When it comes to leaders in the world of luxury watches, it is fair to say that Rolex are sitting at the head of the top table and understandably so given the calibre of the high-end men’s and ladies watches that they produce…
Rolex were founded in London in 1905 and are headquartered in Geneva in Switzerland – home of some of the world’s most prestigious and well-regarded watchmakers. Rolex watches are utterly synonymous with luxury and quality and considered one of the ultimate status symbols and signs of success.
The beauty of Rolex watches is just how stylish and impeccably designed all their luxury timepieces are and with superb collections like the Rolex Daytona, Datejust and GMT Master. Some of their most striking luxury watches include:
Rolex Daytona watches were first produced in the early 1960’s and rapidly became one of the luxury watchmaker’s most famous collections. Original versions of Rolex Daytona watches from the era when they were first beginning to be produced are now nothing short of iconic – so if you get your hands (or more accurately, wrists) on an original Rolex Daytona watch from the 1960s then make sure you take good care of it!
One of the sport watches offered by Rolex, the Yacht-Master collection was first introduced in 1992 and has blossomed in popularity ever since. It is certainly one of the most eye-catching collections from the luxury watchmaker and one that is incredibly popular amongst their seafaring clientele – for obvious reasons. Rolex watches are, without question, the first name that springs to mind when people think about high-end timepieces and it is because of their collections like the Yacht-Master, that they have acquired such a lofty reputation.
The Rolex Milgauss collection has quite a contemporary feel despite the fact the series was first introduced back in 1956. It is one of the boldest and stylish collections from the luxury watchmaker but it only recently began production again (in 2007) after a near two-decade hiatus. A wonderful example of everything that is great about Rolex watches.
