Of all the watches that I collect and sell, this is perhaps the only firm that needs little introduction, having built its business over the last century on high quality, innovation, and style. The Rolex Watch Co. of Switzerland, founded by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother in law Alfred Davis, would first establish his business in England (1908) before settling in Switzerland. By 1919, Wilsdorf had established the Manufacture des Montres Rolex, at a time when the movements were crafted in Bienne and the watches were hand-finished in Geneva. On average, more than 200 technicians are involved in producing a single Rolex wristwatch, quite remarkable
If one were to design the perfect everyday sporty or dress watch with an attribute like a strong presence on the wrist, they would design the Rolex Datejust. Even at 36mm the Datejust wears nicely on the wrist given its beefy oyster case and longer lugs. Every vintage collection, even a sport watch collection, has at least one Datejust. The present example of this must-have reference is in beautiful condition
