One of the most well-known watch manufacturers on the planet, many people yearn to own a Rolex watch. Whether it will be worn or stored away as an investment, fake Rolexes are often shunned because an authentic model is preferred instead. If you want to sell your Rolex watch online, there will be a lot of interest in it. So, why are Rolex’s many models incredibly popular?
A strong track record gained over a century
Having formed in 1905, Rolex made its first ever wristwatch a couple of years later. Since then, Rolex has gone from strength to strength. It made the Oyster in 1926 which was the world’s first waterproof watch. Rolex also designed Datejust which displayed the date – no other watch had done so before. Along with Clarks for shoes and Heinz for ketchup, Rolex is instantly recognisable as being a watch manufacturer.
