Rolex Watches: Time to Invest

Exquisite Timepieces.. Ahead of Their Time 

Rolex watches have been an icon of ingenuity, precision and craftsmanship since the early 1900’s. It was over a hundred years ago that Rolex wristwatches designated the ultimate compass of quality and design in timepieces. Over a century of accomplishment and innovation by Rolex watch designs include chronometer certification, self-winding mechanisms, automatic time calibration and quartz movement. A name synonymous with luxury and precision, Rolex is the largest single luxury watch brand and among the 100 most valuable global brands.

Rolex Deep Sea

Founded in 1905, “Wilsdorf and Davis” began manufacturing and distributing wristwatches to jewelers in surrounding areas of London. Hans Wilsdorf and brother-in-law, Alfred Davis officially changed the trademark to “Rolex” in 1908 and opened an office in Switzerland. Rolex received the first ever Official Chronometer Certification to be awarded to a wristwatch just two years later. Becoming the first in 1910, Rolex remains the record holder today for most certified chronometer movements in wristwatches.

Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis continued breaking records with the exceptional precision of Rolex wristwatches, awarded with a Class “A” precision certificate in 1914 from The Kew Observatory in Great Britain. The flawless designs of remarkable engineering are seen as clearly today as they had been recognized on those infamous early decades of the 20th century. Rolex wristwatches are certainly standing the test of time, with continued innovation and impeccable quality.

A previously-owned Rolex watch has been revered and suggested as one of the wisest investment choices in both England and America. With retail prices for brand new models rising, there has been an increased popularity and availability of previously-owned Rolex watches. Rolex watches, particularly GMT-Master, Daytona and Submariner models have proven to maintain, and often rise in value over time.

Rolex Wristwatch

As consumers, we may never see a more fitting time to invest in a classic timepiece by Rolex. With jewelry retailers offering previously-owned Rolex watches with CW21 certification at remarkably affordable rates, it is undoubtedly time (no pun intended) to invest in a previously-owned luxury Rolex watch. The time to invest in a Rolex is at an all time high for luxury previously owned models. Raymond Lee Jewelers prides itself in being an industry leader in luxury pre-owned watches.  Located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida, Raymond Lee Jewelers can offer the best value high end watches on the web.

The Rolex Day-Date Or Is It President?- Collateral Loan

Collateral Loan

Collateral Loan

The Rolex Day-Date is one of the most popular watches in Rolex’s history. Popularized by both politicians and movie stars, the Day-Date has become a symbol of wealth and power. Now many of you may know about this watch but you may not know what to call it. President, Day-Date or Presidential?

The real name for this model is Day-Date and it was released in 1956 as a niche model. Rolex was suffering a drop in sales and the Day-Date was quietly released, not many expected it to put an end to stagnant sales. Fortunately for Rolex the Day-Date’s popularity exploded and sales rose significantly. The early models due to the complexity of the watch, with its automatic movement, additional day and date discs was a very large and had a bulbous case back. This differs quite dramatically from the slim profile we have become accustomed to today.

The nickname, President, did not come into existence until later when Rolex changed the bracelet of the Day-Date to a gold-linked bracelet with a concealed clasp the is called “the President wristband.” Rolex perhaps trying to expand recognition for this watch in the U.S, capitalized on the wristbands name and gave one to then President Dwight Eisenhower. Rolex succeeded perhaps a bit too well because here in the United States the nickname the President (Presidential would gain popularity as well) overtook its actual name. In Europe and abroad, asking for a Rolex President will get you quizzical stares since the Day-Dates’ nickname never grew as popular as it did here. Collateral Loan.

The Day-Date or President has undergone only slight changed over the years. In 1972 a hack feature was introduced which allowed the second hand to be stopped instantly. Also around this time the “Quickset” feature was introduced, this allowed the wearer to change the date by pulling the button out half way and turning it. A great improvement over the old method where the crown would have to be turned round and round in order to manipulate the date.  Besides these internal changes the President is still holds the classic beauty that originally made it a hit among consumers.

Rolex Day-Date II President Watch

Rolex Day-Date II President

Click Here to Buy!

Rolex has become one of the most successful companies in the world through innovation.  They are a leader in their industry and sell more luxury watches than anyone.  They climbed to the top of the watch food chain by constantly having new ideas for new watches.  They were revolutionary in the creation of diving watches and are always adding small additions to their classic watches making each model more stunning than the last.

Rolex’s “watch of all watches” is no doubt the Day-Date, nicknamed the President.  Rolex calls it “the leader’s watch” and that is exactly what it is.  It screams power and luxury.  It is worn by those who succeed in their lives and can afford what I call a perfect timepiece.  Until recently the Day-Date has been a 36mm watch.  If there were an official standard gents watch size, 36mm would be it.  It is the perfect size for the average sized male.  However, with the explosion in demand for bigger face watches Rolex could not fall behind.  They had to make a drastic change and they did.

Introducing the new Day-Date II:
The case is almost 14% larger measuring in at 41mm (1mm larger than the Submariner, GMT-Master, Explorer, and Milgauss).  It’s bezel too appears much larger.  Although I do not know the exact width, it must be significantly thicker than the Day-Date.  The black marble dial on the 18kt yellow gold version is absolutely stunning.  Arabic numerals circle the dial and are angled in a manor that if the dial were to be a straight line the numbers would be legible.  The way they sit on the dial makes the 6 upside-down.

Besides the larger features the new Day-Date II President looks very similar to the Day-Date President.  Both have the same day and date features with a certified chronometer automatic movement.  The band looks the same president as the band used on the previous model as well, just larger (called the super president).  It is still water resistant to 100m (300 feet).

The new Day-Date II President is the standard for other luxury watches.  It is the classic Rolex design, the design that has made Rolex the most successful luxury watch company of all time.
