What makes a Rolex unique? Every grown-up for sure knows what this brand name is. People say Rolex watches are expensive. True, but the reasons are justified. For one thing, Rolex made many innovations in creating the technology or buying patents that made wrist watches dust proof, water proof and auto winding.
They have earned distinctions on having wristwatches with a first like having the first wristwatch to show two time zones at once, a first to showcase a waterproof case, an automatically changing date on the dial and being the first watchmaker to earn chronometer certification for a wristwatch.
These attributes are not easy to implement. Technology may have evolved in so many ways but Rolex remain well known in the watch industry because they have stuck with technology that have endured over the years yet still produce the same results.
I guess it is natural to be somewhat surprised with the prices associated with Rolex watches but believe me, if you have an idea on the materials and technology used plus the quality end result of the wristwatches that they sell, you would understand.
Look for some pre-owned Rolex watches, try it on and check out the features. Even you have to agree that having a no battery watch is something else ;).
