Rolex Watches: Buy, sell & get a valuation at McTear's, Glasgow In 1905 Alfred Davis and his brother in law Hans Wilsdorf set up company together as Wilsdorf and Davis in London. Initially they imported Swiss watch movements and made these into wrist watches that were sold to jewellers who put their own names on them. It was in 1908 that Wilsdorf and Davis registered Rolex as a trademark. Rolex was recognised for the quality of their watches early on in the company’s history on receiving a Class A Precision Certificate for one of their watches. This Award was presented to Rolex by the Kew Observatory and marked Rolex as a superior watch brand as the award had only previously been granted exclusively to marine chronometers.

As well as establishing themselves as a manufacturer of superior quality, Rolex are credited with a long list of technological watch innovations. In 1945 they produced the first wrist watch to have a separate date counter, the Rolex Datejust, and in 1953 they produced the Rolex Oyster Prepetual Submariner, the first wrist watch to be waterproof up to 100m. Rolex is now among the best known, well respected and revered watch manufacturers in the world.

McTear’s are delighted to offer Rolex watches in most of their dedicated watches auctions which take place every five weeks, contact Sarah or Elaine to discuss buying or selling on 0141 810 2880.

My opinion about Rolex is a good investment. I also have Rolex watch which I want to sell now. My old Rolex is in excellent condition. Can you suggest any online shop where I can sell my rolex and at the sametime can buy a new Rolex too
