Rolex is one of the most successful Swiss watch brands without any doubt, but some watch lovers have much misunderstanding about Rolex. Today let us talk about some myths of the famous Swiss watch brand together.
1, All the watches of Rolex are manufactured in house.
The official announcement of Rolex is that all the important components of the movement, cases, dials and bracelets are developed and designed by Rolex. Please notice that the perfect fake Rolex never declares that all the parts are manufactured by itself in house. According to the documents, all the related parts of synthetic sapphires are purchased from other companies.
2, Rolex never purchased any movement from other manufactures.
When Wilsdorf created the Rolex in 1908, he always purchased the movement from Aegler, becoming its biggest customer. In 2004, Harry Borer sold Aegler SA to Montres Rolex SA. At that moment, Rolex owned its exclusive movement factory. In addition, the movement that Daytona equipped were always provided by Valjoux and Zenith.
3, The value of Rolex will be increased a lot.
For example, we all know that the green dial copy Rolex Submariner is one of the most popular diving watches now. The price has been increased too much. If you have bought one several years ago, then you will earn much money if selling it now. But it all depends on the supply-demand ratio. The reason why these steel sport watches are so popular is because of the low output. Moreover, it is really difficult to get one Submariner now.
