Rolex Cufflinks

While the rise in popularity of vintage Rolex watches is of no surprise to aficionados, collectors and industry experts, when it comes to contemporary luxury wristwatches, Rolex is also often the first brand that springs to mind. Not only is the company revered for its precision timekeeping and impeccable craftsmanship, but its name was designed to be memorable.

Rolex's enviable worldwide recognition can be credited in part to the genius of company founder Hans Wilsdorf. When the German-born watch dealer and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, set up their London enterprise, in 1905, they called it Wilsdorf & Davis, according to the traditional formula.

But Wilsdorf was determined to come up with another name that was short, would look good on a watch dial and was easy to say and remember in several languages. In 1908, he trademarked the name Rolex, and by 1920, he had moved the company to Geneva and redubbed it as Montres Rolex S.A.

But the main reasons for the brand’s success are its aforementioned commitment to precision and unflagging pursuit of innovation. In 1926, the company introduced the aptly named Oyster model. With a screw-down crown and case back, both fitted with rubber gaskets, this was the first truly waterproof watch.

Five years later, Rolex upped the ante with the Oyster Perpetual. That model’s patented Perpetual movement contained a rotor mechanism enabling it to self-wind. In another trendsetting move, in 1945, the brand debuted the Datejust, with a date window prominently displayed on the dial.

The company’s two most iconic models are sports watches. Although the Submariner, which debuted in 1953, was developed as a dive watch, its waterproof case, solid construction and good looks made it a favorite of adventurers and urbanites alike, including James Bond, who wore it in classics like Dr. No and Goldfinger. The Daytona, the racing chronograph made famous by Paul Newman, is especially sought after by collectors. Newman’s personal Daytona, which hit the auction block in 2017, sold for $17.8 million.

Questions About Rolex Cufflinks
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    A real Rolex watch does not tick loudly due to its mechanical mechanism. Because of this, loud ticking is one way to help identify a fake Rolex watch. However, if you hold the watch up to your ear in a very quiet place, you may notice a faint rhythmic sound. Shop a collection of expertly vetted Rolex watches on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A Rolex watch that is worn daily does not need winding. The Perpetual rotor uses the movement of your body to power the watch and it can hold this power for up to 70 hours. If you take off your watch for an extended period of time, more than the 70 hours, then it will need winding. Manual winding can be done by unscrewing the crown to the winding position and turning it clockwise about 20 times. Remember to screw the crown back tightly to reestablish its waterproof qualities. Shop a collection of authentic Rolex watches from some of the world’s top boutiques on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    No, the Rolex Datejust does not tick in the usual sense. This mechanical watch receives eight impulses per second, rather than the single impulse that is familiar from quartz watches. These impulses could be described as a kind of tick, but they create a much smoother gliding movement and do not generate a “ticking” noise. On 1stDibs you can browse a collection of authenticated Rolex watches from top boutiques around the world.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    The second hand of a Rolex mechanical watch appears to glide, rather than tick, as it sweeps across the face of the dial. However, it technically is ticking, just at a much higher rate than once per second, as a quartz watch does. It will “tick” eight times per second, giving it that signature sweeping movement as well as producing a much quieter sound. On 1stDibs, find a range of expertly authenticated Rolex timepieces from top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Rolex started laser-engraving the rehaut in 2005 in an attempt to make their famous timepieces harder to counterfeit. The Datejust was the first model to receive this treatment. You can shop a collection of expertly vetted timepieces from some of the world’s top reputable sellers on 1stDibs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    A new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watch is worth around $6,000. However, if it's encrusted with gems or vintage, it can cost as much as $50,000. 1stDibs has a great and vast selection of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watches.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Because platinum is denser than other metals, it is often more expensive to purchase platinum watches than gold. One of the most expensive watches sold was a Platinum Rolex worth $277,000.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Rolex uses only the highest quality melee diamonds with between D and G in color and IF in clarity. Every diamond is tested individually to make sure it is real.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 19, 2021
    An Oyster Perpetual on a Rolex watch refers to the watch's ability to run on the energy generated by the wearer's wrist movements rather than manual winding. At Baselworld in 2015, a variety of Rolex watches with a new-generation Oyster Perpetual movement were unveiled. Find a variety of vintage Rolex watches on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, Rolex watches are Swiss-made. The company operates out of headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. In-house factories located in Switzerland are responsible for producing every movement, dial and other component that goes into a Rolex watch. Artisans do much of the work by hand, and this painstaking craftsmanship is part of what gives the watches their value. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of Rolex watches.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Depending on what kind of watch you're looking for, one may be better than the other. For instance, if you want a highly functional sport watch, some of Rolex's models may be better for you. That said, the brands' watches are very similar quality-wise. The main difference is their appearances: While Rolex designs more traditional timepieces, Panerai is more contemporary and bold.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, Tudor watches are made by Rolex. In fact, you often see the brand name referred to as "Tudor by Rolex." Hans Wilsdorf introduced the brand in 1946 to sell wristwatches at lower price points than Rolex timepieces. The brand relaunched in 2009 and has grown in popularity since. You’ll find a large selection of both Tudor and Rolex watches on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, Rolex watches are generally a good investment, particularly if you buy them new. In most cases, Rolex watches retain their value when properly cared for, maintained and stored. Due to the effects of inflation, this means the selling price of the watches often increases over time. On 1stDibs, shop a large collection of Rolex watches.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Each Rolex model may be slightly different, but most models feature a crown at the side that lets you adjust the time. Gently unscrew the crown by twisting it counter-clockwise. Gently pull it out and let it click through two extended positions until it reaches the third extended position. Twist it clockwise to adjust the time. When finished, press it back in and screw it in, in a clockwise direction to keep the watch waterproof. Browse through a range of authentic Rolex watches from top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A Rolex watch’s second hand moves mechanically with precision, appearing to sweep the face smoothly without pause or interruption.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
