Rolex is one of the most famous names when it comes to watches. Many people dream of the day that they will buy their first Rolex.
Founded in England in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis, they have become one of the most reputable watch manufactures in the world. They are known for their watches which have become essential tools for professionals such as pilots and divers. Rolex has been to the depths of the Mariana Trench and has completed many ‘firsts’ for the Swiss watch industry and continues to be a leading name in the industry today.

Some of the most popular Rolex watches to appear at auction are the ‘sporty’ models such as the Submariner, GMT and Sea Dweller amongst others. These are great looking watches which offer a laid back look but they can also be used for a purpose. The Submariner and Sea-Dweller are both diving watches whilst the GMT is used for aviation purposes.
Some Rolex watches are designed only to tell the time and sometimes the day and date. Datejusts are perfect for everyday wear – light on the wrist and functional. Day Dates are perfect if you’re a busy professional who needs to know the day, date and time at a glance.
