyster,” in 1926, which was considered the first waterproof wristwatch. Just a few years ago, the company has also come up with the first wristwatch that features a multiple function command bezel. Rolex continues to create some of the world’s best watches today, timepieces that have been tested to the extremes and will forever leave a mark in the watchmaking world.
