The history of Rolex is inextricably linked to the visionary spirit of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, at the age of 24, Hans Wilsdorf founded a company in London specialising in the distribution of timepieces. He began to dream of a watch worn on the wrist. Wristwatches were not very precise at the time, but Hans Wilsdorf foresaw that they could become not only elegant, but also reliable.
Some of Rolex’s innovations include the first waterproof wristwatch, the first wristwatch with an automatically changing date on the dial and the first watchmaker to earn chronometer certification for a wristwatch.
