Rolex SA was founded in 1905 by the German Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. Contrary to popular belief, Hans Wilsdorf was neither Swiss, nor a watchmaker. Wilsdorf & Davis was the original name of what later became the Rolex Watch Company. They originally imported Hermann Aegler’s Swiss movements to England and placed them in quality cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were then sold to jewelers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from the firm of Wilsdorf and Davis are usually marked “W&D” – inside the caseback only.
Rolex has also made a reputation in watches suitable for the extremes of deep-sea diving, aviation and mountain climbing. Early sports models included the Rolex submariner, Oyster Perpetual Sea Dweller 2000 (in 1971). This watch featured a helium release valve, co-invented with Swiss watchmaker Doxa, to release helium gas build-up during decompression. Another sports model is the Rolex GMT Master II, originally developed at the request of Pan Am Airways, to assist pilots in transcontinental flights. The Explorer and Explorer II were developed specifically for explorers who would navigate rough terrain – such as the world famous Everest Expeditions.
Currently, with the rapid development of modern society, more and more people become fashion-conscious. They are always on the way of searching something stylish to keep up with fashion trend. Swiss watches are among the most iconic accessories on their wish list. Due to their fabulous look and accurate function, they are greatly sought after by most keen fashionistas. While, it is really a great fact that designer Swiss watches never come out with cheap prices. They are high priced, so most common people with limited budget have to give up the thinking of owning one. Replica Swiss watches are justto solve the dilemma.
Japanese replicas cost between $80 and $220 while Swiss replicas start from $250 and go all the way up to $1200. It can be confusing to see such a big price difference when every store advertises their watches as being the best available. I guess they can’t really attract customers if they say they offer medium quality. The $80 fakes are like shooting in the dark, I had a few that actually worked pretty well and looked decent enough; on the other hand, I had some that had spelling errors, broken hands and a really bad movement.
